New mobile phone virus?  A message from 3 hours ago in my friend feed (posted via Facebook Mobile) read:

I’m 8 1/2 pounds lighter thanks to the FREE trial pack of this new colon cleanser that I got! visit ExpressColon.net to get yours! zoR

Now, I’m not one to judge, but I’m pretty sure my friend wouldn’t admit to something like this.  There are a couple other instances of the message with a variable code at the end… in this case “zoR”

If it is in fact a mobile phone virus, my friend was using an iPhone.

Anyone else seeing messages like this?

As mentioned in the comments, this is happening to people who do not even own mobile phones. Remember to scan your computer for viruses/malware if your account posted the message.  And it probably wouldn’t be a bad idea to change your password at this time.

An update appeared on my appstore the other day for WordPress. With it came one feature that I was waiting so long for: Landscape mode.

So i’ve been playing around with my iPod Touch recently, diving into a different world by playing around with the file structure.

After learning that there are TWO ‘partitions’ on an iPod Touch, which I will refer to as just an iPod for now.  One for the operating system and one for the music/videos and such.

/private/var/*

This is pretty much were the big stuff can go.  Everything else is limited to about 300mb.  (I’m looking at you INSTALLER.APP!

If you create a symbolic link to there, you can install whatever you want until you fill up your iPod.

ANYHOW

I have Apache AND PHP running on my iPod. Does anyone know how to compile GD Library to the iPod?

This is “needed” so I can install a slick new photo browsing gallery and NOT be limited to the small sizes iTunes give you.

I doubt anyone will see this, but I can hope!
