LPC1114 USB-Serial Solution -- Rerolling Boot Uploader

UPDATE: 6/04/14

Working UUE, but I know there are better ways to write it.  And I still need to deal with null padding.

UPDATE: 5/31/14

Been distracted by other projects.  Back at it.

I've a rough draft of the UUE encoder, but doesn't work.

Bitbang Control over FTDI
This is a short note on how to setup a C programming environment for the FTDI chip in bit banging mode, since that's what I had difficulty doing. There may be … Read more

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.
