#TGIF 

Rockin with cygwin this morning. Since using the Git Bash shell that comes with "Visual Studio Tools for Git" I have rediscovered my appreciation for linux and the command line. 

Thinking about buying an oscilloscope, torn between the Rigol 1052e and 1102e. It looks like the 1102e is the same as the 1052e with the exception of the firmware. I have read that people hacked the firmware to change the 1052e from 50 MHz to 100 MHz. Anyone have any feedback on this?

The kids and I put together the TV-B-Gone kit from +Adafruit Industries on Saturday. After the exhaustive safety speech they each got a chance to solder and use the flush cutters. We had a great time together.

Just ordered this laser printer so I could make my own PCBs at home. Good deal for $79. It has wireless support, drivers for Linux, Mac and Windows, and can even be used to print from mobile devices.

Motor board finished. Added terminal block for external power and a jumper which allows you to disconnect the power coming from the arduino. This way you can use a single power source or multiple. The SN754410 ic is a great little chip.

Also, I have to recommend the magician chassis I bought from +SparkFun Electronics. There are so many places to run wires and mount sensors. For $15 it's a steal!

I am building a line-following robot. The first time I built a robot I bought a motor shield because I was an electronics noob and had no idea how to make one myself. This time around, I decided to go the DIY route. So I picked up a H-Bridge-Motor Driver IC (SN754110) and a Dagu Magician Chassis from +SparkFun Electronics  .After a couple hours of soldering and stripping wires, my robot is ready to roll! So much more gratifying when you build it yourself. 

Yes, I know the wires are a bit ugly but I am not brave enough to design a PCB in Eagle yet. Maybe someday...
