Re: Do you still use n8x0 in 2015 ? How ?

My daughter uses it for playing music in her room and taking notes. Alas, it's starting to come apart. We have a rubber band wrapped around it to keep the top & bottom halves together. :-)

Re: Add drives to the web file manager?

Wouldn't you need either an app from that vendor or at least an open API? Seems like you're stuck without cooperation from DropBox, Box.net, or whatever.

Re: Dialcentral 1.0

Re: Dialcentral 1.0

I fired up DC the other day on my N810 and it failed to log into Google Voice ("not accessible"). Is anyone else having this problem?

Hi, eurekus! Welcome to the forum. Have fun with your N810.

Thanks for the YouTube XL link. I added it to the "Useful Mobile URLs" wiki page (see link in my signature).

Re: ANNOUNCE: Diablo-Turbo first beta available

Sorry for the dreadfully late response, but no -- I don't have ASUI. But I haven't had these problems for some time (maybe because I finally replaced the battery), so no worries. :)

Re: Small problem with a persistent mouse cursor

Have you installed EasyDebian, and did you use that to install IceWM? If so, you could try posting your question on an EasyDebian thread.
