Alright... trying for the third time to upgrade my Raspbian Pi install from Wheezy to Jessie.  Going to strip down the installation as much as I can first, so the upgrade process has less to deal with.

This might be a bit draconian for some, but:

apt-get -y remove --auto-remove --purge 'libx11.*'

0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 295 to remove and 1 not upgraded.
After this operation, 1,166 MB disk space will be freed.

Nice.

If this were made into a full blown series of movies, with this style/director/energy, I would watch every one that comes out.

Well, today's off to a "great" start. Plumber appointment got cancelled on me. Parking lots were full. Almost got hit head on in the parking structure no less than three times. Had dashcam with me, so would have had proof it was their fault for speeding, driving in the middle of a two lane passage, and cutting the turn corner into my lane. WTF. 

takes deep breath It may be Wednesday, but it feels like a Monday on steroids.

Was watching Top Gear tomfoolery when I noticed they kept talking about smooth Chinese made roads in Africa. Wow. Those roads look amazing! Good job, #china

Yes.  I wonder HOW the people will pay for the roads in decades to come.

1-2am browsing of Google+ to clear mind of stuff and I see this post. Two thoughts:

1) This is the proper response to harassment.
2) That is a seriously bad-ass tango move.

 
 
I still ship these two in spite of how much they clearly hate each other.

The idea of using part of the chassis as fuel storage is pretty cool. Now just repurpose some of that hydrogen and get a drone that shoots out flames >:)

Okay, so I've been looking at gimbals. Mainly because I stated looking at the DJI Phantom 3 drone. But mostly because I like messing around with micro controllers and firmware. :)

The BaseCam stuff is awesome. 32bit 72Mhz ARM M4 controlling 2-3 brushless motors and using gyros to control everything. Super cool.

Got some accelerometers/gyros, got some servos, and got some I2C breakouts for PWM and GPIO. I'm either going to use my Pi(s)(400Mhz/32bit)  or I'm going to use my Teensy3.1(72Mhz/32bit) boards.

Great detail and explanation of how the setup/gimbal works. Especially liked the video feed at the end. That's some sweet stabilization.

Story
Tagline
Tech-loving, slightly off kilter, random-factoid-regurgitating, kind of guy.
Introduction
I'm just your typical tech-loving, slightly off kilter, random factoid regurgitating, camera loving, weird tech thing building, loving husband, overly cautious father, kind of guy. 

I spent half of my life growing up in Southern California and have spent the other half of my life in the Bay Area. My love of technology(and a good paying job) brought me to the Silicon Valley, but it was love and starting a family(and a good paying job), which has kept me here. ;)

I greatly enjoy photography and just shooting the breeze. Though lately, I've taken up 3d printing, micro controller project building, coding, and even got my ham radio license, though I've yet to engage in rag-chewing on my little 5W handie-talkie unit.

You'll find my various profiles all over the inter-webs. But this is where I spend the bulk of my time, on Google+ or in the Google Forums(The #deltabot forums mostly!).

I currently work for a technology platform centric company based out of San Francisco, but am fortunate enough to work out of the Palo Alto office, where I work with a very energetic and amazing group of engineers.
Bragging rights
Married to an amazingly straightforward, understanding, insightful, patient, and loving woman who somehow finds it within her to put up with me and the cloud of messiness/noise/random ramblings I bring with me. Proud father of an exceedingly energetic, unendingly inquisitive, and a paragon of positivity daughter. Both of whom remind me why life is wonderful.
