Yep, including uranium ore. I actually bought that for a friend of mine. Back when we were roommates, he would constantly be getting packages, so it started to become a running joke somehow of telling him that one of the bombs (packages) he ordered came. So, I decided, why not give him the gift of a nuclear bomb? And thus came the present of uranium ore being sent to a guy I texted many times saying his “bombs” arrived. If he isn’t on a watchlist by now because of me, the government is really failing at this whole surveillance thing.
$28 for the same on Amazon. Just in case anyone doesn't want to make an extra google account for these.
If you want to invest $14 into a device that will always tell you if a card is fake or not there is a Carson Microbrite.
You can look at the green mana symbol on the back of the card and a fake card will have a scattered red dot pattern. While a real card will have a L made of 4 red dots. The example picture is one I took with my own phone through the Microbrite.
Unrefined uraninum ore is pretty safe and can be purchased on amazon. I'd suggest putting it in a vial of water to eliminate particulates though.
I see plenty of fridges sold as "garage ready" which I thought meant that they worked in temps from 0 to 100 or something. If you already have a fridge, I would recommend a programmable temperature controller like this: https://www.amazon.com/Inkbird-Max-1200W-Temperature-Controller-Greenhouse/dp/B01HXM5UAC/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=programmable+temperature+controller&qid=1607138038&sprefix=programmable+temperature&sr=8-3 Hook it up to a incandescent lightbulb in the fridge with the temperature probe in there too. Set the fridge temp for 36 and the temp controller for 34, or something like that. On cold days the controller will cycle the light on to keep the fridge above freezing, on warm days the fridge will keep itself cool.
As a motorcycle racer, we pay a lot of attention to track temps b/c we get different tires depending on the heat. I have my IR surface temp thermometer for reading tire and track temperatures
Hot days can mean ridiculously hot surface temps... as in hot enough to blister your feed in a single step or two
You can still buy Uranium ore on Amazon if you want - probably about the same level as was in this kit.
It's great for experminets with geiger counters (as you can see in the 'people also bought' list).
> 40 gal screen top tank
> No thermostat as there is a thick layer of substrate in the tank
/r/ballpython 's worse nightmare. Haha
I see you live in Southern (?) Florida, that's a huge reason why you haven't had an issue keeping the way you have. Decent on/off thermostats like this Inkbird are so cheap there's pretty much no reason not to have one. Check out /r/ballpythons sticky thread. I'm sure you can agree that even if you haven't had an issue in all this time that there's always room for improvement. Here's to 20 more!
Some fixes that people in past threads had:
> Get some electrical contact cleaner (I used this), spray a little bit in each side, roll/click it a couple times, wait for a half an hour. Mine's been working flawless since. I received a replacement and it developed the same issue, but this fix works.
>I remapped one of the side buttons to act as the middle click.
>My solution: Blow really hard with you lips sealed around the scroll wheel. I have three G602s in service and have used this solution many times. It's not a permanent fix, but as long as you aren't using middle click in an action game, refixing it takes only a breath.
>Uranium that was given was most likely used to add to Russia's nuclear weapons arsenal.
You do realize that what was sold where Uranium mining rights, right? It's not weaponsgrade, it's not even torn out of the ground yet. In addition, uranium ore is not scarce, you can buy it on the open market.
Hell, you can buy it on Amazon
Russia gained nothing out of this for their weapon programs.
Just a heads-up: Thermoworks products are top-of-the-line for consumer kitchen thermometers, but the only major benefit over cheaper products is the speed to report an accurate temp. But speed isn't an issue with cheaper IR thermometers because IR is an instant reading. Get yourself a $15 IR thermometer on Amazon; it's just as good as Thermoworks for IR.
Just to prove how easy it is to obtain uranium, you can literally buy it on amazon. It’s commonly sold for testing instruments.
Carson microBrite Pocket Microscope...thing is legit and only 13 dollars. you can even put your cellphone camera to the viewing aperture to take pictures of the image, no flash needed. My goto fake card checker.
This is known as "drifting" and it is a common issue in the joycons. What you need to do is buy electronic contact cleaner, (I used this one) and spray it under your joycon flaps that are under the analog stick.
Pick up a temp controller, like the popular Inkbirk ITX-308. Inexpensive and works great for both heating and cooling. I tape the probe to the side of my fermenter for more accurate temps.
I had this problem and solved it by putting a duct fan at the furthest vent hooked up to a temperature controlled outlet inside the duct.
Oddly enough, I picked up this one about a week ago. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00837ZGRY/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
But I got it because my kid got a pet snake for his b-day and we need to make sure its enclosure is the right temp! I have one of those Himalayan salt blocks that was a present, so thanks for the reminder that I need to use it. The temp. gun is easy to use and seems to work well, I just can't vouch for its utility in cooking yet.
What are you going to cook on your block?
I bought this scale about...eight years ago. Literally the brand, went back to 2011 on my Amazon purchases. I bought it to make better coffee at home, and got Amazon suggestion from 2-6g baggies along with "bulk fake roses in glass." I don't need crack pipes or baggies in bulks, thanks so Amazon.
What I did find out is that my guy was just winging it. 2g one day, 4g another, 1.5 another. Really nice dude, just didn't use the scale correctly even after I told him how to tare it and make sure it's all set right.
Get a scale and get into coffee as an excuse, you'll know if you're getting ripped and you can get a pretty decent job in a trendy third-wave coffee shop with a base level of how to do a pourover.
That AC is broken. You should temp the air coming out of the vents, it should be in the '50's mid-range.
Yes, I've been told this as well. Unfortunately, I had already bought the Noctua cooler by the time I heard about the Ventroo cooler. I'm not sure about performance on that one either.
Here it is for those interested.
Try an Elegoo starter kit to get a jump on Arduino-related projects to play with. Amazon offers several kits of different components and boards. I like this one for beginners: https://www.amazon.com/ELEGOO-Project-Starter-Tutorial-Arduino/dp/B01D8KOZF4
Here is an example of how relatively non controlled natural uranium is. And in a country like India with lax mining and supply chain enforcement, I doubt it’d be much difficult to just pick some of it off of the ground near a mine.
For any use related to nuclear physics (including power generation or building a bomb) it’d require isotopic enrichment, which is a really difficult and expensive industrial process.

