  • Could this be turned upside down and used as a rain sensor? Or would daylight confuse it?

  • Got it, thanks! I’m always curious what’s different when there’s a new revision of a product.

  • How is this different from BOB-09964?

  • Why use this over a solid-state relay? The latter is two bucks more expensive, but needs a lot less power to drive and switches the load on zero crossings. The only thing this one has going is that it has on NC and one NO contact, but how often do you switch between two loads?

  • I think you should consider stocking the Logic 8, not just the 4 and the Pro 8. The Logic 8 hits the sweet spot of being very powerful and still within reach for most hobbyists. The Pro is obviously better, but also costs twice as much, and it’s not really the stuff most hobbyists need.

    I got the Logic 8 recently and love it. Amazing product.

  • Do you have a sense when you’ll be getting the new 8MP camera?

  • Has anybody been successful in getting images downloaded from the scope? I’ve tried minicom on my Mac with a FTDI cable. The transfer starts, but it stops after a short time and the scope says that it was unsuccessful. I’ve tried with a level shifter and without, same thing with both. It looks like it’s starting to transfer but then goes out of sync after a few bytes.

  • Ouch, so many puns! No pictures of the carnage though? That’s disappointing.

    Pardon my Interruffion sounds like a great idea, though. And is probably going to survive for a bit longer. As a former dog owner, I only realized how much our dog was barking while alone when I set up a voice-activated recorder once (which gave me the number of barks during that time, but no other data).

  • Wait, an ATMega168 is more powerful than an Amiga 4000? Sacrilege! I demand a recount!

  • To add one more link to a related project: The high-altitude glider project should be of interest to you guys. They tied an R/C plane to a balloon, sent it into the stratosphere, and the plane then glided back to earth on autopilot.

No public wish lists :(
