Etch & Terratec Cinergy Hybrid T XS

As Linux is my main OS I always wanted to make my USB DVB-T stick work with it. Luckily this worked and thanks to some very good HOWTOs (look here and here) I managed to watch TV with Etch. First of all you should have a look at the Em2880 wiki and see if your USB device is supported. Then make sure those packages are installed on your system:

  • build-essentials
  • linux-kernel-headers
  • mercurial
  • dvb-utils
  • kaffein and/or xine

WP Theme "MDAGM" released

This is the release of my first Wordpress theme: "Modernpaper Dark And Green Mod". As already mentioned, it's based on "Modernpaper 1.0" by Performancing, so most of the credit goes to him.

This is what I did:

  • changed colors and fonts in css file

  • minor style modifications in css file

  • added support for tags (Wordpress >= 2.3 required)

  • added tag cloud to right sidebar

The original theme and of course my modification is released under GPL.

If you like to convert an existing "Modernpaper 1.0" to "MDAGM" just overwrite your previous "style.css" (make a backup first!) with the modified version.

Here's a screenshot (just in case I change my website's theme again ;-) ):

A new theme - again

I was still looking around for a new Wordpress theme and finally found one which I liked: "Modernpaper" by Performancing. The layout is simple and clean and the only thing I didn't like was the color scheme. I wanted something darker with some green in it. So I started changing Modernpaper's css file here and there and did some minor modifications to the top navbar and a few other elements: when reading a post in single view it's tags are now listed at the bottom. What came out at the end was "Modernpaper-dark-and-green-mod" theme. You may download it soon!
