More to the point, it is going home Tuesday, the weekend starts today. Looking forward to the 3 weeks off.
Looking at the forecast, Thursday and Friday looks like good days for going skiing. Ordered a chest harness for my GoPro so have to take that for a spin.
Tomorrows forecast looks like heavy snow on the hills although extremely windy, so that will be a stay at home day. Mind you it is a bit blowy this morning, but that is more to do with lasts nights chili!
Waiting for a ski-rack coming for the merc, and maybe then go skiing at the weekend with the wife and kids, and take there own things for a change and save waiting to hire gear.
Also, start having a play with the Raspberry Pi Eve board that arrived the day before I came offshore. This is the one from kickstarter that has the various wireless/radio transmitters on it. First project will be to try and talk to my wireless radiator thermostats. Will have to see if the company will release their protocol data.
Also plan on having another play with the Raspberry Pi gertboard, and get that article finished, and hopefully see where I can also take UltraDynamo next...
Before I know it, it will be time to come back to work.
I'm learning to make iOS apps, and in Xcode (read: Visual Studio for Macs) I expanded "Frameworks" (read: References) and Xcode crashed. I suppose I've seen strange crashes in Visual Studio, but that's usually when I'm working with something fancy. For this, I was just creating a simple app with 3 buttons and 3 labels. Wasn't even running. Pretty sad.
Holy crap! That must be targeted at the "incredibly rich and gullible" market. There's no such thing as a phone worth that much, but there's no shortage of people too stupid or vain to recognize that fact.
Same here. I dual boot Ubuntu 12.10 / Windows 7 on a Lenovo T60p - give Unity a test run but didn't take long to switch to Gnome 3 Unity-free, but then only for a short time: now I run KDE on that Linux install and it has become my mainstay desktop environment
Some of those guys on that board astound me. They want to make absolutely certain that no human on earth ever asks them to be part of any project or any work that is destined to go somewhere in the market or in technical terms. I cannot understand such behavior.
Does anyone have any suggestions for an alternative? Only has to cover free to air for me as I'm a tight-wad and a Murdoch free zone.
