The story so far. I ordered and built a Freeduino board, made by Seeedstudio, from Robotshop. The board went together OK following the NKC Electronics instructions but the Atmega 168 chip was faulty. I called Robotshop and they sent me over a new Atmega 328 chip. That chip doesn't work either. In the mean time I ordered a 328 chip from Seeedstudio. I'm still waiting for that one. The Arduino community is full of neat projects. I'd like to build the pong game using a 9 x9 LED array.

Once upon a time I had a blog here: http://chatt.hdsb.ca/~druivenm/Blog/. Later, I joined up with Silicon Halton here: http://www.siliconhalton.com/. They have a Linked In group: http://www.linkedin.com/. You need a Linked In account to go there. The point is this. The Silicon Halton group asked people if they had a blog. I guess the group page would use RSS to follow the blog. So I submitted my chatt blog link. Its not a very good blog but I thought I would pay it some more attention. But then it turns out that the First Class server that runs the chatt web site does not do RSS! So here I am at Blogger where I'll try again to post something useful, something thoughtful, something worth reading every week. Here goes . . .
