Embedded Projects Journal
As it seems, for about one year there has been a new Embedded Projects
Journal (in German). This magazine focuses entirely on FOSS embedded
projects and open hardware. The idea is to have a magazine written by the
community for the community. Plus, the magazine and all its articles are
It's a pity that I've only noticed about this now. Let's hope more people
learn about it, now that I'm mentioning it here.

FZ6 Fazer is beyond reasonable repair
As it seems, the cost of spare parts and labor to fix the engine of my recently bust FZ6 engine are well beyond EUR 4000, so there's no point in repairing it.
As it further turns out, the previous owner of the bike (I bought it in April
last year) had forged some signatures in the service booklet, i.e. the motorbike
has likely not seen the regular inspection and service like it should. Haven't
yet decided whether to file any claims against that previous owner or not.
Now I've decided to buy a new one of the same model, and keep the old one for
spare parts. At some point next week I should be the proud owner of a
brand-new FZ6 Fazer. With three full years of Yamaha warranty. Hopefully this
one will live longer than 17,000 kilometers.
