Gotta give a quick shoutout here to the libusbx project: http://libusbx.org/
I've never done any usb intensive work before, but when it came time to communicate directly with an ANT+ USBStick2 device we needed a solution that worked equally well on the big 3 desktop platforms (Windows, OSX, linux flavors). Libusbx to the rescue, and within a few days we had a solution that worked everywhere. Even managed to figure out the asynchronous transfers.

So you like using Instantbird because it's great, and you like using ZNC to manage your IRC connections? Turns out with the latest Instantbird (1.3) you need to go through some extra steps to be able to log into your ZNC server with a username and password.
This took a bit of research to figure out, so might as well share with the world:

After learning that ANT+ busting is anything but routine on Android and iOS devices (with dongle), we finally pushed out the latest Qalvin beta for testing. If all goes well, updates should hit the App stores in short order!

Just pushed a quick update to the ios-cmake toolchain project:
Now the iOS.cmake toolchain will search for all versions of Xcode: both 4.3 and older. It will choose the most recent unless manually set with CMAKE_IOS_DEVELOPER_ROOT. So users may run this toolchain with an older Xcode while on OSX Lion.

Just a quick note that we updated our ios-cmake project on google code to reflect changes in Xcode 4.3, mainly to deal with the new pathing apple switched to. (No more /Developer directory). http://code.google.com/p/ios-cmake
Opening the latest Xcode projects also requires a cmake patch, at least until 2.8.8 comes out. You can grab that here: https://github.com/mxcl/homebrew/pull/10640

One of our most popular code requests is a look at how we build toadlet for iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPodtouch) using cmake. While we currently have a solution posted in the toadlet source prerelease on google code (http://code.google.com/p/toadlet), it is non optimal and has been replaced in the current toadet tree. Which is not yet on google code. Because we are swamped with work right now.

NOTE: This toolchain file has been superseded by our own ios-cmake project. Check here for details: http://www.ltengsoft.com/node/21
After almost a solid day of work, we've managed to put together a new CMake toolchain file for iOS 4.3 that builds toadlet for either iOS Devices or any of the iPhone/iPad Simulators, all from the same project.

Our private mercurial repository server is back online. We've got a fresh look for the interface, and now provide RSS/Atom feeds for each of the projects. Thanks to Mercurial's slick hgweb scripts, uwsgi, and of course the mighty NGINX websever!

Just finished wrapping up the html help documentation for Quarq Technology's new Qalvin application. When I had to change a whole pile of image sizes and colorspaces for better formatting, the ImageMagick tool proved to be a godsend.
A shot each of "mogrify -resize" and "mogrify -colors" later, my entire document is up to date. I love the command line; thanks ImageMagick! http://www.imagemagick.org

After over 1/2 a days worth of work, we've updated both of our sites to use Drupal 7. Overall the process was pretty painless thanks to the detailed upgrade guides on http://drupal.org. Only some minor theme tweaks were needed.
However there are almost always lose ends after a major event like this. If you see anything out of wack, please contact us right away or just tweet it on over. We appreciate any feedback!
