Although the Japanese cherry blossom Sakura is the most famous, the Japanese plum (梅) blossom is always stunning because its happening in full winter. Often occurring right after new year, its occasionally enduring snow, with temperatures typically well below 10 degrees Celsius. Although called a plum, the fruit is closer related to apricot, and sourcing umeshu (梅酒), a sweet wine or liquor.

Adding a battery buffered realtime clock to the Beaglebone Black provides accurate time when no Internet is available. I used an Epson RX8025NB module, and connected it to I2C bus 1. Under Ubuntu 14.04 LTS a set of rtc drivers already exists, and enabling the clock was a simple command. The biggest work was to enable I2C bus 1 on pins P9-17 and 18, and for battery charge protection, soldering the tiny 2mm schottky diodes (SOD-323) into place.

P.S.: Take a closer look at Google Advertising. Not Photoshop inserted – With unmatched irony and perfect timing, Google AdSense really used that exact moment to promote Chrome.

P.P.S: The problem is caused by nesting tables. Fix: Hardcoding the nested table size, setting the width in pixels fixed it temporarily.