Resources they have available isn't a problem at this point in the story, because of Coil. Untraceable firearms are a non-issue when one is willing to wait a few days, and (at least in post-9/11 Earth Aleph), uranium is available on Amazon.
As for mentality, I'd understand if this was Regent or Bitch's power, but Grue is pretty diligent, and Tattletale is all about information. Getting a more detailed understanding of a teammate's power seems like something they would... well, get around to eventually.
Haha you can find Uranium just walking around outside, he wouldn't be able to make anything at all with it. It's little more than a bit of rock really. You can buy Uranium on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Images-SI-Uranium-Ore/dp/B000796XXM
That Rosewill 4500 chassis....a lot of people switch out the included molex fans for PWM Arctic fans. Those Molex fans are a pain getting all connected and they don't offer RPM control. Also, everyone flips the fan wall around. Just some tips. For the fans, they sell em in 5-packs. I did all this from others recommendations
What worked for me was getting the Arduino Uno starter kit and just making my way through all the introductory projects. As you make progress you will get an idea of the types of things you can achieve with it. Then start jotting down ideas of robotic projects you think would be fun to make. Try and sort them by order of complexity and do the easier ones first. Once you've finished up your first individual projects you should have a really good basis to start tackling some real complex stuff.
This was my starter kit: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01D8KOZF4?tag=%E2%80%9Cardkit-20%E2%80%9D&linkCode=ogi&th=1&psc=1
These are almost as good as noctua but much cheaper
How easy is it to get Uranium in the United States? Pretty damn easy considering you can buy the stuff on Amazon.
Your professor seems to have fallen into the classic liberal trap of talking about how EASY it is to get Uranium, instead of how HARD it is to make it weapons grade.
Uranium starts out as yellowcake Uranium, which is .07% U-235 and 99.3% U-238. Reactors typically enrich the U-235 to about 1-5%. Nuclear bombs REQUIRE a U-235 enrichment of above 90%. Below 20% enrichment, Uranium it is PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR URANIUM TO EXPLODE.
Enrichment is typically done using the Gasseous Diffusion and Gas Centrifuge methods, both of which require large, obvious, expensive facilities that can be easily tracked.
Is it easy to get Uranium? You bet your fucking ass it is. But it's nigh on IMPOSSIBLE to enrich it to atomic bomb levels secretly.
They're actually only about $18 on Amazon.
I bought the elegoo super starter kit off Amazon and I've been SUPER happy with it. For less than the price of an official arduino you get a knockoff board and a ton of electronics to play with. Also arduino is open source so it's completely legal to make knock offs.

