Evolution of a Blog
This blog has evolved as I have as a maker. It starts at the beginning of my journey where I began to re-tread my tires in the useful lore of micro electronics and the open-source software that can drive them. While building solutions around micro-electronics are still an occasional topic my more recent focus has been on the 3D Printing side of making.

Power Issues = Compass Issues
In a previous post I complained about some compass issues that I have now attributed to, guess what, power! Having sorted out my other power issues I came back to work on the compass a little and found that it was now reading accurately (e.g. agreed with a regular compass). It still delivers the occasional errant reading when a train goes by but I have written some code to tune those out. I now have a compass that is stable within what looks like about a degree.
