Twelve IN-12 nixie tubes, sockets and 74141 ICs and 20 IN-35 nixies.

Yeah.  I guess it's the difference between having more money than time, or having more time than money.

Well buying lots of parts can change that round  ;D


1300 components from Futurlec and a TI Chronos. I must say that this is the coolest watch ever.


Picked it up for £80 ;)

Picked up another big batch of surplus parts from Apache Reclamation today:

 * some Figaro gas sensors (not sure what kind, I have an email in to Figaro)
 * several motors (DC, one stepper)
 * a couple of 12VDC fluid pumps
 * some heatsinks (for some reason, finding nice multiwatt-15 heatsinks isn't easy; the closest I came was some expensive beast from SparkFun, and something from Digikey - found ones at ARE for 15 cents each)
 * some MJ12005 NPN power transistors
 * a bunch of TO-3 insulators (plastic and mica - at least 200 or so)
 * LM350K TO-3 3A adjustable voltage regulators
 * a 555 (it looked lonely)
 * a Motorola RTL JK flip-flop (still in-package!) for my antique collection
 * some microswitches
 * some trapped-ball tilt switches

Plus a variety of 74xxx parts (most LS):

 * 74LS245
 * 74LS253
 * 74HC943 (woohoo - 300 baud modem!)
 * 74LS168
 * 74LS14
 * LM337
 * LM565
 * ADG412BN

All-in-all, some fun stuff; the motors were kinda on the more expensive side of things ($10.00 each for some), but the components were only about $1.00 each on average. Plus there were a few "gives" (like the gas sensors). It was a good day.

Oh - and I went to Goodwill and got a small New Bright R/C truck ($3.00), and two ATA100 3.5" removable drive docks ($3.00 each - still in shrink wrap).


/I've got problems... ;D
I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.

::) Shopping addict!
Sorry God members, I'm an atheist.


I've got problems...

Not at all, you got so much stuff that you can build what ever you want... no problems at all ;)

Would be the same to ask an alcoholic if he had an alcohol problem... "No, I got plenty" ;)

I just got this brand new 3.5" VIA Eden ESP6000 Micro Module for free together with a 500MB RAM module :-)

It has a 1GHz CPU onboard.




That's nice! What're you using it for Thansen?

That's it, I really don't know :-)

Maybe a small webserver, although I already have a webserver in my NAS (Synology DS107+) but it's pretty slow, maybe a server with this board are a bit faster.

I also got a Optrex LCD Panel T-51750GD065J-FW-ADN
It's a 6,5" LCD 640x480 But it's without controller, anybody know anything about that?
It would be nice if I could purchase a seperate controller and use it with the Via Eden bord :-)
According to the datasheet the interface is a 18-bit parallel data transfer (6-bit / color)

Any suggestions?
