  • My brother-in-law is a mechanic so when we talk electronics I try to put things in automotive terms. A few examples: decoupling capacitors on a power supply are like shocks that smooth out a rough "voltage road". A diode after a solar panel prevents electrons from flowing in the wrong direction, just like the check valve between the fuel tank and the engine.

  • You left me with a cliff hanger! Why do Nintendo games stop working over time?

  • "Coming into the final stretch it's The Mad Hatter, followed by Ms. Legs Don't Fit, followed by Sensei Sideburns, and bringing up the rear it's Lloyd driving an 84 Sheepdog"

  • I love the 434MHz transmitter and receiver. The walkthrough tutorial helped me to have a wireless link up and running in 10 minutes between two Atmega328 microcontrollers. This is a very inexpensive way to set up a wireless connection.

No public wish lists :(
