My Arduino based GPS trip logger  is done for all practical purposes, although I want to make up a more permanent power supply and package it up discretely in a yogurt cup. It’s nice, it records my exact location within 6 feet, elevation, speed of travel, direction of travel, time and date, every second. 80 characters or bytes per second works out to be 2.5 gigabytes per year, assuming that I never shut it off. It uses a 8 gigabyte MicroSD card for logging.  I fixed the VMS time and countdown display  system, just by switching the Vin pin to the 5v pin. No more crashing with a slight voltage drop. 

I got out grocery shopping today which was good, as eventually the ice melted and I was once again low on supplies. 🍝🍳🍎🌽🍄

While most modern automobiles have been metricized, strangely enough through-hole electronics are still built around 1/10th inch spacing (which is often referred to as 2.54 mm).

Granted, through-hole technology is used primarily by hobbyists in this day of age, but it’s still hilarious how perf board, DIP headers, dupont wires and most other things are still built around 1/10th inch spacing.
