I preferred the dolphins

Maybe it's because I'm a Douglas Adams fan, but I preferred the dolphins singing "so long" at APP, to the My Little Pony "Welcome".

It was this or me singing myself -- I think you got off lucky -- in Japan if someone is singing Karaoke and they sing badly people say "he sings with emotion" ... suffice it to say that I sing with so much emotion that I can reduce a room to tears :-)

Can't wait to see you synch your LED cubes flashing lights with the Welcome Song video.

You can put the cube in the foreground and have the video playing on your computer in the background while walking on your treadmill and video the whole thing. Instant Viral Opportunity (IVO)...

Hi Max and all at EE Times Programmable Logic Designline.

Well Crusty has managed to struggle across into the new domain at EE Times and is happy to see that quite a few of the APP live wires are already here.

I am just not sure that a wider world is ready for my approach to electronics and programming, but Max seems composed about this?

I think Crusty must be a Time Lord amongst other things, as Crusty (APP) has been reincarnated (infernally) as Crusty1 at EE Times. Crusty1 also has a new face or to be exact a new photo with the reconstructed eyelids.

I was ionized, but I'm better now

Something that really amazed me was the evolution of the entry level FPGA world while I was at APP; both in terms of accessibility and in terms of my perception. FPGAa were always a huge, expensive mystery to me, but now they're pretty much only a very large mystery to me.

Over the last 18 months the visibility and affordability of FPGA boards has changed radically too. Innexpensive and (relatively) easy to use FPGA boards are popping up all over the place these days. I suspect that if we keep the same course, in another 18 months, FPGA development boards will be nearly as innexpensive and popular as are powerful MCU boards these days. Think Beaglebone and Raspberry Pi, but with an FPGA at their heart.