I think you are confused, 3.5mm is not digital, it is an analog signal. Anyway to can get a digital to analog converter for around $15, that gives you a headphone jack.
Plug your mat into an Inkbird and you can control the temperature. I like to wrap my mat around the fermenter for even better control.

You might try some quick dry electronics cleaner.
Remove the batteries, liberally spray that stuff up in there and let it dry.
Make absolutely certain that it's 100% dry before you try to insert the batteries back into it.
If you can't find quick dry electronics cleaner, locally, Amazon carries a few brands.

Wow that really sucks. It sounds like you hit on the most likely culprit: the cooktop gets too hot or heats the pan too fast. If it is still flaking off just on medium low heat that means the damage was probably already done on an earlier attempt to cook…all the seasoning was weakened and is coming off over time. I’d suggest using an IR thermometer to understand the temperature range and timing of your new cooktop. You know you don’t want the temp much over 500 F max, and the temp should climb slowly to get there. If the Temps look normal then there might be another culprit. I’d use a Cainmail scrubber to knock off any seasoning that’s willing to come off with a good scrub and then reseason with flax oil. The flax oil is controversial because some claim it flakes over time but I had pans that were flaking around the edges chronically and flax oil solved it for me. I’m certain you can make this work with just a little experimentation. Good luck!
a long time ago I posted about potential fakes on this sub. The best answer I got is there is absolutely no reason to not own one of these as a magic player: https://www.amazon.com/Carson-MicroBrite-60x-120x-Lighted-Microscope/dp/B00LAX52IQ/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=pocket+microscope&qid=1600983475&sr=8-3

There are hundreds of tutorials on the web for how to get started with the basics, but sparkfun and adafruit are really good places to look
There could be a problem but the motors being very hot to the touch isn't always a bad thing as they can handle very high temps. Do you have an IR thermometer to get a general idea of how hot they are?
A side note to anyone who doesn't have an IR thermometer, I very much suggest one. They may not be extremely precise but they regularly come in handy. Amazon one for $15: https://www.amazon.com/Etekcity-Lasergrip-774-Non-contact-Thermometer/dp/B00837ZGRY/
You can buy Uranium ore on Amazon those days. So, you can re-create your radioactive lab even today.
Elegoo makes a starter kit with a lot of fun stuff in it.

If you’re truly setting up your kitchen for prep, eliminate the standup refrigerator, convert another chest freezer into a chest fridge with a $35 part off amazon
This should be a significant power savings.
these are NOT the PWM ones, at least your link didn't take me to the PWM ones, which are ACFAN00137A".
still good price for the fans, but I'd recommend spending about $2/fan extra and get the PWM ones.
5 pack of arctic fans. These are super quiet and work as good as Noctua ones. They went up in price though, used to be $40, 2 months ago.
That sounds like a lot of work. You should give “The Radioactive Boy Scout” a read. Should be a lot easier these days since we have things like Amazon
Honestly you're better off just getting an Inkbird temp controller they are so cheap at this point, and if you've got no experience it's kind of a no-brainer. Not sure where you are but you can check out this Amazon link. I think I picked mine up on sale for 25? I'd give you tips on the DIY part, but obviously I just bought this guy. I would probably just help you start a fire.
The Meshify ones are "meh" - reasonably quiet, reasonably powerful, but nothing special. Most stock fans that come with cases are underwhelming. If I were you I'd get a set of these: Arctic P12 PWM PSTs - 5 Pack. They're fantastic fans, and don't stay in stock for very long. You can get the white ones individually if you're going for a white theme.
Keep the stock case fans as spares.
They make temperature controllers for this kind of thing. You’ll put a probe in the fridge (ideally inside something like a small glass of water to prevent drastic temp swings when you open the door), and plug the fridge into it and it will literally just unplug the fridge when it reaches whatever temp you set.

