Very short Friday Post. I’ve been on vacation since Christmas. My promotion goes into effect next week, and I start my graduate program the following week. I am enjoying this vacation because it is probably going to be the last free time I get until the next semester.
Now to sleep until Sunday 🙂
Happy New Year everyone. Here is to a happy and a healthy 2013!
I learned this little trick at FamiLAB (Orlando’s hacker space). I have a really nice monitor that I bought second hand. It’s only issue is that it doesn’t have a stand. Easy $5 solution is to use a C Clamp at the base of the monitor.
I am off work until the New Year!! I think I’m going to sleep until Sunday 🙂
First things first. Happy Holidays and an early Happy New Year to all my readers. All of you have been awesome. Thank you for all the comments.
I have used up over 100GB of bandwidth in a week. That’s AWESOME. I have never used so much bandwidth ever, yet alone in a week. Luckily I have generous bandwidth allotments between my two hosts, so hopefully I won’t have to scramble for mirrors again.
Expect PiMAME updates over the weekend. I am doing a lot to it. The next update should be great.
We had a secret santa in my department, and my co-worker was given a really cool light box since he is a freelance photographer. He did a little photo shoot of my DeskCade units.
This is a fully configured Raspberry Pi image that auto boots into AdvanceMENU and runs your MAME games for you. It includes a copy of a Free MAME ROM so you can see it working right from the start. SSH is already enabled, memory split is setup, and everything is updated.
Once you have it flashed to your SD Card, I recommend running “sudo raspi-config” and expanding the file system, otherwise you will only have a few megs of space left to use.
Please let me know if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions!
For the past week I’ve been getting hit by HORRIBLE blog spam. If anyone needs to know where to buy fake rolex watches and purses, I have about 400 comments in my spam folder that I can send you.
I used a simple math captcha, which had worked for almost 6 months, but it seems they got past that. I’ve activated Akismet for now. If you comment on any of my posts and they do not appear after a couple days, please email me or message me on Twitter or Facebook or send up smoke signals. I’m not intentionally ignoring anyone!
