My old chum Jay Dowling just sent me a link to an interesting video called "Sad Dog Diary" on YouTube. It consists of a series of images of dogs with a human narrator saying what they are thinking, such as the small dog that informs us that:
"A cat is a curious, magical creation – it's as though a teddy bear mated with a cactus – it's much less fun to play with than it would appear..."
Some of these observations are laugh-out-loud funny and some just make you think "How true..." All I can say is that this is strangely compelling – also that a lot of the points made in the video could be spoken by my (well, my wife's) dogs.
If you found this article to be interest, visitMicrocontroller / MCU Designline where – in addition to my Max's Cool Beans blogs on all sorts of "stuff" – you will find the latest and greatest design, technology, product, and news articles with regard to all aspects of designing and using microcontrollers.
Also, you can obtain a highlights update delivered directly to your inbox by signing up for my weekly newsletter – just Click Here to request this newsletter using the Manage Newsletters tab (if you aren't already a member you'll be asked to register, but it's free and painless so don't let that stop you [grin]).
Last but certainly not least, make sure you check out all of the discussions and other information resources at All Programmable Planet. For example, in addition to blogs by yours truly, microcontroller expert Duane Benson is learning how to use FPGAs to augment (sometimes replace) the MCUs in his robot (and other) projects.
