Great Weekend!

Saturday was a lazy day, but Sunday we got a lot accomplished!

  • We got the Christmas light box finished, tested, and hung on the wall.

  • Installed two 20amp breakers and two wall GFCI outlets for the light box.

  • laid out all the Christmas lights and tested them.

  • Hung the Christmas Tree topper on the outside of our chimney.

  • Made a cute pumpkin out of a Tide Pods container.

  • Fried my computer.... Well maybe not, but the power supply is bad.. Thank goodness it's new and under warranty,  just have to wait for a replacement.

Keyboard Tray V2 with Arduino

So I made a Keyboard try a few weeks ago, but was not happy with the way it turned out.  There were a few things that I found that I wanted to add.  So this is the next version, added two CAC readers and an audio switcher to be able to choose from headphones or speakers. There is a USB hub inside the tray that powers the three items and an Arduino.  The Arduino is used to power and control the lights on the top..
