A lot of languages (not only the European ones) use decimal comma instead decimal point to separate the whole and the fractional part of a number in decimal form. Matlab (like other programs) uses decimal point for this purpose. This is okay when using it for computations but it is better to use decimal comma in graphs embedded in documents written in some European language.

BeagleBone Enclosure by Built-to-Spec

A few days ago I discovered very nice acrylic enclosure for my BeagleBone board at Built-to-Spec. Craig placed his project to Thingiverse, so that everyone can make his own.

Both sites Built-to-Spec and Thingiverse are worth seeing since they offer more interesting projects. I am happy that so many people publish their constructions on the web. They all help to make our world better place :-)
