Using Raspberry Pi for
your IoT experiments - a given.
Like the white hair on my head.
Many don’t realize the real threat it poses these days to security.
There have been many reports of IoT devices being hijacked.
And then used for malicious purposes. Like peeping into your
drawer. Even worst looking into your code.
I don’t want people to know how many cockroaches
and worms lie hidden in my old code. ;-)
Well, instead of loosing your night’s sleep read this.
This started a quest to design the perfect cycle delay
for one of my favorite MCUs the STM8.
In the process I learned a lot about custom pipeline and execution of in
proprietary MCU such as

Many of us Windows users try to have Visual Studio environment.
But that’s not always great option. Unless you are ready to download 8GB
on your internet bandwidth.
I personally like Visual Studio and its fast upcoming cousin
VS Code. But hate the large download part.
Hence an opensource alternative is a need of the hour.
Also if you like to compile
linuxy style code with
Makefile in all its
MinGW64 at your service friend!
It has been long time since I worked on ESP8266 and that too native SDK from Esperssif.
With the rusty know-how and lack on info online, I had a mixed start again.
Hope that the experience shared here might be helpful for many users,
who wish to do ESP8266 native SDK development on Windows Platform.
But are afraid that most of the working tools for ESP8266 are linux friendly.
Not to worry you are in good company.
Working with DietPi, we found going back and forth between
the Raspberry Pi and PC very time consuming.
Fortunately DietPi provides a PC distribution
with x86_x64 configuration.
Though they had both VM Ware and Virtual Box
files but they did not work for us.
So we decided to download the
Native PC for BIOS/CSM (BETA) option.
We later found out this is just a
we could not directly use it with Virtual Box
There is always a need to add multiple dimensions and units to dimensions
while doing PCB Assembly.
The process of doing so in Orcad 17.2 is quite tricky.
Its common that one needs to use a programmer from the Arduino IDE, but on
Windows 10 things are not as simple. Many times the drivers installed are not
correct hence the
avrdude tool in the Arduino IDE refuses to work.
This problem specifically occurs with Lenovo laptops and more pounced in *Ubuntu 17.x” onwards.
The problem happens when the laptop goes to any type of standby , sleep or hybrid-sleep.
It causes the WiFi the not function again after wakeup.
Many times we need a reliable way to infer the data hidden into the Barcode.
In the modern days is the time for QR-Code.
This is a brief guide to using OpenOCD on Windows and linux.
