Re: Help Getting Jolla Phone

Absolutely true - paying cleared funds means you assume all the risk, and it's not something I'm advising with that sort of money. You might well find somebody perfectly trustworthy who does...

Re: Help Getting Jolla Phone

Like others, I would advise you to buy one that's already in the USA if you possibly can; it saves not only shipping costs and risks, but also any potential import duties or customs issues. If you...

What's the current state of play with Jolla?

This is not intended to be a "should I buy it?" thread, but I'd like to ask those who are using a Jolla now in January 2014: exactly how beta is it? I've read the reviews, the forums, the defenders,...

Re: Automate login to public access WiFi hotspots? Fon / BTWiFi

Some further updates. I've given up on doing this in perl, we'll get further, faster in python, and there's a suggestion to integrate it with an app already written in python.

Re: Automate login to public access WiFi hotspots? Fon / BTWiFi

Thanks for this, as you say it is an excellent place to start. I'm no programmer, so for the moment I'm just trying to provide proof of concept and demonstrate a use case.

Re: Automate login to public access WiFi hotspots? Fon / BTWiFi

Hmm... apparently, on some further reading, the FON and BTWiFi hotspots natively support autologin via WISPr, which is used in autologin apps for Android, iOS, etc.

Crude client implementations...

Re: Automate login to public access WiFi hotspots? Fon / BTWiFi

I don't have an N9, but I guess that favours a standard approach using wireless-tools and bog-standard Linux scripting capabilities, rather than an N900-specific app. This is more or less what I had...

Re: Automate login to public access WiFi hotspots? Fon / BTWiFi

This is the (relatively) easy part. The login form requires a POST, but it will be fairly simple to whip up an auto-login using curl. We can trigger such an action from dbus, as you say, or possibly...

Automate login to public access WiFi hotspots? Fon / BTWiFi

Until recently, the availability of free or reciprocal WiFi hotspots in the United Kingdom (e.g. Fon / BTWiFi) was not something that one could rely on. So, whilst I've been sharing Internet access...

Re: [ANNOUNCE] rtmpdump & get_iplayer

Reliability over 3G isn't an issue for me; with just a 1GB data package and a typical TV episode involving ~100MB of download, I think I'll be limited to downloading on my cable connection at home.

Re: Inotify & incron - methods, software, use cases

If and when we do get incron packaged for maemo, that gives rise to a new app idea. At the crudest level, someone could write a GUI for incrontab, which would allow to select directory, monitored...

There's a few ways to do that, none of them directly related to inotify.

Re: [Idea]program to instantly send new photos into pre-defined server or via mail

As I understand it, inotify asks the kernel to keep a watch on the given inodes and the kernel generates an event when those inodes are modified. The monitoring itself shouldn't cause any appreciable...
