Kaddu Klock

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.

Printrbot Simple Metal upgrade: SpiderFlexiPlate System

A few days ago I shared with you my 3D printer, the Printrbot Simple Metal. When I bought this printer there was a BuildTak 3D Print Surface which has performed well for me. But it had a few holes in it and removing prints was becoming a challenge without ruining the BuildTak.

Heart-shaped box designed and printed in 3D (WIP)

As I am trying to become a 3D printing Noob, I am practicing both 3D design in Autodesk Fusion 360 and 3D printing my designs. I made a fairly simple Heart-shaped box for my wife.

Problems with print sticking to the Print Bed.

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.

This is my 3D printer: Printrbot Simple Metal

As I wrote over a year ago in the article I want to be a 3D Printing Noob ?!? I really, really wanted to get a 3D printer, so that I could get started on 3D printing, more than just when I had the opportunity to print at FabLab Spinderihallerne, maybe once a week, when I had the time to go there. So I was looking for a cheap 3D printer to own myself.

Luckily a friend had this used Printrbot Simple Metal for sale:

My favourite mugs

In our house, none of us drinks Coffee. But we do drink a lot of Tea. Usually Black Tea with Milk ("English Tea" to us). I prefer Ty-phoo Tea, but PG Tips is ok as well.

So I have a few go to mugs that I prefer. So without further ado this is my (current) list:

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.


My Amiga projects

Productivity 2.1

This project will explore how to build a Productivity setup on a standard Amiga 500, using the built-in floppy drive and if possible a 2nd, external floppy drive.

The Productivity 2.1 project is based upon Kickstart 2.04/2.05 and Workbench 2.1
