Friday The Rabbi Slept Late..

Hey all.
So, another hectic week of tests but its been pretty okay..not too much sweat :-)
So, preparations for Engineering Week are underway...magazine launch, customized tee-shirts and Auditions for the exhibition projects. And I hear I'm to be a judge! But only if I behave..
Like before, categories include software, embedded systems, game design and pretty much anything that sounds remotely techy. I'm actually looking forward to this. I'm pretty sure we're going to see some really wild projects. Will you keep you posted as events unfold.
Meanwhile, I'm still waiting for comments regarding the Intro to AVRs series. Just drop a line (and leave your email address) in the comments and I'll email it to you.

The Morning After..

Hi all.
Excuse the long delay between posts. Its been a rather hectic week here at the DEE (tests all over the place :-x). Its still a busy set of weeks, but I missed my computer so much we're having a fun afternoon together ;-)
If I recall correctly, I said something about talking about Microcontrollers and things related to them.
Starting out roughly three years ago was a very sucky experience-at first. There never seemed to be one guide to understanding everything you needed to know. Hence three years later, I began to pen a small piece on AVRs, hoping to ease the process for anyone interested. There are two of them, but I'm going to upload only one. It needs lots of work but with your help and comments I'm sure we can get it off the ground. If you like it enough, I'll post the other and hopefully subsequent pieces. Although due to limitations on Blogspot, you'll need to drop a line in the comments so I can get it across to you. I'll see if I can get hosting…
