Holy Cold! (Random Updates)

I don't want to see negative signs in front of the temperature anymore. 🙁

Last night I ordered 1000 resistors of (50 each of various values0, and 100 superbright white LEDs off of eBay from a seller in Nanjing, China. They were SUPER cheap, cheaper than if I had bought a fraction of that locally, and still much cheaper than the online part stores (unless I bought in bulk at like 10,000 pieces.) Now I need a nice case for storing small electronic components. Any suggestions? I'm thinking of going to Wal-Mart or a hobby store and looking for something in the jewelry supplies area – something designed to hold little claspy things and beads and whatnot.

Also, it looks like I've picked up a few new RSS/e-mail subscribers! Yay to whoever you are! Leave a comment and just say hi? 🙂

    Started reading a few days ago when I stumbled across you after Googling 'People are too civil on the internet' from XKCD. Your sarcastic posts make me chuckle 🙂
    So this was me saying 'hi',
    Ace over and out.

    If I haven't frozen, that is. Or been eaten by a whale.

    Vicious ones. They come when it's cold.

    And they are yellow. And no-one else can see them.
    (Just to clarify that!):)

    Indeed, but despite it saying 3pm, it's actually kinda late here, so I'm heading off to sleep. Night to those of you who I didn't terrify. Keep up the work!

    I came from Google just like Ace, when searched for "People are too civil on the internet". 🙂
    Your blog seemed interesting, so I decided to keep my eye on it.
