WE LOVE NEW TECHNOLOGY !
Just arriving from a kickstarter backed campaign, this is the first run prototype boards of the STEMTera Breadboard – Arduino compatible built-in breadboard. It’s the world’s first Arduino compatible built-in breadboard with Arduino shields, LEGO® bricks and native USB support.
SEE IT IN PERSON THIS WEDNESDAY NIGHT 1/25/2017
Come join us once a month to share and learn about the craft of software development, at the CT Hackerspace. We are a group of developers, programmers, hackers, creators and inventors committed to learning new coding skills, and furthering our software projects.
Get started off right in 2017. This is the year you motivate yourself to come on down. Member and Non-Members are free to attend our always informal Open Space Night. It’s time to work on your project, hang out with the group or just check out the space.
CT Hackerspace hosts Waterbury Area Gaming Society! The Waterbury Area Gaming Society is dedicated to the promotion and appreciation of gaming in all its forms. We look to provide a place for people to meet and have fun, and to share new games with each other. Gaming runs from 1:00 until everyone wants to leave! Anyone is free to come and play from any of the games we’ve brought, or bring your own to share with us. All ages are welcome – gamers under 18 please bring a parent.
Our first hosting will be on January 22nd at 1pm-10pm
I admit it, I’ve left my garage door open all night… a few times. Doing so leaves all of my precious spare parts exposed for the taking! And maybe more importantly, provides access to the inside of my house…. not a good situation. I’ve been thinking about making some sort of indicator (inside the main house) for when the garage door is open. This would alert the home owner (me) that the garage is open.
After thinking about it for a while, I believe I came up with the simplest way to do this….
Some Graphics Cards for desktop PCs require a lot of juice to work, sometimes even more than the PSU Power Supply can output. And if you decide to run dual monitors with dual Graphic Cards, then one Power Supply may not be enough. There are a few options to elevate this situation. Purchasing a new hefty PSU would result in a tidy but expensive solution. A more DIY-friendly and significantly less-expensive solution is to add a second PSU (which you probably have kicking around) and delicate the 2nd PSU to your Graphic Card(s).
There is one tricky part to doing this, the PC motherboard controls when the PSU turns on and off. This post will go over how to automatically turn on/off the 2nd PSU with the PC.

I am happy to announce our efforts in creating the Nation of Makers.
President , Co-founder : CT Hackerspace
Transition team : Nation of Makers
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Nation of Makers
More than 300 organizations come together to launch Nation of Makers
New non-profit organization will ensure that more Americans have access to the spaces, communities, and tools that enable them to make things, not just consume things.
Halloween is right around the corner and we all have to get our holiday related projects finished.
So what better way than to have a micro hack-a-thon to get that final push in?
