Programming the iCE40HX1K-EVB FPGA with a Bus Pirate

I've posted a new article on my website: my first experiences, and an howto for my specific set of hardware (iCE40HX1K-EVB and a Bus Pirate as an SPI programmer).

In Italia esistono tante realtà che si occupano di cultura e libertà digitali, sotto molti aspetti ed in molti modi. Scopo di MERGE-it è riunirle insieme, per conoscersi e farsi conoscere, discutere e dibattere, confrontarsi e misurarsi.

Debian SnowCamp @ Laveno (VA), Italy

Super impressed by ArgBash, a library for generating code to parse command line arguments in #bash. Well written, easy to use, and generates very correct code that handles nearly any kind of argument your script might need. Came in handy today.

A friend is working on a piece of Free Hardware for easy flashing a coreboot or libreboot laptop. He's doing an ad-hoc crowdfunding campaign until December 1st. If you think this is cool and have some bucks for the fundraiser, please get in touch with him!

Dear Folks! Zerocat’s Chipflasher applies for FSF’s Respects-Your-Freedom Certificate. As we received feedback recently, the Chipflasher is on the right way to go, however some features and fixes must be updated to get through the certification process...

Call for Crowdfunding

Let’s create trustworthy hardware on our own, the free-design Propeller microchip empowers us to do so! When it comes to flash a coreboot or libreboot laptop, we are now using Zerocat’s free-design chipflasher as part of a quite clean & free toolchain. Commonly used flashers like the Beagle Bone Black or Raspberry Pi with chips of a proprietary...

Debian Day in Varese


The decorations *may* have been changed a bit from the way they originally came from the restaurant kitchen... :D

I’m Tomu, a tiny ARM microprocessor which fits in your USB port. I have two buttons and two LEDs! I’m fully open source, have a BOM of ~$10 (in individual quantities) and am constructable by hobbyists! Designed for 2-factor authentication or anything else you can think of.

Debian Day in Varese

I'm stuck home instead of being able to go to DebConf, but that doesn't mean that Debian Day will be left uncelebrated!

Since many of the locals are away for the holidays, we of @Gruppo Linux Como and @LIFO aren't going to organize a full day of celebrations, but at the very least we are meeting for a dinner in Varese, at some restaurant that will be open on that date.

Everybody is welcome: to join us please add your name (nickname or identifier of any kind, as long as it fits in the box) on before thursday, August 10th, so that we can
get a reservation at the restaurant.
