Assembly Chess on Raspberry Pi (without any OS)

July 30th, 2014 No comments

Some time back I came across Assembly Chess on Raspberry Pi (without any OS) and today I managed to get this done and finished.  I am impressed, it is well implemented, and just worked straight out of the box.

At least I found some decent use for an empty iPhone 3GS box – you could fit the Raspberry Pi in there as well.

I had some wonderful moments like when I was playing with LEGO as a kid… thank you Xu, Bora and Gun!

Reading a lots on the Net? Here is something for you.

March 5th, 2011 No comments

If you read a lots of articles on the Internet, you are usually easily distracted. There are flashing/moving adverts, the text might not be the best size or even the background is chosen poorly.

Have a look at Readability. Their slogan is “Transform any article into a clean, comfortable reading view – instantly”. It leaves only the main article behind, some metainformation and obviously the pictures for that article. You can adjust the contrast, the font the way you like it to improve readability.

Their new model is now subscription based. The majority of that goes to the actual website, a minor part to Readability. I suppose this is for loss of revenue through banners and adverts.

You can try it for free via their Add-On on Readability for Firefox. A Bookmarklet is available here. It seems that the Firefox Extension from Mozilla Add-Ons is outdated.
