    It was great to be around coders. Some more internet bandwidth may be needed.

    Quick question: Windows 8 Tablet or Mac Pro? Depending on the manufacturer, a W8T could have an Intel i-series processor (64-bit? which I'm interested in) or an ARM processor. Not to mention the advantages of USB, micro SD, and a few more hackable goodies. OTOH, there's the Mac which no matter where I go, one of these $2000 fashionistas is just about everywhere stirring my emotions into a conflict between my love of Linux or the trendy monolith that looks like it does everything. I guess I'm more interested in compiling software from source and not being told something can't be compiled because of some setting I hadn't planned on using is not enabled.

      Personally, I like being the frugal nerd that I am. If I can create a computer from a hodgepodge of components for a fraction of the cost of buying a whole machine, maybe I should be content with a humble collaboration where things can be pieced together by the part. We do this with desktop computers already. Projects like the Phoneblocks project are also a good example of piecemeal computing. I think people have been conditioned to expect what they want in a single package rather than to buy things separately or to build things themselves with the parts available to them. Add to that the myth of "Buying the parts separately is more expensive". Eliminate factors like shipping costs (especially if you buy from Amazon Prime, DX, or AliExpress) and you'll find it's still a worthy effort to buy by-the-part.

    GNURadio kinda works, but gqrx doesn't on my Odroid. So I'm going to table the project for a while. rtl_fm works, though it only seems good enough to pick up regular FM stations like KSHE. I sure would like to know how to hack it a little better to get the HD Radio side channels and the RDS text data. At any rate, I guess I should still work on my nqrx project (ncurses gqrx) and learn how to make programs with ncurses.

    Had a great time trying out the time-lapse trick on the Raspberry Pi! Check it out: http://youtu.be/QjGnRFX7lYk

    Anyone still going strong there?

    Someone got my external CD drive cord and left me their power cord at the event. Can we swap back?

    Also, the #healstl team needs to regroup. If you are part of the trello board for the project, check the board. Let's regroup tonight, guys!

    I'm going to need some help from a few hardware hackers tonight to help me work out a few bugs on my Odroid U3. Apparently now there is a high pitched whining noise coming out of my lapdock speakers where there wasn't before I installed pulseaudio. The web is in conflict as to where it is pulseaudio or ALSA making the noise. To think, the guys in the Odroid IRC room said that the boot.scr file I wouldn't allow for sound. Well, something happened and now it does.

    In case anyone is interested: I'm planning to work on accessing and playing with my data from various tracker API's, such as fitbit, Automatic­, Withings BP monitor, and askmeevery.

    I'll probably get there around 6 or 6:30PM, and work till 10PM or so.

    Compiling Qt from source. Hour 6. The things I do to make GNURadio to work! I'm also going to have to recompile Wireshark later. That was compiled from source. You learn a lot by doing things the hard way! #CODEHARD

      Finally! Qt is done!

    Are there any F# gurus out there? I need help to convert from Python/Numpy to F#/Accord.NET

    September 20, 2014

    • Paul B.

      I have a friend in Nashville who's an F# guru if you don't find anyone local. She was just here for StrangeLoop.

      Hi Paul. Thanks. Could you put me in touch with her? My email is [masked]. Regards, Steph

    Out of curiosity, anyone want to stay up until dawn then catch the first buses and trains to Uncle Bill's Pancake House afterwords? The restaurant is cash only, but it's probably the only place I can think of in the city that's open at 5 AM that sells breakfast. It's at Kingshighway and Potomac.

    Is codecause going to be doing anything this week?

    September 22, 2014

    • Jason C.

      I hope so. Assuming we're still talking about #HealSTL. The project has some strange database demands IMHO.

    I am extremely busy this week with other activities so I probably won't attend but I will continue to use Codecademy to practice my skills.

    Anyone know how to fix the display resolution on an ODroid U3 to display 1280x720 and still have sound? I feel a bit burned because I was told this computer would be better but didn't bother to tell me of the "Bad HDMI block the Exynos has". No body wrote that on the page for the computer. I was hoping to do some RTL-SDR but I can't seem to not make other people mad in the process!

    Would love to join in, but can't do it this time. Maybe next time...!
