Woo! I got my contest kit for the Microchip 16-bit Embedded Design Contest.
Ok, I got this set of 3 USB SD Card adapters from eBay seller flash-mart.
The picture shows the innards of one, and a full one. They come in multiple colors. They're nice because you can insert an SD card and put the cover back on. I'm thinking in particular about USB hard drives for the MSNTV2s with these.
Well, I got this one (a pack of 5) from eBay seller igozz.
See, this one's simple. You plug a laptop hard drive on one end, and an IDE cable and Molex power adapter on the other, and you have a working internal hard drive for your PC.
Well, I got the email today letting me know that I won this lovely LCD screen by playing Hacked Gadgets'"Name That Thing" Contest. You should go check out their site, it's got plenty of related electronics-hacking stuff.
I recently bought two Nokia LCDs from eBay seller talktalkmobiles, and each came with a free Torx-8 screwdriver.
The screens come from Nokia 3310, 3330 and 3390, and have built-in Philips PCD8544 controllers.
Ok, so.. Long story short, our Canadian Tire had a $30 Eliminator 1.8W solar panel on sale for $10 this week.
Here's the dump of /proc/cpuinfo:
Here's one of two Altoids cases that I purchased from a local discount store.. $1 each, with altoids and all. I must say, Cinnamon Altoids are stronger than the spicy candy hearts you get around Valentine's Day, but hey, it was all worth it.. For the case.
