Your latest purchase

That actually looks good!

Or maybe I'm just hungry.


So I [u]just[/u] [u]purchased[/u] some golden beets, sliced em, and roasted them with a bit of salt, pepper and olive oil:

We like beets!

COSTCO here is selling beet chips (100% beets, dehydrated), they are great!

Okay that's main course, whats for entreeee and dessert? Any horses doovers? And do we need to bring a bottle? Cab sav or Chardonay, bottle of fizzy over sugared drink? Tom... :)

I was under the impression Chris was suppling the Tequila and we only had to bring our better halves. :)

If yall show up with any kind of bottle, the beets are on me!

ps, Larry, that'll work too!

Hi,
I was trawling ebay and found the old favourite MB102 protoboard.
NOW they are switchable between 0, 3.3 and 5V… WOW… :o :o :o

Tom… :slight_smile:

The 0v settng will be particularly useful. I have been waiting for that for a long time. At last I will be able to avoid short circuits.

I believe they have a version where all rows/columns are common.

Especially good for star grounding circuits.

No good for what I want. I need the 9V and 12V super version.

Put them in series…

My most recent purchase was a 11" build your own pizza.

Mmmmm. Pizza ...

I just bought this SparkX thing from Sparkfun. It's called an Atto84, and is kinda like a digispark, but with an ATTiny94 instead of an 85. Probably not as useful as a regular Tiny84, but pretty cool nonetheless.

I have never been convinced of the value of boards like that because it is not small enough for some purposes yet seems a lot more trouble than a regular Uno.

My preferred small Arduino is a naked Attiny 1634 - nearly as powerful as an Atmega 328 - and maybe only 33% of the size of the Atto84

Hi,
This turned up in my mailbox from ebay the other day, I could not resist the price and now having used it with software, its basic preformance.

I came with DuPont leads and USB lead.
I’m using Pulseview software which works really well.

I have the same logic analyser and love it. Don't really need a scope, anymore, for most things. And a scope won't have all of those nice decoders that are so handy (mainly, for me, uart, I2C, SPI).

I bought the more expensive Sparkfun version in December in the hope that they at least contribute part of the money to Saleae.

I'm sure both are clones.

https://sigrok.org/ supports these analyzers too. :)

Cost me 28 bucks to drop 3.7v down to 3.0v.... I feel robbed. (LDO, caps, SOT-23 breakout board)

But at least it works!

I tried a 3.3v zenner diode but the voltage was still too high at 3.3v... (guess the temperature sensor on the weather station is calibrated to 3v, the 3.3v resulted in a temperature reading 4-7 degrees F too high.

Coulda just gotten a 3v zenner diode i reckon...

Would this have helped, AliExpress.
