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 was updating the news on this page and decided to check my BlackDuck
(formerly Ohloh) profile. It says I have made 990 commits to Open Source
projects. The real number is higher but it doesn't count changes made to
branches. Just ten more commits until that nice round 1,000.

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.

I have added a second project to the
Hackaday website. The project is a
GPS Receiver for Nikon D3100 Cameras.

software section of this website.

I have started working on the design of some hardware that will let me
program AVR microcontrollers using the SPI interface on a Raspberry Pi.
I was using a USB based AVR programmer but the AVR microcontroller it
uses has gone bad. I can fix it but to program a new microcontroller
requires a programmer. This sounds like a catch 22, or a chicken and
egg situation, but I can break the cycle by using the Raspberry Pi I
have sitting on my workbench.
