This Site is under construction


Life, the universe and everything!

This site is a bevy of reference of my interests. Rarely in depth knowledge nor detailed tutorials, the information presented here is more in the form of 'Quick starts', 'How-Tos', and 'Cheat Sheets'. The subjects of this site could be best grouped under the umbrella of science and engineering, with a particular focus on electronics, computers and their interaction in the real world, mechatronics.

You may notice a bias towards Python and Linux/Ubuntu, probably because they are which I use the most.

Linux

Linux is an open source unix based/compliant operating system. It is the most common operating system on everything from thermostats, phones and televisions through to the internet and supercomputers.



Ubuntu

Ubuntu is a free and open-source Linux distribution based on Debian. Ubuntu is officially released in three editions: Desktop, Server, and Core.

Electronics


Electronics

Electronics comprises the physics, engineering, technology and applications that deal with the emission, flow and control of electrons in vacuum and matter.


Mechatronics


Mechatronics

Electronics meets the mechanical. The flow of electrons imparts itself on the physical world, how good is that!


Software-defined radio


SDR

The ideal receiver scheme would be to attach an analog-to-digital converter to an antenna. A digital signal processor would read the converter, and then its software would transform the stream of data from the converter to any other form the application requires.

How this site was done.

This Site is made up of static pages and a wordpress blog.
The reason for static pages is, because of a basic knowledge of HTML, JavaScript and CSS, I like to "roll my own" using Sphinx/reStructuredText to create the pages. The resulting pages and directory structure, all created on my PC, are copied and synced to the server using the wonderful rsync command. (Maybe also a bit of a control freak!)


Acknowledgement

We stand on the shoulders of others in our quest for understanding. There are those in the past that have persisted, sometimes against great odds, to expose the truths of reality. It is to them, I humbly dedicate this site.
