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 the Fediverse (Mastodon, Pleroma etc) too if you want to know about the projects I'm working on, that may or may not eventually make it to the site.

Is there a particular device that I might be able to extract AT Tiny ICs from? Have gone through hundreds and hundreds of boards of many types, and looked very closely, but cannot find anything like what your hacks often use. Yes, I see a fair amount of Atmel EEPROMs. Keeping my eyes open but could you give me a hint where to look? Trying to reuse things.

Yes, I am fine - just doing lots of stuff I don't have time to put on this site. I'm working on documenting the tiny Macintosh Plus I made; I did a talk about it previously and I need to write it all out and put it on the site. I'd really like to get working on some more small projects again - the big ones are cool but if you want to finish them, a year can fly by without problems.

Thank You for the httpd project! I just got it to work after stumbling through the eclipse & tool chain setup in Win 10. If you ever update it, please add a note to the readme to indicate that htmlflash has to be double clicked in addition to flash in order to send the page content to SPI flash. I still do have a few minor problems, probably my fault - going to try to solve them myself as I learn more that way! Just studying your code alone should be a great way to learn ESP coding!

Hi Love the esphttpd software. I've modded it to handle MQTT protocol for some home automation stuff I'm working on. Problem I've got is getting mkespfsimage.exe to work. I've managed to build the 2012 version using visual studio and I can create the webpages file and blow it to the esp module, but it comes up with magic errors. I've over riden the compeession types ro 1 and level ro 1 and it produces a file of the correct size (approx. 41K) but it doesn't work. I'm having a crack at compiling under cygwin but not really getting anywhere, but I'm a linux newbie. I don't suppose you have a mkespfsimage.exe dor Windows hanging around? In guess that even a compiled Linux version would be useful as I could run it under debian or ubuntu. Currently, I've got a raspberry pi2 running debian, mosquitto MQTT, Node Red and a MYSQL server. All of this gets hooked to by the ESP module! I've also done a little board with an Atmel ATTiNY85 that handles the reset and GPIO0 to make programming automatic ala Arduino. It also has a temperature sensor and an opto relay for mains control..lots of fun I need to mod the web pages so that I can configure the MQTT server details ... I've already made the SSID setup work on a button at power up and saved the details to flash, but I'm stuck on generating new setup web pages. Any help would be greatly appreciated Aidan (aidan@ruffs.net)

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

Hi, I have two 16GB and an 8GB chip from broken Ipod Touch units here as well as a few assorted Flash chips. Any use? I tried to transplant one onto a BGA capable pendrive but it isn't doing anything. Can send this too as it might be handy due to the large pin spacings. Had a thought about interfacing to chips, what about using an elastomer based system and 3D printed clamp? The connectors used on Poundland voltage sensors are useful here, discovered that ages ago.

Sprite_tm wrote at 19 Apr 2013, 1.34:

Sorry, the coin validator isn't done yet... I can get it to validate coins fairly well directly after calibrating it, but temperature, humidity, the phase of the moon and who knows what else makes it pretty unreliable even after sitting for just one day, making it kinda useless. I'm still planning on picking up the project again, but I'm not sure when I'll find the time.

Very cool! I did a somewhat similar hack not long ago, but since I didn't know about the ZIF socket I used the more expensive 360 Clip and a RPi to bit-bang it. See http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=16775 The main issue with the 360 Clip is that the contact with the NAND is not very good, and in addition part of the PCB sticks out of the clip, leading to inability to position the clip if there is a high enough component, like a capa, on one side of the NAND.

Thanks :) I have a 32-hour job, which leaves 3 days a week free for me. Usually, one to one-and-a-half of these is filled with boring stuff like cleaning, keeping the house in shape, scouting etc, but the rest I can use for interesting projects. Unfortunately, about half of the projects fail in a more or less early stage, so there's some time I don't spend on any projects which will make it to the website. (I'll maybe post them sometimes; even if not completely finished, there still are a couple of interesting things in between.) All in all, it's still enough time to do one project a month; my productivity is more limited by a lack of inspiration than by a lack of time.

Hmm, paypal seems to be 'nice' enough to send you to the Dutch page instead of to the English page I selected when I copypasted the link-code. I'll look into it when I've got the time; if you want to donate money you can do it directly to my account at paypal at jeroen dot ietsmet dot nl.

David wrote at 10 Mar 2009, 4.32:

I'd tip your tip jar a bit, but unfortunately I only grok english and there's an unrecognizable error on the paypal/tip jar page. I considered just paypaling your email address but then it wouldn't go to the jar. :/ david@blue-labs.org

I'd love to :) I seem to be one day late for it, though. Moved to my new house yesterday.

And as you may have seen, stuff has settled a bit and I'm publishing projects again. 2 done and I'm working on some more; as long as nothing comes up I'll be publishing once every month or so again.

Sprite_tm wrote at 13 Sep 2008, 21.18:

JoeJoe: I seem to have this thing called a 'life' which consists of work and other people and stuff like that. I'm not quite sure how I came to own one, but it sometimes does take up some of my time. At the moment, the time-uptaking properties of it kinda have pushed the article-writing to the background: I still do have one or two things lying around, but can't seem to get the time to document them :/

Hey Sprite. I love the article on your digital keychain hack. Have you come across any smaller-form digital photo frames? If not, got any idea of the components needed to make the smallest digital photo frame known to man?

Hi. You can get an IronKey in Europe from our UK resellers AllPoint and Complete Source. http://www.allpoint-security.com/ http://www.secure-usb-flash-drive.co.uk/

Sprite_tm wrote at 5 Apr 2008, 22.03:

No prob :) Atm, I'm working on two things which both are large-ish projects, so they take some time to actually finish. In the mean time, I'll see if I have something that's published elsewhere that I can put online here too; if I find something, I'll try and put it online tomorrow. Indeed, this site has been without updates for too long ;)

JoeJoe wrote at 5 Apr 2008, 15.31:

Sorry to bother ya, but are you planning to release anymore articles soon? :) - I haven't been able to find another site even remotely like your own, which is kinda sad. :(

Tom wrote at 31 Mar 2008, 15.58:

They probably don't want you (sprite) to get one in your hands, because you'll probably crack this device too :P

Sprite_tm wrote at 25 Mar 2008, 11.33:

The IronKey sounds like a secure device. Unfortunately, they seem to be restricted to export it to Europe, where I'm based, so I have no hands-on experience to see if the security is real or not.

JoeJoe wrote at 24 Mar 2008, 7.16:

Hey Sprite_tm, A friend of mine has been gloating about the "IronKey", from their site description is sounds secure. (Although Windows/OSX only..) Have you seen it? https://www.ironkey.com/

Done. Please be more carefull about where you fill in your email-address next time, tho'.

Your hacks and tutorials are intense. Pulsing an RGB LED to run a POI display is just brilliant. I work for Instructables.com and have to say there's a keen lack of clever hacks like your own represented on the site. Would you consider posting there?

I once read about the 'electronic stamp' than 'the knock to open' rig and now I realize they are from the same blog as the "LED fan clock" ! Congratulation , man ! All of these well documented also. BTW I like paper sketches. A.

Sprite_tm wrote at 20 Oct 2007, 10.33:

Nope, I'm still alive. There are a couple of good articles coming up, but I'm involved in other projects too and the articles that I'm going to publish are things in cooperation with other sites, so they unfortunately take a lot longer to arrange. ETA til a new article is about 2 weeks, so stay tuned :)
