Hi everyone! I keep getting lots of emails from people asking where they can buy xyz to complete the tutorials and try out some of the things listed on CaptainGeek, well after I kept emailing people the same links i had a thought, why not setup an amazon affiliate store. Basically, i’ve setup a small amazon site with a small selection of products (only those used for the tutorials on this site + related ones), purchases and payments are handled by amazon, however a small percentage of the sale goes to helping fund the server this website is hosted on AT NO EXTRA COST TO YOU 🙂 so its a win win situation, please use the links whenever you can.
Well, i know i’ve been slacking lately on this blog, but heres a lil treat, I recently got an iPad and iPhone and bla bla, and soon got very tired of converting all of my mkv and avi content over to the iPad, so I made a little tool to simplify the process, it supports as input formats pretty much everything that VLC does, including: xvid / flv / mkv / mpg etc, and outputs all files into .mp4 H264 🙂
Its free to use and released under a beer-ware license… i.e. if you like it, donate me some £ for some beer 🙂 there is a giant button in the app, you can’t miss it =). Here it is anyway: iPad Ripper
Requires: Intel Based Apple Mac running Mac OS X 10.6 or later.

Ever wanted to turn your boring netbook into a fully fledged lively Macbook Nano, the worlds smallest Mac OS X powered machine!?! well now you can! The how to below covers all the aspects of getting Mac OS X 10.5.6 Leopard working on your EeePC S101, but should work similarly with any Atom CPU, Intel Chipset Netbook. The best thing about all this is that Mac OS X is IPV6 enabled out the box!
Firstly, the finished product.
Out the box most things work, however once a little tweaking has been done the following are fully working:
- Sound (Output Only)
- Graphics (With Quartz Extreme)
- Network (WiFi Only)
- Battery Indicator
- Bootup / Shutdown
- Speedstep (battery life)
- + Anything else i can think of… …
