BennehBoy's Postbag

Post by BennehBoy » Wed Feb 01, 2017 1:25 pm

So none of the 15 items I have on order arrived today....

With that in mind I thought I'd show you my Magic Smoke Bag :lol: :lol:

Don't let the small number of items fool you into thinking I'm careful, I've just not been at this for long:

1x clone CH340 based Arduino Nano - blew the chip by supplying it with 12v accidentally on vin - oops
1x clone Maple Mini - arrived dead
1x 5v buck-buck DC converter fried through incorrect wiring
1x st-link v2, DOA

And now?

I use Google to store my photos, technically I'm using a bug to allow me to hotlink images, sometimes it bugs. PS, try a ctrl refresh, the forum seems a bit flaky today.

Yes... I can see the bag of shame now. Looks like we have a strong competitor in the blowing things up by mistake category.
