I am running out of titles for these pseudo-monthly updates!
Here’s what I’ve been up to since the last post:
Attended the Amazon AWS Summit 2011 and listened to a few interesting talks.
Took a week off to attend a wedding in Ankara, ate some good food and was greeted by this lovely weather upon landing back in Stansted.
Had a great OSHUG session down here at Canterbury. Thanks once again to the speakers and everyone else who attended the event!
Got an old ethernet camera working with C#. It was a fun task so I’ll write up the details in a few days.
Found this awesome transputer board while digging through old lab stock!
Added a small fan (scavenged from a GPU cooler) on my Virtex5 board. It gets quite toasty without that heatsink.
Hacked my bifferboard and added a UART ‘port’, which is a re-purposed 3.5mm stereo jack.
Had great time at another hacknight at Ed’s place. I ended up writing a PHP client for the Hackathon Gunther Daemon.
July is going to be a fun month of travelling, hacks and loads of PhD work. Until next time, cheerio!
