I’ve been helping with a small project over at Homelabs.org.uk to produce a cheap, modular Internet Of Things gateway. Progress can be followed on its dedicated page. So far it has support for a number of wireless connections including RFM12 for Jeelab related sensor nodes, XBee and XRF. The data, once collected can then [...]
Having recently acquired a Raspberry Pi on loan for a few days I decided to try some interfacing. The simple solution would have been to put together a cable and header plug to connect to the I/O pins on the Raspberry Pi. This would need a custom circuit each time I wanted to try [...]
It looks like its been an absolute age since I posted anything here, too much going on but here are a few things I’ve been doing:
Mbed based IoT Gateway Attending IoT London Meetups and Giving talk on mbed IoT gateway CO Sensors using details from here Helping fund a kickstarter project Amazon Web [...]
As one of those that has taken up the TinyBasic Christmas Challenge issued by Ken Boak, the creator of Nanode, a range of Arduino compatible microcontroller boards, I am posting my updates. The basic code is able to run simple Basic commands and run small programs. What it lacked is a place to store [...]
Recently I made a presentation to the Nanode application development weekend to demonstrate how to send a new sketch to a Nanode. The idea is that the nanode is a network connected device and with a small addition to the ENC28J60 library it would be possible for it to act as a simple TFTP [...]
I had to laugh at this spam that dropped into my junk folder:

I’ve created a small library to dump received ethernet packets to the serial port. Pull the code from Github at https://github.com/thiseldo/EthPacketDump for more.
See the README file for how to use it.

A while ago I bought an Arduino proto-shield in kit form from www.nuelectronics.com, but the problem is that it requires soldering to fix it all together but does allow you to do small temporary circuits. However fitting a small breadboard to the proto-shield makes it more useful. Small breadboards are available but the one [...]
Finally manage to get a picture of the new laptop and my 1TB external hard drive.
Laptop is dual booting into Winnows XP and Suse Linux 11.0. It was quite tricky to setup in the first place but once sorted it runs quite [...]
