Last week, I returned from a 12 day survey, which was at Black Sea. And I’ve also been working on a board for work recently.  Since we have a 50Mhz 2-channel oscilloscope with 16-channel logic analyzer on the boat, it was pretty fun to work on the board there.


On the boat. Running Python test code on PyCharm, as the scope shows me the zeros and ones.

But eventually I came back home, and all I have is a 25Mhz 2-channel oscilloscope and a USBee AX Pro clone logic analyzer from China. The LA works good with the original software, but it’s Windoze only, and it’s not very stable. So I found Pulseview.

I’m not going to show you how to install it on your box, since you can find the instructions for every OS here. All I needed was libsigrok, libsigrokdecode, and pulseview, so I installed them from the git repos. It’s an awesome program, but I wish it would let me save screenshots of the visuals (scrot is good enough for now), and also let me save the setup for later use (there’s a save session option and it works without loading the decoders, yet I can’t reaccess the device after opening the saved session). It sucks to setup and rename every channel, and decoder every time. Anyway, here are two screenshots.

Trilyonlar kazanan futbolculardan bu ülkede alınan vergi %15, isveç’te %59.5! Diğer yandan AMK adlı bomboş bir gazetenin reklamı, “Hangi futbolcu kaç milyona transfer oluyor, sadece 25 kuruşa gör!”. Allah belanızı versin… size para verenlerin de Allah belasını versin…

Böyle boklara vakit harcamak yerine, oturun da ülke için bir şeyler üretin. Ama sizde ne arar böyle yürek? En kolay para nerde var, hemen oraya koşun. Dostlarınızı bile kazıklayın üç kuruş için. Sonra da sanki trafik yokmuş gibi özel araçlarınıza binin, bok varmış gibi gezin. Cep telefonlarınıza bakarak mezarınıza doğru yürümeye devam edin… Scarface


Choice of Robots

“When people pick up your three-legged, wall-climbing robot that sings when it detects encrypted wireless packets, they ask: what the heck is that for? And you reply: what’s anything for? What are you for?”

Choice of Robots

There are many winds full of anger,
and lust and greed. They move the rubbish
around, but the solid mountain of true nature
stays where it’s always been.


Raspberry Pi 2 and Other Stuff

Got back from a 10 day survey in the Aegean Sea last Thursday. I think, It’s been a long time since the last time I posted something here. So, here we go.

Before the trip, about 2 weeks ago, my brother and I purchased two Raspberry Pi 2’s, and a Radxa Rock Pro (not going to use all of’em at once) for a future art project of his. I also got acrylic housings and a NoIR Camera for the Rpi 2’s. I’ve been playing around with the Raspberry Pi 2 (as Radxa Rock Pro waits for its turn), and I totally love it.
