Hacking a Fonera Router

A few people have asked about more details for the wireless bridge I’ve set up within my local network. You can find more information about it here. Its a pretty simple process and you end up with a router running DDWRT.

I’ve got it set up to bridge the ethernet port into the main wireless network here.

The Year of 1582

Calender

Switch your calendar to October 1582 and take a look – you’ll see something resembling the above image. There is a simple explanation for this though. In the year of 1582 the Pope decided that to correct the accumulation of time over the year they would remove the period of time from 5th October to 14th October to compensate.

Pope Gregory XIII, whom the modern calendar is named after (Gregorian), also established a system to prevent the accumulation from developing all over again. Every four years divisible by four would continue to be a leap year, but years divisible by 100 would not, unless they are also divisible by 400. The year 2000 was one of these special years that comes once every four centuries. 2000 is divisible by 100 but also divisible by 400 and therefore it is designated as a leap year.

Google Latitude API Non-Existance

I’ve just written a request for more information from Google as I’m astounded to find no accessible API for Latitude. I find that completely shocking on their part.

I’ve looked on the AppSpot site and here in the group and I’ve not seen a definitive answer as such to this question. Is there an accessible API to update my location on Latitude? I already have my location via GPS elsewhere and would very much like to bridge this over the Latitude and update my location there.

I see that at present, this is not possible through existing Latitude services, however I’m interested in knowing whether or not Google plans to introduce this in future and if so – a possible time frame for doing so. I have an application that I would like to use this functionality in.

Scott.
