Another one of my bookshelves bit the dust from carrying two many out of date linux books. I moved most of the books to a bookshelf I had rebuilt. With another good bookshelf. I added one of the shelves from the fallen unit to add some of the mementos I have collected over the years. With a little rearranging and I seem to have more room than before. Weird. Thinking of what to do with what is left of the other bookshelf and maybe making a workbench for the garage. We have one out there from the...

Microsoft no longer sells software as their primary business!

Posted 10-14-2010 at 02:46 PM by rich_c

Updated 10-13-2010 at 04:43 PM by 55020 (Doh! Right at the end, should be 'find $LFS...')

Almost done with my parallel port controlled directional antenna for the mythbox.

printer port > uln2803 > 5 wire stepper motor (from old 5 1/4 inch floppy drive) with freebasic to control it.

www.antennaweb.org can get the details for what direction to point the antenna.
