So, a few parts
a micro display
a passive infrared sensor
a power outlet
and a box...
and some code....
and oh by the way... what happens when you sprintf 11 characters into a char? the arduino resets.
seems functional... let's put it on a board..
and a box...
oh wait... how do we power the thing... it doesn't work so well when you plug the arduino into the switched outlet...
this ought to do..
and mounting it up..
and buttoned up.

switched out recently from the Arduino Uno to the Nano (v3.0)
easier to fit into things and if I build an actual custom PCB then I can mount the arduino directly. and since I know someone with a CNC mill for just such PCB creation, I should be set...
what is that other thing the orange wire is plugged into? its a DS1821 temperature sensor. pretty cool little device.
A terrible misfortune happened (to someone else) and the single copy of their important data was on a flash drive. It was plugged into the computer when said laptop decided to challenge the law of gravity.
The flash drive lost..
and so the soldering iron came out and I managed to recover the data...
Hey Nerdlings!! Here is your project...
So I was looking for a way to get some antenna's (or is it antennae?) up on my roof for my radio.
In order to get them built, I need an analyzer. Being a good engineer, don't invent things that already exist and I found Luca's kit.
and it's alive!!
