Midori is a lightweight browser using the WebKit rendering engine and it is a default browser that is found in Raspbian. This is a quick quide to start the Midori browser from the command line without a desktop manager.

To start the Midori in full screen mode, use the following command:
xinit /usr/bin/midori -e Fullscreen -a http://domain/homepage.html
However it is not in full screen mode, it just fill up about quarter size of the screen. To fix this problem, Midori must run on a windows manager. Here is the solution:

Wireless Router Remote Control Car

This is my first RC car control by an Arduino and a wirless router running OpenWRT. There are many OpenWRT supported routers, I'm using a TP-Link TL-MR3020 3G/4G Wireless N Router for this project since it is very slim, low power consumption and it is cheap.


RC car features

  • A webcam, the car can be driven without line of sight
  • A horn so that you can honk at people.
  • LED Headlights attached to the front of the car
  • Two wheel drive motor
  • Windows GUI application or web interface
  • Future Additions: Control by a smartphone (Android & IOS)
TPicShow is an image slider VCL that enables you to create amazing splash screens and 176 transitional effects in pure Delphi code.
  1. Image transition can be controlled programmatically
  2. Image can be stretched or centered in the client area of the control
  3. Control can show a background image as centered, stretched, or tiled
  4. Transition process can use a separate thread
  5. New transitional effects can be easily implemented and added.
TPicShow's last update is on July 19, 2010 which does not support RAD Studio XE. By creating a package file, you can installing and running TPicShow on RAD Studio XE5 without any problem.
