90 hacker friendly boards

Our New Year’s guide to hacker-friendly single board computers turned up 90 boards, ranging from powerful media playing rigs to power-sipping IoT platforms.

My first Schematic in decades !!!!

An AC power control system powered by #ESP8266 micro-controller, a relay module and a AC relay for monitoring state of the controlled circuit. Done in #EagleCAD on my Linux Mint machine.  Will do write up next week.
