+1 Monochron

Assembly was a snap and it works great.

I would suggest drilling out or tapping the display mounting holes prior to putting it all together just to make it a little easier.

I should do that too! First step: locate the camera...

Edit: Step two: locate the SD card... :roll:

My Monochron was waiting for me when I got home from work yesterday. Had it running by bed time. Great Kit! Thanks LadyAda and all the AdaFolks.

Just finished building my Monochron. Great instructions, clear and simple. (for those of us who need them simple). A couple of added steps I needed on my build. I tapped the holes in the display with a 4-40 tap. It helped with the front bolts. And I needed to clip the pins on the push button switches to slide the back on.

Now I'm sitting here watching the pong game.

Thanks for a great kit.
