    Swallows. Definitely swallows. African swallows.

    Sure it’s a little inconvenient, but you’ll never lose your pen again.

    My second computer (after my Radio Shack “Trash 80”) was a Heathkit “portable” computer, an 8086 processor at a whopping 4.7 MHz with two 5ΒΌ" floppy drives! Running some version of DOS, amber on black display. I remember many nights staying up to the wee hours of the morning soldering circuit boards. It was exciting, fun, educational, at times frustrating, but I really miss those old kits. As a result of that experience, I have absolutely no fear of opening my computer and adding, moving, disconnecting parts, etc. My current computer is assembled from parts (no soldering on my part, however!) and it’s fast and reliable. Sparkfun requires a little more imagination and creativity than the old well-designed Heathkit equipment, but that’s really the fun, isn’t it?

    How do you make the “DO” flicker? Can you share the hardware / code you use to do that?

No public wish lists :(
