Very tasty!!!

Since I'm just getting into using the Arduino, this column came at a great time for me -- I can see all sorts of uses for being able to embed these little boards in all sorts of projects ... once I'm a bit further along, I think I'll be investing in a bunch of these little beauties.

Thanks for constantly finding all of this interesting "stuff" -- I already pledged to that Pixy machine vision system for the Arduino Kickstarter project you blogged about -- my big problem is whether I'm going to be able to afford to keep reading your columns since they keep leading me to buy "stuff" :-)

I know, I'm going to be poor quickly if I keep buying all these toys. I imagine these should work with the Pixy, though you would want to make sure to get the 5v version for that.

I'm a 5V man -- 5V was good enough for my father and his father before him -- I can't be doing with these modern new-fangled inventions like 3V (LOL)

When it comes to nail polish I have to say that I'm not an expert -- so I think I'll leave this one up to the readers :-)

Nothing like bright red to get attention, mate.....  but then again, maybe a turquoise to match the board.....

Caleb, Max forced me to say that red is better... Please don't ask me why :)
And re the board, I could say that small is beautiful but after this nail color story, let me just thank you for another blog with cool stuff.

How can I make up my mind when there are so many colors, which I don't know the name (thanks God my wife knows).
