Xmas tree lights.

Posted 11-25-2010 at 09:10 PM by peonuser

Well I grabbed some 2n3904 transistors to act as solid state switches and now have the computer controlled xmas tree (battery powered) lights up and running. Still have to tweak the circuit and the code a bit though. The basic circuit before adapting it. Planning to use the parallel breakout cable to connect things to the pc. http://www.instructables.com/id/No-s...ort-break-out/. Good place for code and interfacing: http://www.epanorama.net/circuits/parallel_output.html

People that complain about KDE4

Posted 11-24-2010 at 01:10 PM by lumak (Lumak's Guide to Random Things)

I guess I'm going to tell you my start with Linux and how I got here.

Well, it all started back in 2006. My step-dad brought home a laptop for me that someone had given him for me. It was a Toshiba something, and it had a Pentium 3 processor (833mhz) and about 256mb of RAM. By default, it still had Windows 2000 on it, while the desktop I had at the time had Windows XP. My friend had given me a SLaX Live CD, and I decided to give it a go. I really liked the way that it looked...

All Hail RMS!

Posted 11-24-2010 at 02:07 AM by Kenny_Strawn (Kenny the one-teen comittee to stamp out Proprietary $uckware)

All Hail Richard Stallman! He's the one who created the concept of Free Software/Open Source and therefore should be the role model for all of us. He already is one of my role models (even more so than Mark Shuttleworth, who comes in second).

I also am strongly for the "copyleft" philosophy (although I would also like to extend it towards "patent-left") -- just like him. It is what brought Linux to what it is today -- and I greatly admire that.
