It's the weekend, no electronics shops are open and I need an A2D for a simple project. Maybe I can just harvest one from an unused device lingering around the house.

What common household devices are most likely to contain something comparable to an ADC0831?

Cool idea +Dan Sheadel, especially since all of the devices suspected of having an ADC onboard were MCU based.

One of my sensors is 0-2.5V so I'll need to apply gain and level to use the 555. I have everything I need for that. That's a nice use of the 555.

Wow! That was quick.

Germantown amended its definition of family and couple memberships at the suburb-operated Athletic Club on Monday afternoon after two men raised questions about the facility's application language

If only more terrorists would wear shirts announcing their intentions.  Then the TSA would be a lot more effective.

I know right! I'm reminded of how the minds of sheep work with border collies. "As long as it isn't glaring at me, there's no fear."

Hmmm. The White House and Google sure are cozy. In part, I think this is great.

The more curious side of me wonders about the possibilities of an all knowing search giant cuddling up with the government. #justsayin

It's a surreal morning for sure. My wife and I are having Baby Claire, our third little munchkin, this morning!

Too funny +Mace Moneta. I probably need confession after that guilty chuckle though. :)

Jonty Hurwitz's work really amazes me. The way he employs optics is inspirational ;)

We call this one Lucky. He was an undernourished little loner before we found him.

He still eats frantically and wheezes a bit, but other than that he's much healthier now ;)
