The Celestine Project

OK, my leg is slightly better and so, I decided to try in creating a 'string' of LEDs. I want to see how much LEDs can be supported before something happens. And so, by my calculations, it looks OK. So, there are two ways I can do this.

1. I parallel solder the 30 LEDs and use one 5watt (very big) resistor to control the current, and use a thicker (but less) wire, or

2. I can use a resistor for every three white LEDs. And everything would be OK. Only thing is, there would be a lot of wiring. For every spike, we could be looking at 5 wires. Multiply that with 15, that is a lot of wires, which WILL definitely cause a black shadow in the tube.

Initially, I put 15 LEDs and they looked OK but
I m not sure what happened here as the second
half was very dim. So, I connect the power direct
to the second half and the first half dims. Weird

Finally, I paralleled the 30 LEDs with two resistors
and they got quite hot after a while. This was because
30 LEDs means about 0.6Amps passing through the
resistors. So, I have to get more than 5watts for this
and it can only be switched on for a few seconds. Or,
I can develop a circuit to manage them. Hmm.......

Deep fried Crab

Something new here. We were treated to this new
type of
crackers in the office. Its actually deep
fried sliced crab
stick. We suspect it was done
long ago because its not as
crunchy as before
and it looked very oil-soaked. But what

the heck. Its free food. Ha ha ha ha.....

Seriously, this is a very good idea and maybe, mixing it with some seaweed and spicy chili powder might be great for eating with rice. Then again, I can't eat so much seafood anyway.
