Probably not available at time this was posted, but now pick up an HDMI Breakout Board with terminal blocks and there is no soldering required. Simply map your wires, attach via the terminal blocks, and test. Easy to correct mistakes as well.
It kinda looks like a tweet. This is how it looks for mine...
Probably too late for ToddT1, but...That is almost exactly what I'm doing, mounting the sensor through a hole in the manway cover of my PE Water Tank. Distance from sensor to bottom of tank (longer distance) = Empty and distance from sensor to water level at max fill = Full. I'm modifying the code to transmit water volume and % capacity using simple math. ;-)
So I went ahead and made this, although have yet to deploy it into service. Everything seemed to work fine, but the first time I let it run the tweets stopped showing up after about 3 hrs 20 mins... exactly 100 tweets. I'm assuming that Twitter is limiting the service but could not find anything to back that assumption. I'll probably post up my final version when complete, but thought I'd let you know that this may not function, as is, long term. That reporting frequency is overkill anyway. My rewrite sends tweets only after a significant (user defined) change in level. Long term testing will take a long time though.

Nice project and good use on Neopixel rings. Was nodding with approval with your use of Conformal Coating and Anti-corrosion spray only to be shocked by your use of wire nuts! Using wire nuts underground is just asking for trouble. Consider Waterproof Heat Shrink Wire Splices for your next repair. ;-)
While hardly "ahead of it's time," depot devours did a nice project and yours was also well done. Reminds me of projects I saw back in the 70's in the wake of Saturday Night Fever. Though the technology has certainly improved, many people took lights underfoot way beyond the dance floor.
Beautiful work! (although I think the vials detract a bit from the beauty of it.) Wish I had your skills and equipment to make one for my kid. Would make an awesome learning tool.
Great idea using cardboard. Cheap, light and easy.I like the looks of your fan. Can you provide specs?Wondering how you control how quick fumes are vented by adjusting lids. Is the amount of air moving out of the box not a function of the fan? Certainly the air will be moving into the box 'faster' through a smaller opening, but the same volume of air will be moved, correct?
Hmmm... As we have many fires are the lake, I could see using this process but it would take a long time to produce enough charcoal for our annual Pig Roast. Wondering if this would be possible/practical with a steel 40 Gal drum.
Interesting technique. Just wondering though (sorry, I'm new to this stuff)... You mention using a Sharpie to correct the image. Can a simple PCB pattern simply be drawn with a Sharpie on one of these boards then etched?
