Computers

My idea of a prototype

Here's the prototype board I builtCollapse )

The one I built is on the left. vakkotaur thinks it looks like a rat's nest. :-P The board on the right is a Luminary Micro evaluation board for their ARM Cortex-M3 microcontroller. When I'm done programming, it'll be able to talk to the Icom ID-800H radio, showing the radio's status and accepting control commands for it over Ethernet.

Dammit

The TSA is a bunch of idiots...

...but then I repeat myself.

I took a folding multitool from Wal-Mart and cut off the knife blade with a Dremel. Now, it's got nail clippers, scissors, a couple of screwdrivers, tweezers, and a nail file. You and I would think it's not a knife any more, right?

The TSA thinks it is.

Dumbasses.
