  • Systemd Continued Commanding Linux Systems In 2015

    This year Ubuntu switched over to using systemd in place of Upstart, other distributions have also decided to take advantage of systemd, this project hosted its first conference, and the systemd feature-set continued to expand.

    Systemd in 2015 gained its own UEFI boot-loader, picked up more networking features, added fsck support, came up with its own su-like command, added more feature integration with Btrfs, and many other features came about while others were refined.

  • Sonic Pi packaged for Fedora

    Maybe you know about Sonic Pi, the system to learn programming playing with music. Now I want to give it a try in my system (Fedora 23) and my sysadmin-TOC syndrome obligues me first to package it into RPM. Now I have good and bad news. The good news are I have a testing release of Sonic Pi for Fedora 23. It includes a desktop file too. The bad news are... it doesn't work yet. Sonic Pi uses jackd while a common Fedora Workstation uses pulseaudio and both try to manage the sound device by themselves.

Open Hardware With Arduino: Counter and MKR ZERO

  • Keep track of your laps in the pool with this Arduino counter

    PeterQuinn925 swims for exercise, and to train for the occasional triathlon, but when doing so he often zones out and forgets how many laps he has swam. To solve this problem without spending a lot of money on a commercial solution, he created his own counter using an Arduino Nano and an ultrasonic sensor. The sensor detects when a swimmer approaches, and the system calculates distance based on this, assuming that a lap is roughly 50 yards or meters. This info is announced audibly via a speaker/amplifier using an Arduino speech library and is shown on a 7-segment display.

  • Recreating Rosie the Robot with a MKR ZERO

    While 2020 may seem like a very futuristic year, we still don’t have robotic maids like the Jetsons’ Rosie the Robot. For his latest element14 Presents project, DJ Harrigan decided to create such a bot as a sort of animatronic character, using an ESP8266 board for interface and overall control, and a MKR ZERO to play stored audio effects. The device features a moveable head, arms and eyes, and even has a very clever single-servo gear setup to open and close its mouth.
