Manually changing the PSP’s RSS feed file

There is a way that you can manually change the psp’s RSS file w/o having to go site to site just to subscribe to the rss feed. The file is in the /PSP/RSSCH¬† directory. If you have subscribed to atleast one RSS feed, a file should be in that folder. If you havent subscribed, then subscribe to one otherwise there will be no file there.

Now most of this file is in Binary, however the url to the rss feed is in plain text, so all you have to do is find a link that contains the rss feed, copy and paste it (change the description if you wish), save it, and try it out. Be careful though, it is hard, with some sections, to tell the difference between the RAW and BINARY parts of the file.

Note that this has nothing to do with hacking or breaking into the systems, rather its just changing the contents of a file on the psp

Freebsd mascot to be changed

For us FreeBSD users, im afraid that the publishers are going to change the FreeBSD mascot. As quoted on slashdot (http://bsd.slashdot.org/bsd/05/02/09/1955251.shtml?tid=152&tid=7), the person who comes up with the most appealing logo will win 500 dollars (in usd).

I havent seen any new mascots just yet, but i will update you when i find some

For those who do not know what FreeBSD is, FreeBSD is a Unix based distro ( Unix is a much better alternative to windows ). Some have said that this distro rocks (infact alot of my friends state that FreeBSD is awsome), but others say that it just plain sucks. I have never used FreeBSD or any unix based distro, But they say that the newer versions of FreeBSD are very easy to use and an excellent choice for those who are tired of windows.

my experience with hippiepay

It may seem like a scam, but its true…you can make money (both in SL and in RL). The object is simple. Just fill out a few surveys, or hit 7 pages on one website, and you get paid. The amount varies, they will usually tell you about how much to expect.

One way to really gain lots of money is to become an affiliate. When you do that, they will give you an atm which you rez on your parcel and people use that to go to their website. When someone makes money off of your atm, both you and them get paid. So what you do is become an affiliate, click on your atm, fill out some surveys and get paid almost double the amount they estimate.

Its not a gimic, its true. infact i made 571 lindens a few days ago (march 11th to be exact).

i think they have a shell out limit though, they stopped paying me after making 571 lindens :*(

Why Linux is better

For those who are considering switching from windows to linux, here are a few reasons why:

ubuntu on the ps3

At first glance, its pretty cool to run a desktop operating system on your ps3 gaming console. Of coarse you can run ubuntu on other consoles (such as the PSP, and the Xbox for example), but what really kills it for me is how deathly slow ubuntu runs on the ps3.

On the ps3, it takes about 2 to 3 minutes to boot up. After logging in, it takes about 30 seconds to get into gnome (i dont know how well kde works on it, it probably goes slower because of all the stuff kde features).

Another thing that really kills it for me is the fact that i cant get any OpenGL acceleration.  Not getting any OpenGL acceleration is what prevents people from playing games on linux. The game may run, but it will run deathly slow, or the game will not run at all. Some games give you the option to disable OpenGL acceleration, but very few do. Supertux is the only game i know of that allows you to disable openGL acceleration.

Aside from that, the ps3 only has 256 mb ram and thats the bare minimum requirement for ubuntu, so after ubuntus finished loading, you only have about 2 to 4 mb ram left (at most).

So you may just try using YDL instead. YDL is more optimized for the playstation then ubuntu is.
