25224 CM and other firmwares
How reliable are 'aftermarket' firmwares like CyanogenMod, AOKP, Omni?

Recently I got myself a Galaxy Ace 3 phone but it's a bit full of shite. I'm new to modern smartphone OSes - the last time I used a phone like that, it ran WM2003.

What am I in for?

I simply got myself a new number. Seems to be working all right. The old SIM card I shall leave in the old phone.

Now, to the camera thingy. It seems there is quite a number of third-party camera applications for Android. I hope one of them will be able to save those damn video clips. If it doesn't, where the problem might be?

The camera problem seems to be firmware-related. I. o. w. using a third-party app won't help. But I've got a worse problem. The phone simply doesn't go to sleep. As far as I understand, something within the Android System group keeps it awake - the counter for 'Keep Awake' request within the CyanogenMod's Privacy Guard has just passed 960 requests.

It barely lasts a day when simply lying on the table.

Is it just me?

Something has happened to the upgrade routine recently. Usually I'd click the 'About Firefox' from the main menu and hit 'Check for updates'. Now it simply gives me 'Updates available at mozilla.com/firefox/'. No 'Upgrade to Firefox ${CURRENT_VERSION}'.

I've for a long time been pondering starting up a blog. I'm joining an already saturated market but as everybody believes - mine has a special tint.

I've not put any content on it yet but I've set up the layout and design and have some articles / blog posts ready to go up when the time is right.

I don't want to make a living off it nor have thousands read my every update, but a few readers would probably make it a worthwhile hobby.

How do I go about getting an initial readership? Anybody done anything like this before?

I don't think I've ever come across an app or bit of software that handles long-term projects, repeating timetables, to-do lists and a calendar together in a satisfactory way.

Currently I use an online spreadsheet for planning my finances, long trips and work-related training on a scale of years, Google calendar for meetings and events on a scale of months/weeks, and an app on my phone which chimes with reminders of routine tasks.

It occurs to me that these things should surely be integrated. What does /g/ use?

Ah, that's beautiful. I get all weird over seeing properly organised notes, being that I am genuinely a sad-act that loves stationary. I may treat myself to a black A4 filofax just to hold documents together, soon.

I'm considering trying an app called Jorte, which seems to fit all of my requirements thus far. It's not much to look at, but if it's functional it would be really nice to be able to replace the dozen separate ways of recording things I currently use. Unfortunately it's another regularly paid service rather than a purchasable bit of software.

If this doesn't work, there's a few apps out there that merge Google Tasks and Google Calendar into one interface. Then I can just add a custom calendar on top of my regular one containing my daily routine.

I'll let you both know if it comes together, or if I'm just piddling away my time.

I asked my son what he did at school today. In coding he learned how to create a game in Scratch. He's in Year 4. He's looking forward to being in Year 5 because then he can go to their after school programming club.

When I was at university, nevermind at school, they made us do the European Computer Driving Licence and that was little more than being able to do the very basics on Microsoft Office.

Anyway, what I'm getting at is do you think I should buy him a Raspberry Pi? Although I'm known as the techie guy at work (today's task was showing someone how to add a web page to their favourites) my computer knowledge is rather limited so I wouldn't really know what to do with it.

Just seen that the Pi Zero has come back into stock here: https://thepihut.com/collections/raspberry-pi-zero/products/raspberry-pi-zero

You can get it with an 8GB or 16GB SD card and 'essential kit' to get started for about £20 including postage and packaging, probably worth a punt for that price. You'll want to get in quick though as they're selling out fast (already many of the other options without SD cards have sold out).

By the time you've added a USB hub and all the necessary adapters, the Pi Zero isn't much cheaper than the Model B. The Pi Zero is great for integrating into other projects, but it wouldn't be my choice for a general-purpose computer.

I want to try presenting and regularly updating information using a 3D model of earth (see the attached amazing rendering). I have two ideas, the first being a website featuring a movable globe, with clickable points that I could customise and regularly change, bringing up a little article I've written for that time period.

