Really not much here, but this is better than looking at a directory listing, isn't it...
So what is here? -->
This usb soundcard claims to do S/PDIF output, looking into how to do it w/ Linux.
I'm currently working on a check printing application for Linux, tentatively called "FreeCheck" (ugh... if you have a better name, let me know...). The first thing I had to do was create a freely distributable MICR (Magnetic Ink Character Recognition) font for the funny-looking line at the bottom of the check. That's done - it's called "GnuMICR" and it's here.
I also have a Perl script going that will generate a check based on a config file. This is the actual "FreeCheck" program. You can get it here, and there's a demo of the web interface here. I'm planning on doing a Gnome and/or GTK interface around it as well.
You'll need a PostScript printer, or GhostScript to use the script - it generates PostScript. GhostScript 6.01 does an excellent job of converting PostScript to PDF though, so that makes things nice and portable.
I've done a little bit of work on audio drivers for the Linux bttv driver. There may or may not be a newer version of the tda7432 driver here. I've also written the BTTV HOWTO, but it's hosted at www.linuxdoc.org, not here... if I start doing another draft when the 2.4 kernel comes out, drafts will probably be here.
Well, some drunk girl ran a red light and smashed my Pathfinder. Barbara convinced me that we needed a sedan, so we got a used Passat. It's pretty sweet... gotta love that german engineering.
The only other fun things here are some pictures of a raccoon that was breaking into our house through the cat door. I set up an infrared ligt source and some motion detection software, and took some pictures with the webcam. Barb says "What are you gonna do, take it to court?!" Oh well... it was fun. :)
Well, I don't use it anymore....
