Lots of us use git in a daily basis, myself included. We can say a lot of git, but I would not say that it is intuitive, or that it has nice shortcuts. Similar to what happens with VIM, over the course of some years and some jobs I collected a small list of git configurations that I find very comfortable to work with.
Damn! I failed again, no posts on summer 😀

I was kind of bored while doing some work, and just past week we were discussing with a colleague about my vague-places project.
This project was forgotten in time, but today I’ve blown the dust away, recovered it, and updated the Europe DbPedia map.
Most of you won’t be interested in the full story. So here, see a set of results. If something picks your interest (like, why Portugal has almost no points) just keep reading 😀

For the clock project I require text to appear in a small container, that is 4×4.
Since in this 4×4 I have to add vertical and horizontal spacing this ends with a 3×3 font.
Never in my life I designed a font, and if you check my hand writing… it is horrible. Luckily 3×3 only leads up to 2^9 options, 512 different characters, and I believed I could handle this.
After writing the font in a squared notebook, I checked that other fronts already exist, and, unsurprisingly they were very similar to mine.
Show me your font

Quick note, for those who might be banging their head, like I did.
ST HAL library 7 bit I2C address has to be shifted before passed to their functions.
EDIT: Let me google that for you situation. I’ve been working with the official ST documentation, when I just had to google to find this beautiful blog post from 2 years ago.

Posts come very slowly, but here’s another one.
This post won’t be useful for most people :-(. You know when you use google analytics and get that fantastic map showing where people connect from? Read this, and you will learn how to do it yourself.
Tell me how