The problem is that I have precisely fuckall knowledge of HTML, HTML5, javascript, website design/hosting, or WebGL. I have considered sticking something like the following plugin on a Wordpress site, though the coder doesn't provide installation support:
http://codecanyon.net/item/earth-viewer-3d-globe/2283700

I also found similar projects called Planetaryjs and WebGL Earth:
http://planetaryjs.com/examples/rotating.html
http://examples.webglearth.com/examples/animation.html

My second idea is to use some sort of animation software and regularly produce videos for YouTube featuring a model which spins to the point I want, shows the corresponding article header and an overlaid link, then moves on to the next location. I imagine it would be possible using software like this:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDwRI4LH4_I

Assuming I'm just looking for the quickest point from A to B so I can start putting up my information, which should I try? Are there more practical methods I'm missing? I'm looking for the presentation to be as minimal as possible, and ideally as close to my picture as possible.

You can post a job description and freelancers will bid for the job, like a reverse auction. Avoid the lowest bids, choose someone with decent feedback, don't be afraid of hiring someone from Umbongostan. Define your project requirements as clearly and concisely as possible - clear requirements keep costs low and reduce risk.

It's been a while since I was up-to-date on what made a decent display (the last time I was buying IPS was the new big thing), and it seems to be difficult to find the sort of information I'm after.

I'm looking for something that's 16:10, 24-28", and would want to expand later with smaller panels in portrait. For the expansion, it needs to have a native resolution that would be easy to match P/L and smaller bezels would be a bonus. (The expansion requirement is making searches difficult.) It needs DVI and multiple HDMI inputs. I don't really do AAA gaming, so standard (60-75) refresh rates will suffice. Budget around £300-400.

Could either of you recommend some decent panels that would fit?

The image is a typical chan prank, along the lines of "the system32 file is a virus, delete it immediately" or "you can charge your iPhone in the microwave".

There's a major bug in iOS that bricks devices if you set the time to the beginning of the Epoch. For some reason the clock underflows, setting the date forward by ~584 billion years. This crashes the bootloader, so the device can't be reflashed in recovery mode.

So I've fucked up recovery on my phone, I should add it works completely fine right now.

Previously I've rooted it and installed TeamWin onto it. One day last year, Android was bugging me to update. I clicked yes and didn't realise it won't update because I've rooted and installed TeamWinReceoveryProject (TWRP). So the update failed and I thought nothing of it.

So the other day I wanted to make a backup of my phone and tried to get into TWRP only I go into fastboot now and when I select recovery it just reboots. Anyway I can fix this so I have TWRP back?

23464 Personal email and domain
Gents, I need help. Help with something so basic that I fear you will look down upon me and maybe even laugh.

I want to buy a domain and not host any site but try to use it as a personal email address. You know, like the kind Mike@Mikescoolwebsite.co.uk. I am not sure about the whole procedure. I tried to buy a domain name from godaddy a few minutes ago, and I was under the impression that an email address comes free with the domain name, but apparently that wasn't the case. They had some other extra options where they wanted me to pay £x/mo for an email address.

Also, I tried asking one of my mates, but he was sleeping, and after apologising for waking him up, he told me to buy a domain, and let him host it on his servers, because he will let me have as many email address as I want. I was happy with that, and I told him I will contact him tomorrow. But then I started thinking; since he has the servers, doesn't that mean he can basically look at all my private stuff?

Can someone hold my hand? Please?

A mate of mine recommended DNSimple. I was about to sign up but then the tight bastard inside me wondered if I couldn't save myself $5 a month by going for some sort of free alternative.

It occurs to me that since my website is non-commercial and intended for local folk, I could just leave it as an IP address and disseminate a tinuyrl or something.

Given that I'm hosting from home, would this represent a security risk of some kind?

Thanks for the reply.

There's a risk of your IP address changing, meaning you'd have to regenerate the links each time, and potentially anyone submitting anything to you (form data, cookies, etc.) could end up sending it to the wrong place when that happens.

A lot of ISPs offer static IPs for free or for a tiny charge. And such ISPs generally offer much better service than the big providers anyway.

Dynamic DNS is available for free from a number of providers (afraid.org, freedns.io) although I can't vouch for the quality of service. These services will allow you to direct a domain name of your choice to a dynamic IP. They should be fine if you don't need absolute reliability.

If you don't want to spend £5 a year for a .org.uk, there are free domain names available for a few TLDs. There's no catch, but you should be aware that these free TLDs are frequently used by spammers. Email you send from an address with one of these TLDs is highly likely to be filtered as spam. If you aren't planning on running a mailserver, then this won't be a problem.

They're also generally considerably more expensive, and have some other limitations. TANSTAAFL, and all that. You're talking about spending an extra £20 a month to save £5 a year.
