yeah, thats why I stepped back from dev here after the Pandora; I have so little free time, that any projects of mine take foreeeeever to get anywhere. I've been trying to get back to more of that, as the kids get older, but not there yet!
Latest shenanigans is turning an old DC motor from a photocopier into a weedwhacker, affixing it to the front of one of my robot cars, with a plan to drive it via goggles on first person camera view into weeds; who wants to cut grass by hand like a chump? But even goofier shorter term works like tht I've not gotten to :/
Last zikzak work was working on learning FPGA and Verilog and such, so that I could use a low end FPGA (XC6SLX9) as the GPU; I got HDMI out from the FPGA (!) as a standalone demo, and assembled a lame little LCD VGA/HDMI/composite monitor for myself so that I could have a monitor for testing, on my bench, that didn't take up much room. I had considered working on a new upscaler, as theres not a lot of those out there and they're always way too pricey and fiddly, but in the end.. no time, and if I made one, it'd cost a fair amount for me to ship, so wasn't worth it. I think some open source upscalers have come along as well..
So, zikzak-wise, I should get back to working on th FPGA as a video card. Sometime
