      Hi John,
      I sent you info via email. Let me know of any questions.
      You have me by a few years but keep learning, it keeps your mind young.

  2. Hi … came across this article:

    Very interested in any SVG graphics, etc., you have that can be used with Explaindio!

      I sent you a link to download them.

  4. I would love to get a copy of the electronics SVG/PNG library for use with Explaindio as well as a copy of the library you created from the SVG’s in

    I am new to Explaindio but am delving into it quite heavily.

    Thanks so much!!!

    Hi, I also use Explaindio and saw that you are offering a library of SVG images. Is this something you are giving away or is there a purchase price?

    Hi Earl,

    Do you remember your post about the ATmega328 with “two Identities”? Well it seems history has repeated itself! I’ve recently designed and assembled my own ATmega328 development board and tried to program the chip using the Arduino IDE, however despite correctly configuring my boards.txt file, the bootloader (over USB-Serial) reported that the signature of my chip was that of the 328p, not of the 328. As we both discovered, the Arduino bootloader ‘fakes’ the signature of the chip, or rather, the signature of the chip is hardcoded into the bootloader when it is compiled! I can only assume it does this because the actual signature stored on the chip is inaccessible over UART. To properly fix this, I’ve recompiled the bootloader with the signature for the 328 instead of the 328p (i.e. 0x1E9514 instead of 0x1E950F). If for whatever reason you may want this bootloader please reply to this comment. Anyway, thanks to your post I was able to confirm my suspicions about the arduino bootloader and realise my goal of creating an arduino-compatible development board. Keep up the good work!

      You are welcome! It is always interesting and fun that people are finding things of interest here.

    Hi Earl:
    Looked at your link about explaindio -python and svg. I am keen to look at it.

      • earl on July 3, 2020 at 7:51 am

      That version of explaindo is very very old now. I don’t think that version works anymore. However, I will email you the link to download the things I mention in the post. Be sure to check your SPAM folder, sometimes my emails end up there.
