Sunday Soldering 2015/02/15

The garage is warming up slightly so this week I soldered up a couple of breadboard bound things.

First up was making the 2mm pitch ESP8266 ESP-07 breadboard friendly. Some have gone for mounting the module on adaptor plates or using stripboard and soldering wires over to 0.1″ pitch pins. I opted for a low tech approach and just soldered a cut in half male-male “Dupont jumper wire” ribbon cable to the pins.

Second up is yet another Arduino clone, this time the Deek-Robot Pro Mini (ATmega328P).

Cookie fun with Farnell

Computer [Farnell] says no yet again :(.

So they upgrade the site and then stuff it full of Cookies they can’t accept – great!

And for those interested I found they’d set 36 Cookies (9424 bytes of data) which gets sent with every request to the site which needed to be cleared before the site would load properly again.
