What have I been reading this week? (20160612)

Missed posting last week due to having to (yet again) rebuild the Frankenbox. It's up and running (somewhat) with a super-powered CPU (4+ GHz!) and an ancient video card. Many thanks to friends for donating parts from their junk boxes. I'm glad that the old Frankenbox waited until after the end of the embedded programming course before it fell over.

The RPi3 review is almost done. I've completed the portions for Docker, the Jabber/IRC bridge and the home-grown, Liquidsoap/Icecast-based jukebox. Hopefully I'll have the tuner/streamer notes finished this week so that I can start another project before the summer class craziness starts.

The world is just a bit emptier as Christina is now missing from it. If you've ever enjoyed her music, please consider helping her family.

From the past two weeks...
