More Projects and other news
January 16, 2011 19:49
Took a short roadtrip this weekend to see Tif and the baby. Some of the projects were aimed toward that trip, so while their immediate priority is way down, I still want the gps and cam features avialable for future trips. Right now, I'm still focusing on the relaybox. At least THAT is almost done. Part of the issue is simply the fact that without having all of the components ready and available, I spend a great deal of time on busywork trying to gather components and tools, and not so much time actually doing the nuts and bolts of soldering. Even so, the actual construction time is taking longer than expected. I guess I'm just slow :). I DO expect my speed to improve as I do these things more often; I know my speed on constructing the sign improved the more I worked on it. I also know that MOST of my time spent revolves around not having pre-etched traces and requiring constant manipulation of the component leads. Still, with the purchase of one more part, I'm hoping I'll be able to finish THAT project in a day or so. That just leaves like 16 more. Ugh. Double Ugh.
Still, with hopes that I can eventually catch up, I'm going to trudge onward and keep adding to the daunting list by posting new projects. Here are a few more.
