Okay it seems to work now. The problem looks like being I "shut down" the pi by just pulling the cord quite a lot. Just using the shutdown command (as I should) makes it work fine.
(sorry for double post)

Well I the reason I bought this clock is that the Pi will not have internet so it will loose track of the time. We get around it now by manually setting the correct time and then continuing with what needs to be done (still a lot easier than just setting time on the pi imo :P ) so that won't be an option sadly.

Taking out the battery and reinserting it resets the clock to November 30, 1990 so it most likely does use it to keep its time.

Hello guys, it's been some time :) I'm no longer doing much with calculators, but I'm still programming quite a lot. Currently I'm building a telescope with some  class mates and I'm writing the software for its control. We use a Pi B+ to manage everything but since it doesn't have its own clock I figured I'd buy an RTC module. The project is almost due though so getting the Adafruit one for the Pi would have taken too long so I bought one at a local store, a DS1302 (, sorry for the dutch). It's originally for the Arduino I believe, but I followed this guide to use it with my Pi:

It now works in the sense that I can set the time and read from it, but I've encountered a major problem: the clock doesn't seem to "tick" when unplugged from the Pi. It remembers the time it had before disconnecting though, so I don't believe the battery is dead. In the datasheet I found I found something about a clock halt flag, but I'm not sure if that's it or how to fix it.

Is anyone familiar with this (type of) clock and could help me fix it? It would greatly ease the user experience :)

TI Calculators / Re: Need help with ti nspire CX CAS 3.9 os downgrade

I haven't really kept up with the latest ndless news, but iirc if your calc is of hardware revision greater than J (the letter at the end of the code) there is no way to get a 3.9 calc to accept any lower OS as somewhat explained here.

I haven't looked at it yet, but I just read a short piece about Sidonia no Kishi (Knights of Sidonia). It looks pretty cool to me. The manga is still going and the anime just finished it's first season, with a second one in the making.

Here's a video as you asked. See how I suck at it too. :P

Wats open on your monitor?

It looks like a firefox window with the console thing (F12) open.

On-topic: That looks really nice, especially with such good speed :)
* ElementCoder should order a new battery for his CX

I can actually tell a story about something like that. My grandpa owns a camcorder (really cheap crap) and I tried to change some settings as the pictures and videos were really awful. So I tried to change the resolution and other properties, which is called "Bildformat" in German.
Now in the main menu there was an option called "Format". I assumed it's the "Bildformat" and clicked on it. And no, it wasn't. SD card empty, photos of a full year lost, without any backups  >:(
Aww that really sucks :( They really should make those options hard to access to avoid these kind of accidents.

Nice camera you got there :) It's really surprising how everything gets more and more features nowadays. Good to see it can do all those things as well :)

That would be epic indeed. It seems to have something to do with the stream itself e.g. opening a surround stream on a stereo device won't work.
I don't know what could be wrong though. Could you maybe paste your script?

That seems like the kHz setting to me. Have you tried setting it to 16000? That's all I can think of. What are you trying to make btw, a secure Skype clone? :P
j/k really though, what are you making? :)
