Another electronics project

klik sort-of forced me to order some stuff from The Electronic Goldmine: enough to make a 120-character scrollbar with. greatbiggary bought some alphanumeric displays there, and when I showed these to klik, she was immediately enthousiastic.

So, when the order is delivered, I'll have a lot of soldering to do! It could become a great art/decoration piece -- one could couple it to an RSS reader, or retrieve random pieces from the internet and scroll those, or program it to display poems, or any of the myriad uses one could put a 120-character text to.

Also, I expect the LEDs from the buyer's combination to be delivered tomorrow. That also means I can begin with the design of the decorative lighting panels I spoke about earlier.
