I read about a random number generator somewhere, that used a lava lamp and a camera. The number was generated by the positions, shapes and sizes of the blobs. That would be cool. Wouldn't even need to be a camera - perhaps just put light detectors all over the glass surface.

Cool! Thanks for the link West. (karmal added)

I admire the marketing guys that conjure up those products. I don't think I have ever come across anyone who actually needed more than 3 of the types in the collection - and then only after keeping it for years and running out of one type within 3 weeks :)
those are some fine glands...
Some MBR0520L to see if i can actually work with stuff that small. I ordered some from ebay, a week or two ago. I've no idea what they sent, nor did they, they wouldn't send the correct items as advertised, so I got my money back, and ordered via Amazon, and they are the correct diodes. 40 from a seller on Amazon was cheaper than via Farnel incl. postage. I only need a few, most will be dropped on the floor, I expect. I've been with ebay for years, don't buy much, but recently I've had 3 out of six orders go bad, and I try to assess the quality of the supplier, not just their star ratings.
Zoo expansion, hardware this time.
Microchip offered free shipping and a 50% discount on the Atmega4809 Curiosity Nano.
Hi Whandalll, The curiosity nano looks interesting, particularly if you need a debugger. Have you used the microchip ide with it, I presume the debugging side of it would not work with arduino ide, although I think it has a boot-loader installed. so may be programmable via arduino ide (Or is this a new purchase to try it out, - with the discount it's a reasonable price, but cheap for development kit.)
Exactly these two are still in the mail, I had no chance to play with them yet.
