• I was building another one of these, and found some bugs in my previous post. I’ve corrected the post, the biggest being that the kernels in Armbian 5.10 and later include a 1-Wire interface in the DTB which conflicts with the 1PPS pin used by the GPS module. The solution is to either comment out […]

  • Time is important. In modern computing, I would say time is second in importance only to good entropy. Unfortunately, getting accurate, reliable time is getting harder. The global NTP pool is under attack, and worse it’s also being used as an amplification vector for DDOS attacks. Primarily because of those two reasons, I’ve decided to […]

    Oculus Rift: My Thoughts

    I’ve had the Oculus Rift setup and working for a few days now, and had several friends over to get a variety of opinions, and…well…we’re slightly disappointed. Ergonomics This is the one place where there is very little improvement since the DK2 and in some cases it’s backwards. Like me, most of my friends wear […]

    Oculus Rift: Initial Impressions

    This isn’t a full review, I’ve only played with the Rift briefly tonight and wanted to get some thoughts down before heading to bed for an early morning. I’m planning on a much more complete review later, and a complete review of the Vive I should be getting in a couple of weeks, and finally […]

    My new ARM goal: hosting

    I’ve been doing a lot of work on various ARM things. A lot of it has been in support of making community builds of Chef for other folks, but I have a new goal: providing ARM nodes to the Internet at large as a hosting option. I’m not going to go into a lot of […]

    Mainline Linux 4.4 kernel on a Jetson TK1

    I was really hoping this would be easier than it was. Most (all?) of the pieces needed are upstream, with a minor patch for das U-boot needed to make it all work with L4T. I’m going to provide links to my u-boot images and kernel packages, but first I wanted to go over what I’ve […]

    The very overdue ARM update

    Lots to get to, so I’ll just jump right in: Uppel CX-R8 I gave up on this device a bit too soon it seems. Someone found these blog posts and reached out about rooting a CX-R8. While I wasn’t able to help him much, he helped me greatly by providing links to a TWRP recovery […]

    The Arcade Project

    I love arcade games. Some of my favorites are S.T.U.N. Runner, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Sinistar, and Tempest. I like the fighting games like Street Fighter, King of Fighters, Mortal Kombat, etc but are not very good at them. Ten years ago, I worked for a video game company and my “boss” also very much […]

  • Long overdue follow-up from my previous post. Let me dive in by topic: Uppel/Sunchip CX-R8 After a lot of roadblocks, I’ve given up on this particular platform. The primary reason for this was getting the MK68 boxes and being able to compare the two. The CX-R8 is pretty hacker un-friendly. The bootloader does some form […]

    Hacking the Uppel/Sunchip CX-R8

    As part of my job at Chef, I’m responsible for getting Chef on strange platforms. At the 2015 Chef Seattle Community Summit, I discovered that the community has a lot of interest in getting Chef on strange platforms as well. I was helping a community member get Chef running on an ARMv8 (also known as […]
