Bumblebee is my Roomba, so named as long ago he lost his voice. About a year ago his logic board started playing up and though he was still able to clean, at the end of each cleaning cycle he wouldn’t go into standby and his battery would drain in no time. At that […]
The Satellite Applications Catapult are very lucky to have the facilities they have and believe they have the potential to help save lives. To that end they’re opening their toy box for everyone to play with to try and do just that at their next hackathon. The premise is simple; in a disaster scenario, how would you […]

Since my last post I’ve improved the Arduino speedo code to respond to requests and also tweaked the gear ration to be a bit closer to my road bike. I’ve also implemented a simple speedo interface using Unity.

My dad’s an […]
Catchy title, I know…
In the big GIS project I’m working on we have a large set of data, 100 million rows+, which needs to be rendered as an overlay. This turned out to be tricky as I’m not really a GIS developer and learning as I go. I figured it out through trial and error so […]
After installing it I quickly managed to configure […]
So I’ve been trying to get to grips with scripting for git to allow me to commit then deploy via FTP on Windows. I discovered git-ftp which looked promising but it was Linux flavoured, I followed the rabbit hole all the way to installing Cygwin and attempting to build it for Windows before realising I […]
