iPhone 3.X Firmware With Cydia Installed Running Out Of Disk Space

If you have installed Cydia on your iPhone or iPod Touch running 3.X firmware there is a good chance that after instaling a bunch of applications you could get to a point that you are running out of disk space on the root partition. By default the root partition is going to only be 500MB and so far I have not found a great way to resize this so it is much easier to resolve using the below method. Cydia does a pretty good job of relocating a lot of the folders from the root (mounted at /) partition to larger var partition (mounted at /private/var).

Upload Files To DotNetNuke With The Rich Text Editor, Track File Clicks After Upload

I used DotNetNuke a long time ago and was suprised to recently learn that there is still a large amount of people using the software. There are even more folks that installed it a long time ago and lack the resources to upgrade to a more up to date software package so there is still plenty of work to be done doing maintenance on sites using the DotNetNuke software. While many things seem really outdated there are still some cool features so the software can be updated to bring people a bit more up to date.

I have an iPod Touch 2G that is fairly messed up and both the power button and home buttons are currently not working properly which makes taking screenshots much harder than normal in iPhone firmware 2.X and 3.X. If you have installed Cydia however on your iPhone or iPod Touch then you can launch the screen capture from the command line without issue. Once you have taken a screen capture you can then email the photos to yourself or SCP (Secure Copy) them to your computer. To launch the iPhone screen capture utility from the command line follow the directions below.
