LDAP Alfresco (global properties)

I found this useful so I thought I’d post it

Open Source OBD Information
Date Created: May 12, 2013  Date Modified: May 13, 2013

Its not hard to tell that I’m a bit of a car buff, add to that my love of tech and you get this headache related to the on board diagnosis port (“ODB” or “ODB-II”, the second generation of diagnosis ports). Mechanics can invest in the expensive tools required to “communicate” with the ECU as an operational expense, however the general automotive enthusiast can’t really justify that cost–especially if you own vehicles from different car manufacturers.

There are cheap consumer level tools to perform some of the OBD functions, tho they have their limitations, such as working only with certain marques, or having no upgrade-ability–An open source solution would be better. In an ideal world there would be a huge open source community deving tools we can all use to aid us in automotive maintenance, but there are only a handful of dedicated individuals working on these projects.

This post is to put together some of the existing online resources related to OBD, it’s by no means an authoritative source on how to use, make or develop these tools.

FreeDiag,

From their website: “Freediag is a suite of vehicle diagnostic protocols and an OBD II (mostly) compliant ScanTool, currently for Linux platforms. Multiple graphical user interfaces for scantool are under development – but right now, you have to use a command-line interface to scantool.”. Currently not available on windows.
Homepage: http://freediag.sourceforge.net/
Project: http://sourceforge.net/projects/freediag/

openOBD: OBD-II Scan Tool

OpenOBD is no longer in active development, but it does have a windows installer for those users not on a linux platform. According to the projects wiki it only supports the ELM327 device.
Homepage: https://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/openobd/index.php?title=OpenOBD
Project: https://sourceforge.net/projects/openobd/

OBDToolbox

OBDToolbox is in early development so its features are a bit limited. Windows installer available.
Homepage: http://obdtoolbox.sourceforge.net/
Project: https://sourceforge.net/projects/obdtoolbox/

This is by no means an entire directory of OBD resources, just some software I am currently playing with, hopefully I can put together some more detailed information soon.

Air Filter Upgrade
Date Created: March 25, 2013  Date Modified: March 25, 2013

I sourced an after-market airfilter for the Benz, I needed to put a small indentation into the baseplate to get it to sit flush but it gives a much nicer growl..

I also noticed the number stamped in the k-jet is 351–maybe thats good luck coming from a blue oval background.

tools from the source
Date Created: April 10, 2009  Date Modified: September 15, 2011

sourceforge, for those who dont know is an online resource for open source software projects. I have found, and are having a play with some of the Neverwinter tools some of the open source community has developed. I’ll let you know how I go with them but here are a few im trying:

Yet Another terrain tool
. – for editing terrain.
Neveredit – mod tool
ASOMS Hackpack – remember the moonsea from the goldbox games?, hopfuly there is some nostalgic type shit in this hackpack

like I said, i’ll post about these products in detail when ive had a good play with them.

Welcome to my Neverwinter Mod Blog
Date Created: March 8, 2009  Date Modified: March 8, 2009

Hi,

Like many I have tried my hand at creating mods for various games, liuckily Neverwinter Nights includes a toolset that is easy for anyone to pick up. I have played around with a few mods but this one is almost good enough to share.

The aim is to escape from a prison/death camp, its far from complete but still have a look.

I’ll use this blog to keep all up to date on developments of the mod…

COME BACK LATER
