I was digging through my component collection this morning and came across a bag of 40 thermistors, 20 rod and 20 glass bulb. I have no friggin idea why the hell I ever ordered them, but I must have had something in mind at the time, could have been a few years back but I am sure I never did anything with any of them. So I decided to do something with at least one of them today. I spend much of the morning looking at different projects done by others, many very complicated, others rather simple, some that appeared to have less of an understanding of these things then I do. Then I found some thermistor tutorial video. The instructions were simple, code readily at hand, and it worked right off first try, what a deal! Instead of using a breadboard, I have some screw terminals with plugs on the opposite side, this worked great for experimenting with these things. OH WOW It just came to me, my niece wanted me to build here some temp sensors for her ghost hunting outfit! I got these for that, and never got around to building it, as her mom passed on right after I got them, wow. Well now I have to figure out how to build the group of four sensors to tell if a cold or hot spot develops in her target location. Fun building for her ghost adventures, I am not really into ghosts, but I love building detectors of all sort for her outfit!
