Just stuff...

Posted 07-30-2012 at 09:40 PM by peonuser

Found another PDA with a serial connection, but will have to make a special interface cable. We will see how that goes also. Want to use the palm with the arduino as a display. Cheaper than buying a rs232 lcd. Well free is always cheaper. May make a discrete parts rs232tottl adapter.

Made sort of a passive network tap from:

Found that Slackware has a dvd that automatically becomes a pxe server. Can not wait...

Fun with Haskell

Posted 07-28-2012 at 04:11 PM by hydraMax (Bits and Pixels)

Lately I've been having fun getting back into Haskell. I had dropped the language a while ago in favor of more "practical" pursuits, but I see now that was a big mistake. Haskell is such a beautiful and enjoyable way to code.

Recently I made a few little designs and animations based on mathematical formulae. Photos or videos are available for each:

With rumors surfacing about the new digital key requirements in Windows 8 , doors have began to open for Linux. Take for instance Steam. The mobile client for steam comes on two types of systems iphones and droids. What’s missing?

Install VLC in linux

Posted 07-25-2012 at 08:42 AM by Arjun

You'll have to install it once with

apt-get install apt-zip
You'll need to run apt-zip-list once. It produces two files. The command line options below will put the two files on your desktop (replace username with your username. See the man page for a summary of what these options do):

apt-zip-list -p vlc --medium=/home/username/Desktop -s
One of the files it produces will be a script. Run the script; it will download vlc and anything needed...
