I bought my Nokia N97 early July, just a few days after the Australia release. I’ve been enjoying this great device since then desspite its bugs. The most notable of which was that unlike my previous Nokia S60 it would not cooperate with iSync. Thankfully the recently released firmware update (V20.0.019) fixes this problem.

Recently I set up an encrypted file system so I could do rsync backups to a secured location. What you end up with is a mountable file system that you can use to securely store data. Debian offers an easy way to set up encrypted file systems using the LUKS standard with the cryptsetup package. You’ll need to enter a decryption passphrase to mount the volume whenever the system boots.

I just discovered that Mercurial supports named shortcuts for repositories. This is great for when you want to be pushing and pulling from several repository URLs without typing their full locations.
I’ve implemented IDLE support into OfflineIMAP. For the last day or two I’ve been using this and I’m loving the instant email notifications. I emailed the original author and plan to work with him to get the code included into an official OfflineIMAP release.
