It has been over year since my last post. What can I say? I've been busy and frankly, I got a little too ambitious with my Arduino software plans. My ambitious ideas led to a lot of "mental intertia" leading to a sense of foreboding preventing me from continuing any more work on the UNO-controlled cell phone project.
So, I have pretty much given up on my overly ambitious UNO project. Instead, I have spent my time on less time-consuming, simpler experiments and home projects. I will spend some time over the next few weeks describing these here.
For instance, I have recently built a decent mid-end gaming PC. It took about two weeks from initial spec to final build and test. I'll describe some of my inspiration and thinking as I was doing this and share some thoughts on what I might have done differently.
Over the past year I have built a couple of LED lighting projects that I would like to share. There is also a bit of DIY home-improvement I will share.
Finally, over the past week or two, I have dusted off the Arduino UNO and played around with programming it to behave as a USB keyboard device. Despite the lack of respect for chronological coherence, that is where I plan to start.
