File Recovery using Linux

Saturday, November 14th, 2009

TestDisk LogoIf You have accidentally deleted files or partitions are lost, take a look at TestDisk and PhotoRec. Both tools are great. PhotoRec is great for recovering files by type. You could select *.mp3 and all mp3 files which are recoverable will be found and recovered. Both tools does have support for many many filesystems. And, YES! FAT*, NTFS etc. are supported too. Both tools are available for many operating systems. This includes Linux, Windows, *BSD, UNIX and OS X. Nice work!

If You need a Linux live CD where TestDisk is included I recommend SystemRescueCd. There are many other tools available for doing recovery work for almost every kind of operating system. SystemRescueCd is based on Gentoo what makes it very attractive to me.

Tiny Core Linux

Friday, November 13th, 2009

I just want to write a note about Tiny Core Linux. I really like it. It is about 10MB in size and it boots with X and a very minimal Desktop in about 15 – 20 seconds using VirtualBox. I recommend to give it a try. Just download the ISO file and boot it. When booted you are able to install Firefox, gcc, GTK+, Text Editors and much more…

Telemichel   Telemichel

The radio tower of Hamburg, called “Telemichel (german)“. Okay, the right one is a little bit lame but it is a Warholdroid… :) The photos was taken with a HTC G1 and the software is called FxCamera. I don’t know the homepage, so if you wanna use it just just search for it in the Android Market.

A friend, atari, helped me rooting my G1. Thanks a lot! Now I am feeling free! Just look at his Blog post on howto do it by yourself. I installed the Cyanogenmod firmware which looks well done.

Now the phone is it’s money worth!

Currently I am trying to build the firmware from the sources found at GitHub. I will post more information about this…. ;)
