Welcome to my little corner of the world wide web.

In here you will find a wide range of information. You will find the almost obligatory collection of links to other sites, pages about various software and hardware projects I am (or have been) working on, and pages relating to my interest in 3D graphics. You will even find a little bit about me in here.

What’s New and Changed

I bought some Xilinx Spartan 3 and Spartan 6 based FPGA boards a few years ago. I have finally started doing something with them. I have added an FPGA notes section to my wiki to hold information about my successes and failures while I learn to work with FPGAs and how to control them using VHDL.

In 2007 I wrote some software to log contacts during the Ontario QSO Party amateur radio contest. It is a set of DOS based programs that have seen good service over the years. It has also been run in the DOS or Command window under Windows. That is, until Windows 10 came along. The OQPLog programs no longer run under Windows 10. I've been thinking of updating the programs for the past couple of years. Now it is time to get down to work on an update.

Every now and then I would think about getting a 3D printer. I would start researching available printers. After reading about the various printers, and all the possible issues with them, and the time it can take to learn to use them effectively I would talk myself out of buying one. However, this year my family didn't know what to get me for my birthday so they offered to buy me a 3D printer. After looking around for a while I found a deal on a printer that needed some minor repairs. I will be writing about some of my experiences with a 3D printer in my wiki.

I was updating the news on this page and decided to check my BlackDuck profile (formerly Ohloh). On July 8 I made my 1,000th commit to Open Source projects. The real number is higher but BlackDuck doesn't count changes made to branches.
Commit number 1,000 was made to the Open Simulator project. The changelog entry was:
    commit 21de9162258057a59cf42acad89938b353c02d6f

        Fixed the order of two file names used in a warning.

Today was a very bad day. The beloved family cat, Ash, who adopted us about ten and a half years ago died this morning at 11:20am after a two month illness. The family is feeling completely and utterly shattered. I have created an album in my Flickr account containing pictures of Ash that I have taken over the years. I have removed the pictures of Ash from the Gallery section of this site as the Flickr album has more pictures of him.

I have completed the development work on my AVR Programmer for Raspberry Pi project. The last things I need to do for this project are to write up some documentation, and to make available the version of avrdude_gui that I have been using.
