Perris…

I got to Seattle yesterday after spending the weekend in Perris.  Apparently there is no other reason to go to Perris other than to skydive.  I would have to agree i am sorry to say.  The skydiving ROCKED!  Did 14 jumps in a couple of days.  Managed a bunch of coaching jumps with Fritz from…

SFF PCs

After a while of not getting around to it i invested in a Shuttle SB61G2 SFF (Small Form Factor) PC.  Have to say that unless i wanted super flexibility then this is all i would ever need. Everything is onboard.  Firewire, USB 2.0, SATA, 6 Channel sound, NIC, 800MHz FSB etc… One PCI slot (still…

COM port programming and .Net

I am doing some work at the moment that requires me to talk to a GPS device over an rs232 connection.  Unfortunatly there are currently no classes in the .Net Framework 1.1 to do this … which means having to either use MSComm ActiveX control (yuk) or doing a world of Platform Invoke commands to call…
