Random E14 goodies

Posted by Fred27 Jul 27, 2020
I don't know about you, but I have a strange fascination watching a parcel making its way towards me across the globe. It's even better when the contents of the package are a mystery. A part of E14's random generosity, I recently found such a mystery package on the way.   I didn't have too long to wait until the package arrived. I was glad to see - for the sake of the environment - it was a nice small, re-used box. In it was a nice E14 present of a T-shirt, some stickers, and a breadboar ...

What is in your mug?

Posted by dougw Top Member May 2, 2020
I generally don't use mugs for drinking and I don't actively collect them, yet I seem to have acquired a bunch of mugs that I did not buy - as you can see... They all have significant meaning for me, except the Chicago mug - my memory fails me as to how I got that one. Did element14 ever give away Chicago mugs? The computer mug is pretty geeky and the Tardis mug is pretty fancy - the Tardis disappears from the scene when a hot liquid is in the mug. I was going to call this blog "The Unsung ...
I'm trying out OBS as recording software. It allows to mix sources on a single screen. In my case: laptop camera for my face USB cam for the bench, taped to a chair 3 windows: DMM display, eLoad display and datasheet in acrobat reader record from Jabra wireless headset microphone.     There are some watchouts: resizing the windows can make characters too small for reading (see eLoad window) my layout is way too busy - less is more Better cam for the bench would be appropri ...
When you want to make an electronics video, you sometimes like to run your DMM Windows software on screen when showing what you do. Look at Louis Rossmann. He uses "Paul Daniels Software" to show his DMM measurements while probing Apple laptops. Because it is from Paul Daniels, it's perfect and will always show on top - he built that into the software.   Most of the Windows software that comes with my DMMs, oscilloscopes, ... don't have that option. But there's a Windows freeware that t ...
The situation we have at the moment creates a lot of anxiety, and with a lot of people being told to isolate or social-distance, it's a difficult to feel part of a group. I'd like to kick off a discussion on our very own awesome element14 Community to highlight some tech, tips and projects that I think are really cool, uplifting, and show how technology & a great community can make a huge difference. I'm not writing on behalf of the company, the views are my own.   WFH  Like many ...
(or singles awareness day)   Everyone has a love in their life, their partner, pet, a television show, and for others it is their favourite electronics project that takes pride of place in their application or showcase.   Though for most of us, we do not always love our electronics, in fact, they can be the bane of our existence. Whether it's the work virtual private networking not functioning, computer memory deciding to fail, or our mobile phone not having signal.   For me re ...
Whether you're sat around the television, games console, board game, card game, a beverage, on your mobile phone, laptop, tablet or your main meal of the day, I hope you're having a good time on this day this year!   What has ol' Saint Nic' brought you for the holidays? Or perhaps a family member, or frankly, perhaps you've decided to buy something for yourself?   Personally I took advantage of the Cyber Monday sales, traded in some old electronics hardware, and bought myself an upgr ...

Greetings Best Community Members in the Galaxy!   It's getting harder to crank these out week after week like planned so hope you'll forgive the absence.  A big part of that is there's a lot going on as you may have guessed.  After Turkey Day in the U.S., the holiday season will be upon us.  One of the things to do was to try and find prizes for the end of the year holiday celebration.  I'm happy to announce that the holiday special will simply be called "The Holiday Sp ...
Greetings Best Community Members in the Galaxy!   Apologies for not getting this up sooner.  I thought I would quickly post a quick run down of all the activities going on currently in the areas that I am on.  I've been really behind on things,  and didn't want to do a rush job.  The reason we started doing this journal was to organize all the activities that go on with our monthly project competition Project14 ,  Webinars, Training and Events , Arduino , and of ...
Greetings members,   Last week of September so thought I'd do a quick recap of what's happening.   Currently,  I'm planning on setting up a holiday special event similar to last year's  Merry Boxes & LEDs  and am coordinating with the rest of the team to see what this may involve.  Project14 competitions pop up really frequently so its hard to plan things outside of the birthday special and holiday special.  Gift to gives have been a part of the last two ...

Greetings Members!   Welcome to another addition to the weekly content journal!   What does a community mean to you? It's a question we've been talking about a lot on the community. Everyone seems to have their own definition of what an online community is.  The term community gets bandied around a lot but we like to pride ourselves on the fact that the element14 community is a true community in every sense of the word. I'd like to re-share some insights from a community expert ...
