Parts Storage

My wife found these photo holders which convert into great parts storage. This is half my parts minus boxes with the big stuff..

I need to buy some more of these soon. I love these for parts storage. I’ve gotten more since but I think I’ll definitely need more when I bring back more parts from South Dakota (my house back in Sturgis has a lot of my storage yet). These are actually 4×6 photo storage cases bought at Hobby Lobby for some where in the neighborhood of 30-40$. It took me forever to separate my 74 series logic, 4000 series and linear parts.

Hello World?

Ugh, Hello World. Really? Sometimes those eleven characters* can drive you insane. I was debating buying a Suunto altimeter watch; They are painfully expensive for the number lackluster reviews. God they are gorgeous though huh?! I decided that I’ll just have to pass and build my own altimeter. I’d also like a barometer with that fancy alert system… so no problem right? Sparkfun barometer board.. PIC16F1590 breakout board and some random 16×2 LCD I pulled out of my box of goodies. Hello World is kicking my ass for some reason.. granted I’m only 4 hours into it.
