❝ getting things done takes time
Did a quick write-up today for a new page, now/.
The idea inspired by Derek Sivers, is pretty simple. Create a path on your website describing what you are working on at the moment.
Now, in detail
I often tweet song lyrics or read short quotes on twitter. So I decided to build a tool to do just this using existing text.
- Hack and testing phase of secret project to unleash the power of the written word
- Text processing algorythm for line adjustment and length
- hook-up to existing twit code
- cron for update timing
Hardware should get simpler and cheaper right? After what seems a lifetime of upgrading hardware and supporting software systems, I have switched my work servers to RaspberryPi. I have now a collection of the servers running. I do however want to kill the laptop I use and replace it with a purpose built, expandable RPi laptop. Early days yet, but I can see how this will be better than a Windows or Mac laptop. Need to update to the latest processor? Do it for $50 dollars.
There are many ways to approach this and I am not sure if a wood verses 3D printer approach is better. One thing I have been thinking about is supporting multiple processors (ie: two or three RaspberryPi boards) in one case.
- Design stage of my RasperryPi laptop
- Physical case design
- Power supply — PowerBoost 1000 Charger - Rechargeable 5V Lipo USB Boost @ 1A - 1000C
- display 800x480 TFT HDMI touchscreen
My online stuff needs a home on the Internet. Having been on the Internet since 1994 I have blogged and commented at places like slashdot, perlmonks, Hackernews, twitter, flickr, etc. Having looked at a lot of the tools I decided to create my own.
- NGE or Next Generation Engine
- Re-factoring my simple static blogging tool
- integrating with python based Flickr upload tool
- Moving towards this years PT goal, 2000 kilometers.
- Guitar practice
What am I looking at?
E • ch • id • na — an egg laying mammal or monotreme. The most interesting thing was the way this echidna walks. Legs on one side, both move in unison.
