We’ve faced a lot of problems when we tried running our games on different operating systems aside from Ubuntu 8.04. But now, we’re able to run MyMathVentures on both Ubuntu 9.10 and Windows XP. Read the rest of this entry »

9. A lot of new things, still at one… /*Part 1: The Presentation*/

We had our new Imacs just this week. We’re done installing all updates, and the only thing left for us to do is to have the key for VMWare Fusion from Joanne, install Ubuntu 8.04, then we’ll have two units that we can use for our thesis project /*we will still use the old pc…*/. Good timing, we’ve got lots of work to do… Read the rest of this entry »

Here Wii Come

leave a comment »

On the happier side, we already have the Wiimotes!! Hoorayy!!! Finally, we can be able to play with it, experiment and do the things necessary for us to implement our projects. Enthusiasts we were, we tried connecting the wiimote to our machine. We did a lot of downloads and installation of different files and installers, most of them to our disappointment. Nonetheless we found some helpful stuffs, like the WiiRemoteJ API and Avetana for the buletooth connection. We found a simple code that shows the accelerometer of the wiimote working. Note that we are running our project on Ubuntu 8.04. If you have questions on how to connect your wiimotes, you can comment or email directly. So far we are still playing with the wiimote, still unveiling its capabilities. 😀

It was the night that we were all waiting for – thesis making at JRDC with WeRoam by our side.  We were finally able to borrow the WeRoam from Dr. Caro and according to the advertisement made by one of his colleagues as were testing it back at the ITTC, its signal was flawless even if the user was up on the mountains.  But when we were already using it, the signal apparently struggled through the confines of JRDC.  We had to employ the round-robin scheme in order for us to access the internet or else we would just be sharing the single bandwidth we had.

Even before seeing them, I already knew from Joan that we already have our Wiimotes there. I was very excited. “Coding na…”, I said to myself.
