Finished my stupid electroluminescent handbag today. People seemed to like it. I am rapidly turning into a fashion designer for Mondo 2000. Ugh.
Maxim's site has some very good tutorials, and you can now order parts directly from them online. Got myself some MAX712 chargers. Will see how they work out.
Can't post on the front page, but a friend bought this to my attention: autonomous robot water spider ballet, this weekend in Boston. From the page:
Urgh. Last night's lesson: just because your old servo can deal with a very low current on its control line doesn't mean your new, beefier servo can. Replace that resistor with something reasonable.
On that note, does anyone know where I can find resistors with the values silkscreened on the side? Being partially colorblind makes coping with color codes (especially in poor lighting) a wearying task...
You know those buttons that have that big red heart on them that say "I GAVE BLOOD TODAY"?
They're kind of morbid, aren't they? I mean, it's like wearing a nametag that says "Hi, My Name Is BOB and I opened a vein for an utter stranger this afternoon". But that's besides the point.
The point is, that if they made buttons that said "I ANNOUNCED MY RESIGNATION FROM IDTTV TODAY" on them, I'd be wearing one right now.
Only a month more and then I have nothing to do but hack. Sweet.
