  • News - Your December Caption Con… | about 2 years ago

    “Where’s your bandana?”

  • Product DEV-10059 | about 3 years ago

    Not a bad idea. Only then I’d have to buy the new one and I would have no idea what to do with an old scratched Arduino holder, since I couldn’t possibly throw it out. Gah! I guess I’ll be happy either way.

  • Product DEV-10059 | about 3 years ago

    Wish granted. Though unfortunately not by me.

  • Product COM-00097 | about 3 years ago

    That makes so much sense. My life has been changed.

  • Tutorial - LED Current Limiting Resistors | about 3 years ago

    Would an LED’s reverse voltage be the same thing as the forward voltage drop? I’m looking at the datasheet for a 7-segment display I have to try and figure out what type of resistor I should use for each segment, since I have a bad habit of just plugging things straight into my Arduino, especially if they light up all pretty.
    Also, to clarify, since the display would be wired in parallel, I would need to use a separate resistor for each segment’s pin, right? I couldn’t just place on resistor on the common cathode pin?

    Awesomesauce! Great job. Thanks!

  • Product DEV-09950 | about 3 years ago

    Agreed. That’s basically what they said at their New York Maker Faire schpeel when they launched the Uno: “We know it was kinda dumb, but we’re sticking with the pin spacing.”

  • Tutorial - Soldering 101 | about 3 years ago

    Thanks! That really helps.

  • Tutorial - Number Systems | about 3 years ago

    This is probably the best introduction to binary, hexadecimal, and octal number systems that I have ever read. I had decimal and binary down, but I just couldn’t understand how hex or oct worked. You guys rock.
    Now I’ll probably keep getting Christmas confused with Halloween. (DEC 25 = OCT 31)

  • Tutorial - Soldering 101 | about 3 years ago

    My iron has two power settings: low (20 watts) and high (40 watts). For which application would I want to use each one? Does it depend on what type of solder I’m using, or on the type of project (small parts onto basic PCB vs. large industrial circuits) or just on how fast I want the solder to melt? Thanks for any help.

No public wish lists :(
