Thank you Ian Lesnet

A little over a year ago [Ian Lesnet] joined our hacking team and began cranking out some of the best original how-tos Hack a Day has ever offered. You may remember our popular web server on a business card from last fall and we’re sure everyone is familiar with the Bus Pirate (yes, they’re still on schedule).

It’s a year later and he’s found himself with less time to contribute. [Ian] is stepping down from blogging at Hack a Day, but you’ll find him right where he started: in the comments. You can also reach him directly on [Ian] will be continuing to develop the Bus Pirate. You’ll find the latest info on the Bus Pirate’s Google Code page. He’s also posted a guide to the on-board pull-up resistors as well as a self-test guide that uses the new v2.0 firmware to confirm your Bus Pirate is working.

[Ian]‘s contributions will be greatly missed. We’re always excited when we add contributors of his caliber to our crew.

    True… guess a lot of people will keep on reading his posts, whether it’s on the HaD or on his personal site…

    Thanks for all your efforts Ian, and good to hear you’ll still be working on the bus pirate :)

  3. bobdole says:

    putting someones name in square brackets hasn’t worked for at least a year now… I figured you’d either fix this or stop doing it by now.

    anyways, generic positive comment about [ian].

    Thanks a lot ian, without you maybe the bus pirate wouldn’t have been possible, and all that it is today. (and all the how-tos also of course…)

    best of luck in your future endeavours !

    I wrote something long and sentimental, but I think the spam filter ate it. Thanks for the comments! It’s been great writing for you. Feel free to ask support questions for any of my projects at my contact page.
