Electronics Flea Market @ DeAnza College

Air variable caps.

Kylie and I decided to check out the Electronics Flea Market at DeAnza College this past weekend.  I took a bunch of pictures and put them up on flickr.

We met a trio of Evil Mad Scientists there and had a great time.  I stocked up on tweezers and tiny solder braid, along with some mystery items I’ll feature in an upcoming post.

The last Electronics Flea Market of the year is next month, on Saturday October 11th. Don’t miss it!

By the way, the big news this weekend was that HSC electronics is NOT moving as was rumored earlier in the year.  Speaking of HSC, this coming weekend is the annual HSC sidewalk sale.  (This year they’re calling it a warehouse clearance sale due to downsizing at their present location.)

Blogs, blogs, blogs

Some interesting electronics/microcontroller/hacker themed blogs I’m reading these days:

My favorites:

And some new (to me) blogs:

That’s it for now.  If I missed any good ones, I’d love to hear about them, leave a comment or contact me.  You can access all of the blogs I mentioned (and a couple more) from the blogroll to the right.

New Flickr group for photos of printed circuits

Printed circuit boards can be interesting and beautiful, with their delicate traces and colorful components in all shapes and sizes.  I just created a new Flickr group for photos of printed circuits like the one shown above.  More details about the group can be found on Flickr:
