Caveat emptor

Posted 10-26-2013 at 09:10 AM by peonuser

I am not a Hacker. but I do repair things to my advantage.

Pulled an old PC out of the closet to check it out. Machine came up but magic smoke came out of the PS. pulled the power cord. Looked at the PS and it seemed to have been opened. Should of not been put back in the PC. Replaced PS and machine came up fine again. (PC stands for personal computer a an not just an mswindows computer).

Having fun playing with temperature sensors. Using the lm35 on the arduino and the ds1820 using digitemp on the pc serial port. May try the lm35 on a x86 joystick port. Played with several other sensors on the arduino. Beginning to collect a diverse sets of code. Also use the Arduino with the Nexus 7 (http://www.instructables.com/id/Nexu...d-the-Arduino/)

Wrote a little code in cobol on the nslu2 running debian linux. Thanx to IBM.com com for a little help with an issue.

Went fo sourceforge.net and downloaded some recipe programs. One I really like would just not work. Missing data files from the source package.

Started working on an RPi pc. Soldering special cables. The fun part will be installing an rj-45 female connector on the back of the pc. Have an idea though.

Made sort of a duplicate of a popular ota tv antenna. (http://www.instructables.com/id/Cheap-wall-antenna/)

People spend hours online typing in crafted messages, but you suggest they write a line or two of code for a batch or a shell file and you are treated with contempt.