Depends on age and how much knowledge they have on electronics.
For starters, a littleBits kit might work. They magnetically snap together and the magnets ensure you don't connect them the wrong way. They can also make a lot of cool projects with it.
Intermediate/advanced learners can jump to an Arduino kit. They can use the included prewritten code to run their projects. They can also start to learn experimenting with them and/or begin writing their own code to build their own projects.
Disclaimer: Giving children electronics may have unintended side effects, including running out of allowance money later in their life because they buy electronics parts.
My advice to anyone who will listen to me is to get this item from Amazon:
It's a pocket microscope that is perfect for doing the green dot test (Google it for more detail if unsure) on cards. I've gotten counterfeit cards that were only $25 or so, so it's not inconceivable for people to be counterfeiting rhystic studies. It's a great tool that will give peace of mind, and pays for itself the first time you find a counterfeit. Really can't recommend this enough!
I’m using this one to make my first animatronic, plus some cardboard and hot glue, that is all you really need, maybe scissors and nails depending on what your making
Like this kind of thing: https://www.amazon.ca/Carson-60X-120X-Lighted-Pocket-Microscope/dp/B00LAX52IQ/ref=sr_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=trichome+microscope&qid=1621385740&sr=8-5
Yeah they aren't great. But they'll let you see the colors of your trichomes, spot powdery mildew and see tiny bugs. Best you can hope for for $20.
It depends on what depth you’re going for. If you’re just looking for basically surface temp get one of these: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00837ZGRY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_dlT1_Z6SRGAQ40WPYS82B2HYX?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
Ps. I would say a quality meat thermometer is going to be more accurate than a random low cost thermometer meant for other purposes.
Good catch. I see it too. Also, little white dots on the leaves could be thripes. Not that these are. You'd need a microscope to confirm between the two. Or if you have both, which would be awful.
But, there's a microscope online that was the best present under $20 I got for myself to study my plants. https://www.amazon.com/Carson-MicroBrite-60x-120x-Lighted-Microscope/dp/B00LAX52IQ
I look at their leaves all the time under this thing. It's so cool.
Hmm, the Deepcool and Arctic have about the same 54-56CFM at about the same RPM. So, it may not be an upgrade if I'm looking for a case fan.
Also, AeroMalls has it with prime shipping for $65 (Feb shipping): https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07HC782D5/
I believe it’s this one, super starter kit Project elegoo uno with tutorial for Arduino https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01D8KOZF4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_1LLcGbY96H00K?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

