FYI, apparently there's been some removal of certain threads on AVR
Freaks. The person who said the threads were removed has their email
host the same as the website that shows making your own JTAG ICE. I'm
assuming that the threads were concerning this. Remember that the AVR
Freaks webmaster, Eivind Sivertsen, works for Atmel. So I'm sure that
they're a little sensitive to this.

Says it all really, when stuff gets removed from a site there's got to be something suspect. avrfreaks.com is sponsored by Atmel but it's news to me that the webmaster is an employee. No such issues with avr1.org of course!

IIRC, that's what the FreeICE project was all about. However, Ted
Roth said that he hasn't seen much activity on the project recently.
If anybody wants to help out, that'd be great.

In my spare time, ha ha, I do plan on working towards such goals. I find it very annoying that Atmel consider the debug JTAG instructions "private", but do of course note that they are not licenced in any way.
