Almost that time of year.

Posted 11-09-2010 at 06:00 PM by peonuser

Ordered more temp sensors. Might as well since they are free. The first set should be here tomorrow.

Reluctantly, set up a mswinxp machine as a home automation controller. Had to recompile some control code. The web side was pretty much plug and play.

An old ladder and some dead motherboards are about to make a maybe geeky xmas tree?

It's turkey chili night!

Thinking about setting up a server farm high availability commodity based cluster with old dell gx110's for the experience.

Ordered sample tempurature sensors for my cooking robot project.

Fixing to dunp ubuntu, if what I heard is true.

Cracked open a digital thermometer to see if I can interface it with the computer.

I am blushing.

Do not know whether I am helping or defeating the linux cause. But I am blushing from my alter ego name being mentioned again on the most recent Revision3/Tekzilla podcast.

Yea, the l293d's came in. Have to now follow God's hacker commandment of "Thall shalt solder".

Cooking Robot?

Posted 11-04-2010 at 07:06 PM by peonuser

My cousin asked me if I could build a cooking robot. I passed on that idea. But after looking at sous vide it had me thinking about interfacing different tools such as a digital thermometer to the joystick analog port. With a slow cooker, digital thermometer, and a computer, I might be able to make a sous vide machine that is programmable for next to nothing.

Anxious..

Can not wait to get some l293d chips on Friday. Do some serious robot building this weekend.

Listened to the "Cooking for Geeks" Author on Tllts. Talked about pretty much the same as the cnet interview.

Usually cook up a feast at Thanksgiving. Probably pass on it and just have something simple if not go out to eat.
