I have a distinct feeling that I'll be getting crap about the color I've chosen for the master bedroom in my new place. C'est la vie - I like it, and I think it'll look great.

Good news on the house front, though the time frame seems as though its going to be tight. Kind of scary that this might actually happen.

The shift registers work wonderfully. I've started writing a few functions, and its still surprising me how entertaining 8 randomly flashing LEDs can be. Its going to be fun once I have this setup with more.

This IPA is one of the best beers I've brewed. What makes me even happier is that even after this keg is kicked, I have another in reserve. I'll definitely brew it again.

Ordered my first micro controller and programmer yesterday with 2-day shipping. Update this morning shows that its already in Lansing from Nevada. RFID door locks in the near future? Why yes!

Found another good link: http://makeprojects.com/Project/PCB-Etching-Using-Toner-Transfer-Method/1248/1

I actually ordered some copper clad board to try my hand at making a few PCBs (arduino and otherwise) in the near future. Let me know if you try it out.

Getting a buzz from your own homebrew is an interesting kind of awesome. This IPA is one of the best homebrews I've created so far. Not exactly what I was going for, but 10 gallons of awesome none the less.

Closing date scheduled, kind of skirting guidelines regarding timing and all. Here goes nothing!

Buying a house, from what I understand, is stressful enough as is when everything goes smoothly. So, when you factor in things that aren't part of the normal process, things get a little crazy.

Ours was stressful . I was told ours could have been much worse.

Despite the fact that I rarely use eBay any more, it comes in handy when you would rather pay $5.00 for 20x 8-bit shift registers shipped instead of $1.50 each plus shipping.

So, $30 and a few hours later, I now have 6 LEDs bouncing back and forth. Sadly, in my giant box of electronic components, all I could muster that was useful at the moment were LEDs and a few potentiometers to work with the Arduino and my breadboard. Tomorrow, I remedy the situation with a buzzer, some switches/buttons, and maybe a digital readout.
