Upgraded my private "Cloud" (aka web) server. It's faster now, but one or two apps did not make it. Was going to replace them anyway with newer versions. My own home automation software that is web controlled still works fine.

Tinkering.

Posted 09-24-2010 at 06:53 PM by peonuser

Took some poached fish I had and added some vegetables to make fish soup. Then made home made tortillas to go along with it. My gosh it was good.

Decided to use my portable drill for other things. Pulled the motor and set it aside.

The rom drives in the computer my brother gave me are bad. No problem I can tear them apart for parts.

Realised I had almost enough old dead hd's to have enough magnets for a wind generator.

Need to finish...

Took the machine my brother gave me and let it be my desktop. The old desktop was an old p4 that I bought a limping mb for 2 bucks. Probably back it up and wipe the drive. Maybe turn it into a game machine.

Found the chips I needed to test my robotics stuff. Worked!

Several proof of concept items:

1. Built tele-prompter add-on for my computer for about 10 dollars. Used a bash script to control text flow. Works.

2. Turned an old dell gx1 (p2) ubuntu...

robotics stuff

Posted 07-28-2010 at 02:35 AM by peonuser

Built code in freebasic to control stepper motors from the parallel port. Robotics are addictive,

Built a test circuit to mess with stepper motors, but I had a wrong chip. See If I can locate one tomorrow.

My brother gave me a used bare bones computer. Have not decided what to do with it yet. Need to test it to see if it even works.

I love linux.
