Well, I’m sure that you’ve noticed the new layout and domain name for my blog. Over winter break, I decided it was silly to have both a blog site and a school website. So, I purchased this domain (www.samkerr.com was taken) and am now going to host both sites here. My web host, A Small Orange, has a really good deal on a years worth of hosting for only $25, so Idecided to go with that. So far, it’s performing much better than my old site. If you’re in the market for a new web host, I’d appreciate you signing up through the previous link, since I get a referral bonus.
Anyways, at Christmas, I got a starter set for the Parallax Propeller microcontroller, an 8 core, 32-bit microcontroller. I really like to work with hardware and embedded type stuff, so I was really excited about this. I’ve played with AVR chips before, but this chip has a lot more power built-in, but it won’t require as much work as using an FPGA either.
