Pico Protoshield Kit!

Category : Arduino, Electronics, Uncategorized

I was just checking out if there was anything new on Modified Electronics, those who makes theseย geniusย small pico arduinos.

And yes! A very nice shield for use with the pico, Pico Protoshield Kit!
Of course the small breadboard and the pico arduino is sold separately!

Some 3d models made with 3dsmax 2009

Category : Uncategorized

Yeah, I had to test out the latest 3dsmax. It’s been a while since I modelled anthing at all, since C# has taken some of my creativity time ๐Ÿ˜›

So, I found this old Athlon processor that was just laying around. Got my cam up and took some texture-photos, and fixed them abit in paint.net. Also modelled the ram chip that was taken out of my Asus EEE when I upgraded it’s memory: Well heres the result:

And one final of both the models:

Oh, and to make them lay around like randomly I used the reactor physics ๐Ÿ™‚

Just upgraded my pc!

Category : Uncategorized

So, it was time to upgrade my pc. Since my old Athlon 64 3500+ couldn’t keep up, also my 7800gt was to blame.

So I ordered a E8400, Asus P5E, 8800GT and a 4gig ram set. And I got a aircooling, yes my old watercooling is crap. And this time I want something safe, and cheaper. I was worried there would be too much noise, since I’d have some more fans in my comp-case. But it’s very nice, It’s the same noise level as with my watercooling. Only “problem” is the temperature, I get around 52 under heavy load.

But my 8800gt was like a big big big tornado spinning up! Much more noise then my old 7800gt, even when running at full speed. So I got a Zalman VF700-Cu, now thats one great cooler! It’s quieter and cooler, also it’s perfect for overclocking. Tried my card at 720mhz(600), but no big performance gain. ๐Ÿ˜›

Also got some rubber-thingys from eBay, to silent some 120mm fans. And it works very well, the vibration-noise dissapeared!

Anyhow, finally I can test Crysis at full ๐Ÿ˜€

Update: KeyPresser 0.2


Category : Uncategorized

Yes, I added some more features to the key press program.

Current Features:
Many different intervals for buttons to be clicked.
Custom buttons, lets you write youโ€™re own button combination to be pressed.
Default buttons, like enter, page up etc.
Minimize to tray, hides it while running if you want.
Also logs how many key presses made.
NEW, delayed start.
NEW, F1-F12 and more predefined buttons.

Of course itโ€™s freeware, and you might download and share it as much as you want.

Good C#/sharp tutorials!


Category : Uncategorized

When porting over, or starting with C# it’s a good idea to have some decent tutorials. When I went from VB I had no clue how to start with C#. So I googled some nice tutorials, and bookmarked them.

I’ve been using them for some time now, and some are better than others. Or I like some better than others, since I learned more from them. So why not list them here? ๐Ÿ™‚

The first tutorial/lesson I found was one covering the basics of C#. Gives a good overview of the basics, and doesn’t get too complicated. So it’s a nice and smooth start.

Then there is this one, it’s more focused towards the visual C#, and most of the examples got pictures from the IDE showing what to do. So it’s also a very good resource.

I also use C# Wikibook as a reference when it’s something I’m stuck at, which is quite often. But my main reference is of course the MSDN-Libary, it got everything!

Also there are some tools for converting VB to C# and C# to VB ๐Ÿ™‚ DeveloperFusion got this one, then there is one called CodeTranslator here. My experience with these are mixed, they might convert some basic code. But mostly it’s like using babelfish 0.1 ๐Ÿ˜›

Also if you want some damn good video tutorials covering most parts of C# & .NET then you should check out learnvisualstudio.net. It’s quite cheap and you get access to over 500 videos ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ve been member there for some weeks now, and it’s great! I find video tutorials easier to understand, and I can have them running while programming.

So this all is what I’m using to learn myself C#, and it’s going to take some time. I probably only scratched the surface at this point. If you read this, please leave a tip if you got some nice tutorials or other stuff about C# ๐Ÿ™‚

Program tip: KeyPresser 0.1

Category : Uncategorized

A friend of me was in need of a simple key presser. So I made one for him, and I just thought to put it on my blog for others to use. Maybe someone just needs a key presser? To refresh something or to annoy someone on msn?

Many different intervals for buttons to be clicked.
Custom buttons, lets you write you’re own button combination to be pressed.
Default buttons, like enter, page up etc.
Minimize to tray, hides it while running if you want.
Also logs how many keypresses made.

Of course it’s freeware, and you might download and share it as much as you want.

There are many uses for such an app.

Update, about everything :P

Category : Uncategorized

Yes, it’s been some time since I posted something here. So here I go!

The RC-season is just starting, as the snow gently melts and then comes back again. It’s not letting go that easy. But I’m really hoping to get my FP2 outside someday to practice more, I bet my skills have dropped some during the winter time.

Also I found out that two of my batteries got weak, so weak that they can’t be used for anything. They just wont charge, and my lama barley lifts off the ground with them. One raiden battery and one extreme productions battery. They are now disposed, may their mAh rest in peace.

Anyhow I’ve ordered two new batteries from DX, and since they are so cheap with the combination of the dollar it’s no problem ๐Ÿ™‚

I dunno if I forgot to mention about my Asus EEE, well it arrived 1-2 weeks after I ordered it. And I’ve been using it now for some months, and it’s great!

But now the Asus EEE 900 is getting close to release. 1024×600 would be lovely! But I got my old asus eee.

LifeBiz 0.1 Release!

Category : Uncategorized

0.1 is ready!

Yep, I’ve given it some time, run trough it many times. Everything seems to work fine. But remember this is 0.1 beta, and if you run into some bugs/errors please let me know.

Now off to work on 0.2 wink.gif

.NET Framework 3.5 is required (not sure if you can run it on 2.0):



Category : Uncategorized

My new project, a life simulator type of game. Called LifeBiz, written in Visual C#.

0.1 is currently in development and will be available in short time.

VB.NET —> C# and RC update.

Category : Uncategorized

It’s about time, lets leave VB behind!

I jumped over to C#, which is a .NET language just like VB.NET. And since god almighty Microsoft has these nice looking, somewhat fresh and delicious express editions. The choice was easy, and of course I’m used to Visual Studio from when using VB 6.0 and VB.net 2005 & 2008 express editions.

One of the big differences I noticed when starting with C# was the { and }, also the case sensitivity. Now when looking back at some VB code, I got problems reading it. It’s so messy ๐Ÿ˜›

I’ve also bought a book from Uncle Sam, the Sams Teach yourself Visual C# in 24 hours. It makes the change easier, it covers the basics of the Visual Studio and the C# language. Which is just what I need!

So, over to the RC front. Theres not happening anything right now, since theres a cold winter going on. And almost bad weather everyday.
