Welcome to Fruit of the Shed

Great things have been accomplished by people in sheds… Alan Turing, Marie Curie, Barnes Wallace, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates… Share your shed greatness with others here. FruitOfTheShed is a public open space to aggregate and share shed brilliance; code snippets, functions, novel circuits ideas. Show your ingenuity to the world and let others critique your work in the spirit of friendly altruism.

Select your area of expertise/interest by selecting the namespace on the left hand sidebar.

Feel free to have a good rifle through the contributions and enjoy your stay. You can browse the work with no restrictions. You can use what you like but please contact the Original Poster if you want to use the their contribution commercially, just to check that's OK - it might be nice to let them know you are using it anyway.

Please maintain a friendly approach, egos and attitudes should be left outside - we ALL began as something else. Don't post anything offensive, mind your language and play nice - if you wouldn't want your mum seeing you behave a certain way, it doesn't belong here either.

History and Acknowledgements

The Fruit of the Shed (FotS) was originally created by TBS forum member @CaptainBoing (Andrew) based on ScrewTurn Wiki. He hosted on his company's window server for nearly eight years as a repository of code and snippets for all things MMBasic (and a few other bits too). Recently ill health has prevented him from continuing. His contributions were many through FotS –always apt and often ingenious. Many TBS members looked at FotS, it is a very valuable resource and his efforts are appreciated.

Andrew made the contents available and the information is now re homed on DokuWiki which is still currently supported and can also be hosted on linux, which considerably widens the options for hosting it.


FotS is not a forum as such. You will not find much activity here. The Back Shed forum is where all the activity takes place and where to ask questions.
FotS is used to:
Document a completed project and give its background. e.g. Backpack Curve Tracer
Provide an index to various threads in the TBS. e.g. Armmite F4 hardware.
Publish tips,hints summaries.
