Just as long as it doesn't mean I've got to buy an iPod and install iRule
Is there a handy infrared device to use...or is that those programmable mediacentre things you mentioned, Dave?
Maybe I need to get my unused epad out and see if it can be rooted/jailbroken...
Perhaps koolie will report back after some playing with linuxmce and let
us know if one can run as root.
If so then could easily run my LPTout app and use the IR interface for added flexibility.
Because it is 3.3GB, and my monthly allowance is 5GB, I ordered it from the disc writing service at Linuxcd.org.
I have just received an email from them telling me that they have just added it to their store.
So now everyone who doesn't want to d/l it can grab a copy.
It seems to be fairly safe to return to the village now, do I'll do a brief report on MCE.
Yes, it will run as root, and it would benefit greatly from running on Puppy.
It runs on the dreaded Kubuntu ATM.
It is really heavy weight stuff.
Only to be attempted if you are really serious about automation.
I'm not, at this stage.
Apart from my normal curiousity and interest in this kind of thing, I thought it may have been an alternative way to set up a video remote monitored security system that I am about to embark on for a building, or at least use some modules out of it.
It is overkill for that, and there are no modules.
It is brilliant stuff, but not for the faint-hearted.
When we have PuppyMCE I will get more interested in it.
