    Re-Thinking (or overthinking) Embedded OOP

    I've been writing some embedded libraries for an ongoing personal project and downshifted to really think about my approach. Particularly, I'm sanity-checking whether an object-oriented implementation for some of this stuff is even a starter, or if my OO approach is worthless. Here's where I'm...

    WatchGuard M370

    I was able to grab one of these in new condition on eBay this morning for less than $30. I anticipate the UTM license is expired for the unit, but I intend to install PFsense anyway.

    Hi all, I’m shopping around for a (preferably compact) WiFi access point that accepts 24V input by either terminal block or barrel connector. Anyone see something like this? While there are plenty of PoE injectors that accept 24V, I’d prefer to avoid the need to carry the extra weight and...

    Oh man, I loved this game. I wanted to continue to play it and its sequel, but EA has shut down the online servers. :( Is the game still capable of doing LAN play? Are there any current LoTR RTS games now or coming? Thanks! :)

    ATH-M50 vendors?

    I'm now wary of ordering these via Amazon as I incorrectly received the straight cabled version, from a listing for the coiled version. Has anyone else got experience ordering the non-S? Which Amazon seller did you use? "The e^Basement" struck out, first swing. Thanks!

    MacBooks and Sandy Bridge discussion

    Sandy Bridge, I think, is going to be the start of a lot of good changes and improvements in mobile computing, especially given the battery discharge figures measured at Anandtech. That was with an early laptop with a quad core running Windows. First off, I'm not convinced that Windows itself is...
