Just yesterday, Calgary reached the 2nd coldest place on earth, just behind an outpost in Antarctica. Yes, we are cold. Even the dog doesn't want to go out and play...

In other madness, one of our favourite distributors/suppliers, Sparkfun has announced their 2nd annual "Free Day". Circle January 13, and if they get blown out of stock, remember that we might still have some of what you need. Regardless, we'll be watching online, with our hand hovering over the florist quick-dial number to send more condolence bouquets to their fried servers.

Solarbotics Pick and Place machineNow that we have 2 of our 3 pick and place machines operational, we're getting geared up for new product of our own. So far, we've put LEDs on Ardweeny Shields (green and blue coming out shortly!), and made our own FTDI USB to TTL interface board (on website shortly - just needs documentation).

Besides that, we've been busy shopping ourselves. Chronodots, tiny voltage booster/regulators, and the new PICAXE18M2 IC are just part of the new stuff. We'll have more online & announced soon.
