Post a Picture of Your Silly Purchase of the Month.

Yeah, that's much more striking. Very pretty!

Treated myself to a Papilio Pro board. It's kind of the FPGA version of the Arduino platform. I also picked up the RetroCade Synth addon board, witch has MIDI, Audio DACs, a LCD, a SD card port, and some analog inputs for controls.

They already have a couple of cool audio chips ported to the platform including the SID and Amiga chips with full MIDI control. Can't wait to start playing with this guy.

Actually purchased it months ago at PAX East, but it was delivered yesterday!

Um, because. It will look awesome on my bumper!

AWESOME! Congrats and welcome to the club!

Make sure you add your furniture pr0n pics here. What are the dimensions of your table?

7'8" x 4'8". 6 player draws and 2 deluxe player draws on the ends. 8 cup holders.

In that picture we have the leaf supports and desks in place.

That is HUGE! I bet pulling the acrylic layer out is a bear. Did you get any other accessories?

Here's mine from last month... a bit of a Black Friday impulse buy.

And for this month:

(Good thing I got the points before this, no way I'd be able to splurge like that now!)

We did not get anything else. Going to put my Grid mat under the acrylic tonight. I'll post some picture in the other thread once we get a change to play some games on it this weekend.

So, we bought this...

Nice! Looks like a beautiful lot too.

Does Yellek let you come through the front door, or do you have to stay in the garage?

(Nice looking house, by the way. )

That back yard must be awesome! Best of luck!

That's a fine looking house! Dig the color.

Nice house, I'd love to see pics of the back yard though!

Oh very well!

Wow that did not disappoint. Thats awesome! One of my big regrets was paving too much of my yard.

Why'd you buy a bunch of brown leaves?

Sweet. Next step is to run a zip line from the screened porch down to the woods.

You know, for science!

A double 15 domino set, for a variety of games. I am going to pair them into individual bags in order to have 6, 9, 12 sets to scale games up and down.

Also, this was just 6 bucks.

Can you believe Yellek already said no to that?!?! It was one of the first things I suggested.

MULCH!

That house is lovely, and the deck is beautiful. I'd say I'm jealous, but at the end of the day you're still Q-Stone... so...

Wow. Nice setting.

I could just pitch the kids out in a back yard like that on a Saturday afternoon. Sit there on one of those platforms with a cold beverage while over-watching.
Colour me jealous.

(you might want to slap some knee braces on that balcony. Looks tall for no bracing against racking. Of course this comes from someone who lives and works in a seismic zone)

*edit* - check that. Are those steel plates? T shaped in red?

Three floors! From the front, I thought it was two. Glad I'm not paying your heating/cooling bills.

Great house, though, especially the view of the backyard.

Yup, steel T-plates. I probably would have put them on the inside, but no matter. Outside makes sense aesthetically too, since you'll probably be looking out from the deck more than in from the backyard.

So when is the S&T/House party?

New Years!

The house looks great!

I thought the blingy watch was silly, but then again...
