Just revived my inner hacker. Visited the SparkFun HQ for local delivery of my first order, and it has launched me into hackerdom...

Have * Arduino Uno Rev3 * Breadboard Arduino's * various shields

  • tres cool. the execution of a portable, stowable logger concept with a simple UI is well done.

  • BTW, I even took some photos of the process. I could post them somewhere (where?, I don't know) if others would find it useful...

  • PLEASE READ THE INFO IN THIS THREAD ABOVE ABOUT THE ISSUE WITH THE TMP36 SENSOR

    Thanks to the member who posted yesterday! I was wondering why the temp TMP36 sensor was not operating correctly as I soldered it in tonight. Your comment helped me to fix it! Although I only saw this update after I soldered the two parts (temp sensor and resistor) in.

    I removed the resistor and took one of the leads that was trimmed during soldering and soldered it from the left resistor terminal to the PIN 1/left sensor terminal. I did the bare wire pass-through into the empty resistor terminal and crimped a small loop of the trimmed lead around the protruding sensor lead that remained soldered.

    I was able to get the temperature readout to update higher by heavy breathing on the sensor (I tested before the final solder of the bridge wire). :) Its reading moved up with increasing temperature...

No public wish lists :(
