I'm Jon "JonnyMac" McPhalen (formerly Williams), author of "The Spin Zone." My column, of course, is devoted to programming and designing circuits for the Parallax Propeller chip (P8X32A). Most programs are written in Spin (the high-level language) but, on occasion, we delve into Propeller Assembly (PASM), which is easier to use than most flavors of Assembly.

My schedule is hectic but I will check in from time-to-time for questions related to the projects and code presented in my column. Propeller questions that are not related to material presented in my column should be posted in the Propeller forum that his hosted by the manufacturer, Parallax.

Do feel free to submit ideas for articles -- just know that I (in fact, none of us) can accommodate all ideas.

Keep spinning and winning!
