My first attempt at 3d printing tonight. It's an ingress portal key. Banana plug for scale.

Wat een geneuzel steeds met die flash-plugin van Adobe. Er wordt elke zoveel weken weer een ernstig lek gevonden. Prutsers! En bij installatie moet je telkens goed opletten dat je niet per ongeluk een-of-andere vage evaluatie-versie van een anti-virus installeert.

Yep... het lijkt wel Java :-) Alleen daar hebben ze nu eindelijk wèl die irritante bloatware uit de updater gehaald...

Playing around with an LPCexpresso LPC1347, getting a bit frustrated with the IDE. The Linux installer is still 32-bit (welcome to the 20th century) and requires a whole bunch of 32-bit/i386 binaries to be installed first. All of this results in just an evaluation version of the tool chain with an 8kB limit. One of the nice things is ability to do step-by-step debugging (haven't tried that yet).

I wonder if there are any good alternatives, like something simple with a Makefile.

Subversion is digging its own grave by insisting on not being able to interoperate with local checkouts created with slightly older/newer clients (minor version change).

I'm creating new projects with git and use subversion only for legacy projects.

It helps you make the right choice! :-)

Very interesting talk about an optimized FM demodulator for use in gnuradio, approximately 10 to 20 times faster.

That nice approximation is only useful before decimation. After decimation the error is too high.
Well, one can't have everything for free :(

Checkstyle for Eclipse can be such a headache to configure ... makes me want to chop down the stupid TreeWalker thing.

Rather disappointed in trying to get ubuntu to run on a #RIoTBoard

The flash tools and image files provided by element14are a mess of old and new versions in a giant zip file. The ubuntu image is quite old (october 2013) and apt-get update no longer even works.

Another complaint: kernel modules do not even match the kernel image!

Finally got the Android 5.1 lollipop update on my phone (Moto G 4G - XT1039). My initial impression is quite positive, it seems the phone can now hold more applications active in the background. In particular #Ingress seems to resume a lot better.

Yes, 5.1.1 is nice (on my N7), I am holding off upgrading my Xperia Z3C until 5.1 comes out somewhere next month or so, given my experiences with 5.0 on the N7 I am not going to install that, it will be 4.4.4 -> 5.1.1

Playing the game 'solar quest' on a Vectrex game console that someone brought to the hackerspace. This is a game machine from around 1983 with a built-in CRT. The display is not drawn in the traditional way by painting pixels, but by drawing vector graphics, basically like a scope in 'X-Y' mode. Color is provided by placing a transparent coloured plastic sheet in front of the screen.
