There's reports that the patch submitter isn't actually employed by FTDI. I just woke up, in the middle of the night, at 5am, because I feel asleep on my bed with my clothes on, from being too tired,...
A chip manufacturer tried to get malware merged into the kernel, gregkh laughed them off the mailing list.
If I wasn't so damn heterosexual, I'd hit on greg.
FTDI released a driver update for their chips through Windows Update, where the new driver tries to detect if the chip is counterfeit, and then it bricks the chip by setting USB PID to 0000 if it is...
Doesn't matter, I'll now forever remember how stupid FTDI is.
A multimeter would do the job, and it's trivially reusable, but LEDs are more fun.
Also, aaah weekend.
Might actually get something done now.
I've had a thought in my head, but I haven't been able to put it into words until now.
LEDs and lamps are the best educational tools in electronics, because most of us have 2 fairly decent photon...
Bought some RGB LED strip.
... Not entirely sure what to do with it. I could wrap it around my PC and make a horrible monster.
Bloody eBay impulse buys.
Been getting used to using oscilloscopes this week at school.
Stuff's pretty sweet.
Only problem is that my workspace now has an analog scope, a digital scope, a function generator, a...
Nope, it's Steam games, some backups, and a metric fuckton of Ghost In The Shell.
Aah, feels good to have some space again.
I don't see the connection between a person's ability to teach, and the person's ability to not make slightly stupid choices that aren't life-threatening.
I recall Telegram having cryptographic problems.
TextSecure is the best choice, I've been using it for a long time now.
I have like, a couple 32-bit packages installed on my Linux laptop, my installation is 99% 64-bit.
As usual, the Windows ecosystem is still lagging behind.
Twitch.tv now accepts Dogecoin for subscription payments.
"Joke coin" my ass.
Now you need to get progressive springs for the clutch and brake, all the springs in the G27 are linear, so it sucks to try and drive properly.
I use zsh, because of the autocomplete and how much you can modify it.
8GB of RAM required for Sharepoint, sounds about right.
My current theory is that Snowden leaked the NSA docs not because of morality, but because he wanted to get away from being a Sharepoint admin.
I think it's fair to say that the way Backblaze treats their hard drives, is highly unusual.
It does have some benefits though. Consumer drives are cheap, and last a minimum of 2-4 years, at which...
They killed Metro Firefox because it had less than 10 active users.
I use Firefox on my Windows desktop, Debian laptop, and Nexus 7 2013.
Brilliant browser on all platforms.
I'd consider doing that, but they only support 1/3 of the platforms I use, and they don't have source code available.
What's up with the 10 meter figure? Korean news is saying it's 20 meters.
You can see that the supports for the grate just gave up, they were never designed to...
The g++ package in Debian is 4 times larger than the gcc package.
C++ is so fat, even the compiler's the size of a whale.
Ooooooh man, this is going to get a cease and desist letter faster than light.
I want it so much though.
I'll kill you all if SAO happens for real, though, and I get stuck inside.
YOU CAN'T SERVE A PREBUILT MACHINE TO THE CUSTOMERS YOU DONKEY
IT DOESN'T EVEN HAVE A GPU
SMART claims that the drive is fine right now.
Lying little bastard. The noise that the reader arm makes when it moves has been getting louder and louder slowly.
I had a BSOD with an NTFS error an hour or two back.
Just ordered a new hard drive. Slightly surprised at how long this age-old Seagate Barracuda has survived.
I think it's a bit over 6 years...
My water-clear RGB LEDs arrived.
Gave the green 4mA and started seeing spots in under a second.
Went to 2mA, started seeing spots in under a second.
Went to 0.3mA, started seeing spots in about a...
I'd go for a super-beefy APU with really fast RAM, and then throw a proper GPU (R9 270X or R9 280) in later on.
Blizzard released the prepatch for the next expansion like, yesterday or something, apparently.
They've completely redefined "broken on release". Pretty much everything important is broken.
AMD replaces their shitty CEO with a hugely successful engineer, with a credentials list longer than the distance between my upper and lower teeth after my jaw dropped to the floor because of seeing...
I killed a btrfs volume by running an RC kernel that had a bug in it.
Never had problems with non-RC releases though.
Windows 8 doesn't support ReFS, so I can't access my D: drive. Need to update to 8.1 before I can access those files again. Well, at least now I know that.
I should overclock.
Also, I really should reinstall Windows. This install is dead as fuck. The fact that my system drive is throwing SMART errors about sector...
If you set GRUB's timer to 0 seconds, you can still access GRUB by holding down shift.
I'd do that. Or get a new mother.
Someone made a really gorgeous HTML5 speedtest thing, with graphs and stuff.
WiFi is still magic in 2014, all you can really do is sacrifice a goat and hope it works out.
Microsoft had a hand in that law being made.
Also, this is just one of the many good reasons why governments should never touch proprietary shit, under any circumstance.
After I posted, before I closed the case, I reversed the fans.
Didn't think about it when mounting them, but it was trivial to change them.
Took a second look at the functional datasheet for my socket.
Pretty sure those are the pins I lost.
Everything seems to be working fine without them. Lucky.
Max speed on my new fans is 2500RPM.
Works well for drying hands, if they're wet.
So, I installed the watercooling in my machine.
I fucked up with the socket lock, so I lost 2 pins on my CPU, but it appears to be working, going to stress it in a bit, after I remember the name of...
I now have my watercooler.
Too bad I'm too tired to install it after a 10-hour day. Oh well, there's always Friday and the weekend.
I really skimmed the article there, didn't I.
In my defense, I was actually trying to get an RGB LED working whilst reading.
Just spent an hour debugging my newly-made PCB because I forgot to plug in a cable.
Proper project documentation might be worth doing in the future...
Now to test RGB LED and segment display.
Segment display is so going to have to wait until tomorrow, too tired to think about the shift register...
What we really need to do is throw John Carmack into a cage, stick a computer in there, and throw in the latest GPUs as they come out on the market.
We'd probably have real-time raytracing in under...
If blue LEDs were just invented... How does the blue in my RGB LED happen?
I just read up on it.
I was using 80-wire ATA, some of the cables are connected to a ground pin, which was causing my problems.
40-wire IDE should be fine.
Too bad I haven't seen one of those...
