Just a bunch of things I get done

This is the playground for my Arduino, Raspberry Pi and Web projects.

  • Silencing GreenBox

    I bought a Gigabyte Brix Gaming computer, which is a pretty strong machine for its size. But it has a major drawback: it is incredibly loud. Thus I have 3D printed a case and replaced the two 40 mm fans with 120 mm ones that are quiet.

  • Introduction to OpenMAX on the Raspberry Pi

    As I want to dive deeper into the Raspberry Pi, I tapped into the hardware accelerated media capabilities. This is my journey into OpenMAX.

  • Fairmount, VideoLAN Client and the Bagels

    This article gives you a hint about how to get Fairmount to work in these days as it’s not supported anymore.

  • Camera RAW Compatibility Updates in Snow Leopard

    Many updates are tied to certain versions of software that needs to be present. But in some cases it is ridiculous because the required software is also no longer provided by Apple. Buying a new computer just to be able to use a cameras RAW files is also no option.

  • Improved method for storing normals as a series of bytes

    This article describes a method to pack vertex normals into just three bytes using an approach that provides better results than just regular conversion.
