I'm gonna cheat and use 2 two pictures (maybe I'll get a real camera today too).... but my Sunday will be cleaning up this mess since my latest project is done.

What mess?

Jeff K

I knew that was coming...

I guess there is plenty of room to move the breadboard on top of those red bins.

@Jeff:

I have that exact same drawer storage thingy (on the top right of the picture);  Of course, I only have one :P

You get it at Home Depot?  That's where I got mine ;D!

Jeff K

@TchnclFl

I actually got them at Menards. No Home Depot close by.  We have a Lowes but their selection of storage thingy's suck.

FYI... they are on sale for $10 this weekend at Menards.  I picked up 2 more yesterday and will probably get 2 more today.  They finally have the right dividers in stock at my local store so I decided to stock up on those too.  The red bins.. $0.50 each plus a full rebate so they are free this weekend.

Unfortunately, I've never even heard of Menards, so I doubt I have one close by :P.  I'll ask around though.

This sums up my day though:

Playing with windows 7 on my touch screen. Only single touch though :(

My Sunday is now over, and I have to admit that I made other things than just watching movies all day...

The rest of the day was spend optimizing old sketches and messing a bit more around with a TIP102 driving a 250kg electro magnet with 12V through the arduino's option for an external power supply.

Those drawers are made by "Stack-On"; I have found it best and easiest to get them (and the dividers) thru Amazon vendors.

My Sunday is going pretty lazy; I'm thinking about heading out of here to check out some Goodwills nearby (see if I can snag a few more Polaroid cameras with sonars!). Later I have to continue/finish sorting about 10 gig of downloaded crap (its sitting in my /home directory eating space, and I need to sort it to my new "downloads" pocket hard drive and my fileserver - gah).

Other than that, not doing much...

:)
I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.

Usually i wake up late ~ 11 o'clock. Then eat, listen to radio´s TOP 20 [ch7743]usic, then clean house, go for a bike-ride ~ 50 - 60 km usually, in the evening watch tv, visit Arduino forum, sometimes watch SouthPark / The Simpsons, ... thats all.

This was my Sunday:



but because I'm a gadget freak it was also this:



Robomower does the back lawn while I do the front...

Brilliant.

How well does it avoid the garden and keep on the lawn? Had it mowing over any plants yet?

Andrew

You string a perimeter wire around the edge of the area you want mowing and a little box sends a pulsed signal through it which the mower detects and avoids. So as long as you put the wire in the right place it cuts the grass not plants. It also has bumper sensors so if it runs into a bird bath or something it reverses direction. We've had it for 6 or 7 years now and I still stand at the window watching it sometimes - it's fascinating watching a robot mow your lawn for you.

Yeah I was just wondering if you had had any issues with it but I presume from that the answer is no.
