  • Jailbreak an iPhone 2G in Linux with Spirit
    on Feb 7, 2011 in tech iphone
       I got my hands on an old original iPhone and wanted to jailbreak it to play around with Cydia. At some point I'd also like to try using Haxe to write apps for it, just to see if I can get my "Hello World" game running on iOS. I decided to look a...
  • J2ME MIDP2 Example Game with Sample Code
    on Jan 30, 2011 in java games tech
       My cousin recently got a decent feature-phone with a full qwerty keyboard. It's not a smartphone but it can run J2ME apps and since my Blackberry can as well, I decided to try and port my simplest example game to a Java midlet. The game isn't mu...
  • Playing Through My "Pile of Shame"
    on Jan 25, 2011 in games
       I've spent way too much over the past year on games, thanks to Steam sales and things like the Humble Indie Bundle. It's hard to make an argument that I'm somehow saving money when I'm spending more than I would have had the sale not enticed me...
  • Masters of Doom Mini Review
    on Jan 20, 2011 in games books
       I finished reading Consider Phlebas on my Kindle 3 and then went straight for Masters of Doom, another book that's been on my not-yet-read list for way too long. While all the reading and traveling I've been doing lately is keeping me from my ot...
  • Kindle 3 Tips
    on Jan 8, 2011 in tech books
       My sister bought me a Kindle 3 with 3G just after I had donated my library to charity during the holidays, and I've been using it every day since. It's a great device for reading books on. I'm already half-way through Iain M. Banks first book in...
  • Electronics Parts for Free: Harvesting and Free Samples
    on Dec 22, 2010 in electronics launchpad tech
       The main reason I chose the TI Launchpad as my entry point into electronics and microcontrollers is that it's darn cheap. At $4.30 for the board and two chips it beats out everything else I know of in the hobbyist market, and I was able to use t...
  • Selling Books on Amazon to Clear Clutter
    on Dec 14, 2010 in books
       I spent the last several days trying to help clean up the house, which included getting the carpets steam-cleaned by a professional, rearranging the furniture in the living room, and clearing out a lot of old books that were in storage. Getting...
  • TI Launchpad LED Chaser aka an MSP430 Cylon!
    on Dec 8, 2010 in electronics launchpad tech
       I soldered a row of red LEDs to a small piece of perfboard and hooked them up to an msp430 microcontroller that had been flashed using mspdebug with code I compiled with mspgcc4. TI doesn't yet have a stable release of their CodeComposer softwar...
  • Microstock Photography
    on Dec 7, 2010 in photography
       I've been reading about microstock photography, trying to see if I could make a little money off my photography hobby. Looks like it's something that will take me a lot of time and effort for little return, but trying it out should help me impro...
  • Moving my MSP430 project off the TI Launchpad onto a Breadboard
    on Dec 2, 2010 in electronics launchpad tech
       I made a simple error when moving my msp430 microcontroller onto a breadboard: I didn't tie the reset pin to Vcc!  I couldn't figure out why my project (for now a simple blinking LED) wasn't working, but a quick search showed the answer on the...
