  1. for breadboarding (w/o debugger connection and eventually w/o launchpad), u need to tie the RESET pin to Vcc (3.3v) otherwise your firmware won't start. see this is my hookup, i am running the wires via the jumper block headers but it's the same. http://www.simpleavr.com/msp430-projects/3p4w-clock/3p4w04.jpg

  2. I was browsing through bluehash's other site, and came across this link showing his workspace (drool): http://www.machinegrid.com/2009/12/the-jerker-geek-desk-workbench/ Personally, I have a 6-foot folding table in the basement for my workspace (I'll add a pic later). I would like to see pics of others' set-ups, perhaps with lists/descriptions of their main features/tools. At the very least, it would give a reason to clean up your work area! (As I must do before taking a pic. :oops: ) Anyone willing to share? Post pics of your coding/building areas (mine are separate) and

  5. @bluehash haha good eye. Panavise, multi-hand helper hidden behind it. Next to it is breadboard with nerdkit on it along with avrisp-MkII. Along with the box of launchpad is 2 boxes of ez430-chronos. I ended up with 2 of them since TI sent me a defective one first time around and let me keep it while replacing it with a new one. Gotta love TI. I have 2 mice because one of them is a Razer gaming mouse which didn't work too well with my kvm switch. I have 2 towers (headless linux server and windows vista as gaming HP box), and 1 nettop (ubuntu desktop) behind my monitors. My keyboard is co

  6. Oops, I should've posted here first instead of on the main page. I know, the first thing you'll notice is all those toys! I collect these japanese robot models called Gundams. I know I am a "grown up kid". The black shelf on the left is where I keep all my components and mcu's. I keep couple of programming books (and some finance books) nearby. And hidden behind the stash of books is couple of issues of Make magazine. @GeekDoc, I need a work/tool station like that. I love it. @bluehash/gatesphere/NJC, what do you guys recommend for soldering iron. I have a cheapo one that s

  8. You know, I was going to start a thread on this, but did not, as I thought it would scare guys to post theirs. Thanks for the comments. Just to let you guys know, that that workspace was built during the span of three years. Nothing in that setup is new, except for the CPU case and motherboard and a few odd things. -The screens are second hand units. - The entire workspace area is second hand or found on the street except for the magnifier lamp. - Craigslist is a great source for parts. Even going around before trash day can help. - One desk was free, the other $50. I agree, I coul
