Tiny FTP Server

For the past few weeks I’ve been working on developing an AVR based embedded ftp server. Unusually in this case, necessity was genuinely the mother of invention, rather than ideas just sounding cool.

Hello world!

This is the Hexifact blog, and it is mine. It’s not much else beyond that, but I hope to fill it with hacking projects and meanderings. Over the next few weeks I’ll be writing about progress on my current project: A tiny embedded ftp server. Feel free to email me about anything you see here. I suspect I’ll come to regret saying this, but I don’t get enough email to fuel my obsessive inbox checking at the moment.

I also need to use my meagre skills in inkscape to  design myself a logo. Maybe something with six PCB traces?
