That latest Rush album, Clockwork Angels, is strongly influenced by steampunk. It's pretty good.

A lupe (or loupe) for magnifying:



The clear sides let light in, and keep the target the correct distance away. This shows the detail on a LM358 chip:

I need one of those!  Those 0.1" ceramic caps and SMT parts can be hard to read.

I had a loupe prior to getting into electronics.  They used to be very useful for slides and negatives when used with a light box.  Haven't had to use it for that purpose for 10 years so it's now in the electronics lab.
I have only come here seeking knowledge. Things they would not teach me of in college.

I was shopping for solid-state disk drives online. What do you think of this one?

Given the picture of the internals I'd be a bit nervous making a purchase.  They seem to have a misunderstanding regarding the word "solid-state".

There are no jelly wobbly bits .... that makes it solid, see!

Check warranty terms. See if they have a factory warranty. What they had last time I bought was a dealer warranty. Once of that was enough for me. The company won't back their own $#!+3 directly.

My experience with Seagate laptop drives that have a platter: they are noisy; they run hot.

Ethernet shield and LM35.... I can now see the house temp from work. Very cool.

Also recently bought 2x Wixels, wireless usb control of robot, quite nifty and dead simple.

And got a distance sensor and Sparkfun line follower sensors, not deployed yet.
