  1. Decoding temperature data logger files

    At work, we recently bought an EBI 40 TC-01 6-channel temperature logger. It saves data in a file with the ed3 extension. It comes with a ms-windows program to show the data and export to CSV and ms-excel.

    However, I want to be able to use the data on my FreeBSD workstation. So I have to figure out the data format of the ed3 files.

  2. Building an epub from a single ReStructuredText file

    The sphinx documentation generator is a an excellent tool. It was written to generate documentation for Python, but is used by many other projects as well. Its source format is ReStructuredText.

    These webpages are written in ReStructuredText as well, and I also use this format for other bits and pieces. On occasion, I want to convert a single ReStructuredText file to an epub. This article documents how to do that.

  3. Windows 8: the infinite yak-shaving

    So I got a call from a friend who’s ms-windows 8 laptop was wedged.

    Having set the machine up for him, I felt obliged to help, even though troubleshooting ms-windows ranks pretty on the bottom my list of favorite activities.
