  1. Debian on a synthesizer

    Bela is a low latency optimized platform for audio applications built using Debian and Xenomai, running on a BeagleBoard Black.

  2. I am sorry, but this looks insane

    I am a console user. I really just started to use X11 again about two weeks ago, to sometimes test an a Qt application I am developing. I am not using Firefox or anything similar, all my daily work happens in shells and inside of emacs, in a console, not …

  3. Why is Qt5 not displaying Braille?

    While evaluating the cross-platform accessibility of Qt5, I stumbled across this deficiency:

    #include <QApplication>
    #include <QTextEdit>
    int main(int argv, char **args)
      QApplication app(argv, args);
      QTextEdit textEdit;
      return app.exec();

    (compile with -std=c++11).

    On my system, this "application" does not show …

    Since 2009, I am persuing a personal programming project. As I am not a professional programmer, I have spent quite a lot of that time exploring options.

    I recently ranted about my frustration with GStreamer in a SoundCloud command-line client written in Ruby.

  7. Mixing vinyl again

    The turntables have me back, after quite some long-term mixing break.

    I used to do straight 4-to-the-floor, mostly acid or hardtek. You can find an old mix of mine on SoundCloud. This one is actually back from 2006.

  8. Living in RAM

    I switched to SSD on my home server a few years ago, at a time when SSH was still new and sort of hyped. However, I immediately knew that this type of technology is for me: it is fast and rather silent.
