I have a new WizNet W5200 for Parallax QuickStart. I'm currently developing code to design a few "Internet of Things" items. If I have it running you should be able to see what is going on here:
More to come as things are discovered.

I have been investigating the BAM method of LED dimming. There are already many microcontroller programs written to control a LED or multiple LEDs with BAM, however I wanted to fully understand the method so I threw together some SPIN code to prove it would work. Click the Read more link for details on the code.
The Stingray platform is a robotics development platform from Parallax. I will be using this platform to expand my knowledge of robotics and explore my interests in mobile robotics and mapping. In order to do that Gamma (as every good robot needs a name) has been equipped with 3 Parallax Ping sensors. These sensors use ultrasonic pulses to measure distance to other objects. More about this as the investigation continues.
The Javelin Stamp was the first real microcontroller I used. It ran a subset of Java and was able to be programmed using standard Java based programming structures and syntax. Today I was poking around the manufactures website and noticed it no longer exists for sale. It had been EOLed a few years ago, but now it can be officially reported as retired. I have created a few different products (for example Bell Controller 1.0) that use them as the brain of the device so they will continue to live on in them. So long little Javelin Stamp, I for one will miss your simplicity and ease of use.
