    Energy Drinks

    1 cup fresh ground coffee in a 3 cup french press w/ boiling water for 10 minutes. Fill monster sized mug 1/2. Make 6 shots espresso, add to mug. Dump in 1/2 cup sugar, [four flavored creamers] or [powder creamer to taste/color of choice], cap off with more from press. Stir, drink, go to bed thirty minutes later and sleep like a baby Considering my intake of caffeine and sugar and general dietary choices, I'm not effected at all by this stuff... a pity.

    Critter Catcher - Live Trap with a Brain

    <mildly unrelated> http://www.rw-designer.com/picture-resize works great for reducing image file size, without too much loss, even works for drag-drop of multiple files all at once. </mildly unrelated>

    Ideas for a 43oh MSP430 badge.

    Why not use two boards? Inset SMD leds and solder on the back side of a thicker rear board the same shape as a front board. The front board is thin, has black mask and white lettering. Could even cap touch the front board to change the leds on the back. If there's a small space in there and some diffusion, it would illuminate the letters

    Is it just me or tonight TI doubled LaunchPad price?

    I don't see how this price increase did jack shit for TI as Mouser is at $12.80, Digikey is at 10.37, and Newark is at $10. Shipping on top of all of them... So far I think the only place I've seen left to get them at the old price (and -2 cents) is the redirect from Arrow, Chip1Stop but they only have ~130 left (and really only Japan or nearby... Check their shipping rates :-) rofl ). So when TI will still be the cheapest distributor of these and people buy... from TI... where is the gain in all of this? Still looks/feels like screwing over the community when everyone prices the same or higher as TI does. Why would I buy from anyone else and pay shipping when TI is a FLAT $10? I'm not even sure how Mouser figures out it's pricing, but that's f'n stupid. </rant>

    $40? wtf? That's lame, largely, in comparison to REAL competition.

    In the $10 range you might as well as throw an ARM at it and ST and Freescale already beat TI for the price range/features. http://www.newark.com/stmicroelectronics/stm32f0discovery/eval-board-cortex-m0-stm32f0/dp/94T6483 http://www.newark.com/freescale-semiconductor/frdm-kl25z/eval-brd-kinetis-kl25z-freescale/dp/28W5033?in_merch=Popular%20Products for example...
