My history with having computers started with the Commodore 64.
In the early 1980's when I was a child, me and my friends frequented partly the game arcade and the retail shops in town that had computers. Back then the different shops used to have computers on display that you could try, only from time to time you would get told to move on.
If you have followed this blog, you will know, that I have been absent for quite some time now - actually the latest post was on the 24th of March 2019, almost 3 months ago. This was not planned at all, it just happened. Too many things happening in my work life as well as in my private life.
Using an Micro Controller and different means of displays Kaddu Klock is a project that displays time and possibly other useful information.
I started this project back in 2014 using an Arduino Nano clone and some 7 segment displays. This first instance of the project existed only on a solderless breadboard.
For the second instance I started to use 8 x 8 matrix LED blocks, still utilising an Arduino Nano clone as the computing force. This was initally on a solderless breadboard, but I also tried to solder a veroboard version up. I never managed to get the latter version working.
I have also been working on an OLED based version this time with an ESP8266 as the brains
The latest version is the Kaddu Klock Giant. This will use a D1 mini (clone) as the brains, a 3D printed body with large 3D printed 7 segments being lit by LEDs.
I am trying to do as much as I can with what I have. I am however not a rich man, and my line of work - Pastor - is not one that will make me or my family among the most wealthy in the world. Being a pastor is actually a vocation - a calling and not a job.
Needless to say some of the projects I have do cost money. Either in parts or in support materials, tools and training. So I would like to ask for your contributions, if you like or benefit from my posts on here or YouTube.
This is the home of the Phoenix BSE Companion (Android) App
Phoenix BSE Companion is an Android Companion App to the game Phoenix BSE - a Play By Mail space soap/odyssey Role Playing Game.
The thought behind this app is for it to be a companion, a help to a Phoenix BSE player - mainly myself, but if anybody else can use it I will be all my pleasure.
The Phoenix BSE Companion Android app is hosted on GitHub but remember that this is a Work in Progress
You do not have to be an expert 3D modeler to have something worthwhile to print. There are sites where you can download printable 3D models for free and there are sites where you can buy (and sell) 3D models for printing. A good place to find models for free is Thingiverse.
More Articles ...
This category will host articles about the Commodore Amiga line of computers, both (historic) information about this line of computers as well as articles on both legacy and new hardware as well as software and games, old and new. We will be looking at the AmigaOS, AmigaDOS, Workbench, ARexx and the CLI (Command Line Interface).
The above may be divided into sub categories, so check those, if you can not find what you are looking for.
There may also be introductions and information pages related to my YouTube videos on these thems.
