Hakology Day 15 : Blog Entry

[1005]
Wow two weeks, time flies when you’re having fun. Knuckling down again today hopefully somewhere near to completing the gqrx video. Spent some of the weekend teaching a friend python and the other half modding my retropie. After spending a few days working on it, its coming together quite nicely. Loads of classics, managed to setup dosbox and test some ports. NB. Some ports seem to FUBAR the card / os / boot. Select carefully when installing them. Once you have a good working SD card F£$%ING image it (*as regularly as possible whilst building your retropie install*) I’ve had to start from scratch a few times, once is annoying but on your fifth attempt it starts to get a little frustrating.
Right coffee and breakfast time.

Ended up having to help a friend out earlier, but back to the computing now. Looks like gqrx is even easier to setup in linux than in windows that makes a nice change.

Notes written and I think i’ve worked out how to record the linux installs. Even managed to get the RTLSDR working in vitual box, but its bit late to start recording.

Hakology Day 13 : Blog Entry

[0006]
Had a really chilled out day today, think I deserve one after the last twelve days! Visited a friends and took the RPi3 loaded with retropie and about twenty games, not the best games but a selection of a few good old ones. Spent the entirety of the evening chatting about old computers and consoles, by the time I was leaving they wanted me to order another for them, they were that impressed.

Just going to spend a few hours on the SDR and have a quick blast on steam. Hope you lot have a wicked weekend, having fun, doing all the hacks, will be back blogging tomorrow. Peace.
