Reset #30-Party was fun.

To be the only German on a French CPC-Party is not that weird as I expected, A lot of the French CPC-guys speak English and they use it. So understanding was not that problem at all.

I tested STarKos-Tracker and found some irritating bugs, but Thargan made clear, those are features and he will not code them away 🙂 So I found some nice “hidden” features instead. To participate on the music competition, I used Soundtrakker on which I remembered all of the shortcuts and also how to switch the info-slices on the software. So I made a nice little sound. I expected to get under the top three at the competition and as I was the only one who take part at the competition I surprisingly made the third place. Yay! Better than at the revision 🙂 I’m a happy Kangaroo.

Oh, have I mentioned, that my car broke and had an engine error. So first as I arrived in Coutances I went to the local Ford dealer, and with hands and feet I declared my car broken 🙂 And they checked it and repaired it within 40 minutes. Lucky me. 50 Euros and a “Zündkerze” later everything was well again.

Here are some pictures: 



Mr. Beam II arrived

Yes! After a very very long time (November 2016) yesterday my Mr Beam II laser cutter arrived. I pledged this thing on Kickstarter.  But: I have no time to unpack this thing. Damn. At the Weekend there is the European Song Contest, so I need to cheer to Belarus’ music entry 🙂 Whatever. I hope to unpack the Mr. Beam II soon and start my first steps into laser cutting.

First thing I will cut: my name. Second: Amstrad CPC 464 keyboard case 😀

Everything “new” again

I wanted to start today with my small Arduino project but realized, that i only can activate my computer’s operating system while being connected to my company’s active directory and domain. Damn Windows 10 Enterprise 🙂 So i just started over again installing Windows 10 Pro. And I also set up my Arduino IDE. At the beginning I had some troubles connecting the NodeMCU board as i didn’t knew, that there must be separate board-settings loaded to the Arduino IDE. But the internet helped my very well with this blogpost. And I installed the settings and also already tested them with my board. works very well.

Just a new Blog from Kangaroo MusiQue

I’ve had a blog years ago and blogged all day long, started very early and stopped in 2015, deleted all stuff and that was it. Now, a few years later i thought about blogging again, Mainly to divide my private blog from my artistic work i do as Kangaroo MusiQue. So that’s the main reason why i start blogging again. The other reason is: there are people who are interested in the music i do. And for those and for my own pleasure i want to start to archive those nice little bleeps and blops i am doing on the Amstrad CPC, the funny stuff i do with my Apple MacBook and all the other things around me. So maybe it is getting boring, but i hope it will not. We will see and so this is my first blog entry right after Revision 2018. I will blog mainly in English, also i know my English is not as good as i could be. But that will be improved by time writing English i think. We will also see if this happens. So: welcome to my new blog. If you like to follow use the RSS-feeds or the notification list.
