Hi, I’m Ben Papacek - a software developer from Sydney.
New blog post on setting up UART between a Raspberry Pi Zero and a Microchip PIC.
My 3D printer is fixed now! I've been playing round with OpenSCAD.
Added new web versions of the 3D Globe projects (Mars 3D, Moon 3D and Earth 3D). The existing Android apps were made with JME3, the new web versions use BabylonJS WebGL framework. Still plan to add zoom, maybe also try to incorporate touch/swipe events for mobile devices.
Got a bit over-ambitious with the header image, didn't take server load time into account when testing locally. Reduced image size and added a background colour, bit better now.
Tried to simplify and prettify things a bit, added a new header image. It's a shot of the Brisbane skyline at night from Mt Coot-tha. I got it from Wikipedia Commons.
Last few weeks I've been refining some bash scripts so I can set up a new cloud server whenever I need to.
I worked out the nginx SSL stuff, so now this is all going through an nginx reverse proxy. Whoa...
New blog post on setting up OS X dev environment, for when I mess it up. Again.
Did a bit more on Helicopter Game (WebGL). The random number generator is now seeded with the date, meaning new scenery each day.
Today I uploaded a new version of Crossword Helper, my first Android app. Updated the word list, among other things.
Short post on plotting latitude/longitude coordinates on a sphere for the three 'Globe 3D' android apps.
