Built a couple of diy TV antennas. One built by a lady on instructables.com (that she borrowed the instructions for from Squidoo) was highly touted. We did not have as much luck with it as the ones we already have. caveat emptor.

The MSP430 from TI would not take any code. ran:

sudo apt-get install mspdebug msp430mcu msp430-libc libgempc430 gcc-msp430 gdb-msp430

Did the permissions thing with making a udev rule.

All was well.(used debian...

Started working with some Arduino circuits. Digital, analog and pwm. Built the tv out interface, but it does not work with ethernet ugh. Had a real nice project planned. in any case I was able to do web page scraping. Installed the ide for Arduino on the laptop.

Changed the root password on the Beagleboard.

Already had motion working on the RPi. The RPI basically only uses digital. Might experiment with r2r before getting some adc and dac chips.
