When upgrading my system I discovered that there are some obvious (and not so obvious) changes needed to my original post on order to get networking to work with SIMH and QEMU.
As it turns out is isn’t too difficult to draw graphs using Scaleable Vector Graphics (SVG) and which is really quite neat as newer web browsers allow you to embed SVG markup in an HTML page.
I like python and lighttpd so why not use them together!
Normally I configure the serial port on my Raspberry Pi to be the console port, but occasionally I want to be able to use it myself
Having configured my Pi Zero as a USB serial device I decided to see if I could use it read and write to and from the hosts USB serial port using python.
Since I’m usually carrying a laptop anyway I find the easiest way to connect to a Raspberry Pi is using a USB serial cable and I didn’t think things could get any simpler – till now.
Three different solutions to the same problem illustrating some of the features of Algol 68.
Decided to see if I could come up with a routine in ALGOL68 to decode BASE64 encoded strings, partly because I’d recently had to implement this in Powershell and partly because I just felt like it.
VMware allows you to share folders between the guest and the host which is a very convenient way to move files between the two machines (though this should be avoided if you need any kind of separation between the two).
On the Jetson Nano the l4tbr0 network bridge it is enabled by default, if you want to disable it you can use the following two commands. # systemctl disable nv-l4t-usb-device-mode.service # systemctl stop nv-l4t-usb-device-mode.service Note – Once the service has been disabled you can’t simply re-enable … Continue reading
