Today I:

- Went to EPO and spent about seventy bucks. I needed some parts for something I'm doing to the quadcopter, putting lights on it. Got 12V voltage regulators (Radio Shack supposedly sells them but they were out), LEDs (I actually already had these but I found better ones), perfboard, wires (better wires for this purpose than what I already had), stuff to make connectors, and some random odds and ends. I forgot to get a switch, which is a little annoying.

The goal here is to have red lights on the back arms of the copter and white lights on the front arms. This way I can see how it's facing in the dark, so I can fly it later in the evening, so I can fly it more often. One of the sort of annoying things about flying something like this is that it's easy to lose track of how it's oriented, since it's square and spends most of its time hovering in place.

- Cleaned my room. Cleaned off my desk, cleaned the work table, put things in boxes and in the closet. I hadn't done this since, oh, October sometime? And in that time I've built several small projects, one big project, added a tool (the cutter), spent two weeks sick, et cetera. My desk was actually buried. Like, the level of crap covered up the bottom of the monitor.

- Put the Commando 23 set on a keyboard. This was a group buy for some keycaps that I got in on a while back, and last week they were delivered. They were the final straw for junk piled on my desk. They look pretty all right on a keyboard though.
