I did this project for teaching my learning remote the discrete on/off power code of my TV. The code sent by the original TV remote is the power toggle command. This is not so good when used as part of a macro for controlling multiple devices.
Woohoo! I got myself a free $30 voucher from Sparkfun Free Day. Thanks Sparkfun! 🙂
Sparkfun free day is part of Sparkfun’s marketing stunt that started last year where they gave away $100,000 with a limit of $100 per person. This year they increased the amount to $150,000.
I’m not sure $30 is worth the trouble of staying up from 3am to 5am pressing the refresh button on my browser. Anyway I’m happy getting the voucher.
During clean up I found the receipt for my first oscilloscope. It was for a dual channel 20 MHz CRO. I bought it 20 years ago.
I would’ve been extremely happy getting it. I was only in year 11 back then. I don’t know how I convinced my dad to pay $799 for it, must have been a lot of money back then.
I bought the oscilloscope from David Reid Electronics, one of the three electronics shop that was on York St, Sydney. I like that shop, it’s sad to see that shop closed down.
