Covies camp 2010

Jumping on the band wagon of all things gadgety, I’ve grabbed myself the WordPress for Android app. Fear this technological stuff!

Henry Olonga visits Isleham

We were recently graced with a visit from Henry and Tara Olonga, preaching and singing at our outreach event for 2010.

Reconstructing heavily damaged hard drives

[EDIT: Hey guys, thanks for the feedback! Someone over at virtuallyhyper.com has an awesome write up that deals with SD cards specifically (but is highly relevant to hard drives too), with a set of much improved and updated scripts. I’d strongly recommend taking a look … Recover files from an SD card using Linux utilities] […]
