- 0830: Received a text from Tom containing a highly compressed set of questions relating to the power board. Set about answering them when I got up.
- Processed some paperwork.
- Worked on Farnell screen scraping – progressing nicely. Some nasty problems involving Unicode strings getting munged about though.
- Read about John’s escapades.
- Had some xbee related conversations with Phil. Sadly massively diverged into setting up his ssh config.
- The random period of immense internet laggyness started early today. Around 7pm I guess. Moaned profusely.
- Performed a very short investigation investigation into radio modules for general stuff-monitoring projects. Decided that the CC2420 might be good – but a little expensive (~£5 a chip from Farnell). Will continue search for cheaper alternatives. Would be good to produce a large number of devices that use them.
- Looked for an extension lead casing manufacturer. Was pretty unsuccessful. Wanted to find an extension lead casing with space for some extra electronics in it…

Just found an interesting article on Circuit Cellar about a guy who linked an XBee to one of those Microchip ethernet chips. Nice.