As long as you stay above 60 F you shouldn't have to worry about diacetyl as long as you keep it on the yeast long enough for fermentation to reach completion and all the byproducts have a chance to get cleaned up.
Yes, you can use a thermostat on a fridge. Check out the inkbird temperature controller here
Just letting you know, corsair fans are dogshit compared to other fans you can buy.....
If you want cheap fans that are amazing, the Arctic P12
This is a 5 pack for 40 bucks. Great deal, considering they are almost as good as Noctua fans, and yet ONE Noctua NF-A12x25 cost about $40....
They were tested, and depending on workload task, they go head to head with Noctua, which is crazy. Essentially they flow a bit more than Noctua when running on an air cooler or as case fan, but Noctua edges out in liquid cooling situations.
This is how I measure it:
You should ferment at around 10c. If you're making a 5 gallon batch, make sure to pitch at least 2 packs of yeast.
I get the feeling you're just using your fridge's internal controls to measure the temperature. Instead, I would recommend picking up a temperature controller and tape the probe to the outside of your fermentation vessel. It will cycle your fridge on/off to hold your beer at your precise fermentation temperature.
If just kept at ambient temps, your beer will actually ferment warmer than ambient (probably 4-10 degrees F warmer). Temp swings up and down as fermentation ramps up and tapers off can be detrimental to your yeast performance.
its a step up from the stock cooler. any 120mm tower heatsink is going to be like $20 and the rest of what you're paying is for fans.
Treatment is going to depend partially on the ID. Could be fruit flies or phorid flies just going off size and what I can see of color from here. An extreme close up (use a magnifying glass if you have it) would definitely help. A pocket microscope is by far the best identification tool you can buy for the money. I recommend that one because I bought it and am super happy with it.
Either way though, the most effective treatment is always going to be removing the food source. They both feed on decaying and dead stuff, as well as the fungi that decay those things. Could be rotten fruit/veg in the pantry, a lot of leftover feces in the yard, animal cages (rabbit, guinea pig, hamster...), dead animal close to house or in crawl/attic, trash, etc.
The problem is that they don't always hang out around the actual breeding and feeding sites, so finding a concentration isn't always going to point to the infestation. A thorough inspection is what deals with them.
As a programmer without much electronics knowledge I bought one of the cheapie elegoo arduino kits and actually really like it.
They walk you through all the basics of reading different types of sensors, powering motors, etc. It’s all in the arduino IDE which is in C.
The component quality is not high but the variety is good and they do use lots of standard bits. Afterwards you’ll have a wide grasp of the basics to more easily move up to bigger projects.
I think I bought this one — https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01D8KOZF4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_O7BSFbS859JZ2

Have you measure the temperature of your hotend with some external measurement source? I picked up a cheap IR thermometer from Amazon while I was building my Mendel90, and it had been super useful in the "should I touch that yet" department.
It could be that your thermistor is improperly installed, causing your hotend to not be as hot as you think it is.
Here's my el-cheapo IR thermometer: Etekcity Lasergrip 774 Non-contact Digital Laser Infrared Thermometer -58℉~ 716℉ (-50℃～380℃), Yellow and Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00837ZGRY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_GjrTyb6KAX0F6
I got this one from Amazon. Cost about $10. I like that it's portable, so you can put it on any sample. Like all microscopes, it only focuses on a specific distance at a time (adjusted with the focus knob), so it works best if you can hold it up against the sample or on a flat surface to keep it still. All these pictures were taken with the zoom at the minimum position (60x magnification).
It works really well for the price, but if you/your daughter want to take a lot of pictures, I would recommend getting something else. Either a full-sized stand microscope with a camera mount, or the same company makes some slightly more expensive ones with mounts for smartphones. I don't think they had one for my phone, so I had to strap it on with rubber bands to get these pictures.
I cannot agree and recommend an IR thermometer enough. I believe I purchased this one from Etekcity on Amazon and it works like a charm.
Buy the Elegoo super starter kit on Amazon. It comes with a very well made Arduino knockoff that works exactly the same. It also comes with a lot of components and a PDF file that teaches you the basics of every item and coding through projects. It's also the cheapest way to get all of those parts together. Waayyy cheaper than if you bought a kit through the Arduino site and you get like twice as many components. Including two breadboards. And all the cables.
Look it up. I got it for Reddit secret Santa two years ago and it's by far the best gift I've gotten in a very long time.
There is also this version with more things but it costs a bit more.
Take an free online free course!
I recommend a programming course "python for everybody" on Coursea. It is being taught by Dr. Chuck from University of Michigan. Its an awesome starter course to get into program. Of course you have code academy and etc.
If you can, buy an ardiuno kit from Amazon and build what you can from it. Most kits have instruction manuals on what to build from the kit. This is the kit I bought: Elegoo EL-KIT-003 UNO Project Super Starter Kit with Tutorial for Arduino https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01D8KOZF4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_w.tdBbSBN6C7N
If only we could buy it on amazon. Be sure to check Q&A.
Or buy a GM counter and go hiking in central Andhra or other uranium rich regions.
A branch is fine if he likes to use it. Once he's full grown you'll probably need to make him some sort of platform to lay on since they get up to two feet long. For the basking area, it's the actual surface temperature of whatever he's laying on that you want to check. We use an inexpensive infrared thermometer from Amazon. We have this one and it's only $15.99
The air temperature only needs to be in the 80's, and you want to put the basking area at one end of the tank. That way the basking area is the hottest and the opposite end is cooler, so he can move around and find the spot where he's happiest with the temperature. You want to put the UVB light in the middle so it shines on him no matter what part of the tank he's in.
One way to tell if you have the temperature in the basking area right is if he sits under the light with his mouth open. That means he's at the temperature he's happy with, and since he can't sweat he's using his mouth to cool down just enough to maintain his temperature. If you Google "bearded dragon gaping" there are lots of pictures of them doing it.
Here is a link to the Amazon one I got.
I know there's tutorials and videos and all that, but I went with this for the cheapest and simplest possible solution and it definitely helped my drift problems with my left joycon which was awful. Just a tiny tiiiiny spritz around a couple sides of the joystick and it was good to go after putting down/unhooked to dry for a little bit.
Contact cleaner, $4.77 @ Amazon, but you can buy at probably any store like Lowe's.

