This site is now run using a static site generator (Hugo). Partly because I felt like trying something new, partly because it runs on a very tiny server and had issues loading the complicated setup I had. Plus the content here is all static anyway.

All that stuff I was going to do wayyyy back in the “Updates” entry? I’ve mostly been working on an FPGA project which I’ll have available very soon. It’s the next step up from my NeXT keyboard project - emulating the soundbox! I’ll post the protocol once I have it all written up and I’ll have devices available on drakware soon.

New Product - IndigoUSB

One new product over at Drakware:

New Products

Many more products are available at Drakware!


Now you too can own some fun projects of mine!

Head over to Drakware and take a look. Right now there’s one product available to connect your nice old NeXT keyboard to a USB system. More coming soon!


It’s been way too long! I’ve had more time to dig into the NeXT and some other old systems so I updated the NeXT keyboard protocol page with some new info about timing and stop bits. I’m working on several related projects and hope to have some things available to buy soon!

I’ve been working on the Indigo as well but my power supply died. I’m planning on connecting a much more affordable and readily available ATX power supply to it and will post some details when I get that running.

Other projects include a couple of old Macs, a Sun Ultra 10, a GRiD laptop, and getting into FPGAs. I’ll try and post some details for each of those.
