My UDOO Bolt and accessories came from Italy, and it arrived much faster than I expected it would. It was about six days in total. Of course, it took UPS another week to actually deliver it to me and I had to blast them on Twitter to get that.


The house internet has been working quite well lately, so I am finally able to stream some 4K content. I must say, WOW!

I am getting deeper into working on #Circuitpython stuff now. I am in the process of adding the UDOO Bolt to Blinka, which is the Circuitpython compatibility layer for Linux. This is my most complex change so far, which requires extensive changes to two repos.

Charlie is easy. I just have to give her more snuggles and belly rubs. :)

Just because we can do it does not mean we should do it.

I had my first sleep study last night and am back home with Charlie now. Now, I have to wait for seven to ten business days to get the results and find out how to proceed from there. I know these studies will show something and I have already been diagnosed with Obstructional Sleep Apnea.

Have you been diagnosed? If not, why not? I am having a sleep study on the 20th, which will be the last thing that needs to be done before I can be fully diagnosed and get a machine to use during sleep periods. I have been timed at up to 30 seconds without breathing.


Oh my, so funny! This one snuck up on me!

I now have a complete UDOO Bolt computer with 32GB RAM, a 1TB NVMe m.2 SSD, dual-band WiFi, and Bluetooth 4.2. I did take a few pictures of the assembly process, but I need to get a few of the finished box before I can post them.

Hey, I found a way that I can deal with those small u.FL/mcx connectors! I just place the board on my table, position the connector at the right place, and then press down gently with my pliers. The antenna connectors snap right in!
