it was very silent on my blog during the last year, but today I would like to share some insight on how to compile gridlab-d on a Linux x64 platform. This software can be used to simulate the power flow in a power grid and I had to deal with it during some projects I currently work on. Continue reading
today I wanna share my first experiences with my new gadget, a STM32 Nucleo-F401RE (www.st.com/stm32nucleo). I got mine when I visited Embedded World exhibition in Nürnberg this year, but you can order one online for about 10€, e.g. from http://www.watterott.com/de/NUCLEO-F401RE
In this post I share how I got started and how to get a first “Hello World” program running.

today I would like to share with you some python knowledge. I am fiddeling around with python and xml to generate HTTP Post messages. In this blog entry I describe in a brief way how you can create a xml structure and pretty print it.
I am currently working on some reverse engineering of wireless protocols of home automation systems, and sooner or later you encounter the point where you need some kind of protocol analyzer to understand what the devices are exchanging in their communication. More infos on that will follow some time later, but now I would like to share a short advice/fix for a tool I found. It is called “Protocol Analyzer” and right, it can be used to understand the signals the devices are exchanging.
today I would like to share some interesting facts about Android on a Acer Iconia Tab W500P. I happen to have access to such a Tab today. On this Tab there is Windows 7 installed by default. Hmm, and Windows 7 is not a operation system optimized for touch input, in my opinion.
So I did a little research on how to get Android running on this tab. Continue reading
during the last two day I spent my leisure time to set up the current Ubuntu 12.10 on my laptop. I used Ubuntu 10.04 LTS for quite a long time, but now I backed up all my files and installed the latest version. I liked Ubuntu 10.04 a lot, the Gnome 2 Desktop was very handy and the nice graphic features were awesome. I had the 3D cube to manage my four workspaces and the wobbly window effect, so basically the nice things you can easily set up and use with Compiz.
The latest version of Ubuntu comes along with desktop manager Unity, which I don’t like very much. All the known features are gone and it is more clumsy to handle.
Here I would like to write about what I did to get the Gnome 2 feeling I am used to from Ubuntu 10.04 back to Ubuntu 12.10.
today I would like to share some fun stuff I did with my RaspberryPI. Two things I had in mind:
- I wanna have my RPi WiFi
- I would like to run aircrack-ng on it.
