So, I set up ads on ECC as planned, and started advertising. It's going pretty well.
Next up, Facebook logins. I've looked at a few plugins and I think I'm going with this one here: http://mybbmodding.net/forums/showthread.php?tid=180
Has all the features I think I'll need, it's pretty easy to set up, and I can even have it post a link to the forum when a user registers using it, which I think is cool. I should find a way to make the Twitter app do that ;)
I got the parts for that laptop in the mail today. A 512 MB DDR SODIMM card and a laptop screen, paid about $55 I think for the parts. Much better than what my local computer parts store wanted, $75 for that screen is too much for me.
So it's all working, I installed XP's updates and a few other programs I commonly use such as Trillian. Now I'm on the Ubuntu installation, upgrading to 11.04.
Now I'm wishing for a larger monitor for my desktop, the screen on that laptop is at 1600x1200, while the desktop LCD is 1280x1024. So much space...But I can't afford a monitor right now.
Well, I better get back to working on Facebook logins.
