@Max

Well then perhaps the best way to acclimate oneself would be to start a blog about something based on an FPGA. I have a Frequency Counter project languishing in the background that might contain enough material for a blog. If I only had a clue about how to write a blog. I have not indulged myself in that pasttime up to now so I am fatally short of clues. What say Max, do you have any simple recipes for how to conduct a project blog?

@MacChalium: Kind of like a small country village. This place is like a major city.

Yes you are right, but as a kid I went to the city from a small Devon farm and worked for 50 years in London's Hospitals and Underground transport network, the one thing I learnt was that a city is made up of lots of villages.

You just have to seek out a calm place where all like minded people hang out.

I think Max might just provide such a village pub, wher I can meet other locals at the bar.

@MAcChalium:

I have to second that. At times APP sounded a bit as a tea party, but overall there were interesting topics on FPGA. This 'Programmable Logic' section hasn't even touched (I'd say not even with a bargepole ...) on CPLD and FPGA.

@Max:

I had APP 'pinned' in my browser, but I will have to unpin EE-Times, it is not worth the space and attention. I'll pop in for an occasional visit now and then when there is something really interesting :)

The things I liked about APP was that it was small, focused, and interesting. Kind of like a small country village. This place is like a major city. Way too much going on. Don't know if I like it or not. I definately don't like cities. I do everything I can to avoid going to them. Maybe I can figure out how to zero in on just the good parts. Anyway Max, I am here for awhile...

@Antedeluvian: How about the Microcontroller Central blogs as well?

 

I could stick a broom up my ######## and polish the floors as well That's a great idea -- I'll talk to Rich about it when I get back home after this trip :-)

 I'll start porting the APP blogs over next week when I get back.

How about the Microcontroller Central blogs as well?

@Svenand: I was shocked to see that "All Programmable Planet" was gone without notice. I didn't spend hundreds of hours writing my blogs just to see them disapper in a black hole. I want my blogs back.

Hi Sven -- I did email you before the site closed saying it was going to happen. I'm going to bring your blogs over to Programmable Logic Designline -- but I'm in England this week visiting my dear old mom, so I'll start porting the APP blogs over next week when I get back.
