Introducing engineering.pebble.com

"Today’s Pebble smartwatches have about 1/8000th the RAM, 1/100th the CPU frequency, and 1/10th the battery capacity of cell phones1. Hence, Pebble’s software engineering team is used to operating in highly constrained environments. "

Over the last couple of weeks we have been working on a new JavaScript SDK, Rocky.js. The end goal of Rocky.js is to allow you to run JavaScript code directly on your watch. But in order to iterate quickly and collect feedback from the community, we first decided to offer a version of Rocky.js …

The Amazing Doctor Nim DIY

Surprising exactly no one who knows me I am now figuring out how to make the Doctor Nim game mentioned in a previous post.
By figuring out I mean first diving thru the intertubes for docs, how tos and already completed projects . Failing that it is down to gathering any info and hitting the CAD to eventually 3d print up the geewgaws and suchasits.

A good sign was finding this in very short order…. http://www.cs.miami.edu/home/burt/learning/Csc427.152/491_Dr-Nim-Manual5b15d.pdf

"Do I Really Look Like A Guy With A Plan?"

"Do I Really Look Like A Guy With A Plan?"

"Do I Really Look Like A Guy With A Plan?"

"You know what I am? I’m a dog chasing cars. I wouldn’t know what to do with one if I caught it. You know, I just do things. The Mob has plans, the cops have plans, Gordon’s got plans. You know, they’re schemers. Schemers trying to control their little worlds. I’m not a schemer. I try to show the schemers how pathetic their attempts to control things really are. So when I say that you and your girlfriend was nothing personal, you know that I’m telling the truth. It’s the schemers that put you where you are. You were a schemer, you had plans, and look where that got you. I just did what I do best. I took your little plan and I turned it on itself. Look what I did to this city with a few drums of gas and a couple of bullets. Hm? You know what I noticed? Nobody panics when things go “according to plan.” Even if the plan is horrifying. If tomorrow I tell the press that like a gangbanger will get shot, or a truckload of soldiers will be blowing up, nobody panics because it’s all “part of the plan.” But when I say that one little old mayor will die, well then everyone loses their minds! Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos. I’m an agent of chaos. Oh, and you know the thing about chaos, it’s fair." Mr. J
