I've been working on my GSSL Control project lately. I've designed a PCB for it, and got it back from fabrication. I managed to solder all the SMD stuff without incident so far. I've got a debug LED flashing, which is a good start. I'm using an AT90USB1287, and was planning on just using the DFU bootloader from Atmel, but it turns out that the USB bootloader can't program the fuse bytes. I had to dig out my USBasp and do some dodgy wiring to program the fuse bits to turn of the CLK/8 bit. Now I've done that though, the USB bootloader should be fine. I'll try and update the project page when I get some time.

It's been a while since I posted an update. I've been super busy working on the game with Glenn. We've frantically coding the 0.04 release. Check out where we're up to at codetactics.com.
I've tidied up some of the projects in my project page. I haven't been working much on my audio electronics projects, they tend to be expensive and at the moment I'm saving for a holiday. Working on Apollonia is a much cheaper hobby!
I've been playing a bit of PS3 lately, so I've added a project page that shows my gamer card. You can now check out my trophy collection and keep up with what I'm playing here.

Glenn and I are coming up on the second release of our game, version 0.02. We've been managing the project through Assembla, which is amazing. Make sure you check the codetactics site for updates on that.
I'm going to start documenting my SSL compressor control project, so I've made a project page for that. Once I get started, it'll have all the design, and requirements etc. Should be cool.

Glenn and I have finally released the first version of the game. You can go and download it from codetactics.com. Any feedback would be good!

I managed to trade in my Digidesign 001 recording interface for a brand spanking new 003 Rack Factory with Music Production Toolkit. It was a bit of a mission getting the paperwork in order, but I'm super happy. This included a free update to Protools 8, which I've downloaded, but haven't managed to install yet so that'll be a cool late Chirstmas present when I can get it installed.
I also got a new guitar for Christmas (partly from myself, partly from Laura). Its a Fender Richie Sambora signature Stratocaster. 1996, Lake placid blue, rosewood neck, Floyd Rose double locking tremolo, humbucker in the bridge. I'll get some photos up when I can.
Lately I've been working a lot on Glenns helicoper game. He's aiming for a release pretty soon. We've got a domain, codetactics.com, so it'll go up over there when it's done. The first release will be for Linux, Mac OS X and PSP. Should be good.
