Wifi Tethering with Barnacle Working on Sprint Samsung Moment Running Android 2.2

The title says it all. If you’ve been waiting to tether your Sprint Samsung Moment to your laptop, the wait is over. Well, assuming that you have root access. You can read about rooting and wifi tethering over at http://www.sdx-developers.com

Specifically, if you are already rooted and looking for this EASY way to get tethering online see the thread here: moment wifi tethering how-to

I’ve personally followed the instruction and everything works without a hitch, although it is currently being *tested* so… ymmv. Many thanks to the guys over at SDX!

ubuntu & openoffice spanish spell check

It’s very handy to be able to spell-check your Spanish homework, and OpenOffice lets you do just that. To get it working, first you need to install the Spanish lanaguae dictionaries by running:

sudo apt-get install myspell-es

Then, in your document, just go to Tools > Language and pick Spanish for the line, paragraph, or all text – if you don’t see Spanish as an option, then click “more” and change the default language for the document. Ok?

Bien. AdiĆ³s.
