Web site moved to Octopress

April 5, 2013 by Yellow Feather

If you’re reading this, you may have noticed that I have migrated my web site / blog from Wordpress to Octopress. I had to manually update some of the posts, and it took a day or so for the comments to become available in Disqus, otherwise it was pretty painless. The orginal URLs should be redirected to the new ones. If you notice any problems, please let me know.

Userland SPI on the BeagleBone with Ubuntu

March 26, 2012 by Chris Richards

For a project I’m working on I want to get a BeagleBone talking to a nRF24L01+ module. The first step is to get userland SPI access working on the BeagleBone, and last week I spent some time getting this going. The good news is that Robert C Nelson has merged my patch into his github repo linux-dev and a prebuilt image is available to download. Read on to learn how to build from source and get details of the patch.
