a lot on my plate == no posts

Yes, I know i’ve neglected my blog for FAR too long again..  well no more.  I’ve made a schedule and I will stick to it.  new posts on many of the projects I’ve been working on to come.  every week there will be at LEAST one.

first coming up in a day or so will be about the FPGA CPU design i’m playing with.  this serves no REAL purpose other than to say look what *I* figured out.  and has already elicited assistance from a fellow blogger.  Alex from http://langster1980.blogspot.ca was a great help in sorting out my Component embedding whoas.

Then there’s the Coleco Video output fix, 2 AVR projects and a Microchip as well as countless 3D printing updates. so stay tuned!

Where have I been

Well that didnt go so well. Life, Kids, Sports/etc… things get in the way.  but lets fix that now.  I have been playing around with a Mimas V2 for a short while trying to learn FPGA and i’m doing well I think.  Recently I decided to try and learn how to drive the VGA.  although far from a proper working solution I can get the driver to work on my multisync monitor.  I have reached out to a fellow FPGA/Mimas V2 blogger (Alexander Lang) and he’s agreed to help me figure things out.  of course I’m always interested in information/assistance from my readers as well so heres the GIT.

Pics, etc will be available soon, unfortunatelly posting this from the office right now.  I also promise to try and get back into the weekly postings again and I’ll share more on my projects (I have several on my bench right now).

as always stay well and don’t forget your towel!
