Spam avoidance

You may not remember from way back when, but since March 2010 new members have to pass a tiny little quiz before we will allow them onto LMR. The main reason for this was the onslaught of spam on the site.

And it helped a lot! The number of spammers that get through have dropped dramatically! I guess they choose to move along and pester some other poor blogger.

ATMEL or PIC

Okay, this is just a little "this vs. that" quiz so I can find out what you guys generally prefer. Vote PIC for PICs or PIC based devices like PICAXEs and ATMEL for ATMELs and stuff like Arduinos.

Quiz: guess what "this" is...

No prize beyond eternal glory. Guess what "this" is. (Newbies, my squares are 5x5 mm.)

Bonus points for pictures that might have inspired "this". Even more points for sketches of possible applications for "this".
