Meteor for Mobile

I was watching the Meteor for Mobile -- August Devshop SF I decided to do a quick dive.

From the terminal in my sandbox app I typed the following:
$ /meteor/m2 meteor add-platform android

Then after the install:
$ /meteor/m2 run android

The end result was the following:

No Java SDK to simulation software...just pure JavaScript in Meteor!

Getting Silverlight on Firefox running on Ubuntu Linux 12.04

As a Time Warner customer I wanted to watch some programming on my desktop that uses Ubuntu 12.04 as the operating system. The steps below install a pluggin for the Firefox browser. Here is what I did. From the terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T):

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pipelight/stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pipelight

Then, start Firefox and type about:plugins in the address bar and hit enter. Pipelight will install when you first open the browser. After the installation is completed you should see "Silverlight" in your plugin list and you are ready to go.
