  1. why not try using a GPIO pin to switch the power on/off to the SD card when you aren't accessing it?
  2. @mozobata, Check out the DS28EA00. It has two GPIO ports on it. Bit bang those GPIO pins to create an I2C interface over the One Wire bus. I've done this for a client. It works.
  3. Hi Everybody, I've been developing some code on Linux using CCSV7.2 and I already know that CCS will not program the g2553 like it would on a Windows box. But, I know that you guys are clever! How have you been programming and debugging the g2553 on Linux these days? Are you using a different LaunchPad and hot wiring it over to the G2553 LaunchPad?
  4. @admirlk I'm sorry you are having so many challenges with code composer studio! It has happened to me in the past so I know how you feel. In the event that you do not achieve success tonight then might I suggest that you check out CCS Cloud. Make sure to login with your TI username and password. It will give you an online CCS instance to work in. To debug, install the TICloudAgentBridge in your browser and it's local helper program. I just did that today for my Ubuntu box. It works good. Best of luck!
  5. @makiyang614 I sure am hoping that you meant to say LaunchPad rather than Arduino since this site is dedicated to the TI LaunchPad in its various forms. That said, can you tell us if you are using a TI LaunchPad or an Arduino please?
  6. I didn't even know they existed until I read your post! Maybe I can use a freight forwarding service? Hmmmm....
  7. It even says ZEK on the CC3200! It must be calling me.
  8. By the way, I just looked into the cost of a paid github account and the price is $7/month or $84/year. That gives you unlimited private repo's. Alternatively, gitlab community edition is freely available if you want to self-host. I'm researching this option right now.
  9. Nope, the horse is alive and kicking still. I firmly believe that ideas need to battle other ideas to the death in order for the best idea to survive so it's all good with me. I looked further into the versioning question because it is a valid and intriguing question. I know that I did some rapid save/edits cycles as I edited some graphics files yesterday and this is what I found. Nextcloud has an interesting file structure. The designers decided to separate the current version from the past version by using directories. The current version is in the "../nextcloud/data/zeke/files/" directory while the past versions are located in the "../nextcloud/data/zeke/files_versions/" directory. The past versions are suffixed with a unique identifier. For example, the past versions of my graphics file are named: "../nextcloud/files_versions/zeke/logo.ai.v1492765859" "../nextcloud/files_versions/zeke/logo.ai.v1493766306" The current version is just "../nextcloud/files/zeke/logo.ai" This seems to suggest that there is some way to retrieve an older version of a file but I have not looked into that yet. So to fully answer your question @Rickta59, if I did this: $ for rev in $(seq 1000); do cat /dev/null >reallyimportant.c; echo $rev; sleep 1; done Then I would expect the files_versions directory to start filling up with files named reallyimportant.c.v<nnnnnnnnnn>. How does that sound?
  10. I hear you. I understand. You're right. I appreciate your honesty. Thanks for keeping it real.
  11. I wished that I had the option to recover two months of work that I lost unknowingly. <sad trombone> With this, I will at least have the option as I move forward.
  12. So I have finally got my new file realtime backup system installed and operational. The file server details: OS: Ubuntu 16.04.2 box Storage: 8TB Western Digital Red Software: NextCloud server The client details: Client 1 OS: Win10 Client 2 OS: mac OS Client 3 OS: Ubuntu 16.04.2 Desktop Software: NextCloud client on each Usage: Using NextCloud Client, sign into the Server Select local directory you want to backup Add it to the Server Stand back and it will copy everything over to the server automatically I have observed that if you create a new file in the local monitored directory then the NextCloud Client will almost immediately copy it over to the Server without your interaction. I like that. If desired, you can setup another client machine and get it to replicate a files from the server to itself locally. Multiple redundancy. So far, this system has transferred over 110GB to the server unattended. This configuration will backup files that I generate on a regular basis. Now, I want to setup git and subversion on this same server so that I can take care of files generated during software coding (git) or hardware design files generated by Altium (SVN). So far, I like NextCloud and it fits my work processes.
  13. @yyrkoon Sometimes, when I feel like you do, I go an have a nap until they get off my lawn. ;-) Don't stop helping us understand stuff. You are awesome Dude. !
  14. This is my schematic for a typical msp430 programming setup. Notice the resistor and capacitor on the SBWTDIO line? Compare that to your schematic. What do you see?
