Chinese Xbox wireless receiver title.

Wireless Receiver for the Xbox 360 from China has arrived.

Wireless Receiver for my Xbox 360 controller (Sometimes referred to as a wireless dongle) from China is one of those tools that has become more and more relevant in the gaming industry with console ports and couch co-ops. And unlike other types of electronics from China where it was inferior or simply was nothing more then a piece of plastic or an identifier chip saying what it was but it really did nothing at all. This adapter from china actually does work! But it needs the right drivers!

AirPlay on my Raspberry Pi

AirPlay on Raspberry Pi - Title.

AirPlay audio only on the Raspberry Pi

Airplay¬†(or in previous revisions from apple this protocol was called “AirTunes”) audio is the ability to transmit audio from your smart phone device (The Apple I-phone does this natively and android users can actually download a plugin protocol for this) to another device which is hooked to a home stereo system. I know there’s countless of articles talking about how it’s done. But since this is my blog I sometimes use my blog as just a random dump on how I get things going so in case I forget with my countless other projects I don’t have to look for a particular site to show me how to get it working again. It’s just annoying to find a site that talks about it just to have it disappear on you. So! Without further delay, my short little guide on how it is done.

What better way to do this then to keep it on something low-powered like a Raspberry Pi?

It appears that some people were interested more in how to extract characters from StepMania in order to understand how the process works.
