BlackBerry PlayBook & Linux
While most phones, tablets, cameras and other USB devices … act as a mass-storage device, RIM has opted for another solution to the tablet PlayBook. That’s why I post this article. Indeed, the PlayBook looks like a CD-ROM with drivers to install for Windows ! Once the driver for Windows installed, the PlayBook looks again. It is then available as a network drive. The PlayBook indeed behaves as a network interface. The data is then accessible via the network. If …
Locomotives adding on Rocrail
After discovering Rocrail and saw its installation, we will immediately see how to declare a new locomotive. Once this is done, we will not be very far from what our ecos center can do ! First, you have to set the locomotive on your Ecos. From the menu “Object”, which contains a list of all network elements that we can declare we select “Locomotives.” A window with several tabs will open and we will inform each of these tabs to …
Rocrail & Rocview configuration
For those who have followed the previous articles, you must have read that I want to do a digital network to be able to control it via a computer, a phone or a tablet. The interest is to have an interface as user friendly as possible and especially to overcome the limitations of a central (in my case to the ecos ESU). Eventually, my network must be fully automated or not. Either the computer controls the trains following a schedule …

BlackBerry Storm device with Linux
This evening, an old post about the BlackBerry using with Linux. I use for this several tools : barry and barrybackup ; and also the OpenSync synchronization framework. I explain how use a BlackBerry Storm as a MTP multimedia player.
OpenSync is a synchronization framework that will be a platform independent and in particular Linux. OpenSync is modular : a core and plugins for content formats and different kind of connection types. It should allow it to be a solution to synchronize PIM (Personal Information Management – addressbook contacts, calendar events and tasks, personal notes, etc) data between mobile devices like mobile phones, PDAs (Personal Digital Assistant), desktop computer PIM tools.
As I’m used to use and contribute to OpenSync project, you’ll find a post about
