Hello all,

My first pic project hits the street (well, a dump) tomorrow or the
next day.  I owe it all to you guys.

For the record, it took about 1 year from concept to the
Al-o-Tron Mark 1 landfill datalogger.  Armed only with enthusiasm and
a ham radio license, i learned to program the 16c84 in assembly,
including watchdog timeouts, using reset as interrupt, and
designed the circuit, including 8-bit adc 0831, memory 93c56, figured
out how to make the 33khz crystals work, wrote a 300-baud serial
interface, hooked in a 15 psi sensym pressure sensor, learned to
create a temperature compensation circuit for it, built my first
instrumentation amplifier, built an infrared link that doesnt work
too well yet, produced my first circuit board, and put in a s81350hc
ldo regulator.  i plan to upgrade the adc to 12 bits when i locate an
8-pin one.  It runs off 9volts because thats all i know how to do
yet, but when i figure out switchers i will change it to 2AAs.

This has been an incredible experience.  I couldnt have done it
without you.  Special thanks to

Run, do not walk, to linear technology (odd name for a switcher mfgr)
They have excellent parts, and documentation.

Congratulations, Alice!

That sounds like a really interesting and challenging project. Is it
commercial(I would guess that it is)? If not, is there any chance that you
might document it on a web page?

Thanks Sean,

um, i dont know what to do next.  i built it for work, but on my own
time.  there isnt exactly an up-to-date schematic, and the code would
have people ROTFL.  its nowhere near commercial quality, if only
because of the green wire jumpers that hold it together and the
rubber-band strain relief for the battery clip wire.  and i have no
idea how to do a website, and dont know if my brain can handle it.

virtual beer for all if allowed by your religion.  root beer
otherwise.

No, go to Maxim, they have a +5V boost regulator that is specifically
made to run from 2 AA's

Please document it if only as an entry in the "most hacked together thing
that actually works" contest. Reading others code and looking at new curcits
is the best way for all of us to learn. I want to learn what new people
misunderstand, for example.

Web sites are easy. If you have email, just go to http://www.geocities.com or
http://www.yahoo.com and sign up for a free site. There is lots of help and lots of
free tools to get started. I personally like http://www.aolpress.com as a super
simple, quick, "looks just like a regular text editor but puts out HTML and
its free and it will ftp if you File / Save as...
ftp://.....membernameKILLspamspam@spam@servername.com/directory/file" tool.
