Emergency excuse generator for the office

Posted on Thursday, March 3rd, 2011 in hacks by Ian

Need a great excuse for a skipped meeting or late report? The developer of the Mars Clock has an advanced excuse generator that will get you out of a jam. A PIC 16F690 uses a library of business speak to produce random business-sounding excuses:

  • “I had to bring the ROI estimates in sync with our new vertical synergy paradigm shift”,
  • or “I was facilitating our proactive procurement dynamics”,
  • or “My gerbil died”.

Source is available, and you can try before you build with an  online emulator.
