Some projects belong to a certain project series or product line, you can find more information about these project series or product lines here.

NOTE: Some projects or products might actually be locked for patron’s only or they might be early access, which means that those projects or products are currently only available for active patrons, but those early access projects or products will become available for all users when the ‘early access period’ has passed.

  • [TimeCapsule] COSI – Computer Oem Support Information 1.0

    Time Capsule Project
    This is a time capsule project/product from way back in my earlier programming years, you can read more about this at the information section bellow.

    COSI – Computer OEM Support Information was designed for a company where I did an internship which build, sold and repaired many consumer computers. With COSI it became super easy (and fast) for them to add their OEM Information to the computer (visible when right-clicking on My Computer->Properties).

    NOTE
    DO NOT use this software for serious purposes anymore! It does still work for some Windows versions, but please read the information bellow first! It is now just here for educative/archive/TimeCapsule purposes!

  • [TimeCapsule] TBConn (connection log utils)

    Time Capsule Project
    This is a time capsule project/product from way back in my earlier programming years, you can read more about this at the information section bellow.

    These are four little utils which logged the connection result/status of a (dail-up) tool called RASDAIL95 to a log file. My father requested me to make these utils back then for his mail server and as far as I can remember quite a few others from the community he was in back then used these utils for quite a while.

    NOTE
    Please read the information bellow first! These tools still work perfectly on older machines (most 16 and 32-bit computers) but they do not work anymore on full 64-Bit operating systems like Windows 10 for example.

  • [TimeCapsule] TBStart & TBEnd

    Time Capsule Project
    This is a time capsule project/product from way back in my earlier programming years, you can read more about this at the information section bellow.

    TBStart.exe and TBEnd.exe are two small utils I wrote when I was around 13 years old, which where used by my father and quite a few other people he knew whom used the Mercury Mail Server by David Harris. The utils I wrote where (are) two little executables which could log when a certain process had started and when it had ended/completed (by adding my utils to the batch (.bat) file when starting the program). You can read more information about this bellow.

    NOTE
    Please read the information bellow first! These tools still work perfectly on older machines (most 16 and 32-bit computers) but they do not work anymore on full 64-Bit operating systems like Windows 10 for example.

  • [TimeCapsule] TextSpec 2.0B (VB6)

    Time Capsule Project
    This is a time capsule project/product from way back in my earlier programming years, you can read more about this at the information section bellow.

    TextSpec is (was) a simple tool to do something which WordPad could not do (and still can’t in Windows 10 😳!): Count the characters, lines and words in a piece of text.

    This was something me and many of my fellow students needed for our book reports for example, so back then I made this simple and small tool to solve that problem for us.

    NOTE
    DO NOT use this software for serious purposes anymore! It is just here for educative/archive/TimeCapsule purposes! Please read the information bellow to learn more.

  • CH430/CH431 USB Serial/UART Driver

    This is a complete mirror ‘driver package’ for the CH430/CH431 USB to Serial chips.

    We use these CH430 chips on nearly all our projects and products which have USB<->Serial/UART communication/integration.

    This driver is also needed for many “Arduino®Clones” and/or “Chinese Arduino® Boards“, this is currently one of the most popular (cheap) USB to serial/UART chips used.

    IMPORTANT:
    Read the information in the product tab for detailed information regarding these drivers and the supported chips.

  • ESP Direct Adapter (for LABUNO)

    This mini “board” is officially part of the XNL LABUNO Panelized version (which is included in the XNL LABUNO Download), and it is only provided as separate ‘project’/download for reference.

    You do not need this board!
    Literally! You DO NOT need this board ;) you can achieve EXACTLY the same with two (female-female) jumper wires! Please read the additional information section for more information.

    “Multi Pack” NOTE:
    The (NON USB) XNL LABUNO download also contains a panelized version of the XNL LABUNO which includes two XNL Logic Monitors, an XNL ESP Direct Board, and an XNL WESP Board which means that it might actually be cheaper to order the panelized version (if your PCB Manufacturer allows pre-panelized boards) if you need or want all modules.

  • Sophie’s Fallout Bed (A Fallout Themed Pigeon Bed)

    I basically just wanted a Fallout themed bed for our office pigeon Sophie The Pigeon.

    So that is exactly what I have done, I designed a bed to scale for her (almost 100% with TinkerCad) inspired by a bed from the Fallout New Vegas DLC Dead Money.

    There is also a YouTube video about me building the bed here

    And Sophie has also released her own video where she shows her new bed ;) on her YouTube Channel here.

    IMPORTANT NOTE:
    This is a backup mirror to ensure that you always have access to the version/bootloader which we recommend. Make sure to check the Information Tab to see if the original author has a more recent version!

  • The Sophie The Pigeon Harness (DIY Pigeon Flight Harness)

    As some of you might have seen on our website or YouTube channel (or not), we have a rescue pigeon called Sophie, we needed a decent ‘system’ to take Sophie outside safely without her risking getting caught by predatory birds, dogs etc.

    There are several solutions like pigeon pants, parrot harnesses etc etc, but I personally didn’t find any of the available solutions suitable, comfortable and/or safe enough for Sophie.

    Therefore I decided to develop/design a Pigeon Flight Harness myself, which does enable Sophie to tag along with us on trips and does enable her to have enough exercise and sunlight outside safely. My DIY Pigeon Harness system is fairly simple and cheap to make. Please read the description and additional information bellow for more information :)

    NOTE: I have also made a very detailed YouTube Tutorial Video about making the Sophie The Pigeon Harness.

  • XNL 3D Pro GuardDog Enclosure (Ender 3 Frame Compatible)

    Please note:
    This is a legacy download which is intended for a very specific group of users, and you most likely don’t need this download ;)

    I did decided to make this legacy download available for others though, because I thought it might be useful for other ‘heavy modders’ of their Ender 3 (V1)’s

    Please do note that there is absolutely no support or whatever on or for this project/download!

  • XNL 3D Pro Mainboard Enclosure (Ender 3 mainboard housing [v1])

    Please note:
    This is officially a ‘legacy project‘, meaning it’s no longer supported or available.

    However since there are still quite a few Creality Ender 3 V1 (literally the first series) owners out there, I decided to (re-)upload this legacy housing to the new platform.

    This replacement enclosure can be used to replace the metal enclosure and perfectly fits the original 8-bit Ender 3 main board.

    This download (as of 2024) also contains a version which has no logo’s on the outside of the enclosure

  • XNL F.U.T.S. – Full USB to TTL Serial Adapter

    The XNL F.U.T.S. is ‘our answer’ to a problem we personally had quite a few times: Finding a decent USB to Serial/UART board which either just works, and/or had more than just the RX, TX and RTS available.

    The XNL F.U.T.S. stands for Full USB to TTL Serial Adapter, and it basically is a serial adapter/board which gives you a full USB serial port including ALL serial pins including: RX, TX, RTS, CTS, DTR, DSR, DCD, and RI (and of course VCC and ground).

    The XNL F.U.T.S. uses the CH340G IC, of which the drivers can be downloaded here.
