Linux on Toshiba A215 AMD Turion 64 X2

This is just a preliminary post.. more to come soon.

First of all: how to properly boot!

If you search in google about how to boot motherboards with recently (or not so recently) AMD 64 procesors you will find that everybody says use "acpi=off noapic" in your boot options but.. that will leave you whitout all the goodies of acpi (suspend, cpu freq, battery status, multimedia buttons, etc...), but after a lot of digg i found some kernel-list thread that address this issue:

In short, there is a problem with the local acpi timer with a lot of motherboards with AMD 64, so just add "nolapic_timer" to your boot options, and of course remove "acpi=off" and "noapic", and you will boot a linux with acpi and acpi enabled :)

"noacpi" works fine but "nolapic_timer" don't seem to work for me Toshiba A215.

I tested this camera for a client. I didn’t have the light running for more than 15 minutes. The battery lasted approximately 6 hours before recharging. The LCD, however, had a few dead pixels - never saw this before. Tried returning for exchange and had to put up quite a fight. Anyone else seen this? laptop battery
Verizon is about the only place you can get the authentic RIM product and matching door. Most other sites are out of stock and even when they are in stock they have the black battery door which looks like crap. new battery

Queretaro Sucks...

Acabo de llegar del antro, para ser exactos del cuarto antro de la noche, la razon: estan de hueva los antros en queretaro: 11:00 pm Primero: Fuimos al "Tantra", pues supuestamente iba a estar un DJ reconocido y que a chuchita la bolsearon y a la hora de la hora... de hueva. 12:00 pm Segundo: Seguimos en la misma calle (Constituyentes), y fuimos a donde dizque tocaba un grupo de rock: Oh Desilucion!, entramos al "Purgatorio" y para variar estaban tocando a moderatto y a belinda.. so.. lets get the fuck out of here... 1:00 am Tercer: Nos lanzamos al centro historico esperando enconcontrar un antro con dignidad, llegamos a uno donde supuestamente si tocan rock.. y .. 2-2, por que ni a 2-3 llegaron, cuando despues de 1 hora toco el grupo, empezo con timbiriche y para variar la siguiente rola fue de... adivinaron: moderatto y la perra de belinda again!... bueno al menos ahi si pusieron algo de caifanes, the doors y uno que otro alucine por el estilo. 3:00 am Cuarto: Sal

The body is our temple

Ayer como todos los dias sali poco despues de las 6pm, llegue a mi casa, visite el baño para la respectiva y despues me cambie: shorts, chanclas, camisa y listo para la alberca; 30 minutos despues y un dolor en los hombros apenas soportable por el nado, llego a mi casa, me baño, me veo al espejo y me digo a mi mismo: "que chingaos.. " y que me rasuro el pecho! se ve chido :)
