    Sorry if I’m missing something here, but it looks like both Timmeh and the i2c application by Tz are just using the current mirror as a crude current source. Wouldn’t it be easier (and more repeatable) to use a simple current source instead?

  • News - Firework Igniter | about 10 months ago

    Back in the 70’s/80’s I tried this with the finest (not nichrome) wire we could find. Found that it could not light the fuse of fireworks, but it could light a firecracker, so we would wrap the wire around the fuse of the firecracker, and stick the firecracker into the firework.

    Argh! I have the darnedest luck with sparkfun. Everything seems to happen just a little too late. Just placed an order, then they come out with something beautiful like this. I guess I’m just going to have to find an excuse to order some more stuff :)

  • News - The Return to Shenzhen - … | about 3 years ago

    Dang, I just got back from Shenzhen on Thursday (took me a few days to catch up on everything now that I’m back). Would have loved to have met you while there.
    Schenzhen is such a different city. Ended up with a few free days and spent it just exploring the electronics district around the SEG Tower. 3 days, and I bet I still missed half of it. Wish there was something like that in North America.

No public wish lists :(
