@Max... "- so what are you planning on building with your Arduino + sensors?"

To be honest Max I had not thought beyond getting it out and finding the time to play with it and getting sufficiently versed in Arduino-speak to actually talk to the sensors (and seeing if I like it better than the PICAXEs I have been playing with).

And I just got a message from Elektor advising me that due to demand there will be a 3-week delay in shipping...

@JonPeddie: ...Your TV could recognize you too, and only list channels you liked.

That would be handy -- especially if it filtered down to the sortt of programs you liked -- of course, that way you might end up missing something really good that you'd never heard about...

I thought series 10 was pretty good though I missed Holly.

I love the toaster scenario. Your TV could recognize you too, and only list channels you liked. Or how about an automated wine opener that says, "Ah, Jon, you don't Cabernate Frank, why are we opening it?"

@Asher: They're filming 12 new episodes. Maybe we'll see the Return of Talkie Toaster :)

I'm in two minds about this -- the first few series were really fantastic -- some of th eepisodes had me in tears (of laughter) -- but it sort of faded away towards the end I thought.

On the other hand... I knwo I won't be able to resist watching the new episodes -- at least the first 11 to see what they are like LOL

@zeeglen: Remember the 'Pet Rock' craze from decades gone by?

I have a USB Pet Rock sitting on my desk -- it has a cable that plugs into a USB-A port. It draws no power, works with any computer, and doesn't talk LOL (see this page on the Think Geek website).

It comes with instructions that tell you how to care for it and suggests games you can play with it -- like seeing who blinks first or who can exist the longest LOL

@David: Elektor which I subscribe to had a special offer on an arduino plus a 37-piece sensor kit...

Wow -- that looks like a reral good deal -- all those sensors will keep you busy for a while -- so what are you planning on building with your Arduino + sensors?
