Thank You.

Filed under

I just wanted to take this time to thank everyone who has visited my site since the upgrade, especially those who have registered. It was something I had thought about for a while, and finally bit the bullet. I really like the drupal look & feel and am starting to get used to way it works. I'm finding that I'm still kinda feeling around in the dark looking for some direction or focus for the site. I really didn't aim to be another linux news site. I'm sure I will find my niche in time.

To that end, you the visitor/user can help. With registration one can post blogs, make pages and post news or items of interest. One can even upload pictures or screenshots to the gallery (my apologizes for requiring seperate registration - the integration module is broken at this time). Anonymous users can post comments in any of the areas. So, with your help, we can make this the kind of site you'd like to visit.

A special thanks goes out to Texstar, whose help and support has made the kickoff of what I consider a success. I want to especially thank him for kindly, if not reluctantly, agreeing to the interview that has reaped my site it's most popular story so far and for posting other items of interest.

So, thanks one and all for visiting and please come back anytime. Feel free to contact me privately if you wish using the Contact Me link under Older Content on the left if you have any thoughts or suggestions, to report broken links, or anything you'd rather not post about in public.

Thank You all and [your diety] Bless,

Open Hardware: XON/XOFF and Raspberry Pi Pico

  • From XON/XOFF to Forward Incremental Search

    In the olden days of computing, software flow control with control codes XON and XOFF was a necessary feature that dumb terminals needed to support. When a terminal received more data than it could display, there needed to be a way for the terminal to tell the remote host to pause sending more data. The control code 19 was chosen for this. The control code 17 was chosen to tell the remote host to resume transmission of data.

  • Raspberry Pi Pico Used in Plug and Play System Monitor | Tom's Hardware

    Dmytro Panin is at it again, creating a teeny system monitor for his MacBook from scratch with help from our favorite microcontroller, the Raspberry Pi Pico. This plug-and-play system monitor (opens in new tab) lets him keep a close eye on resource usage without having to close any windows or launch any third-party programs. The device is Pico-powered and plugs right into the MacBook to function. It has a display screen that showcases a custom GUI featuring four bar graphs that update in real-time to show the performance of different components, including the CPU, GPU, memory, and SSD usage. It makes it possible to see how hard your PC is running at a glance.
