It has begun! I officially started full-time on December 1st, and then shortly after went on vacation. I had started part-time around mid-November getting acquainted with everyone on the project and ordering my first development board. I ordered a BeagleBoard rev. C4 to get started. I quickly discovered that plugging and unplugging all the cables put them under a lot of stress, so, I created a very high-tech way of mounting the BeagleBoard with strain-relief cable ties on the serial plug. Yes, that is a double layer of cardboard with anti-stat foam under the board. Laugh all you want, it is light-weight, sturdy and very inexpensive. Here it is, isn’t it cute?
