Arc Shot

I modified an Arc Lighter to play the "We Are Number One" tune by modulating the arc - It'll also only play the tune once, and never again (for added confusion)

New Tutorial! - Microcontrollers NOT ALLOWED
By PodeCoet - Uploaded Thursday, December 25th 2014 @ 23:47:18 ADST


I've been busy studying Electronics & Communications at college this year. We were assigned a simple counter project in our Digital Subsystems class

...In order to mess with my instructors sanity, I hollowed out the inside of a SN74LS47N display driver, and inserted a 16F1503 microcontroller that functions almost identically to it

New section - The Filthy Casual Series
By PodeCoet - Sunday, January 11th 2015 @ 16:31:49 ADST

Minor site update,

I've started a new post category titled 'Filthy Casual', for posts that don't quite fit the Write-Ups format.

Updates will be more frequent, and it's kind-of blog-like, but definitely isn't a blog. Blogs are for wieners.

The first entries are in the menu to the left

All the best!

Maintenance downtime

G'day Ladies and Gents

I'll be taking the website down for maintenance tomorrow evening and replacing it with a boring, white-on-black maintenance page

The write-ups still contain links to our former webstore, and it's causing copious amounts of buggery and confusion - also, I want to play with mod-rewrite and databases.

See you in maintenance hell!
