For those of you not paying attention, people, with aid from the Wiili project have got the wiimote working, with with accelerometers and as a pointer on OSX, Linux, and even Windows (admittedly, the Windows version of things is a bit of an ugly cludge to get things working, but then again, so is windows). This is some pretty sweet stuff. I got to play around with it today, and while things could be improved a bit (such as setting what the buttons do when pressed on the OSX side), it is still cool. Great for those who use a home theater PC.
Yeah yeah, I know, I aint added much this month. Anyway, got my tax refund, and planning on getting a vinyl plotter for making decals and such. If there is anything y'all want, let me know.
Got my scanner running today on this machine. SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) added backend support for the NIASH chipset scanners, which happens to include the HP Scanjet 3300C scanner I have. Been playing with that.
Also, Wednesday I dropped a grand on a vinyl plotter, and gonna spend about another $500 on getting vinyl. My wallet hates me right now…
Router's being mister pissy and keeps dropping the wireless, for no reason.
Also, today, mom got a letter in the mail from the IRS saying she owes $24,000 in taxes for 2001. Thats kinda hard to believe, concidering thats alot more than she made that year. They decided to tax what was included in my Dad's 401k (which we still had at the time), however they neglected that we lost like 70% of what my dad put in. Fun times ahead.
Ok, not been good around here lately. Wes' powersupply died, so he borrowed the one from my plotter machine, his replacement that came in is defective, the vaio laptop died midprint on the plotter, my brother's machine crapped out, backed up his drive to one of mine only to have the drive of mine that I backed up to crap out, his motherboard went out after I got it fixed. Also order a 50 pack spindle of DVDR's, and of the 10 I tried, all 10 made. Also, gotta fix my PDA, kernel update didnt go too good on it.
On the plus side, got a order a vinyl decals done up.
