Load Android on your junk PC

Interesting Open Source project. http://www.android-x86.org/

Description from the project website

A few months after we created the project, we found out that we could do much more than just hosting patches. So we decide to create our code base to provide support on different x86 platforms, and set up a git server to host it. This is an open source project licensed under Apache Public License 2.0.

I loaded it into a virtual machine. It runs.


ALC Maker’s Space is coming

Abundant Life Church is starting a new thing called Groups which will each be on a secular topic of interest to those who participate, and will meet in lieu of the traditional Wednesday evening Bible Study service. (Typical groups last time were Finances, Cropping for Christ, & Shooting and Firearm Safety.  My church is kinda crazy like that) The point is to involve the wider community, not just church members. There will still be a small group meeting Wednesday evenings at ALC for those who don’t have an interest in anything.

Anyway, due to some temporary lapse in sanity, ALC has actually approved yours truly to sponsor one of those groups. I submitted our description as follows. I’ll post start details & dates for any interested once I have them. This is for makers and minions.


 

Made in the Image of God, we are Creators! For people who make things out of micro controllers, electronics, leather, wood, and steel. That’s not a junk TV, it’s a parts bonanza!

A Maker’s Space, we gather to share and discuss technology ideas, cool things to make, and learn and see what each other has been building. In the event of fire or explosion the church has insurance.

My initial thoughts are interesting projects such as wireless electronic signs, quadrocopters, furnace controls, and performance art lighting, using TI Launchpads, Arduino, and Raspberry Pi micro controllers, but anything goes. Just have to see what awesome ideas people have when they come.

Coffee, fellowship, Windoze & Linux workstations, & an ugly but indestructible work bench provided. I have some proto-boards. Lots of junk box parts. Room full of electronics upstairs that we need to empty anyway. Meets weekly in the Community & Bridge rooms. Steam punk garb optional.

P.S. We will start each session with coffee and prayer. “Sweet Jesus! Why did I make that!” is probably not what we want to pray.


But then there is the user

Security never relies on some algorithm, but on the user comprehending the principles and acting sanely. Usually there is a chain of security and every link must be kept secure on its own, for the whole concept to work. Therefore every encryption method has some immanent weaknesses which once met, define a method as considerably secure. But then there is the user…
