Workshop Update for August 22nd, 2012

Posted on Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012 in Workshop Update by DP

Began plotting the Box of Nixies project. This is the nixie socket holder board for IN12s and IV22s (yes, VFDs actually). A universal driver board will sit behind it and all the other various nixie holders. Boards will probably go out today or tomorrow.

Started cataloging workshop videos on a new wiki page. Episodes now have numbers, based on an arbitrary starting point that seemed like a good S01E01.

A custom mini-site for the 7400 contest should be ready tomorrow once the artwork is in line. We’re also doing some general fixes on the website starting with an update to the blog theme. Changes will be exclusively under the hood until we get to the wiki theme which needs to use space better.

Anyone else out there in geek blogger land get the Stephanie Lewis email? Hum.

    Sounds awesome. I like the look of those IN12s.
    Might want to fix the spelling of Dangerousptotypes before you order them, unless that’s some inside joke you’ve got going on…

    Ouch, no worries that text was removed and replaced with a huge Dangerousprototype Logo ;)
