Adding a battery buffered realtime clock to the Beaglebone Black provides accurate time when no Internet is available. I used an Epson RX8025NB module, and connected it to I2C bus 1. Under Ubuntu 14.04 LTS a set of rtc drivers already exists, and enabling the clock was a simple command. The biggest work was to enable I2C bus 1 on pins P9-17 and 18, and for battery charge protection, soldering the tiny 2mm schottky diodes (SOD-323) into place.

After upgrading to Windows 10, the new Edge browser has another render engine that displays web pages “differently”, and breaks the page layout. Below is the error shown a pixel-aligned comparison screenshot of an application page, displayed side-by-side in Microsoft Edge and Microsoft Internet Explorer 11.

P.S.: Take a closer look at Google Advertising. Not Photoshop inserted – With unmatched irony and perfect timing, Google AdSense really used that exact moment to promote Chrome.

P.P.S: The problem is caused by nesting tables. Fix: Hardcoding the nested table size, setting the width in pixels fixed it temporarily.

Same as in previous years, 2016 Sakura had its share of rainy days, especially on weekends. Finally, temperatures rose and the rain is over.
