    Re: Semi O.T. - "For the last time, it's not a b.o.m.b!"

    Before finishing my last build I setup a temporary spray booth in the garage, my girlfriend joked that it looked like a scene from the show "Dexter" with all the plastic and duct tape.
    My modest builds:
    Armadillo TM, A.K.A. Lil' Dillo
    Tarkus/Armadillo build #2
    Armadillo Center Channel
    Au-Rock-O Sub
    Tarkus
    Staining MDF tutorial

      Did any of your PCBs have the word "b-o-m-b" etched into them? Some of mine did back in college. Even when it was quite obvoius that it was some little chip amplifier with bass and treble controls. One notable exception - the "device" with a mercury tilt switch, a latching relay and a couple of buzzers... all potted in epoxy so it wasn't so easy to silence when it went off. That one really was the b-o-m-b.

        For sure....both colleagues and family have had the nerve to ask if I was designing/building a bomb. And if anyone is looking for dynamite-sized caps.....I've seen 'em first hand-

        That's a U.S. quarter sitting on top of a 4uf cap (not a typo).

            You just need a flashing red LED in there that does absoluetly nothing. And a wad of silly-putty.

                Not explosive related but this reminds me of a similar situation that happened to me.

                My neighbor once commented on the weird noises coming from my house and told me he thought I was trying to communicate with aliens. Seems the sound of a signal sweeps are possibly attractive to aliens?

                  Certainly not attractive to cats. But then, if 80s sitcoms are any indication, neither are aliens.

                    Hopefully it was an AMD processor.

                      Airport story:
                      I forgot I had a battery powered, portable blood pressure machine in my carry-on bag. I intended to take it out of my bag and let them know about it before it went into the scanners. But I was so worried about the shoes and belt and watch and laptop and shampoo and saline solution..........I forgot. During the x-ray process, the circuit board, wires, LED, LCD display and 9-volt battery set in motion a series of TSA reactions that had me surrounded by six really big guys in about 3 seconds.

                      Yeah... I'm probably on a watch list now. "Oooops... sorry about that guys, I forgot it was in there."

                                It is like the theme of James Bond movies. Mr. Bond always came back, a little older, maybe
