What's been in my bag this week? (20150815)
I seem to have gone a bit wild with my new tool. I promise that future posts will be a bit shorter. My other excuse is that some of the below is fall-out from "the silly season", that week or two after DEFCON where news gets a bit odd. It's amplified sli...

Have ported the TEA5767 code for the Raspberry PI to the CubieTruck. Only had to remove the dependency on the WiringPi library.  In other words, I had to modify the 3-4 lines of code that opens access to the TEA5767, and had to swap out the libraries called.  Notes available.

The only new thing noted is an oddity with compiling.  The following works on the RPi but not on the CubieTruck (it triggers an "undefined reference to round" error):

  gcc -lm -o mute mute.c

However, the following does work on the CubieTruck.

  gcc -o mute mute.c -lm

Go figure...

Background project for the last 20 months has been conversion of data files from KnowledgeTree to homegrown document manager (MariaDB, Sphinx, Perl).  Had first estimated that it'd take about a year, turned out to be almost two.

In any case, it's done.  I can now go back to playing with the algorithms and experimenting with Sphinx's various features.  I'll also have more time to play with hardware (really want to get the Si4707 working on one of the boards here).

In reviewing the ICANN documents and responding to the request for public comment (described here ), I'm realizing just how much BS is blamed on ICANN by at least one registrar that I've previously employed.  It's not enough to declare "Shenanigans" but it'...

Just finished watching the Kali Linux Web App Testing course on Udemy. Worthwhile for beginners.  A basic number of tools and techniques were demonstrated.  The presentations are broken up into 5-10 minute chunks that allows you to experiment with what you just watched (without losing your place).  Recommend installing Kali, either on your desktop or in a VM, before starting the course.

Next project looks like it'll involve porting the I2C radio controls to run on the CubieTruck's DVK570 expansion board.

I've been rewriting Raspberry Pi code to avoid the wiringPi library and someone asked me: "Why?"  So...  Reasons for rewriting code to not use a library:

- it's good practice to know how something is done before using someone else's code (e.g., GPIO pin manipulation)
- a specific library can be too old, too buggy, or unmanaged
- libraries tend not to be comprehensive (they perform only specific functions)

Of course, the next logical step (after the above) is being able to add functions to other people's libraries.

Another reason, porting the code to other platforms (e.g., Cubetruck).

Hey, wait!  I still haven't acquired the CB4!  Now I'm two behind.
Just like the previous announcement, Cubietech will operate another product category other than Cubieboard series, we call it Einstein series. It's also a relatively complete computer module, but with more potential feature expanding ability. Now we deliver the first member of this family ...
