pizone – Raspberry Pi based Nintendo Zone access point

Nice project from Mike Chambers; pizone creates a customer Nintendo Zone access point, allowing you to get Spot and Street Passes from people around the world. You’re usually restricted to those you come within close physical contact with (along with your 3DS hardware of course).

Time to acquire some more Mii hats and outfits 🙂

How to debug IE7 silent crashes

Experiencing a problem where a page randomly crashes in Internet Explorer 7 with no warning.

Work-in-progress blog posting, but found this so far: http://groups.google.com/group/IEToolbar-Group-Bugs/msg/fd808abaa72524ea?pli=1.

The crash report requires more Googling it seems:

Android Flash player version weirdness

If I visit playerversion.com in my HTC Desire Z’s Froyo browser it tells me I’m running “FL 10,1,123,425”, but when I navigate to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > All > Adobe Flash Player 10.1 it tells me it’s version “”.

I’m still relatively new to Android so this isn’t making immediate sense to me; either playerversion.com‘s JS need adjusting or there are two versions of the Flash player on my Android device. Or something else?!?

Edit: Adobe’s own version test page mirrors playerversion.com‘s findings. cisnky suggested trying a pure Flash-based version detection method, which’ll be my next move.

Edit 2: This Flash-based test mirrors the above; that the minor version I’m running is “123”.
