Monopoly in Lights

Enriching the Electric Company

A Waity Conversation

Well, waiting on the PCBs to come in.  Should be in by the time I get back from a trip over the next several days, so hopefully I can try playing with some things. I’ve also ordered up a few more components in an audacious plan I’ve come up with.  After looking into the wireless stuff more, I think that’s the way I want to go, so I now have some tiny transmitters and receivers, along with another microcontroller board.  I ended up getting a Netduino Plus for this half of the project since it already has an SD card slot built in.  I got a cheap SD card shield for use otherwise, but I don’t want to add too many external components to the system, as that uses up valuable I/O pins.  I’m optimistic that this will work out pretty well, but I’m also back into an area that I haven’t planned out quite as well as the previous bit.   I may need to spend some time sitting down again and planning things out a little more firmly.

Bah, planning.  Who needs that anyway?
