To blog or not to blog...

Posted 01-20-2006 at 06:49 AM by bulliver

Well, I have a blog sort of thing on my personal site that I never update, so I figured I would start up this blog, so I can ignore it too.

I guess I could mention that I am taking a road trip down to Victoria next week to visit an old friend, and check out the Mad Professor "Live in Dub". Should be a great show. That is all.

Some notes I made regarding matrox frame buffer in Gentoo - kernel 2.6.11

Posted 01-19-2006 at 10:26 PM by tw001_tw

#1 - Using the Matrox framebuffer
TIP: Do NOT, and I repeat, DO NOT, compile into your kernel "vesafb', or "vesafb-tng" if you choose "Matrox Acceleration".

cd /usr/src/linux
make menuconfig

This is what you need (how I did it):
Under Device Drivers -> Graphics support[*] Support for frame buffer devices[*] Enable Video Mode Handling Helpers[*] Matrox acceleration[*] G100/G200/G400/G450/G550 support[*] Multihead support...

My Opic Views

Posted 01-19-2006 at 08:33 PM by Woody Ochs

Sure, why not? Myopic people can see real well up close, so if we restrict this blog to matters close at hand then the defective vision should serve us well. No big pictures though. So what's near by? What's next door? A vacant lot is next door, and it's near by. It would also sell for an arm and a leg if it were for sale at all, and there's little need to ask why: There are just all sorts of people like me and not nearly so many plots such as that - or are there?
I'm myopic,...

OPEN SOURCE HARDWARE

Posted 01-18-2006 at 03:29 PM by cyb0rg777

The electronics hobby seems to have died down since everything became disposable.I have built the LIRC and NOPPP .I recently installed Ktechlab 0.3 .I am a novice to PIC programming and assembly code,but I was able to simulate a working PIC circuit in a few minutes.PICs have been around for what?Ten years or so?They don't seem to be disapearing .
I would like to see the success of open source hardware and open source PIC software.I have a good electronic circuit,really part of a circuit.But...
