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".

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)...

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 :-)

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
Duane Benson   10/28/2013 11:38:39 AM
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.

I guess we (readers and/or bloggers at APP) just found a new home.


It will be for certain as exciting as All Programmable Planet was. We have much to share, and much to learn. I must confess, I will miss APP - one of the few blogs I actually followed for some time, and for which I tried to contribute, despite my lack of time and language barrier.

Let's hope this new home improves on the already excellent one. It's surely only up to us to succeed.

So...
keep the blog entries rolling :)

I would have thought that making a 'static' copy of the deceased web-site would be easy enough. I'm glad I'm not using Xilinx devices, with the attitude they show ... 

Lesson learned (again) if you put something on the internet, keep a local copy.

It was very strange the passage back from the other dimension, although I don't have any recollection of even being there for a mere nanosecond. It is good to be back, though. Thanks for the pinch! Even though it still hurts a little, I'm glad to be back. :0)

The first thing I got before I could read your reply was an ad :)

Luckily I can opt-out and decide not to come back, unless I have to.

Somebody suggested using an ad-blocker. Now I don't mind seeing ads next to the 'content of interest' and sometimes they are worth clicking. But this 'interjecting' of the ad that you have to click out of are a violation of marketing rules: Don't upset the customer. Now this customer is pissed off :) I have seen this 'Linear Technology' ad about 20 (twenty!) times today and my subconsious (evil) mind starts blaming them as well :) 

As soon as I click 'Post' I will get served one more :)

Again nothing personal, but unfortunately you are the one in the trenches.

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.

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 :)

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?

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.
