Well, I got hooked today. I found a little tech store down the street selling Raspberry Pis. I couldn’t wait to try it. I already had all the parts to hook it up (HDMI cable, USB keyboard and mouse, power). It worked out of the box. Movie playback isn’t that great as I would wish for and so is the sound (mono, on ALSA). I wonder if it’s because I’m using a LED projector instead of a standard monitor / TV. I guess I still need to read on the subject or maybe get myself pre-configured SD images such the one for the RetroPie Project or Raspbmc. Anyways, it’s another great device to my too-big collection of computers / tablets at home. If I haven’t already said it, I also owned a Sheeva plug for over three years now: still running strong streaming the News in Japanese from the NHK. They were all the all rage when I got them. Now, the ecosystem as changed so much in the last years, it’s hard to follow up on everything.
It happens to me once in a while: I type and then …. the Caps Lock button is ernabled; only I don’t see any light indicating it until I toggle to non-caps. Now I’m typing non-caps with the Caps Lock light on … Grrrr!
xdotool key Caps_Lock
The light turns on, and everything is back to normal. \^o^/
Just playing around with GL_LINES and shaders. On a previous post, I got acquainted with glDrawArraysInstanced() but this time, I built a more solid environment around it, with colour, rotation and scaling options for each object. So far, its actually pretty good for prototyping with primitives. Now, I just need a better editor than just write code directly into the source. 🙂
This is my blog. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
