Here is a neat fix for making ie7 deal with inline blocks:

My AVR Dragon arrived today. It enables me to debug as well as program with the STK600. It plugs into the STK600 via the 6 pin ISP ribbon and via USB to the PC. You have to also remove the jumper on the reset on the STK600. Now in AVR Studio you can enable debug wire on the fuse and use the debug button.

Its been along time since I really did any electronics work and programming the ATTiny44 microcontroller has got be back into it. I’ve ordered some electronic starter kits, Beginners and Component Kit as the first you can use with some tutorials from the electronics club web site. The first circuit I’ve made is a 555 timer which is is sending its signal to a 4017 decade counter. A 555 timer can have lots of functions but I’m using it as an astable circuit. This means it makes regular pulses on its own without any interaction from you. The 55 does this by continual charging and d... [More]

The ATTiny44 is a small 8 bit AVR microcontroller with a 10Mhx processor, 4KB of Flash, 256B of EEPROM and 256B of SRAM. There is a comprehensive data sheet from Atmel which is pretty much the bible for when trying to program the chip. There are also lots of copies of the STK600’s manual online. When you first look on the Atmel web site for finding the equipment needed to program an AVR microcontroller, your naturally drawn towards the starter kit, the latest version of which is the STK600, I was. Once you start looking around on the internet people say it has a few draw... [More]

This is my first foray into Linux. It makes sense to do it now with a powerful server going into colocation I can make the most of offing Linux hosting to clients.
I’m going with Centos 6 as my first option. This is how I got on.
I’m aming to install the LAMP stack so play to try and follow http://library.linode.com/lamp-guides/centos-6
First things first make sure you install a legacy network adapter on the virtual machine as by default linux doesn’t pick up the standard adapter.
I downloaded the DVD ISOs from the University of Kent mirror service via the Cen... [More]

So, all of the parts for the colocation server have arrived. In the end I have gone for: Supermicro SYS-2026T-6RF+ Xeon 2.4ghz E5645 24GB Ram 9 x 147GB 10K SAS6Gb Drives The super micro board is a beast, supporting 2 processors and its 18 DIMM slots supporting 198GB of RAM. This server should be good for a while. The 9 2.5” SAS Drives are only 147GB. I wanted 300GB but the hard drive shortages and high costs at the moment made it impossible to get anything but very small or very large SAS drives, and my budget wasn’t going to stretch to 9 900GB SAS drives righ...
