It is my great pleasure to inform you folks that, almost after four years, I did a new release of LibSWD-0.7 , a low-level embedded systems access open framework. Special thanks goes to Andrew Parlane of Carallon Ltd  for his much appreciated contributions! Well now I feel like I need to invent some nice small device based on ARM Cortex-M0 CPU 🙂
Each big failure makes me more calm. Strange.
If you want to install additional Python  modules inside your Blender  environment, you can install PIP using this recommended script , then use PIP to install all modules that you want. Note Blender’s Python Virtualenv location is /path_to_blender/blender_version/python/bin/python and you need to use this particular interpreter to launch the script.
Python 3.6.0 NumPy and SciPy from MacPorts crash on import bug .
Google have implemented my idea to make Google Books TTS work like an audio player – it can now work in background and being controlled with bluetooth headset – so I can play, pause and rewind paragraphs of the book read by speech synthesizer just as it was music. This is soo fantastic!!
I have been proposing this solution to Amazon to implement in Kindle for Android, but for years they did not listen. I have switched to Kindle application after Amazon bricked my Kindle3 3G reader with a software update (and all other devices worldwide). Now I just wait until Google Books allow to import my Kindle library, and I will never go back to Kindle. Greedy loses twice.
I have recently started the OrangeADE project , that is Orange Autonomous Device Evaluation, an online platform to evaluate security level of network equipment and verify against known vulnerabilities. OrangeADE is released as Open-Source under the “new” 3-Clause BSD license. Enjoy the work in progress! 🙂
You just need to see this awsome Mars Curiosity  simuluator  made by NASAJPL  with Blender3D  Blend4Web  HTML5  WebGL  Free and Open-Source Software 🙂
Blender 3D can work with DualShock4 Playstation4 wireless controller over Bluetooth .
Use advanced features of your Synaptics Trackpad on a laptop running FreeBSD  with:
- set in /boot/loader.conf:
- set in /etc/rc.conf:
- set in /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Mouse0" Driver "mouse" Option "Protocol" "auto" Option "Device" "/dev/sysmouse" Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7" EndSection
If you want to have “MacBook” like two-finger scrolling along with other parameters you can set in /etc/sysctl.conf:
hw.psm.synaptics.min_pressure=16 hw.psm.synaptics.max_pressure=220 hw.psm.synaptics.max_width=10 hw.psm.synaptics.vscroll_hor_area=1300 hw.psm.synaptics.vscroll_ver_area=-600 hw.psm.synaptics.vscroll_min_delta=50 hw.psm.synaptics.vscroll_div_min=100 hw.psm.synaptics.vscroll_div_max=150 hw.psm.synaptics.weight_current=3 hw.psm.synaptics.weight_previous=6 hw.psm.synaptics.weight_previous_na=20 hw.psm.synaptics.weight_len_squared=2000 hw.psm.synaptics.div_min=9 hw.psm.synaptics.div_max=17 hw.psm.synaptics.div_max_na=30 hw.psm.synaptics.div_len=100 hw.psm.synaptics.margin_top=200 hw.psm.synaptics.margin_right=200 hw.psm.synaptics.margin_bottom=200 hw.psm.synaptics.margin_left=200 hw.psm.synaptics.window_min=4 hw.psm.synaptics.window_max=10 hw.psm.synaptics.multiplicator=10000
If you want to use NTFS volumes on FreeBSD , you need to use FUSE infrastructure andNTFS-3G  port. Syntax of fstab is a bit differen in this case:
/dev/ntfs_partition /mnt/ntfs_mounpoint fuse rw,locale=pl_PL.UTF8,mountprog=/usr/local/bin/ntfs-3g 0 0
Also remember to put fuse_load=”YES” in /boot/loader.conf and install the sysutils/fusefs-ntfs port. Do not use hibernated volumes.
