Timepieces

Tuesday, June 20, 2006
It's a very sad day for me. My watch (very similar to this one) broke yesterday, so I'm now walking around with a naked wrist, feeling vulnerable. Anyone who knows me should realize that I have this crazy time obsession (or maybe just a clock obsession, since I'm not that punctual any more) and it should come as no surprise about how I feel without my watch.

So I'm torn. Do I see if this watch can be repaired or do I get a new one (spending is better than mending, kids!) I would love to have this nerd-watch for things like hiking, but I'm not sure it would be practical on a day-to-day basis. I LOVE analog watches, but certain digital watches have GPS features that I would love to use when I run. Decisions, decisions.

well first, if the repair costs more than the watch get a new one.

second, if you are gonna spend the money you might as well get the one that has the most use, if you will use the gps and other fun stuff for hiking than go for it. especially since you hike a lot. ;-)

besides everyone has to have a fun toy to play with.

F-a-n-t-a-s-t-i-c ! I was looking for similar projects last week, and now i see this post. I normally use breadboard to do this type of work, with one of these, job will be more easy. I was thinking, and searching others projects to do my own PCB. So, let me try my luck, maybe i can win.
