This won’t mean much to anyone but I have it (IVL2-7/5) working. Trying to understand Russian datasheets on the IVL2-7/5 VFD and piecing together bits of info from around the web and I have it working. It was like some sort of secret/puzzle that you had to pass to be accepted by other engineers. I have that same feeling I had with A Blinking Red LED. Yeah Baby!

My Nexus 5 was a Telstra variant (KTU84Q) which wouldn’t get the OTA, and I was just sick of waiting. So this is how I side loaded the OTA update for Lollipop (LRX21O)
This is the TL:DR version
I followed this guide

Elon Musk’s first attempt to land a SpaceX stage 1 rocket booster on to a boat didn’t go so well. Here is a video
The problem was the hypersonic fins (the things that steer the landing rocket) ran out of hydraulic fluid so it couldn’t manoeuvre properly.
But you know what, for a first attempt to actually hit the thing is impressive, especially with out steering for the last part.
All I can say is that Elon Musk is a visionary, he doesn’t fear failure, but learns from it so the next attempt can go better.
I am waiting for the day to see him succeed with a landing, this will be one of those events where it changes space flight forever.
I tip my hat to you sir, onwards and upwards.
I recently update Notepad++ and upon first load, this is displayed.
Freedom of expression is like the air we breathe, we don’t feel it, until people take it away from us.
For this reason, Je suis Charlie, not because I endorse everything they published, but because I cherish the right to speak out freely without risk even when it offends others.
And no, you cannot just take someone’s life for whatever he/she expressed.
Hence this “Je suis Charlie” edition.
I thought it was very eloquent and worthy of a repost.
