  1. I use a heavy duty paper guillotine that I bought for $5 from a yard sale. It's good for 1.6mm.
  2. That's a good tip. I've seen a dedicated chip for PT100s before but the package was not suitable for hand soldering.
  3. Market is unlocked, please add your products!
  4. There's also a BeagleBone market which should be unlocked by the time you read this: https://www.tindie.com/m/BeagleBone/

    Tindie Market

    Let's start a Tindie market for makers to sell their capes and BB add-ons. Sign up here: https://www.tindie.com/m/BeagleBone/
  6. Digikey Product Module with audio. Might be worth a look. http://www.digikey.com/PTM/IndividualPTM.page?WT.z_sm_link=Twitter_TI_PTM_0408&site=us〈=en&ptm=30431
  7. It looks just unbelieveably cool.
  8. You can probably used fixed point arithmetic instead of floating point with improved speed and accuracy, but at the expense of slightly more complex code. I have done this for e.g. PID temperature control. The libraries I am familiar with are templated C++ (i.e. Energia friendly) but you can probably search around for something open source and usable in C if that's preferable to you.

    Another possibility with these magnets (4mm diameter) is to swage a little bit of copper brake fluid tube and solder them inside. That should give a pretty solid connection.

    There goes my $0.99

    I could tell you but since it involves violating somebody's patent, I would obviously have to kill you. Oh go on then, you just stick it on a big lump of iron before soldering. http://www.google.pl/patents/US20090242617

    Aha. Both valid points. I have researched the materials science and come up with a trick. Unfortunately it might not work and I have $0.99 invested in the magnets.

    Lots of little Neodymium magnets. I am experimenting with soldering the little bastards for making electrical snap connectors.
  14. Wait... postage is quicker from USA to Australia than USA to Canada?
  15. Wireless is certainly the way forward with this. I am planning to interface with NRF24L01 on a boosterpack.
  16. I held out all of 24 hours before dragging out the wallet. No willpower.
  17. This one maybe? http://www.ebay.com/itm/AC-100V-240V-Converter-Adapter-DC-5V-8A-40W-Power-Supply-Charger-DC-5-5mm-New-/350794968653?pt=US_Server_Power_Supplies&hash=item51ad026e4d
  18. ... wrought iron rings attached to the walls, blood stained chopping block, bottomless pit...
  19. Mine is off white with a bright white ceiling, but I have a lot of natural light. It's about 3mx3m. Plain white in a small room makes it seem boxy and under fluorescent lighting the corners look grey. I would recommend a stronger wall colour. It will also show less dirt and help cover imperfections in the surface. Work rooms are high traffic so ideally you want at least semi gloss finish for durability. Ceiling can be matt white.

    I'm glad it got there eventually - both ways across the Pacific and the American continent
  21. I got an email about this today - you can order up to 2 Tiva Connected LPs at $19.99 each. Very tempting! https://estore.ti.com/tiva-connected-launchpad.aspx?DCMP=mcu-tivc-ek-tm4c129xl-en&HQS=mcu-tivc-ek-tm4c129xl-em-es-en
  22. @@greg I would love one, and I am also happy to distribute to folks in the USA.
