  • Great! Thanks for the help!

  • I can’t make out the relay part number from the photos. Are they SPST, DPST or DPDT, or other? Kinda important. The Gadgeteer page doesn’t say.

  • Yup, Forrest Mims, my hero.

  • I think you could use the word cranes to describe the entire Pearl River delta if not larger portions of China. In my morning commute in the Zhuhai area (across the Pearl River from Shenzhen) I could probably count 100 cranes.
    Yes, the electronics market in Shenzhen is geek heaven. Simply amazing. My advice to anyone thinking of visiting is to make a shopping list ahead of time. The place is fantastic for making contacts with not just retailers but suppliers and manufacturers, who are of course interested in selling in larger quantities at great prices.
    Thanks Nate for the report.

No public wish lists :(
