Ever since 2012 I have been interested in the Crypto Currency market (Yes Bitcoin fascinated me!) however, as like many of us we thought it was a bit of a pipe dream and did not invest in it.
Have you ever just wanted to get the boys (and girls) out and away from the PS4? well I think I found the solution… My son and I decided to give the whole “mower restoration” thing a go. After a bit of searching I decided upon the ever popular Scott Bonnar/Rover Model 45.
After playing with NFC and RFID a bit in the last year I realised that the technology is really hamstrung to only a few use cases. Primarily Entry systems and payment systems. No one has really used the technology for much more. Maybe some active tracking solutions, but really the use cases for NFC are pretty scarce.
We moved into a brand new home about 3 months ago. Most people would have checked out the comms infrastructure in the area prior to buying. Silly me however assumed that being only 20km from the center of Perth city we would be able to achieve decent DSL speeds.
Just recently I managed to find some time to head down to my mates place in Fingal, NSW. To most Fingal seems like a bit of a trek, but what I have noticed recently is that the Gold Coast has pretty much all merged all the way down the coast and now it just doesn’t seem that far to get to Fingal.
Over the last couple of weeks I have been playing with Adobe Premiere Pro with varying results. The biggest problem I have run into is the preview of a sequence becoming choppy after a few seconds of playback. After reading MULTIPLE forum posts and articles on this matter I still have not found a complete solution.
Last week I was trying to decide upon a hobby both my son and I could do together…Now buying a drone was not one of those “Homer Simpson – Bowling Ball” moments but a decision that would have us get out of the house s little more often.
I dare say that as I play with more and more of these LED matrix panels i’ll come up with multiple ways of mounting them together. If you have more than one panel and you are bench testing then you will know about the struggle of holding these things up whilst testing.
A year or so ago we managed to import a 1200 x 1200 3 axis Chinese built CNC router into Australia. Obviously you get what you pay for, this beast came in at under $7k landed. However the build quality has been pretty good with only minor issues.
Did I mention that we just took possession of our new laser cutter? After a 4 -5 week wait the new Redsail X700 laser from china finally rocked up. And to be honest, first impressions have been pretty good.
The idea behind this was to create an aesthetically pleasing frame for an old screen that I had lying around. No chance was I going to create a standard boring square frame and hang this on the wall.
I have embarked on a journey to create a Raspberry Pi HAT for a little project of mine and I wanted to share a couple of things that I have created which may help you speed up your development time in the future.
