"CSL G2" Android Phone ??? - New Toy in Town?

UPDATE: I have checked out this phone at a shop just recently, apparently, its only a UI imitation (which is not even close to the real thing, didnt see any tango icons). Guess I'll have to wait for LG or some company to release a low cost model, or until HTC reduce their pricing. (and note to anybody from CSL who might read this, Google Android is not just the UI .. its the WHOLE OS , and its Free/OpenSource, just grab it from http://source.android.com/)



CSL, a Malaysian phone brand looks like just had a new toy in town.



GEOGLE?? is that a typo or is that an immitation brand?

MYR 699 ~= USD 200.

Update: An anonymous commenter pointed to a page in CSL's own website regarding the phone. Price stated there is apparently cheaper, MYR499 ~= USD145



While the name is a straight copying of HTC Magic's original name, the product looks interesting. No info could be found at their website, probably they didn't realize where the people who looks for Android phones hang around at. Check it out here (page in Malay)

Perhaps this is the first arrival of affordable lines of Android phones.

Anybody know more info about it?


Update:

Adding simple popup to Plone frontpage

Here is a little guide for those who want to add a simple popup to the Plone frontpage for some purpose (eg: announcements, advertisements, etc).

Create a basic html file containing the content you want to appear in the popup. Upload it into $PLONE_SITE/portal_skins/custom (as Page Template) and for the sake of this example, name it popup.html

Afterward, create a Javascript file with your Pop-Up loader script. For example , this script:


function popup(mylink, windowname)
{
if (! window.focus)return true;
var href;
if (typeof(mylink) == 'string')
href=mylink;
else
href=mylink.href;
window.open(href, windowname, 'width=220,height=400,scrollbars=no');
return false;
};

popup('popup.html', 'My Popup');


Also upload this file into $PLONE_SITE/portal_skins/custom (as Page Template too). For this example, name it as popup.js

Afterward, in $PLONE_SITE/portal_javascripts , add popup.js as a new script into portal_javascripts…

HOWTO: Mirroring Yum repositories using Yum-Utils

As promised before in one of my previous post, a Howto on how to mirror and manage yum repositories using some of the utilities in yum-utils.

The first step is, well, of course, is to get yum-utils from fedora repository
yum install yum-utils

Reposync
Reposync is a utility for mirroring and synchronizing local copy of a yum/rpmmetadata repository.

This utility is very useful if you wanted to make a yum repository mirror. Before this, I used "wget -R -np -N" but this method is a little bit tedious and it doesnt work with repos that didn't use directory listing. Plus, it also download together additional site stuff that I don't need/want and it doesn't verify checksum of the downloaded packages.

Mirroring a repo using this utility is easy, just execute this command
reposync -r <repoid> -a <arch> -n
and the repo will be mirrored in a folder with the same name of the repoid in the directory you executed the command. Eg: you executed the command in /mnt/storage/mi…

Consolidated community site infrastructure on Plone

In Inigo, we believe in helping out local FOSS communities and help them grow. We help out in community events where we can, present FOSS talks, and provide some platforms for local communities to grow. One of such platform is our consolidated community site infrastructure on Plone.

The system/infra and its components was originally developed for the Fedora Malaysia website, while keeping in mind to keep it generic enough so that other communities could use the same components for their own community sites. The infra is already at a usable state, and we can add new sites easily with just a few clicks.

Features in this consolidated infra are:
Document/Content management (Plone built-in)Calendar system (powered by solgema.fullcalendar addon)Conference/BarCamp system (powered by collective.conference addon, which was developed for FUDCon Kuala Lumpur 2012)Blog (powered by Products.Scrawl)Simple yet powerful theming engine (powered by plone.app.theming/ Diazo) - Check out Diazo, you'l…
