Welcome to Spritesmods. At this site, I'll document my more interesting hacks for your viewing pleasure. While it's not updated that regularly, I try to add an article about every month.

Ow, by the way: all the pictures are thumbnails. You can click on them to get the originals, straight from my camera. If you want to comment on an article, there's a discussion area at the last page of every one of 'em.

You can follow Spritesmods on Twitter too if you want to know about the projects I'm working on, that may or may not eventually make it to the site.

The HDD hack is by far the best hack I've come across since "hacking security cameras like a hollywood hacker" blackhat presentation on youtube. You could write a childrens storybook on hacks with your writing style, it wasn't a burden on my mind to read :)

Liked your CM Storm keyboard hack. BTW is there step by step how to open up the whole keyboard? Thanks ;)

Jeroen you are my personal hero! Esphttpd rocks, and I'll probably somehow reuse your attiny FM transmitter code in some future project as geochaching gift... and after seeing your Linux radio I'll probably revisit my openwrt radio build as well.

The ESP8266 web-server example (esphttpd) is great! Many thanks for publishing it (and for the people who got to this page and have no idea what I'm talking about, check <A HREF="http://www.esp8266.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=376&hilit=esphttpd">esp8266.com/esphttpd</A>).

Hello! I read your article at http://spritesmods.com about "iStorage Disk Genie". Could you help me about another item from iStorage "datAshur" (USB Flash drive - http://istorage-uk.com/datashur.php). Am I right that this flash drive good outside but bad inside like "iStorage Disk Genie"? Have you got any foto from inside of iStorage "datAshur"?

The formatting on my bug fix seemed to have went haywire. Here it is: Change "int len" to "size_t len" in esphttpd/mkespfsimage/main.c

Hi... I've been trying to modify your webserver example to fetch data from a UART device. Here's the problem.. Although the communication works, the watchdog timer resets the device if there's the slightest delay in fetching the UART data. How do I disable the WDT? I can see some Register declarations, but can't figure out how to use them Thanks One more thing : Could you post a way to disable the debug output altogether? Will save me the trouble of having to make the connected devices reject the debug data and look for a header segment Thanks
