I wanted to play Turrican 2 the other day so I fired up an Amiga emulator, but playing it via the keyboard really wasn’t cutting it, so I broke out a USB game pad I had floating around the place. That also didn’t feel quite right 🙁 What I needed was an old Atari style […]
I have to admit is a little disappointed with the phone when I got it. I updated the firmware as far as it would allow me, but the more recent versions of the software would not install 🙁 After a bit of googling I found that there was supposedly a procedure for updating the old […]
Yesterday I took delivery of a Yealink VP-2009 VIOP phone. I was hoping it would be a nicer phone than it actually turned out to be. I have a Yealink T38G and was really happy with it. Unfortunately a lot of the features I like in the T38G are not present in the VP-2009. Ah […]
I now have the replacement PCBs from circuits.io and they look great. They also included some free PCBs, so hopefully they will work. 🙂 I’ll post some pics when I have some
I took a few more pictures of the failed boards and sent them to the fantastic people at circuits.io. They have very generously offered to send me new ones at no charge 🙂 Hopefully these new boards will work out. I also had a quick go at getting one of the boards working. After soldering lots […]
Unfortunately they don’t appear to have worked out as well as I was hoping. On the top side many of the tracks are incomplete, while the bottom side has no tracks whatsoever 🙁 The boards look really nice though. I’m going to have a go at making one of them work soon as I […]
I’ve been playing with circuits.io and have decided to order a couple and see how it goes 🙂 Hopefully they should be here in a few days/weeks.

I just got an email that seems to suggest that I may have one on the way via DHL Express 🙂 YAY!
Funky clock is installed and working really nicely 🙂 I had a little trouble with the digital inputs as the pull down resistors I used were 100K instead of 10K. Also for some reason I was unable to read port E2 at all. Once I moved that input to port C4 and replaced the resistors […]
