My Latest Project.
« on: 23:11, 29 August 11 »
Hi All,
      My latest and most ambitious project yet was "released" this morning:

"Bryce 2.0" weighed in at a healthy 4.54Kg (10 pounds for all you imperialists) and 55cm (21.7") long. The initial "functional tests" seem to suggest that all is working as expected and the project is a definite success. However, as it is with such projects, I expect I'll have to invest many further hours to ensure everything continues to run smoothly (I hear these projects tend to experience teething problems). So my 8-bit development will have to take a backseat for a while. I still intend to regularly visit and contribute to the Wiki and it's Forum, but once I have finished the MegaFlash orders, there'll be no further projects for a while.

Bryce.

I terrified my parents, by disassembling every single electronic device in the house to "See how it works" when I was just seven/eight years old :D My parents were probably relieved when I started showing interest in the car :D

Was your family car so cheap that they'd prefer you to ruin that instead? :D

No, I said "probably"! My interest in cars worried them too, just not as much :) And cars didn't have electronics back then, so there wasn't much worth taking apart :D

Congratulations! Now almost everything in your live will change, but in a very positive way. Even if there will be minutes and maybe hours where you will not be really sure about that. :-)

A boy. And just like I did, he'll be getting his first Soldering Iron for his seventh birthday. I'll let him know that his first project is a buzzing neon avatar?
