100th post! Tony’s Wifi Radio Sketchup Model, Dorkbot Tonight

100 Posts!

This is my 100th post to the blog.

When I started blogging in July of last year I wasn’t sure what I would post about or where all of this would go.  Eight months later, the blog has exceeded my expectations in many (and many unexpected) ways.  The major driving force behind this blog has always been my desire to share my projects and my passion for electronics with the world, in addition to (hopefully) inspiring some other people to do cool things with electronics as well.

My favorite post?  Definitely the Arduino-based AVR High Voltage Programmer.  I never expected such a simple circuit to help so many people.  There has been so much ongoing interest in this project that I am putting together an Arduino shield kit based on the original design.  The kit features a slick double-sided PCB and an integrated 5 to 12V step up converter so you don’t need an external 12V supply to use the programmer.  More details very soon!

Tony’s Wifi Radio Sketchup Model

Wifi Radio Enclosure - Google Sketchup Model

Tony created this awesome Google Sketchup model of an enclosure for my Wifi Radio project.  After I made a very crude first draft, Tony took my design and turned it into something that is sort of modern, sort of retro.  Perfect!

mightyOhm.com T-Shirts!

Today I decided to take Zazzle for a spin and created a fun t-shirt for the site.

I used GIMP to create the design and remain impressed with this open source alternative to Photoshop.

Like the design?  Great news! Thanks to Zazzle’s marketplace, you can get one for yourself!

If you order before November 4th, Zazzle will give you $3 off the price of the shirt.  Enter promotional code 3OFFZAZZLETS during checkout.

Update: There is one for girls, too.

Are you as handy with Java as your are with a soldering iron? Do you code by day and flash micros at night? Does writing cycle accurate code turn you on? If you answered any one of these questions with a resounding yes, this stylish shirt is just for you.
