How to connect OV7670 (with FIFO 422b) to an Arduino Uno?

Hi all,

I have a arduino uno and a OV7670 + FIFO 422b camara module (22 pins). But I'm not sure how to connect those two and view a video stream on my computer using the serial port(that is my ultimate goal). Do you have any ideas/blog links that describs how to do that? 

Why I Respect my Robot Elders

I've been forced to take holiday from work, Bek has closed my lab until June 1st, and I don't do down-time well.  Given I'm without a lab for the moment, I'm forced to seek other outlets for my brain.  So, I thought I'd write a few reflections regarding my experiences at LMR in the last two years I've been a member.

I thought I'd write about something I've noticed about LMR in regards to the influx of knowledge: Respect for our Robot Elders.
