Early Autochrome portraits portray a young woman in a surreal dreamland, cloaked in a striking red cape.

I have 2 radxa 3 cuboxes and a wand board all thru XRDP. All with multiple remote tasks going on each. Works very well.

I've not got one as a main box because of requirements of my main work, but wouldn't hesitate.

 
Recently the USB port of my working laptop is broken. I can not use it without USB because for our development we need to upgrading the image to the board a lot. So i order a sub 100$ mini-ITX bare bone motherboard(with CPU) and a small PC casing online. While waiting for the new PC, i set up my dev unit rock2 sqaure working environment. After the mini-ITX board arrive, i use the memory and SSD from my laptop and install it on the mini-ITX PC. But unforunately, the sub 100$ mother board can not boot anymore suddenly after one day usage(maybe i wired the wrong front panel cable...). So i requested replacement. It takes so many days for them to process it... So i continue to use Rock2 Square as my working PC. After two weeks of using it, here is my report:

My work at radxa is very misc, i need to reply the messages/requests from the website, following up the hardware/software status, projects requests from other companies, need to send the agreements/invoice back and forward. I also need to work on the software development side. Basically Rock2 Square can basically handle all this.

The software i uses daily are:

1. Chromium browser and Iceweasel browser: I use Chromium browser for Gmail, google hangout and googling with vpn extension, i also installed many other extensions such as push bullets. Because there is no ARM version QQ im, which is used a lot in China, i have to use QQ on the phone. I use push bullets to swap information between Rock2 Square and mobile phone. I use Iceweasel browser for local networks such as local git web repository.

2. Mate-Terminal, for development. SSH to the local build server, build the image, scp back and flash to the board with rkflashtool.

3. Libreoffice, to generate invoice, presentation to PDF.

4. Eye of mate image viewer/GIMP photo editor.

Need to point out something:

1. Chromium sometimes fake die, sometimes some tab becomes "He is dead, Jim", this happens more when i am copying big image(1.8G) from network. I usually open a lot of tabs. What am i using is the model A, 2GB ram, which is not enough for nowadays multi tasking.

2. Disk space is limited and slow. 16GB emmc is really not enough, i have to delete the old image before copying the new one or i will get disk full. Scp from network to local emmc is 30MB max speed.

3. Response. I can not feel the lag for menus, task switching, opening folders. Loading documents is fast too. The CPU usage is low most of the time.

+Jay Maynard , I used you for a test on google today and hit a fun link.

I was testing the various "hot" match searchs in Firefox and wanted to see what various topics which could be disambiguated would turn up.

However this was one of them.

Interesting. Wonder what, if anything, they'll come up with.

So far no one reported hurt. Homes and villages are destroyed. Thanks for asking.

Ben Reardon’s Robot Guitar with Arduino and Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/04/17/ben-reardons-robot-guitar-with-arduino-and-raspberry-pi-piday-raspberrypi-raspberry_pi/

For those who find all this as interesting as I do, I’ll briefly describe the journey, from an account of early prototypes such as the Firewall Tambourine – which was a pivotal stage towards bridging that gap between realtime data and realworld.

This is very nice video of a big aircraft.  Is there any footage published of the drone which was flying over the field?

Don't know how good their practice is, but their sign and entrance appears in the episode "False Hearted Judges" of Law and Order, Criminal Intent, 2005 at about 12 minutes into the show(as measured w/o ads). Just after one judge is shot, scene. One of the ways I located the shooting location.

Very nice if off the track spot. Not many places which are so much the same as when original owners had them are still around. They did do original soda fountain drinks as well, have not been for a few years, and knowing the soda biz, the syrup has changed to where it may just not be the same to bother with. However for a small diner, it is a great location, and if you want an experience similar to what you would have had a long time ago, it is worth going for that alone.
