General discussion / Re: AVR Dragon Tips or mods
[quote author="matseng"]
I think my dragon won't fit in that box :-(

Ok Mats;
Has the dragon board changed dimensions? If not you could always just use the bottom half to protect the board.
Or I could just print a case thats taller to fit the daughter board you've created.
What color?

- Make a proper case (or at least a base) for it that is stable.

Well here is my version of a case for my Dragon. Looks good and it only took three prints before I got it right.

I think I'll print another one in red or black. Bertho, Mats, If you want one let me know what color you want it in and pm me your info.
Next I am working on a BB for the zif socket and a BB for a 44 pin test socket.

I still need to adjust the headers alignment next to the socket. So this version is not right yet.
General discussion / Re: AVR Dragon Tips or mods
I like your ideas. I'll post some pic as soon as I solder the headers on. About the buffering of the  high load ICSP header, Do you buffer all the pins or just the ones you use for certain chips?
Project logs / Completed my QuarterK
Hi everyone;

I Finally got around to putting together my QuarterK, that Mats sent me a while ago.
I think Mats should change the name to "Mind Bender" for all(32) of the tiny resistors that you have to bend and solder.  :-)

Oh, Mats you need to update the QuarterK.h and QuarterK.cpp.
Change #include "WProgram.h" to  #include "Arduino.h" so that the program will run with Arduino 1.0 and above.
Cool little shield, I think I'll add a analog thumb joystick BB to it.

General discussion / Re: Nice & cheap finds at eBay
Hi Mats;
I have some of those 5w cool white leds in my old style desk lamp.

Got them on ebay for $15.99 about two month ago, now $12.74
Still working on the on/off switch, needs to handle 12v @ 10a and have one switch for on and one for off.
Will probably use some 12mm Tactile Button Switches, N-channel power MOSFET - 30V / 60A and make a soft switch.

[quote author="dpropicweb"]No, at least in this instance, it was a physical person. I know only too well because it was me. It was not intentional, it was my mistake. I've explained the circumstances and apologised to MickM.[/quote]

Man I'll sleep alot better now that I know that dproicweb is on the job and my measly 200+ post are safe. :-)
