this post counts, dammit
I guess I forgot to post
Not much to say, which I suppose could be why I forgot to say anything at all. It was a fairly typical day. Went to work, went bowling, went home. Didn’t bowl very well, and for some reason couldn’t concentrate or focus. Not sure why, but it was weird.
When I first got home, all I wanted to do was collapse in bed. I did for a few minutes, but then got distracted by a few more things I wanted to do with my intervalometer. The whole thing is now set up on a ProtoShield (with a mini breadboard), which is nice. I did that for a few reasons. One, to make sure I could take it all off the breadboard and wire it up again from my schematic. It’s not a terribly complicated circuit. The other reason was so I could take it home with me when I go to NY this week for Thanksgiving. My father wants to see it.
I’m looking forward to the next step, which is designing and etching the printed circuit board, so I can put the whole thing together in a small case and be done. Not that I want to stop working on it, because I’m having fun with it, but I want to be able to take it out with me and use it for photography. That was the point of making it in the first place.
