ARM experiments awaiting

Posted 03-24-2015 at 03:40 PM by onebuck

Hi,

I have purchased a ODROID-C1 ARM SoC to experiment within my LAB. What I have purchased to date;
Code:
ODROID-C1 
HDMI Cable (Micro, Type D) 
5V/2A Power Supply  
16GB MicroSD UHS-1 C1 Linux (Pink Dot)
Chroma C1 Servo Board 
Heat Sink 
C1 Tinkering Kit
C1 3.2 inch Touchscreen Display Shield
Nice little board with loads of peripheral devices available to expand. I have several Raspberry Pi boards but the C1 is a better ARM device with more cores...

Spring is near!

Posted 03-08-2015 at 11:24 AM by onebuck

Hi,

Two weeks from today and it's officially spring!

In like lion and out like a lamb. So it seems we are going out as a lamb. Chance of the sixties next week. Starting to thaw here, mucky mess everywhere. On the farm this time of year was a lot of work getting fences mended and husbandry for the animals was a must in the spring. Shots for the horses along with worming. Hopefully the hay stack was high enough for the next 8 weeks. Since first cut wasn't until mid May....

Fun in the Sun

Posted 03-02-2015 at 09:49 AM by onebuck

Hi,

I've been away from LQ for a while!
Just got back from a beautiful vacation in Florida for the last five weeks to rejuvenate and recover from the cold here in the mid-west. We had to cut things short because of the pending ice storms & snow falls that were forecast. Driving in freezing rain & snow is not fun. We missed the storms and got home safely to a cold and snow covered trip. Road crews cleared a great path for us and mother nature accommodated us.

I used a ASR33 for programming I/O but that got old fast so I built a paper tape reader for the board. I created my programs using the paper tape punch

Old time Winter, at least that's what the weather analyst call it.

Hi,

We just got a 6 inch snowfall and things are bitterly cold therefore very dangerous for everyone. I now live in a small town and do not have to worry about clearing a long lane or access to my barn. That task(s) were a killer in itself.

Just paid a guy to clean my short driveway. Worth every dime to keep from having another heart attack.

I am going south for a while to warm these bones up and get some golf in. With low gas prices the trip will be cheaper...
