So that below was all 2014. Haven’t done much with IT lately 🙁

 

 

Being an I.T guy I love playing with new tech.
Besides learning Drupal lately I have been learning all about coding or re-coding of BMW onboard computers.
So DIS, TIS, SSS GT1 etc are becoming all too familiar. They are all based on OBD which is an open standard for talking cars.
Some of it is actual re-coding of modules in the car like central locking or dashboard displays. It is also about diagnostics to find faults and then guided troubleshooting.
Getting the BMW compatible software to run is a bit of a mission. VMware is your friend here so knowing the basics of virtual machines is a must.
