Not a bad haul from just two florescent bulbs. I guess I won't have to buy diodes for a while.

The "Pitari" is coming along nicely. Here is the cover for the 5 way micro switch. Looks big here, but it's only 12mm tall.

Compared to other trade conferences, the atmosphere near the #NetApp booth at #C16LV is a bit more refined.

I had no idea there were all these goodies in the base of florescent light bulbs. Just be careful not to brake the florescent tube itself. There is a small amount of mercury in there I believe.

Yeah. They aren't too big though. I took apart two bulbs. Check out my next post for the spoils.

Dr. Sampson gets 5 stars, but the opticians are awful. I tried to get progressive lenses here and after a few tries with obviously flawed lenses they said there was nothing else they could do and wouldn't refund my money. Take your prescription with you and get it filled elsewhere.

This Starbucks is really nice and the inside is one of the nicest I have seen. Very surprising given the neighborhood it is in. Wifi is fast and there is plenty of seating.

Always fresh here. I usually skip the fries because I am full after the burger. Breakfast isn't bad either.
