  1. I'm still impressed :-) (Thank you mostly to @@bluehash for shipping them though)
  2. Did you hand-solder those chips? That's impressive none the less. I haven't' done anything with my extra PCB's. (Was thinking to maybe make a geeky Christmas wreath).
  3. It's not a new concept that has been explored. Rice University actually has a port of Python on the Stellaris LM3S microcontrollers. : http://embeddedpython.org/index.php?title=The_Owl_Embedded_Python_System it would be interesting to see if they could further shrink the python overhead to work on smaller memory sizes.
  4. That's so much better than the 9.99 I was paying at adafruit :-) thank you!
  5. LOL, no problem. the conference is winding down, but @@adrianF and Dung had headed home and it's just me and my University team now.
  6. I know it's super last minute, but @@adrianF, Dung and I are in Atlanta for the ASEE conference... and if anyone is in the area (e.g. @@JWoodrell , you came to mind) , we would love to take you for a drink!
  7. @spirillis You are amazing. I have been so overwhelmed with getting things going for this huge education show we are doing in Atlanta, when I came in and saw your package on my desk. I opened it and immediately loved the FTDI breakout board , but what I REALLY REALLY REALLY love (I can't stress that enough here) is the adapter board you made! Not sure if I'm just late to finding out about it until that moment it came out of the envelope, but you have made my ENTIRE week. I don't have time yet to write the blog post I need to about LaunchPad + Beaglebone in Education, but your "BoosterPack Cape Adapter" fits perfectly! I was so psyched that I actually rescheduled a in person meeting to be on the phone so I could solder the headers on and try it out Anyways, THANK you for sending me a few samples and when I get back from ASEE, I hope to have the post out on the e2e blog roll so you can see how your board fits in with all of the other University tools! And yes, I will be sharing them around the office! Untitled by laraswanland, on Flickr (rest of the photos: )
  8. I love this post so much! I can't wait to see when you post it on the TI Forums. This is a great project for students :-) Thank you so much for sharing (and your awesome photos).
  9. I'm having issues with posting things (chalk it up to the fact I'm slightly special needs when it comes to using Internet Explorer), but Mike at US Water Rockets sent me this video that I thought was a neat solution to the male headers! http://www.uswaterrockets.com/MSP430/horizontal_stabilizer/project.htm
  10. Not sure what you mean by reasonable, but this post may help you : http://e2e.ti.com/support/microcontrollers/msp430/f/166/t/42199.aspx
  11. It's the half sized plus https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11317 is where I got mine
  12. absolutely :-) this is why we share designs, so it gets improved. Nice work and thank you again!
  13. @@Fred I absolutely love the black and grabbed a red breadboard to try it out. It feels a little "dark side" , which is okay with me
  14. Here's Jason's (on Twitter @Jadon) video from Design West, you do have to register, but it's a presentation. https://event.on24.com/eventRegistration/EventLobbyServlet?target=registration.jsp&eventid=605328&sessionid=1&key=DD444ABA182A28C9A98D4B4395B413C9&sourcepage=register
  15. It is, if you ever get down to Texas, put CircuitCo on your list to tour. They are super open to have people come and visit and they are only 3 miles from TI. Kenneth Finnegan did a blog post on his tour: http://blog.thelifeofkenneth.com/2012/08/tour-of-circuitco-pcb-solutions.html
