Subpixel layout - Lagom LCD test

Each pixel on an LCD screen consists of three subpixels: red, green, and blue (RGB), that are sitting next to each other. Most operating systems since about 2003 can improve the quality of on-screen text by using these subpixels. However, this only works if the operating system knows how the subpixels are arranged. For the majority of the monitors, the arrangement is RGB (red on the left, green in the middle, and blue on the right).

However, on an occasional monitor, it is the other way around (BGR). Observe the colored square below from close by, e.g. 20 cm or 8 inch. If you find that your screen is not RGB, you may want to verify that your operating system handles subpixel rendering correctly for your display. If you wear glasses, you need to pay attention that your glasses do not separate the colors. Below you can see text rendered with various smoothing techniques.

DIY USB password generator » Code and Life. Having done half a dozen V-USB tutorials I decided it’s time to whip up something cool.

DIY USB password generator » Code and Life

As USB keyboards were an area untouched, I decided to make a small USB HID keyboard device that types a password stored in EEPROM every time it’s attached. A new password can be generated just by tabbing CAPS LOCK a few times (4 times to start password regeneration and one tab for each password character generated, 10 is the default password length). Below you can see the device in action: The place I work at requires me to change my password every few months so this would be one way to skip remembering a new password altogether (as long as I remember to write it down before regenerating a new one so password can be changed :). What is inside? The device is powered with a simplified version of the hardware I used in my ATtiny85 USB tutorial – I stripped away the LCD, reset pullup and both capacitors. The enclosure was graciously donated by an old 512 MB flash drive. Software Update 2: Indiegogo project.

Chroot-ing in Windows – As Easy as A:, B:, C:… « Just Let It Flow

While recent developments of Windows are slowly catching up with variously featured versions of whoami, ln (mklink) cat (copy con), grep (find), ps (tasklist, taskkill) and chmod (icacls), one app that’s so far evaded the conversion is chroot. For those unaware, chroot allows you to run an application using some specified directory as its filesystem root dir instead of the normal filesystem root. Whatever the reason may be for its absence, it is definitely not because there’s is no support mechanism for it.
