Edx free programming course

This one is free for all! With or without knowledge in computers might enjoy this, like me who does not have a foundation in programming will like this to be a start-up. It will start in Januar 1, 2014 so better sign up quickly if you would like to learn new idea and knowledge about computer programming. The pre-requisite is none so it will be friendly to us without knowledge in programming language.

Learning computer programming is like freedom of how would you like your computer behaves, you are the master of your chip slave and not the slave of others commands. While I have difficulty learning how to program, reading many open source codes can help you understand how computer will do if those codes where activated. Open source also helps the world move fast in everyday computing, it's collaboration and openness makes it easier to solve and make projects possible. I really wanted to contribute to this idea but since I still don't have that master programming skills so in support with them I used them everyday and promote them to all of my friends and family. That's the least thing I can do for now to the open source community.

Another good Linux distro for beginners

Manjaro First Boot

Manjaro First Boot

Manjaro Linux is a new to me, but it's base Arch Linux is not. I haven't tried Arch Linux though but this rolling distro is very easy to install unlike Arch Linux, it is a complete package like PCLINUXOS but a little faster. I used it in playing facebook flash games like marvel alliance and mafia wars and it does faster than other linux distro. What I like in rolling release is that even years of using them you don't need to reformat and re-install the linux distro for something like 6 months and that is really hassle free from a beginner in linux.

Raspberry Pi powered by 4 AA eneloop rechargeable battery

I have to get a new pair of DC jack for final wirings

I have to get a new pair of DC jack for final wirings

Portable power supply to a portable computer is a must.. Luckily I have an extra collection of eneloop batteries for my Maglite flashlights and I have planned to add more for Pi´s. I use a multimeter and I got about 5.45 volt reading from series connection of eneloop and 5.30 amps of current fully charged which is suitable for a portable power supply. AA Eneloop battery is only 1.2 volts and 1900mA so you will need at least 4 of them in a battery pack to get the 5 volt power requirements of Raspberry Pi while the current will help the usage hours of the tiny computer.
