In our last adventure we soldered a bunch of stuff onto our little PCB and got it more or less doing what we need, so now the time has come to mount our creations on the truck itself. This actually went a lot quicker and smoother than I’d planned.
Welcome to the second installment in the continuing saga of a boy and his truck. In tonight’s episode, we dust off the soldering iron and get down to business building a couple circuits that will give the truck an “interface”.
Many Christmases ago, I decided I’d been a good boy and rewarded myself with an amusing little 4x4 called the Carnivore. After impulse buying an Arduino Uno, I decided the time was nigh to dust it off and make it fun again.
Every few years I get the urge to set up a telnetable BBS. Over my many aborted attempts, I've tried everything from Synchronet's Win32 port to running various DOS-based BBS software under Windows which worked okay, albeit sluggy and using TCP/IP meant that most of the good old doors were out of the question. Now, however, it's 2008 and virtualization is the buzz-word du jour, so why not learn about it, HTI style??
