Ok for me this is off topic but it is something that I am meddling about with. I picked up a dead Blu-ray player with no drive, but it does have a nice RJ-45 and an internal WiFi transceiver sticking out of the back, and a neet black front panel. Now as it happens the thing also is written in Java. THE PLAN: is to make it see my NFS mounted library, and to play them like locally mounted media. THE ANALYSIS: I have included my configuration, see the table below. Checking around I found out th ...
The RSS has been well sort of like a trial by fire. Well to put it bluntly it was nuts, with too many moving parts.!! Sort of like an old Rube Goldberg Machine. What I needed was a better way. Enter Java. Java has been around for more than a decade by now, it 'is concurrent, class-based, object-oriented, and specifically designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible' - Wikipedia. When It was first introduced I grabbed a book, and I liked what I saw, and over the years writing ...

I'm sorry for this post at this time there is no rime or reason for it but I just got a Cessna 402 fuse panel, cheap or about 50 cents a breaker. So I'm going to regress just a little. First, all good simulators need fuse panels. Having said that, they may be there maybe not, mostly for dress or doing the work. But a simulator is also for training pilots right? So how in the world do you simulate a failure? And what is the pilot's response? Think about it (none or by some keyboard input). Solu ...

I was going to use my Suncom F-18 Tallon Joystick but I had an F-18 Joystick from High Rev Simulations. They over-built stuff, now DOA, but Bugeye Technologies can help you. The switches are all Military quality made by Otto Controls. The Joystick base has a Hall Effect sensors for Roll and Pitch axises.

  Well, here I am again so let you all in whats really going on. I need a dual Throttle Quadrant. As I have said before I have 2 of them.   So here is the PLAN: Now I distrust USB as when it fails you cant trust the configurations anymore.  So I will communicate via RS-485 between Arduinos, with the master node, using NASA's EADIN Lite Protocol. having an Ethernet interface, to talk to the simulator. So far I have 3 nodes: Master: runs joystick and talks to the simulator vi ...
set up a new workstation in my living room dinning table. I am getting frustrated with Mint-Cinnamon So I loaded Ubuntu  but I did not there shell so Installed Cinnamon on top of it. And that just was never meant to be. So after a few months, I to try Debian 9.1 with Cinnamon (distro). Installer Grief You can not install from the Live-CD (DVD) Shell/GUI You can not run fsck as it's not there!! If you don't have a DHCP network you have problems. (It can't download the libraries.) And you ...
Well here I am again so let you all in whats really going on. Part 1, consider it a preamble.   Goal: requirements ie Start of the Plan.   Requirements Control Command_Name (variable) Channel Number Digital Ports Header 5 Header 6 Arduino mega for hardware (this gives me 16 analog inputs) Use CAN bus for communications Use big joystick for the software. and modify it to work with more analog inputs, communication via CAN bus versus USB which has its share of problems ...
What have I done? It seems that I have created a monster. Originally, when I started with this undertaking, I made first of several statements, and they are worth repeating.http://www.phoenixcomm.net/~phnx2000/sim/software.shtml No KeyBoard encoders. Must use standard equipment protocols. AIRINC-410, ARINC-429, MIL-1553, etc. Must be able to support x-number of crew stations. ie. P51, 747, L1011, B-52, Starship Enterprise, or naval craft's: CICS bridge, etc. If you wish to read my diatrib ...
NexGen: Hacking a Sitek X-35 Joystick.Converting the Game Port to USB - Part 1    THE ANALYSIS:   - Disassemble the unit, and give them a bath, but if your handles turned gummy, I used "Brake Clean" in the Red Can. You will need some elbow grease as well. The GamePort cable has these 15 wires: black, white, red, purple, pink, green, light green, yellow, brown-white, black-white, black (dull, thick), orange, gray, red-white, blue. - Identify the wires. You should ring them out ...
The ID-453/ARN-30 is a Vietnam era CDI. The connector on the rear is an ARC 19 pin. Well here I'm going to do this from memory as this indicator has been already been taken apart. So let begin.   Analysis: As you can see there are 2 pointers (Vertical and Horizontal pointers) and 2 flags (Vertical and Horizontal pointers) as well as the T0-FROM meter and a resolver, but let's just talk about the first five. They really are the same, just a D’Arsonval Meter Movements, and they can ...
