Use the Wii Nunchuck as a MIDI controller

 

Some weeks ago Wolfgang Gaube (a composer, musician and and sound designer) wrote me an email asking me, because I had some experience with the Wii and MIDI, whether it would be possible to use the Wii Nunchuck as a MIDI controller (hardware or software which generates and transmits MIDI data to MIDI-enabled devices). That's how our cooperation started, we exchanged gear and setup details and started to work. Some research, scripting, trail and error resulted in a slick script for GlovePie...

Cleaning phone numbers in Excel or OO Spreadsheet

 

Personally I've been using Excel for storing phone numbers for more than ten years now. Every now and then I don't recognize the phone number so I need to search in my Excel sheet looking up who called me.

Convert MAC address in MS Excel or OO Spreadsheet

 

As I'm currently working a lot with Excel, I get a lot of questions like "How do I do this?" or "How do I do that?". Yesterday someone asked me how to convert a data string to a MAC address. The standard format for printing MAC addresses in human-friendly form is six groups of two hexadecimal digits, separated by hyphens (-) or colons (:), in transmission order, e.g. 01-23-45-67-89-ab, 01:23:45:67:89:ab. In this article I'll give you examples of how to add, remove or change the separator for MAC addresses in MS Excel or OO Spreadsheet.

FON 2200 having a blinking power LED

 

A few months ago I wasn't able to connect to the FON network. Being a Fonero I logged on at the FON website and noticed the following message at my personal page "Your roaming privileges are temporally put on hold". My FON router (a FON2200) did not appear to be online!? When I got home I noticed just one sad blinking power LED, instead of three happy blinking LEDs (power, Internet and wlan)... I tried to reset my FON router, disconnected it from the power supply, I even tried magical spells, etc. but that didn't help at all. As a last resort I contacted the FON support team, they told me my device was broken and needed to be replaced. They were really nice and even offered me a discount if I wanted to buy a new router. I love the concept of FON but was discouraged by the prize of the new router, so I waited...
