Sorry-I think that somewhere in the rules it says no more than 9 purple PCBs. ;)

I didn't realise I needed a PCB - I thought  dead dug-style SMD was going to be in fashion this comp.

I made some progress this week:

Code: [Select]
// DIYStompboxes 10-Year Anniversary Contest entry

#include "p24FJ64GA002.h"


Now that I have decided what I am going to use, I just have to decide how I am going to use it...

Well, I won't be entering this year, but I will be contributing an etched enclosure which will be built into a pedal by Midwayfair.  I hope that a lot of people enter.

Damn how did I miss this announcement?
I didn't built a pedal since the well known 1000 competition.
Maybe I should try to win this time :icon_lol:

From what I understand, there aren't all that many entries so far.  Right now, I'd say your odds of winning are quite reasonable.

Any news on the official enters count?
Is it a contest yet?  ;D
Oh yes, it's a contest. :)
I think we're up to 15 entries, at least going by the people posting on this thread, and either 13 or 14 actual entrants (because a couple people bought more than one entry).
This should a be verrrrrrry interesting contest. Talented builders and nice prizes. I can't wait to see the entries...
That's where it's at.

Can we do that...  I mean, to tease fellow forumites, i.e., to steam curiosity in without affording satisfaction? :P

Good question.. I will refrain from posting teasers (By the rules the build can not be posted before the deadline, but at what stage does it qualify as a build?)

What? Of course everyone can post teasers.

I mean, I did in the last contest. It would be hypocritical of me to tell people not to.

Just don't post something that reveals what the design or finished product looks like. Cropping is your friend. In ~arph's case, he posted some sort of tree sculpture, not a pedal. From what I can see, I mean. :D

Cool,

I have a great side shot too, but that shows COMPONENTS  ;D

My circuit is done, and up and running. Now I have over a month to finish the box. I hope I make it. (not to mention all the schematics, layouts and audio video demo's  :o)

Just what I thought.  Perhaps the teaser indicates ~arph is doing a whole forest?
