Is this from one invoice? I'm curious, where did you buy from?

That was from AVNet.  The freescale (KWIKSTIK) was a giveaway from attending sessions at a recent ARM Developers Conference, and I decided to order some other things I've been lusting after as well.

Y'all don't know how lucky you are.  It used to be that "real" distributors wouldn't give a $100 order the time of day, but I've now dealt with quite a few of them (Avnet, Mouser, Digikey, Newark) with no problems to speak of...

APF Mark 1 desktop calculator from garage sale $3 USD
Looks exactly like this:

http://www.devidts.com/be-calc/ED/desk_16390.html

Cleans up nicely and all functions work.

Anyone know how old this could be? I found some hints online it's from the 1970's I remember my dad bought a handheld calculator with nixie tubes in the 1970's

Nice sign!

This is fairly recent:



The Kemani CPLD "key" which is basically a EPM3064ALC44-10N with a crystal and a couple of other parts. You can program it to ... do stuff. I haven't used it a heap, but I tend to get distracted.

My most recent purchase however is this:



That's to remind me of where Spam really started. And it also reminds me of the time in the distant past when I ate some.
Please post technical questions on the forum, not by personal message. Thanks!

Nice! Those nixies are probably worth $3 each :D

Very nice sign, crossroads, did you design it yourself?

Nick, I used to like similar kind of canned luncheon meat as a kid. But that was when we were on strictly supplied system where you get a coupon for everything like eggs, meat, soap, rice, etc. There were no free market to say buy these stuff as they were so scarce.

Mowcius, I think I will just keep the calculator in one piece. The tubes are very small, about a centimeter tall. I was amazed by tube technology that was a large part of the 20th century. One way conduction is so simple to teach when using tube rectifier example.

CrossRoads

The Logo & Font & Name is my design (Cross Roads Fencing Center, LLC), many iterations and variations over the summer of 2007 , started with the name, letters CRFC looking like strips of road laid over each other in various ways, evolving into the cleaner cloverleaf idea, for the several big interchanges  in the area. One of coaches I trained with pointed out its also a good representation of the 4 quadrants of fencing targets (high inside, high outside, low inside, low outside) with the small circles representing small circular parries, which I hadn't even thought about as I was coming up with it. Guess those years of training really sunk in!
The actual sign was made by a professional service. 1/2" thick white plastic, screwed on from behind, blue aluminum back plate & red aluminum raised frame, materlal driven by our lease requirements for signs.  We have the logo on our fencing shirts and warm up suits, and a smaller patch of the logo on our fencing jacket sleeves.

Quite the price difference, no?

Most all my orders from Asia take 10-11 days here on the west coast. Being retired now for 4 years I'm pretty patient about such things.  :D

I would encourage new people to buy from sparkfun and adafruit so the designer gets her share of profit. This is the part of open source hardware I don't like: the original designer is ripped off and had to support questions from buyers of copycat hardware.

As for myself, I've never bought a single shield :) Been doing PCB all along. You not only save money, you could find some opportunity to bring a good design to the market and make some cash too.  ;)

Same here re: shields. I just build up standalone projects with a promini plugged in as the heart of it, or a standalone uC wired in like it was a stipped down promini.
