Sadfully I don't have a lot of dexterity and electricity is kind of magic for me : I know the circuit basis but not so much when plugging things into said circuit.

There is this awesome thing called VHDL. It's hardware descriptive language. It allows you to create digital systems by typing in words on a keyboard. You can synthesize your designs and upload them to a configurable chip. The endresult is a chip that does exactly what you want. It's not software that's generated from your code, but hardware!
You could try that :D

I know chip like PIC are programmable. That's not a problem. I meant plugging chips, lamps or any thing that needs current without setting the house on fire or destroying the circuit with an error.

Keoni29

That's a different kind of programmable chip. Those chips have a cpu in them that runs software. You don't design the inner circuitry in order to make it do things.

Wow if you manage to run an IP stack on this thing it would be awesome. Telnet anyone ? :D

Keoni29

I believe it already has telnet in the firmware :)
I just need to somehow hook it up to the phone line.

I believe Juju was working on something like that for Omnimaga.

Streetwalrus

Yeah, it should work with CodeWalrus too since we use the same forum software.

Keoni29

No it is not. Juju shut it down for unknown reasons.

DJ Omnimaga

Ah ok, I wasn't sure who hosted it, but since it's him then I'm not surprised, considering he can't even afford internet at home althogether. >.<

Streetwalrus

Yeah that, plus I don't think it was fully functional anyway.

DJ Omnimaga

Yeah IIRC we could just login or something. Then I never heard about progress again.

Duke "Tape" Eiyeron

Yeah, that's sad that project died before a full featured version. :/ This could have been a fun way to acces Omni whil still under low speed Internet access...
