Arduino MEGA 2560 R3
Arduino MEGA 2560 R3

5.0 out of 5 stars Mega!, 28 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ah, an old friend. I love these boards. They are great to use. They can be a little expensive at first sight but they come with lots of IO & fair amount of muscle. I've just done about 4 projects using these. Simple to use. Free development environment downloadable from the Arduino website. The language is C & the function set seems pretty good for such a small board.

Nice little headphones. Got them for 'Her indoors' when she's on the machines at the gym. They are good value for money & didn't have much trouble getting her iPhone to connect to them.

These are screws, M3 screws. About 6 mm long I would guess. Probably about 10 in a pack?

5.0 out of 5 stars Gender changer, 28 July 2014
9 pin gender changer. Does what it says on the tin. If you take the spacers off then they can fall apart if you lean on them.
I thought they were good value & I got some for my colleagues at work.


Start Spanish (Learn Spanish with the Michel Thomas Method)
Start Spanish (Learn Spanish with the Michel Thomas Method)
by Michel Thomas
Edition: Audio CD
Price: £8.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Spanish for beginners, 28 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice little into to Spanish. Easy. Starts slow & speeds up a bit by the end but you can always 'rewind' if something isn't clear.
It could do with a book though because some of the sounds are a little tricky to make out in places. I may just go on to buy the next in the series.

They are nuts, M3 nuts & there are lots & lots in the packet... It's difficult to get enthusiastic about these.

5.0 out of 5 stars Robotics project, 22 July 2014
I got this as for a robotics project. I didn't need all 16 of the channels but it's always nice to have a few spare during a development project. Perhaps when I'm finished the project I'll update this review...

5.0 out of 5 stars death ray to combat the forces of evil, 22 July 2014
Needed a couple of RJ11 connectors, preferably with a cable attached so this was just the thing.
If you wanted a death ray to combat the forces of evil then that's under a different section. :-)

It's a pan head screw. M3. 10mm long. There were 10 in the bag.
I'm finding it difficult to get all warm & fuzzy about these....
