    SugarAddict got a reaction from pine in $4.30 LCD Booster - Sold Out

    [20:39:03] <Rickta59> when did you make those lcd screens SugarAddict ?
    [20:39:15] <Rickta59> that has to be like 2 years ago no?
    [20:39:22] <SugarAddict> yes
    [20:39:43] <SugarAddict> Feels like forever ago
    [20:39:44] <SugarAddict> lol
    [20:39:48] <Rickta59> it does
    [20:40:00] <Rickta59> and I thought I was a procrastinator : )
    [20:40:09] <SugarAddict> ?
    [20:40:17] <SugarAddict> ohhh
    [20:40:20] <SugarAddict> had to look up
    [20:40:33] <Rickta59> i was quoting the guy on the forum
    [20:40:35] <SugarAddict> haha, 2 years later and a dollar found
    [20:40:38] <Rickta59> he just opened up your lcd
    [20:40:40] <Rickta59> and found the dollar
    [20:40:42] <Rickta59> yeah
    [20:41:07] <SugarAddict> I thought that was a pretty cool way to give people a random discount
    [20:41:27] <Rickta59> it was, we miss your Daddy Warbucks spirit
     
    Shocking... but cool.  I should make something again... Maybe in a few months I'll figure something out to do... Come home burned out and don't want to do anything but zone out.

    SugarAddict got a reaction from bluehash in 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

    SugarAddict got a reaction from ike in 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.

    I just set this up in the garage... after owning it for 2-3 weeks :-X (busy busy busy)... It worked amazing on the first test.  Found the depth I'll use pretty easily.  Now to just thread two holes in some spare delrin I've got and make the guide bar solid so there isn't that stupid hole in it.

    Even better... it's slightly LaunchPad coloured :-)

    SugarAddict got a reaction from jsolarski in Tis the season for divinity   
    I can make this recipe all year round... I use corn syrup from restaurant supply shops, it's a LOT thicker than that stuff you get in the grocery store.. and it comes in 5 gallon buckets (43 DE).
     
    plenty of wax paper on the counter top near the mixing area
    3 1/2 cups sugar
    2/3 cup water
    2/3 cup corn syrup
    2 or 3 egg whites (I tend to do this one by experience... If you use eggs much you'll notice some have more egg white than others. If you get a lot of egg white out of 2 eggs, that's "ok", if you get some but not a lot... use 3, if you're not sure, use 3.)
    touch of salt (I do two twists on the salt grinder with a very fine setting)
     
    Bring corn syrup, water, and sugar to a boil, 250
