Just a real quick update about the project. Continue reading Homemade DIY word clock – A quick update
I have taken apart several old computers this weekend and so I had several old PSU laying around afterwards. I opened one up that was known to be faulty, that’s why I got the computer for free. So I took a quick look inside and several caps were leaking. I decided not to throw it away, instead I repaired the PSU and gave the internals a new life. I actually had this idea years ago but I didn’t have a spare PSU I could take apart. Here is a rough guide on how to build your own power supply for almost no cost at all!

Some time ago I wrote an article about how to get started with Windows 10 App development. This article will introduce you to Mac-Apps and will guide you through the process of programming one with Xamarin and C#.
Easy to follow video included at the end of the article.
This is the last revision I’m going to post before I completely finish the post. It has all the features I wanted and defined in the first part, and it’s as easy to manufacture and to build as possible. So this is just a really short and quick update with the newest files for editing and printing. Continue reading Homemade DIY word clock – Part 3.1
In this part I’ll discuss the code, needed to set and read the current time from the RTC and to control the individual LEDs on the LED matrix:
An update on the project
It’s been a while since I posted something about the wordclock build. I want to apologise for that. I’ve been somewhat busy because of the university and I haven’t quite found the time to write about the project. Also it took me some tries to make the PCB at home. It took five tries until I was satisfied with the outcome.
In this article I’ll take a look at how to write Windows 10 apps and I’ll guide you through the steps you’ll have to take to create a runnable ‘Hello World’ example app.
Please note, that this will not be a programming tutorial. We have written one here. Our programming tutorial series is written for Java, however C# is very similar to Java. This article should just give you a quick overview on how to write an app for Windows 10. Continue reading Windows 10 apps in C# – Hello World Tutorial
