V0.2: 8th September 2012 V0.3: 30th November 2012 [Updated with less direct linking to MPICH2 downloads] V0.4: 9th January 2013 [Updated step 33] First steps to get machine up 1. I originally used: Updated 30/11/12: My advice is to to check the downloads page on and use the latest version. 2. You will use the “Write” option to put the image from the disk to your card 3. 4. $ sudo raspi-config 5. $ passwd 6. $ exit 7. Building MPI so we can run code on multiple nodes 8. $ sudo apt-get update 9. 10. $ sudo apt-get install gfortran 11. Note there are a few things to note here a) Since we put Fortran in we are good to go without excluding anything b) The packages here are for armel and we need armhf in this case… so we are going to build MPI ourselves 12. 13. 1.

Police in North Carolina Patrol in a Corvette The nonpolice version of the Corvette Z06. Speeders in Wake County, N.C., will have to go pretty fast if they want to outrun the police department’s latest interceptor — a Chevrolet Corvette Z06. The Wake County police recently seized the Corvette from a drug dealer, said David Cooke, the county manager, according to the News & Observer. The car is being used to patrol Interstate 40. RapidIO The RapidIO architecture is a high-performance packet-switched, interconnect technology. RapidIO supports both messaging and read/write semantics. RapidIO fabrics guarantee in-order packet delivery, enabling power- and area- efficient protocol implementation in hardware. Based on industry-standard electrical specifications such as those for Ethernet, RapidIO can be used as a chip-to-chip, board-to-board, and chassis-to-chassis interconnect. The protocol is marketed as The Embedded Fabric of Choice, and is used in many applications that are constrained by at least one of size, weight, and power (SWaP). History[edit]

10 Raspberry Pi creations that show how amazing the tiny PC can be The Raspberry Pi, the $35 credit card-sized computer, has lived an interesting life despite being less than a year old. It has been used to teach programming and host servers, but above all it has provided a near-perfect platform for some of the most fun and interesting hobbyist projects in the computing world. Arcade cabinets, computing clusters housed in LEGOs, musical instruments, robots, and wearable computers are just some of the uses Pi owners have found. It turns out you can do a lot with an ARM processor, GPU, a few ports and GPIO pins, and an operating system (typically Linux-based) loaded onto an SD card. Here are 10 of the coolest Raspberry Pi creations we've been able to find. A Pi-powered arcade cabinet

Egocide and suicide | The Psychology of Me Lately, I’ve been thinking about egocide. (Why does my autocorrect want to change that to “geocode”??) I’m at the end of my rope and climbing back up is not an option. I’ve got to change. Drastically change. Kill off the “Ken” I think I am and reinvent “Ken.”

NVM Express NVM Express, NVMe, or Non-Volatile Memory Host Controller Interface Specification (NVMHCI), is a specification for accessing solid-state drives (SSDs) attached through the PCI Express (PCIe) bus. NVM is an acronym for non-volatile memory, as used in SSDs. A major application of NVMe is SATA Express, which is a new and backward-compatible interface specification supporting either SATA or PCI Express storage devices. SATA Express can use either legacy AHCI or new NVMe as the logical device interface.[1] Background[edit] XRF wireless RF radio UART RS232 serial data module XBee shape Now shipping XRF v2.0 As of 27th November 2013 we are now shipping XRF v2.0 modules, these are based on the SRF v1.2 module. Althouth they look diffrent from the v1.5 they are compatible with the expection on some LLAP personalites, for more details see this blog post XRF v2.0. Product description Our extremely popular easy to use RF serial data module with great range and XBee style pin layout.
