I'm a self-employed professional software engineer who has always been fascinated by AI and robots. I'm hoping to be able to spend some quality hobby time building home-brew robots and sharing the fun with my son.
My background is wide and varied. Today I mainly write Java/J2EE applications to be deployed on Linux and Solaris systems. I've got some experience in just about any modern computer language. What experience I lack my business partner fills in. I live and work in the Free Software world of GNU/Linux. In a past life, I developed Win32 telephony applications and drivers with VB/C++ and C respectively.
My hardware experience is very limited at this point. I had a few EE and CSE courses in University maybe 10 years ago but that knowledge is all but gone. The last year or so I've started messing with AVR uCs in what little spare time I have.

I bought my brother a Basic Stamp kit for his birthday last week. I'm hoping we can get some quality time together in the near future and play around with it.
Even if I don't have much time to play with robotics, maybe he can take some of the parts I've purchased over the last year or so.
ok, so BASCOM-AVR with Linux is currently not an option. There is NO ETA on a native linux version so I must find other means. I'm looking into VMWare. Since disk space is at a premium on this laptop I'll prolly have to find something else that works better.
I like GCC but the lack of GDB is a pain, or I expect it to be so. Maybe printf() debugging won't be as bad as I'm afraid it could be. I guess there's no way to find out unless I give it a whirl. Now, where was that AVR-GCC port of the Butterfly source code...
In other news, an AVR-ISP showed up the other day and I'm looking to secure an IrDA IC to play with. Due to the lack of development environment (and time) my projects are on hold.
I received my AVR Butterfly the other day. I can't wait to start messing with it.
I'm still trying to build a usable Linux AVR development environment. The missing feature for me is GDB/simulator. I'm currently trying to get AVR Studio 4.08 (and/or BASCOM) running under WINE.
I've got various small i/o projects in the works right now.
