I've written software for everything from network equipment to Apache helicopters. Although I mostly program in C++ now, it was actually my seventh language I used professionally, so I like to think I can still think outside the C++ box.

comment Is it safe to power on a motherboard outside of its case?
At work we recently had a fire start in an antistatic tray. A lot of things had to go wrong at once, but if you treat something as safe under most conditions, you risk missing that last variable that changes it to unsafe.

comment How do I boot [embedded] linux from sd card?
Most likely. Do a lsmod after you've booted up. If it shows mmc-related modules, that means they are being loaded after the root filesystem comes up.

Embedded software development is not off topic people. This is not like getting your desktop to boot.

comment How should I choose my DNS?
+1 I loved google DNS, for everything except Netflix and Hulu streaming, for which I had tons of buffering problems during peak hours. For the skeptics, I proved it was a DNS problem using a wireshark capture.
