reversing vcc and ground for fun and profit

Electronics. I do them.

I've been doing them on and off for a while, but my tinkering became a prominent hobby after I graduated from college. Moving to Silicon Valley helped, since there are plenty of places to get cheap parts, equipment, and weird old stuff.

I mainly use Atmel AVR 8-bit microcontrollers. I do my development on Linux with avr-gcc. I prefer to design my own circuits rather than use a hardware platform like Arduino. I have also had the unfortunate experience of working with the Handy Board, a truly horrible and outdated microcontroller platform. (Though it did earn me my robotics minor...) I used a PIC once, didn't really like it. An awful Windows IDE (MPLAB), a non-free C compiler (C18), and a parallel port programmer...can't say it was much fun.

The project pages listed below include photos and schematics. Some of my gEDA schematic files use custom symbols for uncommon parts. You can download these symbols here.

If you'd like to contact me, I'm on Twitter. I prefer not to post my email address on the web.
