New Look

Well, I got a new look thanks to Nate Ernst over at Varloo Design

I rather like the new look he gave. I got it by submitting a small little project to Weekend Hacker. I suggest everyone try it. It's pretty nifty.

New Computer. Woot!

So I'm building my own computer.. and it's basically going to be hardcore.

All this awesome hardware goodness for a total of only $600, of which $11 is shipping. Of course, I do save quite a bit of money though for other reasons. I don't have to buy a license of Windows because I use Arch Linux and I don't have to buy a graphics card because I have an extra one. Of course, I'm a programmer, not a gamer though.

Except pictures soon! I'm hoping it comes in tomorrow, otherwise it won't be til Monday

mbed :)

I got my mbed today. It actually is extremely simple. It took me a bit to figure out the options to give to mount so that I could write to the umass device without sudo. But that's not mbed's fault. Anyway, Very simple and I've just compiled the hello world program and it works. One note for anyone who has problems with their mbed and programming: When you download the file onto the device(on Arch Linux at least), it won't actually put the program on the device until some undetermined time. To force it to put it on there now, you'll have to run the sync command after downloading a program.
