This gives a scale comparison of Irene versus a normal storm.  Note, the complete window for Irene is truncated or it would start and end around the same levels as the 21-22 September 2011 storm.

September 21-22 storm data.  Pascal’s (Pa) from 100,000 to 100,350.  Note: 100 Pa equals 1 millibar. Looks pretty impressive until one see the overlay of Irene on the same scale.

Bluetooth breakout board.  Not really needed as I’ve since found low-cost BT modules.

Gameduino !  I love playing the “Asteroids” game. I’m pleased to have received a working board from the Kickstarter event.  IMHO, this is wonderful Open Source Hardware technology.

Journey to SMT land.  My baby steps to a custom small Arduino compatible device. Gotta love the purple.  Note: to self, create some purple tee-shirts.

Epic OSH PCBs

Purple PCBs are the distinguished color of Laen’s Epic PCB service. His service provides a key ingredient to the professional and hobbyist Open Source Hardware (OSH) developer.  His PCB service is so EPIC, it even helps geeks get married!

If one is not aware of this great service, please check it out.
