My little PXE experiment?

Posted 11-24-2012 at 03:28 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

My wife recently started having odd issues with her main gaming rig rebooting during intensive pvp fights, so she asked me to look into diagnostics programs so we can see what the issue is. (After discussing the issue with a friend, my wife determined that it was her power supply, and we've ordered one).

Unfortunately, the bug to setup a PXE environment, loaded with diagnostics, utilities, antivirus, etc... had been planted, and I couldn't let the idea go. I've never set one up,...

Android OCR notes

Posted 11-22-2012 at 03:28 PM by NullTerminator
Updated 11-22-2012 at 06:35 PM by NullTerminator

Looking into writing an android app that can scan some simple test and process it. Some solutions require installation of the android ndk in addition to the sdk. The native development kit (ndk) allows you to compile languages like C++ into a native .so library.

The ndk is required to get a shared library build for the Tesseract OCR engine. ref: tesseract ocr project at You may be able to find prebuilt binaries if lucky. You'll need the GCC compiler and cygwin to...

Wacom tablet and the "keepshape" option, on openbox

Dance with the Devil: UEFI: Getting MS to sign our Pre-bootloader
