I bought my Domino in April of 2010, it was one of the last three from Sparkfun (afraid that it would be gone while I could afford it!)
I left it on the desk collecting dust for about two months (I was very busy that time.)
Then I joined the ‘Fezzer Club’ (TinyClr’s forum) and start to work on my Domino, using the eBook as the guide (still using it! it’s a great book-Thanks Gus!)
I was convinced that FEZ is really “Freakin’ Easy”.
Since then I was hooked!
Mine is in my ESD safe cabinet. Currently reworking RWAR’s chassis. It’s just too cold to test. Plus, last time I ventured outside into the street to get the mail, I slipped and fell on the ice in a rather spectacular fashion.
I was working on a chess game using the Domino and a Propeller but the Chess game from Microsoft’s C# site was too big! I am hoping that Santa brings me an Ardbot from Budget Robotics. It is made for the Arduino but I’ll use the Domino. Besides my Boebot needs the company.
But when it’s goes below the freezing point or when you received some snow… It’s worst than anything!
I live in Canada (and enjoying winter time) and my former company head office was in Fort Worth, and I remember last winter they receive some snow (I think it was less than an inch) and everything was closed…
We already received more than 10 inches as of December 20th, so we will have a white christmas this year!
:o :o :o :o On a scale of 0-255, how much more painful was this than stepping on a LEGO??
EDIT: Actually, now that I think about it, it wouldn’t really be bad at all if I fell on my keys. My car has one of those new fangeled “switchblade” keyfobs. The actual metal key is usually retracted inside, just like a switchblade, so I’d just hit a thin plastic block instead of a veritable knife.
I lived in Rochester NY for about 25 years and I know the ways of snow and ice. It is very true that a 1/4 inch of ice will shut down Dallas/Ft Worth or at least the major arteries. You should see the idiots on the road who think you need to slam on the brakes whenever you hit a patch of ice.
