How to Customize Kodi v15 (was XBMC) with All the Bells and Whistles

How to Customize Kodi v15 (was XBMC) with All the Bells and Whistles
Kodi (formerly known as XBMC) is a great entertainment center software. But, here’s the deal: Like many other open source projects, it is driven by a very technical community, and it is not necessarily user-friendly enough for the average person to use and customize. Fortunately, with a bit of time and the right skin, you can set things up properly and make Kodi (XBMC) very user-friendly and rock solid. I have spent countless hours crawling forums and websites, trying to get the live TV setup, premium online content, automatic light control, and all the other settings right. Note: These step-by-step instructions have been tested with Kodi v15, but they should also be compatible with v16 (codename Jarvis). In this extensive and updated guide, I will walk you through the relevant customization tips and tricks needed to take your Kodi installation to the next level.

The Only Raspberry Pi 3 Kodi Tutorial You Will Ever Need In this updated guide, you will learn how to set up Raspberry Pi 3 as a complete Kodi (was XBMC) entertainment center solution with the right accessories. Over the past couple of years, I have had mixed feelings about Raspberry Pi as a Kodi based front-end device, because even after using all possible optimization tricks it simply was not responsive enough for my requirements. Fortunately, with the latest Raspberry Pi 3 this is not the case anymore.

Free online course on building a simple Raspberry Pi OS from the University of Cambridge This summer, the University of Cambridge Computer Lab has been home to a small group working on projects with the Raspberry Pi. Alex Chadwick is one of those people, and he’s produced this: a free course on building a very simple operating system for the Raspberry Pi in assembly language. The course opens with some explanations about what assembly language is – and, importantly, what an operating system really is; you’ll learn some new concepts and possibly some new terms, and then you’ll dive headlong into practical work. You will work through sessions which teach you how to enable and manipulate one of the board’s LEDs, then learn some graphics theory and start generating lines, text and random numbers. Eventually you’ll be manipulating text to display computed values, and learning how to build your own command line interface. Many thanks to the University of Cambridge Computer lab for making the course available, and especially to Alex.

5 Reasons I Am Still a Self-Contained Teacher For the last ten years of my career, I go to work every day with a mild case of cognitive dissonance. This is because while I am a promoter of inclusive education (even for those students with the most significant disabilities) I continue to be a self-contained classroom teacher. This means that in my head, I understand that the setting I teach in is not necessarily the most ideal placement for my students. Yet I continue to teach in this setting because I love the students I work with and desire to give them access to the general curriculum in an authentic and meaningful way.

Support for GPIO-driven interrupts maddin1234 wrote:Ok, perhaps MY process is sleeping, but then POLL has to run to thedoor and wake me up when someone is there.I didn't have a look into poll.c, but from the name I guess it is polling. poll(), and the similar select(), are the standard system calls for checking and/or waiting for one or more files to become ready for I/O. With a timeout value of zero, poll() simply checks whether each of the files is in the requested state and returns immediately. So you can use it to make your own polling loops. But with a non-zero timeout value, and if none of the requested conditions are already met, poll() puts the current process in an (interruptible) sleep state until some asynchronous event elsewhere on the system changes the state of one of files, or causes the timeout to expire.

theconversation A shortage of special education teachers is threatening the ability of schools in many states to provide high-quality education to students with disabilities. On a national level, 49 states identified a shortage of special education and related service personnel during the 2013-14 school year. In Arizona, for instance, where districts reported a 29 percent increase from 2013 to 2014 in the number of positions that remained vacant, special education was one of the areas with the highest vacancy rates. Special educators serve students with significant learning and behavioral needs. To effectively serve their students, they must have sophisticated knowledge and skills about content, pedagogy and students' learning. Raspberry Pi WiringPi provides some helper functions to allow you to manage your program (or thread) priority and to help launch a new thread from inside your program. Threads run concurrently with your main program and can be used for a variety of purposes. To learn more about threads, search for “Posix Threads” Program or Thread Priority

Serial Library WiringPi includes a simplified serial port handling library. It can use the on-board serial port, or any USB serial device with no special distinctions between them. You just specify the device name in the initial open function. To use, you need to make sure your program includes the following file: #include <wiringSerial.h>
