WHOA! why didn't I find that years ago?

apt-get install jq

echo '[{"name":"JSON", "good":true}, {"name":"XML", "good":false}]' |  jq -C .

 

 

Nice! found via... http://xmodulo.com/2013/05/how-to-parse-json-string-via-command-line-on-linux.html

Going to the TAPR/ARRL Digital Communications Conference (tapr.org/dcc) tomorrow. Super excited for this.

Among the speakers is Erik Westgard, who will present "Applications and Infrastructure for Marathon Support." It may be a variation on this presentation (http://www.slideshare.net/ny9d/network1q), which mentions in passing (on slide 11) how
Citadel is used for coordination and communication, including text mode over packet.

I think this is insanely amusing. I would love to run a BBS over HF radio. Just because.

Anyway, fiscal year realities mean that work is not paying for me to attend after all, but the LT said I could just go on my own (which I'd already planned to do) and take a pass day instead of taking chargeable leave. So that's something.

Bruce Perens will also be speaking this weekend. It should be terribly interesting.

Hey Sig, say hi to Erik for me.  I wondered why he did not stop by my office with some gear for the Twin Cities Marathon today, but I suppose he forgot he was busy.  I agree, he is a super amusing, but also good at getting things done and building a quirky community.  Yes, the Citadel usage is real (I have some first hand knowledge in that area).  I wish I could go the the DCC some day.   If only it could come back to Minnesota, but the last time was back in '94.

http://about.psyc.eu/XMPP

entertaining read. I like at most:

 

Dave Cridland writes:

"You're correct in your assertion that framed data would mean clean binary transfers, but that isn't a goal of XMPP - anyone shipping binary data directly through XMPP is simply doing something inefficient. If you do want to ship large binary objects, it's more efficient to send them either via email, or send a URL via XMPP, and ship the data by a more suitable protocol."

 

Binary, Email and efficient in one sentence, that could only be said by an XML-Zealot.

Gads.

Shipping binary information via e-mail, described as 'efficient'?

Screwing around with my Pi a little more.

It has a very nice graphics card in it, so I want to compile omxplayer so I can fart around with the graphics capabilities from source.

I probably should have stuck with g++ instead of trying to move to clang, though. I don't think clang likes the standard library currently installed.

Heh... sadly, even g++ is having trouble compiling this on the Pi itself.
Hmm... should be able to do this.

I've been thinking about getting a Pi but I don't know what I'd do with it and I already have a host of other UNIX/Linux machines that run 24/7 and do nothing.

That's unlikley to stop me in the long run, though.

the pi or the olimexino or qubieboard can do the same for a much smaller footprint on your electricity bill.

It's quite light on the bill.

Finally got the omxplayer to compile properly... helps to make sure gcc and g++ are linked to 4.7 and not 4.6.

Yes, but do they do nothing in a small form factor?

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Well here's the best Pi case I've seen so far:

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/11/11/review_raspberry_pi_fuze_case_and_kit/ ]

They've built it out as an old-skool keyboard console, like from the 1980's.  The Pi fits in the back, has all of the ports fitted to nice receptacles on the back of the unit ... and then they've got a breadboard up top with the GPIO pins available right next to it.

This has to be the ultimate setup for any nostalgic fortysomething geek!

probably the cables to connect everything to the back of the device is as expensive as an olimexino costs more than a pi - and it has all important sockets on one side, plus it features the olimex UEXT connector which you can find lots of open expansion designs for.

Jesus H.! That is a nice case!

But also Jumping H, $110 US?  We need to come up with a way to make the rack of bits cheaper than that.

maybe missing some basic features to hack there, but SO CUTE!

Well, I'm sure you could build something. I'm totally cheap so I'd probably go that route. It's not that hard to build a box out of wood or even plastic/metal that can house a USB keyboard. Mine would have to have a ton of LED's all over the place.

Of course, if you want a *real* retro look, you could always dismantle an old Apple and buy one of these (very expensive) boards to interface its keyboard to the Pi: [ https://www.tindie.com/products/option8/retroconnector-keyboard-shield-for-apple-iie/ ]

Not for me, though. I cut my teeth on CP/M and S-100, so I would need a key-switch for power and a reset button that glows white.

Anyone have any thoughts on SANS courses? I would never be able to shell out circa $4k for a week-long course out of pocket, but there is a distinct chance I could be sent through work in a few months, probably for the course that is geared to lead up to the GSEC.
