Interrupts for the Arduino Uno - More than you might think!
Are you looking to make a program that requires a bunch of interrupts using an ATmega328 or ATmega168 chip (such as on the Arduino Uno, Nano, or Mini platforms)?  If so, you may have been disappointed by the  basic documentation  you can find on this matter...

Two fun "new" (to us) computers are part of this year's Christmas haul!
 
This is what I got for Christmas. Two NEW (to me) Apple Computers!

Apple IIc with matching Apple Monitor.

Macintosh Plus all in one.

Let's just say that the family was MIGHTY confused.

Found this handy on Tuesday: I'd already created a self-signed cert, and wanted to use that for a local (testing) deployment of a Tomcat web application.  Here are concise steps on how to do that: http://robblake.net/post/18945733710/using-a-pem-private-key-and-ssl-certificate-with

Hopefully I'll get the part milled out tonight using the techniques described herein. :-)  If so, I'll update this with some pix and possibly a video!

Gotta love this URL: "Capital One quadrupling size of its"... What could it be??? :-D Could it be my sweet digs in the Innovation Center 'The Garage'? http://www.bizjournals.com/dallas/blog/techflash/2016/01/exclusive-capital-one-quadrupling-size-of-its.html (Hint: Yes, I spoiled it :-P)
The Financial Services division in Plano founded its innovation space in August 2014. Its expansion is expected to be completed in summer.

Some pretty odd lil' programs on this Apple IIc I picked up on Craigslist for +Stacy Devino, including this rendition of the mid-80s Pepsi slogan​... Though if you look at the first computers I learned how to program on, you'd find similarly simplistic & silly things :-P
 
Forget #ClearPepsi. I found their original advert on the Apple IIc for plain ol' +Pepsi . oh yes, its animated!

Is It Broken? Try Leaving It On
Recently, I’ve acquired a bunch of vintage computer hardware from various sources, whether donated to me personally or stumbled upon during scavenger hunts through crazy places that used to be companies whose owners have pretty much turned into hoarders.  I...

If you ever find yourself needing to format a double-density (360K) 5.25" floppy, Windows can still do it:

format A: /T:40 /N:9

(40 tracks, 9 sectors per track, 1KB per sector)

Now to just find a version of DOS that the 5150 will actually boot with... unless there's a problem with my disk or my drive :-/

Enough to be Dangerous: Open a different browser during a Protractor test
Those of you looking to test AngularJS apps may have particular use cases where multiple instances of the page need to be opened to simulate multiple instances of an application running.  Say you have a chat client, and you wish to simulate multiple users o...

Story
Tagline
Engineer for a big bank by day, zealous mobile & Web programmer and life enthusiast by night.
Introduction
Software engineer & tester for lots of platforms from embedded systems to million-dollar enterprise business machines.  Stock options maven, and vintage music and television game show enthusiast.  Collector and semi-frequent wearer of fine suits & dress clothes.  Starting a collection of pinball machines, and share a large video game collection and a modest retro computer collection with my wife.  Formerly a scuba diver, composer, and getting back into percussion, so my perfect pitch won't be going away anytime soon.  Laments how "jack of all trades" is no longer a viable career path.
Bragging rights
Winner (and then mentor) at several hackathons & contests, including "Best M2M App" with SpeechPipe at an AT&T Hackathon in 2014. 2 Apps on the Android Market, 1 app on BlackBerry App World, 2 apps on Windows Phone Marketplace. Marched in the 77th annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in 2003. Won Call for Tapes in PASIC in 2002. Scored a 94% on the Nitrox test (for scuba diving) when I was only 12.
Work
Occupation
I tickle computers into doing my bidding.
Employment

    I do awesome innovation for Financial Services technology with a team of really smart developers in "The Garage."
  • Hewlett-Packard
