KitKat is for 512Mb

Re: Advice on making a RSS photo frame?

gphotoframe is great- https://code.google.com/p/gphotoframe/ but I let my joggler screen go dark now - it wear sout and goes blurry. I broke out a 2nd joggler I never used for a year - and the display was startlingly clear and sharp. requires ubuntu/linux-mint/lubuntu etc. - wget https://gphotoframe...

amahi.org "home digital assistant" dlna etc

Anyone tried www.amahi.org?

Joggler as Wifi AP router

I've been trying to use my joggler as a wifi router - it works for WEP ad-hoc - but will all the horror stories surrounding drive-by hacking, I want to use WPA. (WPA2 is definitely unsupported in ad-hoc mode it seems). I just can't get WPA ad-hoc to work with the internal ralink 2780 wifi card. it r...

Re: android, auto dim but never off?

I used android for a few months, then the flash drive died :-(, I went -back- to linux mint as the screen shutdown to off (not just black) while still responsive to touch is what I missed most.
