I'm pretty sure those are the glyphs to dial in the Stargate.

Do NOT go there! Their DHD was broken and I had to get help from the Asgard's.

And this is useful:



Hook it up to a transistor or diode and it will tell you what it is (roughly).



And which lead is which.



And other stuff about it.

1 Arduino nano.

Time to get playing. (Well - not just yet, it still needs to arrive. That's the problem with mail order!)

Did you try rebooting?  That's what the ITs tell me to do every time our DHD BSoD.  Those Asgards gave me the willies... all sci-fi aliens do.

On another note...
2 Duemilanoves (328)
2 Protoshields
1 Motorshield

Going to build a robot out of one (haven't build one since I was a kid with a basic stamp homework board) and the other is just to play around with.

Following my guitar purchase earlier in this thread I've ordered some bits to make a metronome (555 timer, pot, speaker etc). First time I'll have done anything like this without an arduino in the middle.

Oops, you made your nano explode!? How did you manage that  :D ?


My latest purchase was 30 1K resistors for my LED cube, and two (big) plants to make my desk look slightly better. It also serves as a way to decide when I need to tidy my desk (:() - if the plants have disapeared, I need to tidy my desk and find them again! :)

That seems like a great product, and I plan on buying one soon (and probably their LCR meter, too); I have more than a few semiconductors that I have no idea what they are, either due to not being able to find a datasheet, or them not having any markings on the case (or house markings). Thanks for posting this!
I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.

Have you heard of the Tactile Metronome?

I hadn't, no.  Interesting stuff, shame they're out of stock of the kits.

I was making it manipulate RPM for the fan in my computer powersupply, and had to remove it to do something else... and didn't power down the computer first, because "hell, I am carefull!" so one wire jumped out and 12v was randomly thrown at various pins and parts, and a handfull of parts then had a hole in them, and didn't smell that nice...

Ah... 12 volts into the board. Oops!
I have burned several components by putting too much power through them. They absoloutely stink! (It is also good fun breaking them. I purposely broke several (cheap) components for a bit of excitement and fun.  ]:D Although it is entertaining, the horrible smell has stopped me doing it again).

I hope not to do the same thing again soon... but I probably will, as I won't power down most things while putting things off/putting things on :P

It's all open source under Creative Commons.  You said you were already building a metronome plus now you put an Arduino in the middle!  Who doesn't love that?!  Just some food for thought if you want more usability out of it.  The PCB wont be as pretty, but that's about it.
