    The 43oh Blog down?

    Still down this morning.
  3. I use OpenSCAD on Windows and Linux. Has a programming interface but a terrible editing window. I use an external editor (Notepad++) on Windows; I use the built in editor on Linux.
  4. Are you referring to the cover used on that calculator? Are you wanting just a backing that you could snap the PCB into to keep the clipped component leads from poking your hand? I could do one of those pretty easily once I have all the dimensions (board size including thickness, distance for clipped leads, etc.). I'll knock one out for you as soon as I get a kit put together. I may get ambitious and try to make a housing with keys like the one on the left in your photo. ;-)
  5. I'll try to design a case for 3D printing once I get my kits. I will, of course, send you one or two of any successful design, @@simpleavr.

    Vetinari's Clock

    My wall clock just died, so I think I'm going to try this on it. Heck, I can't make it more broken...

    Your last beer

    Oh, I have tried and enjoy several of the microbrews, but they are hard to find around here. Schlafly (a local brewery that started pretty small) has some really good seasonals. The only beer I know of that uses a nitrogen widget is Guinness, and that's Irish (the tap is special and uses nitrogen as well). It is, however, one of my favorite beers.

    Drilling mounting holes in MSP430 PCB

    With just washers, I'd worry about the screw making contact with the upper and lower layers. Hopefully these will both be ground fills, but better safe than sorry.

    Your last beer

    I have actually found a domestic (USA) beer that I like for an everyday beverage: Miller's Fortune. I prefer Guinness (from can, not bottle), but it's quite expensive here.

    small solution for detecting 120V AC as a digital input

    That board is a thing of beauty! The Army is lucky to have you.
