I bought a Messenger Kit today. It's a really cool accessory. I like its shape but dislike its connector.
As you see such a monopolized freak again. Neither pure functionality for 2.5mm headset connector nor power connector purpose. Anyway...I just like this small and nice keyboard. For some reasons, I tried to find any software related to this Xbox, then yes. There's one great site called Xbox-Linux. The Xbox Linux Project aims to provide a version of GNU/Linux for the Xbox, so that it can be used as an ordinary computer. Linux should make use of all Xbox hardware and allow the user to install and run software from standard i386 Linux distributions.
Xbox, is registered trademarks by Microsoft Corp.
As title shown, what the hell is going? Why one group growing up aims to vow to stop software patents as petition which can be proposed around in Europe? And why not in Asia and America? Does this question is fantastic talk or unreality? Watching the link of title, you will get all the answers. But I have a question? Why does this world need close and open groups together? They cant face each side as well. Why? For better benefit? or really for good innovation created better? ACTUALLY I DON'T KNOW. Like my east3yrswest3yrs, I only want to say that east equals west, on the contrary; west still equals east. If you desire to have that benefit. As they have belonged to or monopolized by someones already, or you would just not have proposed expectably something to against.
These days I am little bit pissing myself off to learn KiCad that loving it but hardly to me on linux side. In order to overcome my poor linux skill, i must use my linux laptop everyday. Not only basic also electronic engineering requirements. We are using a two circle rings as button function in KiCad, but there still have some problems. I'd like to fix it but i cant at this moment from ability. So only need spend more time on KiCad field. The followings are just posted on Qi wiki first.
Comparisons between RC1 and RC2
S50 key btn on RC1 board
avt2 RC1 S50 key
The following pictures are gerbers in different stacking layers
Comparisons on avt2 RC1 and RC2
avt2 RC1 S50 Copper/Text
avt2 RC2 S50 Copper/Text
avt2 RC1 S50 Copper/Mask
avt2 RC2 S50 Copper/Mask

avt2 RC2 S50 Copper/Mask/Solder
avt2 RC1 S50 Copper/Drill
avt2 RC2 S50 Copper/Drill
The rc2 mask and solder layer are not circle as same as rc1, if this is the KiCad's limit, then we need to think other way to solve this. Since the metal domn must not contact with copper well when user push buttons due to contact area is too small.
The copper layer (GND) is connected to S50's outside ring (short condition).
The above is the problems now I meet, hope they can be fixed later.
Before doing install, remember to uninstall previous KiCad version firstly.
sudo apt-get remove kicad
This is posted that I wanted to upgrade my linux 9.04 to 9.10. Then install new version of KiCad 2009-02-16 version. And Xiangfu he knows more Linux knowledge than me, so I asked him to help me that how i can do this. Thanks for Xiangfu's post.
Taipei 101, where I went to its observatory to walk around. For me, even living in Taipei for couple years. Still not frequently come to here. Today I was fretting my heart where I should go on my happy Sunday. So just went to eastern division of Taipei city. Actually there's no target this time...just walked around then ....came to Taipei 101. No doubt. Went insdie there to see what else I can see today...I like its 4F.
Especially the facility of PageOne which is a nice bookstore with all kinds of books in english. I've never seen bookstore like this best before in Taiwan. It's different style from Elite. And next time I should let myself hungry more and eat great food at 4F here. I found actually they are not expensive as I thought before. But remember that making a reservation before coming here. The most let me felt interested was the Super Big Wind Damper.
After read this article, I am proud of being a Taiwanese. As they said that "My goal has been to make Taiwan a country respected by the international community," said Ma in his Jan. 20 remarks. "We don't want to be accused of using 'dollar diplomacy.'"
hihi, i am viewing that an open schematic from here. So I sent a feedback on their schematics. Those pages have viewed about Audio/Ethernet/Misc./IR pages of its schematics. If you are a designer who wants to learn more on XC6SLX45 Spartan-6 FPGA, this site is designed and hosted by a French guy. May help you a lot of info on fpga techs. Also you can check here I contributed for more details.
In order to meet SMT vendor side about AI machine. During build module must let module attributes to be Normal+Insert. This indicates that the module must appear in the automatic insertion file (for automatic insertion machines). This attribute is most useful for surface mount components (SMDs). So every module must set this attribute.
I received mails in Chinese, so tried to translate in English here. I like their idea about expressing Taiwan. Anyone would like to have more info, please directly go Youtube for contacting the author.
Today I tried to know that how to create a drill file in PCBnew of Kicad and check pcb by DRC function. Then something encountered I didn't know. So I posted email to list to ask. We'll see the real answers later. jeje...
