Back to Boston for the summer

Sunday, April 27th, 2008

I’m going to be spending this summer working in Boston (well, Cambridge). I need somewhere to live from early June to late September.

I am looking to rent a furnished bedroom in a location with access to public transport (I’ll need to get to and from Kendall/MIT each day).

If anyone knows of anything, please let me know.

Dreaming

Monday, April 14th, 2008

The Pav√£o Quartet have released their fourth album today, “Dreaming.” The lead violinist, Kerenza, is a relative of mine.

Dreaming is similar to their 2006 debut album Someone to watch over me – a mix of well-known songs with some classical tracks too, all uniquely arranged for the quartet.

Buy it from HMV or Amazon.

  1. Grieg’s Nocturne
  2. Moon River
  3. Dream a Little Dream
  4. Somewhere Over the Rainbow
  5. When You Wish Upon a Star

  7. Gershwin’s Lullaby
  8. Elgar’s Lullaby
  9. Moonlight Sonata
  10. Forgotten Dreams
  11. Fly Me To the Moon

GL860: more devices, colour images

Tuesday, April 8th, 2008

Lorin Olivier also has a GL860 with a different USB ID (05e3:f191) in an Asus F5RL laptop. He had some success with my code but the images look to be in a different format when running my software. He’s contributed traffic logs from windows which I’ve put alongside mine in the git repository.

Simon (Sur3) also tried it with his 05e3:0503 device and got a seemingly different image format as well. He also took an image that came back from mine and decoded the Bayer colour space, so I can now get images back in colour!

It’s great to see other people getting involved in these efforts, as I will probably not be able to put much time towards this for a while.
