Halloween '09 come and gone...

Wow,talk about a different year! After all the work I put into the porcupine, creating the show with a talking skull, a 2-axis skull, 4 singing pumpkins, and an almost 30 minute background track complete with thunder and lightning, the PC I'd set up to run it all up and died on me. Disappointing? Yea, but not the end of the world. The talking skull I'd set up just used a simple "toy motor" circuit to drive the jaw, so I was able to re-purpose it by hooking it to an old iPod & looping a bunch of jokes I found online over and over. It turned out to be a big hit! At least it was to the 20 Trick Or Treaters we had...

On a bright note, the LED spots worked great!

I'd still like to give the porcupine a job this year. Christmas maybe?
