Recently I have been slacking with my posts and updates and its about time I made one really long update, add some goals and things I would like to accomplish. So let me explain why I haven’t been updating recently. Recently I have been working really hard on creating the abstract and documentation for the MBED NXP challenge, then I was sick for 2 out of the 4 weeks of FEB and just in a slump due to winter blues(happens every year). But now I am starting to get back into things and I am ready to start/finish some projects.
- Mbed NXP challenge,
Finished the abstract and Documentation, submitted what i had just because of deadlines. I am glad i turned in something but i am very disappointed in myself about the writing and editing. By far this is probably the worst piece i have written since I got out of school(the only piece i have written since i got out of school), but this was a good learning experience. The things that I have learned from the whole contest is…………………..Start your papers and documentation early!!! Other then that, take your time double check and even if you don’t win you will have learned something. Pics and what has been accomplished, coming soon!!
Keep an eye out for this project, it will still be worked on but I have to take a small break and let my mind rest on it for a bit(sort of at a standstill).
other projects..….MSP430 projects coming on down the line. Stepper drivers and Servo drivers are in the works. The concept i would like is an ESC or other driver controlling the motor/servo or stepper and will either accept I2C or SPI commands…… Something simple and elegant.
Also a few noise makers would be nice to create since i have 3 piezoelectric discs not being used yet.
Other things that need to be done
some other things that i would like to accomplish in the near future, would be to re- code my google maps project, finish up my DEV web server(harden and clean out). Create a mirror on my server for my site(just in case). Start working on my T20 project and get the BootTP working, recreate the new firmware, so i can load up Linux. Another thing I cant forget it start planning my CNC machine, i have an old scanner and a bunch of steppers that would look good moving a cheap rotary tool(dremmel)…. oh and i cant forget the home made cat toy that i really want to make ….oh and i really cant forget the cloudy day solar light charger(lol it will be explained later)…. too many ideas lol…
If i have missed something you would like to see me finish, or that my attempts at what I am trying to accomplish will not work, then by all means tell me or leave a comment , Trolls Welcome Also if you have any great ideas or improvements to the site let me know( even if they are small or you have a different way of doing something) All comments, criticism and trolling will be answered.
Thank you, every one for the support, comments and criticism and typo/grammar corrections!!!
