Visit from Jeff Del Papa last night
I wanted to just say thank you to Jeff Del Papa @ the-nerds for stopping by the space last night and sharing his Junkyard Wars experiences with us. Jeff and his team have been featured on a few episodes in the US and UK. It was very cool to be able to ask Jeff questions about what happened behind the scenes.

Cheap logic analyzer (ELSA100)
I recently purchased this logic analyzer. It’s a clone of the Saleae logic analyzer. Available for 50$ here with 10 mini grabbers. It appears to perform exactly like the Saleae except its noticeably larger. It even uses Saleae’s software. It does ship from over seas, and might take a little while but it did arrive, and had free shipping.
The cable that ships with it doesn’t have wires broken out for the power supply pins, but it appears there are 2 extra pins, 3.3v and 5v power sources. I’ll have to see about adding 2 more pins to the connector to utilize them. The factory cable has 8 logic wires, and 2 grounds, but the connector has lots of extra spots for wires, extra grounds and those power supply pins.
Anyway, you can’t beat the price. Oh it’s also supported by Sigrok, an open source logic analyzer that is multi platform.
