Canon a3000 to run chdk...
Pink pogo plug.  Will it talk to an Arduino?

A Lada Niva, to charge a big dry batt driving by an Arduino.

Note; the Niva will be drive by me 'cause it's too simple for Ardiuno...

Looks like its a car:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lada_Niva

You know, a russian "Lada" - one of the biggest POS cars this side of a Yugo; to be honest, I don't really know that for sure; in fact, I would say that every car has a bad reputation, and just the other week I saw a nice Yugo putting down the street - shocked me to see it, TBH - but no smoke, no strange noises, and it looked to be in great condition.

Lada's are probably the same. They just likely have a "bad reputation" because they are a mass-production on-the-cheap get-me-from-point-a-to-b kind of car. Nothing to impress people with, just does the job. You know - what a sane person drives (instead of something to impress others with for one reason or another).

Then again, they might really be POS...

:D

EDIT: Hmm - looking at the wiki article again, it looks like this Lada is a better vehicle than your "standard" Lada - off road capability, 4WD - heck, now I want one (that and a Unimog); it looks to be quite fun! :)
I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.

A Lada Niva is a no frills 4x4 as you found out. Very low tech but they can be a lot of fun.
And Mercede Unimog that's a whole different league, I think they are the best "off the shelf" offroad vehicle available. I want one as well since I was a kid.

THIS is a no-frills 4x4...

That Lada Niva is a Cadillac by comparison.

Howdja pull that off?! Nice set, though! I want that kind of deal on the GI Joe complete set (at $150.00, I can't see myself spending that kind of money on cartoons from my youth)...

1 full reel (5000 pcs) of 1k 0603 resistors - ebay of course. I don't know if I will use all of them during my lifetime, but it was almost cheaper than getting 100 pcs locally.

Speaking of ebay and electronic components...

The same seller also has 100nF ceramic capacitors of the kind I use in my projects, only the date-code on the reel is something like 1993. I figured that old age doesn't matter with resistors, but what about ceramic caps? I certainly wouldn't buy electrolytic caps that are from the last century.

• There's absolutely NO excuse for not having an ISP!
• Your AVR needs a brain surgery? Use the online FUSE calculator.
My projects: RGB LED matrix, RGB LED ring, various ATtiny gadgets...
• Microsoft is not the answer. It is the question, and the answer is NO!

I've upgraded my Canon IXUS 75, (sniff, damaged the CCD!) to a Canon PowerShot SX150 IS, AUS$208 @Dick Smith.
Got CHDK up and running, shot this last night.

As for the Lada Niva, OMFG!

I'll scan some photo's of what was left of the gearbox, transfer case of a Niva I had to rebuild.
What a POS, right up there with Zetor tractors!
From a country where every thing looks like it was made in the "Glorious Red Tractor Factor" it was all so flimsy.

Just a stroke of luck. I have had a BN $50 gift card since about 6 months ago, thanks to arduino (I was awarded best demonstration for a teaching apparatus I made with arduino). I've been trying to spend it for the past months with no luck. Nothing BN sells was worth my money. And last week I received a BN email as usual and it says select DVDs at up to 50% off. It didn't click but just a few days ago I realized I should look at their DVDs, and transformers were on sale at $49 and that was the last day of the sale. So I combined it with another BN gift card, which I got from entertaining 100 kids with physics for a whole day. Bingo! The sale is over now and I'm so happy to see the price back up again  ;)

for once in like 3 years goodwill did not suck

I got a darn near new dell keyboard for the wife (though worth a buck I paid 3) and a 40 gig tivo, which I am in the process of tossing 500 or more gigs into, slapping debian on, and using it as a NAS

so for 10 bucks overall not bad ... worst case I can use the disk out of the tivo in my bench machine which is only running a ata33 20 gig laptop drive ATM

Hey, I have no experience with them, but this looks like a dang good deal.. Looks like the one I ordered, I would assume they are basically the same...  USB ISP programmer for four bucks shipped.

Here's something else interesting, worth the price for wall wart and parts.. I got a couple... Two VOIP routers for a buck, delivered...

When the testing is complete there will be... cake.
