They were written with an old blogging platform, and are no longer really maintainable, however as they are linked too from various pages on the web - it seemed a good idea to try and archive them. I have written just enough code to get them to display - but there will probably be a few broken links and images.

Bananas!

Bananas!

It seems like i have been gethering a little attention as of late!

My half-joke-half-real idea for WTFDUINO has picked up a bit of media attention, and the reaction seems to have been suprisingly positive, I'll admit, I had been expecting a few more negative comments!

I am working on seeing if a Kickstarter is a viable option for me, Although I am slightly confused as to the legalities of how to actually sell the things, Coupled with how many i can actually produceā€¦

Hopefully I can work something out before the "media storm" dies down, if anyone has any experiance selling home-made circuit boards in the UK then please get in touch!
