I just hacked together a bunch of GKrellM plugins to display data gathered from the ibm-acpi driver. Data displayed is CPU, GPU, HDD, Mini-PCI, Battery temperature and the fan speed. Every value has it's own plugin, the display is very simple with no config. options.

Download it here: gkibm-acpi-0.1.tar.gz

Many thanks to Brad Davis for gkfreq, my code is totaly based on his plugin!

The Bluetooth StarTrek Communicator

so I finally found some time to write down yet another idea on how to abuse Bluetooth. The idea is fairly simple. Build a system thru which you can use your Bluetooth headset to talk to other people with just the push of a button. BEEP ... Ricker to Pickard

I know you can already do something like this using a WiFi-PDA and VoIP/SIP. The goal here is not having to carry a extra piece of hardware and the ability to do true voice dialing.

Bluetooth Sniper Rifle

John Hering shows you how to build a BlueSniper Rifle. I actually would build one but I don't think its a good idea to point something that looks like a gun at other people since it could easily end in some police action. Which would be very uncool.
