Hi, I’m Ben Papacek - a software developer from Sydney.
Recently I came across this article, titled 'Soft material for soft actuators'. I tried to reproduce it but couldn't, think I got the wrong kind of silicon.
Yesterday went for a walk near Leura with friends from work, added some photos.
Lately I've been trying to work out how to use session-scoped beans in Spring properly. I think for what I want I need to set
ScopedProxyMode.TARGET_CLASSas described here. Still having some issues with it, but hopefully will get there.
Went for a hike near Springwood today, but forgot the SIM card for my camera so no photos. It was a very hot day but the track was great, I want to do it again.
Added photos from a walk in the Blue Mountains.
Redeployed this yesterday for the first time in a long time. Also fixed up the nginx configuration.
Tank Game 2.0, now uses tilt for directional control.
Oops, accidentally let the SSL certificate expire. There was supposed to be a cron task updating it, but didn't work. Have to look into it.
Helicopter Game 2.3. Added some round launcher icons for Android 7.1, forgot about that in the last one.
Uploaded Helicopter Game 2.2 release. Fixed the rendering bug, seems like it was specific to Android Nougat (API 24+). Also got rid of yaw control (swipe left/right), didn't like it much.
New blog post on setting up UART between a Raspberry Pi Zero and a Microchip PIC.
