I saw this today and thought it worth sharing: Your browser does not support the video tag. From the FSF blog.
Unsurprisingly, the swiss army knife that is *NIX can solve an amazing array of problems without much fuss. For the past few years, I’ve needed to SSH into any of an array of machines behind many remote NAT routers. I’ve been getting by, until now, by directly SSHing to the router on the network I […]
The design is pretty simple – an Atmel ATTiny85 microcontroller talks to a DHT22 single-wire temperature+humidity sensor, and transmits readings once every two seconds via the ZigBee protocol. The next step is to design a small PCB to keep everything together. I’m not sure yet if I want to aim for battery-powered or not. […]
Our Pi Shield is progressing nicely. 5V SPI device running on a 3.3V SPI bus from the Raspberry Pi? Check. Version 1.0.0 testing complete. Bugs to be fixed, and version 1.1.0 to be released in the near future. Stay tuned!
It’s time again for another Project of the Month! December is a pretty busy month for most people, with holidays to plan/shop for, using up that remaining vacation time, and other end-of-year tasks. That’s why it’s particularly nice to leave monitoring your IT infrastructure (or your refrigerator!) to an automated system like Zabbix. One less […]
I think I’ll start writing about some of my favorite open source projects. If time permits, this’ll be a monthly thing. Not only to get some exposure for great projects, but to have a nice list of great projects I can refer to others easily. KiwiIRC As the very first project of the month, I’d […]
Today I finally managed to get lossless HD audio working from my Linux media PC over HDMI! I’ll probably update this post as time goes, but for now it’s a quick recipe of what I did: Configure a PulseAudio ALSA sink to use the HDMI output Video cards present HDMI audio interfaces in an interesting […]
Newly updated version of my Résumé is now online! Check it out! 🙂
Mostly as a reminder to myself… it’s important to have a cron job that verifies your RAID array integrity on a regular basis. (Once a week is what most hardware RAID controllers seem to use.) This is accomplished with a command such as: echo check > /sys/block/md0/md/sync_action Replace md0 with the device name of your […]
