With ToorCon 14 coming up, I decided to have several GIMME PCBs made to give away. If you see me at the con this weekend and would like one, just ask. I also took it upon myself to make some GoodFET41 boards since Travis won't be around being his usual Johnny Appleseed of open source hardware. Plus, I will have a GIMME and GoodFET available to borrow, so bring that IM-Me that has been sitting in a drawer with factory firmware!

Programming Pink Pagers in Style
spectrum analyzer application or any other firmware onto an IM-Me by simply removing the batteries and pressing the GIMME against the test points while the attached GoodFET does all the tricky stuff. GIMME is designed with KiCad. You can find the design files in the contrib directory of the GoodFET repo.Real Men Carry Pink Pagers. It was probably the most fun I've ever had giving a talk at a hacker con. Maybe it was the song. Maybe it was the bourbon in pink shot glasses. Maybe it was the total lack of preparation resulting from Travis injuring himself the day before. Maybe it was the ridiculous T-shirt Nick DePetrillo made me wear. (I still haven't figured out how to get him back. I don't believe it is possible to embarrass the man.)
