 Computers for Albatrosses

O'Reilly tells us about building a datalogger to track Albatrosses.

"When David said he needed a datalogger, immediately visions of HC11-based computers, with separate RAM and ROM, danced in my head. He said that he wanted it small. No problem, I thought. HC11 computers are small, ranging in size from a playing card to a paperback novel, depending on the application. "I want to put it on a bird," he said. "You want to what?" I replied."
