Since I make a living doing mostly analog stuff, digital is my dark
That doesn't mean that I can't recognize an application that cries out
for a digital solution though. My first foray into the digital realm was a
device to measure the surface area of bundles of wood venire and print a sticker
for the bundle along with a totalized shipping document for a pallet full. I
used a MicroMint 68HC11 board to interface with the measuring head and an Atari
800 to do the printing and totalizing. The cost for everything I put together
was less than the cost to replace the sticker printer alone on the original
imported machine. Price was the only thing the buyer was concerned with. It
was costing him an arm and a leg to fly a technician in from France for every
little thing that went wrong with the original.
