The new installer helps easy flashing of Edison with latest Yocto Linux image! Makes it just click of buttons. For Linux geeks, have fun with making and flashing your own images the conventional way!
a) Power On message to identify power fails
b) Upload beacon messages every hour
c) Battery powered operation to support main power cuts
+ Low cost Arduino integration instead of Edison for first prototype
First SMS sent from Intel Edison via SIM900 Interface - I will probably make a detailed write up on this but fun Edison tip is
Edison doesn't need Software Serial for Arduino code - Edison has Hardware Serial!
Overall setup just took a little over 10 minutes to carefully plug the power and make no mistake to burn the board :-)
I tried to power Edison later with USB power but invain. Looks like it'd need dedicated DC power. (SIM900 is known to pull 2A of current - ha)
I personally would've selected a headline shying away from having quit my job to go riding. But life has a funny way of working out and I have now been featured, on www.officechai.com, as one of 11 people that have quit their job to walk a road less traveled.
I wish, the other 10, the best of luck in their chosen venture. Thank you officechai.

- AND NO, I AM NOT ON FACEBOOK for sane reasons
Where I live:
was born and brought up in Manipal, a coastal town of Karnataka state, INDIA. With
a beautiful lake, Manipal is a serene place to live and is also
called the University town, with a lot of educational institutions. I
currently live in Bengaluru for work. My long term dream is to settle back in Manipal doing my own stuff.
Outside of work:
have spent quite some years of my professional life in Manipal, when I
am not working, I used to spend some time at the beach flying kites
once in a while, drive alongside the beach or walk to the riverside,
take a boat ride. I love traveling alone[now that I am married, its a tad bit difficult to be alone] and I like talking to different
people. It is always nice traveling in trains, and buses when you get
to meet new people.
In Bangalore, I occasionally go watch a live play in a theater, ride on my bike exploring the food joints[someare on my Instagram stream
Apart from these, I like pencil sketching and water color paintings.. I like all kinds of music but cant get to stick to one genre for long time. My playlists are random.. I like playing football and I can say am above average at playing caroms.
Books I have been reading:
Garfield - At a book exhibit, I bought a bunch of them at a re-seller for Rs 50 then on I have like them like none other, I have been on a hunt for them since then.
Autobiography of Steve Jobs
Yaana (in Kannada) - By S. L Bhairappa - Story of a couple on a space ship that is never going to return back to earth - They are on their own and they have to move the programme forward.
My to-do list:
