Moving the Arduino stuff to a new site…

I have decided to move all the Arduino/programming related posts over to a different website. All of the existing posts have been moved to:

This is the web page for my software company, Sub-Etha Software, that I co-founded back in 1990. It seemed to be a more appropriate place for discussing Arduino than on this Apple-inspired research site.

See you over there!

Stay tuned…

Greetings. All the old content from my former Applause site, including the postings on FireWIre/SATA and UltraProjector, will be migrated to this WordPress blog shortly.

Until then, enjoy the blandness of a generic install.

No Longer a Newbie

Although I’m not quite yet 40, I know I’m old. Ancient, even, by computer terms. I was born before the home computer, and grew up discovering just what “home computer” really meant. My first computer had 4K of memory. My next, 32K. Moving up to 128K then 512K and beyond was just part of the evolution. My first hard drive? 20 megabytes. Today, that wouldn’t even hold four photos taken by my digital camera. (And, for what it’s worth,my first digital camera came with a whopping one meg of memory and could hold about 32 images, though I later expanded it to 5MB.)

The point? Things change. What was once new soon becomes old, and what was once old soon becomes ancient. It seems only yesterday I bought my first Mac, an original model 1998 iMac. Eight years later, I realize I’m no longer a newbie.

Welcome to Appleause. Based on years of experience.
