Ordered most of my arduino stuff today
I grabed the same touchscreen and mega kit
Real time shield
And a led driver shield. It's got 6 channels and has a input of up to 30v so I'm curious to get the unit to have a play around looks like I'm gunna be running parallel instead of in series with it and I think I got a motor shiel too just need my dosing pumps(in a fortnight a time il order them)

I can pm you a link to the driver shield if you are interested was only aus $22

Sorry it took a bit to answer, been preoccupied with storm prep.
I used the DS1307 library only, had to solder a wire to the +5V pad on the Arduino to power the breakout board

Cool Diy2

Hey sounds like I'm not alone then!
I'm planning on doing the same thing - mainly for light control, maybe an automatic feeder in the near future. I had already blown (burnt, smoked, nearly started a fire) two of the fluoro ballasts so I've replaced them with LED strips. Pics are here if you're interested: http://electronicmenagerie.blogspot.com.au/

I want to try and build a cutdown version of jarduino, just using an atmega328P (ie the chip in the Arduino Uno), some transistors for PWM driving (dimming) the lights, a few temperature sensors, and a small LCD with buttons. LCDs big enough to have a touch screen end up taking up most of the pins and not leaving many for I/O - and the flash is smaller on a Uno so it could be a squeeze. I'll post here to let you know how it goes.

Boxhead - where in Oz are you? I'm in Adelaide.

cheers
Steve

Good deal
I start my vacation this Saturday coming up. I have to plumb my wet/dry in on my 65, then I have 8 days to concentrate on writing code on mine.
