Schultz: checked your thread on Mulletchat. Nice job on that frame resto! Holy cow. That's a first.

Well lets not go there right now.
Wow! Do it do it do it! (Sorry Barb.)

So, looks like Paul & Sabrina's DIY affordable motor controller held the lead it developed pretty early on.

Paul, you want that O subscription mailed to your home or work?

OK, OK, or would you rather have a t-shirt? Or have EcoModder adopt some mosfets? Discount on an official MPGuino? Your choice.

---

Congrats to everyone involved, and thanks for all the votes. If your favourite project didn't take the crown this month, the good news is we'll surely be seeing some of them again - the on-going projects.

They'll have to go up against Aerocivic though - basjoos did a few more mods last week.

Mosfet adoption? I think I'll go with that! There's this one street-mosfet in Nairobi that sniffs glue all the time, and he needs a good home. His name is "IRFk4553304032"

Another mosfet steered to a better future. I'm glad you said he wasn't smoking anything. If he was, he'd better not exhale or he'll be no good to you.
