Taking a nice long summer vacation and I have had the opportunity to visit Micro Center in Philadelphia a couple days ago and I was able to pick up a couple of great things including a new budget laptop I am typing this post up now.  If you live near a Micro Center (even within an hour or two drive) it is worth the visit and you can spend a couple hours there easy.

Along with the laptop I was able to pick up a couple development boards I have been wanting to try out for a while now.  I was able to get a Raspberry Pi Zero W, Microbit and a Digispark.  The Digispark was on clearance for only $0.99, bonus.

The break from work has given me time to further organize all the stuff I have and I hope to post some pics on a new, dedicated work space soon.

Finally, Hackaday Superconference tickets are on sale and this is an event that has been on the top of my to-do list since I went last year for the first time.  This is a jam packed weekend of talks, workshops, badge hacks and an all around amazing experience.
