I’ve recently bought a few SparkFun ProMicro 5V 16Mhz clones from Ebay because they are extremely cheap (7 Euro each) and habe native USB. The only problem i had is that i was not able to program them using inotool.
I’ve tried to generate the locales on my Raspberry Pi, but i ran into a problem that i was not able to solve for a few hours.

I finally activated the Disqus comment system for my blog. I wanted to do this for a while now but was to lazy to do it :–)
I do a few webprojects with Flask and I love it!
While creating a template i searched for a way to call functions from within the template, and found out that i can use a
I have built a PCB drill that works nice most of the time, but sometimes it occurs that the stepper motor don’t perform a full turn.
Last Tuesday I’ve nearly finished the complete code for the MateDealer project. After I’ve successfully vended a Club Mate (that is the drink the MateDealer got it’s name from) I loged the MDB communication with my logic analyzer. I have taken a few screenshots of the logic trace and now i will try to explain the complete procedure.
