Friday Post: Everyone Here Rocks!

Hey All,

What a week.  I’ve been working on a presentation for the University, finally showed it off, got a ton of good jobs and awesome work.  Feels like a weight was lifted.  I don’t know if we will move forward with the idea, but it’s been fun so far.

Next week I will be at PyCon in California.  I went last year and it was amazing, and this year’s talks look great.  I’m excited.

I’ve gotten tons of feedback about PiMAME 0.6b2, and I feel like it’s going in a great direction.  If it wasn’t for all you giving me tons of feedback, this project wouldn’t be even 10% as good.  Thank you.


On an exciting note, a book I have been a technical editor/reviewer on has made it to the printers and is available to buy at Amazon.  It’s called the “Raspberry Pi Networking Cookbook”.  It’s really humbling to have my name in print, and I honestly wouldn’t have been given these opportunities without everyone’s support.  That’s why my part of the dedication is to the community.  Here’s to you!

The FIRST Robotics regional competition in Orlando has been going on this week.  I was a member of Team 108 (Go SigmaC@TS!) back in high school.  FIRST is what really pushed me into the field I’m in now, and it’s always an awesome sight seeing hundreds of students working on robots, getting excited about competition, but most importantly, making friends with others from around the world.  It’s not about winning, it’s about working together.

So wooo!  So glad it’s the weekend.  Time to sleep until Monday!

Friday Post: PiMAME 0.6 Beta

Beta2 is now up!

You guys rock!  I know about the slowness.  Working on a Beta2 right now!

Sorry for the late post, I have been waiting on the new image to upload to my web host.

Hey All!

Today is the 1 year anniversary of the Raspberry Pi’s launch. I’m really proud of the community and environment that has sprung up surrounding this wonderful device.

I am very happy to be releasing a beta for PiMAME 0.6.

Release Notes:

  1. Support for the XArcade Tankstick.
  2. New menu at start to choose options before launching emulation.
  3. PIP (the Pi IP service) is available to install (but off by default).
  4. New admin options in the web frontend to Reboot and Shutdown your Pi.
  5. Smaller image should now install on most 2GB cards (with some room to spare).

I realize this isn’t a monumental release, but it’s a leap forward on the foundation. I have a lot of ideas and a lot of improvements I want to include. As I make these improvements, I’m going to release more and more. You all have been awesome at pointing me in the direction you wish PiMAME to go. Thank you! I’m eager to hear your feedback on this version.
