That’s right. The qiblalocator finally has its own blog. I’ve had almost no time in recent months to work on the site. That should change now insha’Allah.

One of the first things i plan to add to the site is….i forgot, this should go on the qiblalocator blog. See you there…

Reset your lost Ubuntu Password

If you ever get locked out of your Ubuntu installation as I found myself to be tonight, you can reset your password quite easily using the following steps.

  1. Power up your computer.
  2. Press ESC at the grub menu.
  3. Press e for edit.
  4. Highlight the line that begins “Ubuntu, KERNEL ………” and press e.
  5. Go to the end of this line, add rw init=/bin/bash and press enter.
  6. Press b to boot your system.
  7. Your system will boot up to a passwordless root shell.
  8. Type in passwd username where username is the username you lost the password for.
  9. Set your password.
  10. Type in reboot.

That is it! you can now log in using your new password. You can even reset your root password here but cannot login with it at the login screen.

T-Mobile T-Zones Outage

As of 8am this morning, T-Mobile seems to be having problems with their EDGE based T-Zones service. A call to T-Mobile’s customer service number confirmed this. They are said to be fixing the problem and hoping to get the service back up asap. No ETA was given.

If you are using a Windows Mobile phone you will get the “The remote party has terminated this connection” message.

UPDATE: The EDGE network is up and running as of sometime around 6:15pm.
