I'm usually not particularly proud of any aspect of my ethnicity, because it's not like it's related to anything I personally have accomplished, but this. This makes me a bit proud of my Scottish heritage, because come on.

I've been waiting until it was a done deal before I let you guys know, just in case anything went awry.

I misplaced the Esc key for one of my keyboards, so I have replaced it with a plain blue key like this.

I'm not sure how you would misplace your Esc key, but it must involve some weird ritual, like spelling out your shopping list on the wall or trying to find out which keys you actually use by starting with an empty keyboard.

You can never have too many Arduinos! :D

It's also a good idea to buy a load of the standalone microcontrollers at a discount.

I have a SunFounder Arduino clone and the quality is fantastic.

And where's the solder? There doesn't appear to be any on the iron, and she isn't holding any, so she's just pointing a (presumably hot) soldering iron in the general vicinity of the board.

What is that supposed to be? Some generic stock photo about.. something? Then why isn't she half naked?

What she's holding must be a soldering iron that doubles as an oscilloscope probe when it's cold.

Poodle sauce is at discount? Damn. I probably missed that sale.


Note: I have a 3 cm scar on my right hand from a poodle who bit me for the crime of trying to put its food bowl in its cage at the veterinarian clinic where I worked.

Habits are a funny thing. I was coming out of a store the other day when I noticed a man approaching to enter the store. So, naturally, I held the door open for him. Holding his staff in front of him, he thanked me and entered the store.

As he thanked me, I nodded my head politely in acknowledgement. Not the most appropriate or effective way -- it occurred to me a fraction of a second too late -- to acknowledge thanks from a blind man.
