Well, I finally received the PCBs for my LuanchPad Protoboard Booster this morning. They look pretty cool, and are ready to be shipped. Unfortunately, I had some troubles with my source for the pass-through female headers. That only affects some of the boards, the rest will be sold without any pass-through headers; you will use the headers that come with your LaunchPad. Take a look at my project post about the Booster pack (http://projects.granzeier.com/2011/12/30/launchpad-booster-protoboard/) and look at the board without the solderless breadboard. This is what is now available, you can pick up one (or ten) here: http://zenstore.granzeier.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=8. I have also dropped the price by 33% from now until the end of May – enjoy! Hopefully, I will be able to order the pass-through headers and offer the sister product for solderless breadboard development soon, but in the meantime, the protoboard booster is a pretty cool product, if I may say so myself. 😉
In addition, I have been spending a lot of time working on starting up the Pittsburgh Computer Museum. Take a look at that blog at: http://www.pghcomputermuseum.org/ to see what is coming. We want people to be able to access the exhibits whether they are here in the Pittsburgh area, or not. Sometime soon, some (hopefully many) exhibits will be accessible through the Internet, using Telnet or some other protocol.
We are currently looking for sponsors and a physical location to host the museum’s exhibits. Please pray for us or wish us luck with this effort. Thanks.
