I spent a day and a half at the National Museum of the USAF, then went back and spent another two days. If you are going to spend only one day, check their web site first so you don't miss something. Although if you make Dayton an annual event, you can go back to the museum each year also. When I was there, they had just received the Hexagon KH-9 spy satellite, so there is always something arriving.
As I'm sure that you know from personal experience by now, you can have as much or as little as you wish of EVERYTHING. The philosophy of churrascaria is no concept of too much. YOU control the serving by means of a disc with RED on one side, GREEN on the other. Green means feed me, red means no more (for now; you can flip back to green anytime.
@mhrackin: They're about the top of the food chain price-wise but excellent food. Hope you're REALLY hungry!
I am REALLY hungry ... now (armed with your info), I'm hoping that someone else picks up the bill LOL
PS I've been looking at their online menu -- I'm drooling over my keyboad -- I hope you can get smaller portions of multiple types of meat, because I'm soooo tempted by the picahna, cordeiro, and linguica (to name but a few)!
@mhrackin: Are you on your way to dinner in Brazil?
I'm literally poised to walk out of the door -- I'm going out with a couple of the conference organizers to a Brazilian Steakhouse called Fogo de Chao – I looked it up on the web (it might be a chain) and the food sounds fantastic (www-DOT-fogodechao-DOT-com-DOT-br)
@GSKrasle: Just use something like a tack hammer and record the sound. I suspect some of the other (eerie) effects can be found on the internet in appropriate formats.
I'll be more than happy to make any plans and any code freely available. I'm already planning a blog on how to control the meters from the MCU (in general terms) -- then later blogs can have the code I use for the clock.
One thing you have made me think about is that the code should be written in such a way as to facilitate swapping one meter for another (this might be trickier than you think if the meters have a non-linear resoponse ... hmm, food for thought :-)
Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
