Mellow Saturday

I'm always mellow on saturdays. Perhaps it's because of being able to sleep in (for a bit, I seldom get up after 10:00). Perhaps it's because you don't have to do all sorts of stuff: there's another day off after this one, so what's the hurry?

Yesterday evening, I restructured my collection of electronic parts. It had swollen recently because of several parts orders and samplings. Now it's back to managable proportions in a few boxes that I use to store my parts.
I also made a start with the MACH F display. It's turning out to be the biggest circuit I've ever made (5 ICs: 3 shift registers, 1 microcontroller and 1 MAX232, three transistors and lots of resistors). I have to carefully plan the layout, or else it won't fit in the 3.5" bay.

Today, klik went into the city centre with jangerben for some shopping. I stayed home, and I have cleaned up my desk a bit, vacuumed the house and did some additional shopping for groceries. Now I have finished all my chores for today, I guess I'll continue with the display now.
