I think I'm getting over my Apple addiction. The clasp opened when I was taking my hand out of my pants pocket. Apple wants $229 to fix a $350 watch. What a screw.

I stumbled across this while Googling for something else. It turns out that a) VGA and friends use I2C to communicate with monitors and b) the I2C bus is exposed to applications which means that every laptop has a ready made I2C port for interfacing with electronics. This chap made an external terminal emulator in #golang  using the VGA port on his laptop. Nice.
Tinyterm: A silly terminal emulator written in Go. Tinyterm This post is about Tinyterm, a silly hack that I presented as a lightning talk at last month's Sydney Go User group 1. You can find the original slides online at talks.golang.org.

Buri under test. It didn't work immediately but subsequently I've determined that the computer appears to be working. Its just my serial port adaptor breadboard which has a bug somewhere. That's this weekend's job to chase down.

I don't see why the escapee needed to register a domain similar to that used by the officialdom. Nowhere in the article is it implied that the escapee needed to be able to receive email at the correct address. Even if that were the case, adding a Reply-To would probably have sufficed.

Although I know the "from" field can be set, I'm not sure how to do it, particularly on a mobile phone. That said I also don't know how much of a faff domain registration is.

A 1972 preview of the technical wonder which was a TV camera which could be lifted by one person. Think of this next time one complains that the two cameras in your pocket do not have sufficient megapixelage.

I've just returned the TV box back to +Virgin Media and they sent a co-ax terminator (left) which they absolutely insist be screwed onto the end of the cable out of the wall (right). Anyone see a problem? Edit: to be fair, there is somewhere where the terminator fits but it isn't where the instructions claim it to be.

most TV cables enter via a wall plate connection that would fit the terminator. If your installer took a short-cut then you will need to pick up a female-female connector (or coax wallplate with the plate removed.)

The run of PCBs for Buri, my home-brew 6502 computer arrived today. £20 for 10 delivered. Not bad. Let's hope the two days of re-checking the board layout pays off...

KiCAD for design and Seeedstudio for manufacture (note extra e). Eagle is probably slightly better but is non-free and limited to boards just a little smaller than this one.

Affordable. Silly. Decent. Reasonably priced beer, cheesy music and a good place for a post dinner drink and chat.