Good pack for those on a budget. Individual cost is $10 each. I have 1 of these and I wish I bought the 5 pack. Switching from the stock fan on a corsair h50 dropped my 4790k at 4.6 from 70 max to 66. Noise wise I no longer hear a loud rev up noise when my cpu goes from idle to load compared to the stock fan. Lastly, it has a 4 pin adapter daisy-chaining off the main wire so you don't have to worry about not having enough fan headers. It also hardly vibrates, maybe a reason why they didn't include rubber corners.
10 years warranty is ridiculous as well.

Here's one from Amazon you won't be able to use chat or anything though only sound
Ordered it on amazon https://www.amazon.com/Images-SI-Uranium-Ore/dp/B000796XXM
Anyone can own uranium. It isn’t illegal. In fact, it’s one of the most common elements on earth. You can buy it on Amazon. Uranium Ore https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000796XXM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_LsFkDbZGJ01ZG
The PWM PST value pack is available too, but all of them pretty much total out to $40.99, even the one sold by Arctic. ($30.99 + $10 shipping)
It actually does the cooling, you get an inkbird thermostat and plug the freezer in to it. Set the temp where you want it and it turns the power on and off to keep it at temp. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01HXM5UAC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_fab_gYjIFbBEDSEKF
It’s hard to know exactly what is happening without pics, but it does sound like OE since a few managed to make it to a butterfly. If they have NPV or another bacteria, they will die as a caterpillar. I’m in California and it is very prevalent here. Many of us have a plant which we collect eggs from, bring them inside and do a bleach treatment, and then raise them with milkweed that has also been bleached even if they are covered plants. Even with all this intervention, a few manage to have OE. It’s very easy to test for OE, there is a good video on Dr. Lund Science and this a a good and inexpensive microscope Carson MicroBrite Plus 60x-120x... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00LAX52IQ?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
> I don’t have a laser thermometer
I got mine cheaper a few years back, but this is your friend.
Harvest the plants earlier when the trichromes are cloudy, but before they have amber. Buy a 40x or larger loupe off Amazon to check your trichromes.
Here's a good scope.
Here are some photos to give you an idea of what to look for.
To follow up on what the above user said, I bought the Elegoo Arduino UNO kit on Amazon, the whole kit costs less than most official Arduino UNO units and this specific kit comes with a whole bunch of micro controller projects on a cd and the relevant components to complete them with enough spare components to experiment with.
I’ve actually since bought a second one because I felt like it was good value. Hope this helps!
I use an infrared thermometer temp gun from amazon. around 20 bucks and use it for everything. deep frying, cast iron skillet preheat, candy making, custards- heating and cooling, and even slab leaks. I love being able to check all of my pans temperatures so I can make sure not to burn teflon off of non stick pans and so I know if it's cooled down enough to wash it so I don't warp it. I have this one but there are many on amazon that you can choose from.
That's pretty high. I can guarantee you that getting even a 30 dollar cooler is going to help a ton. I benchmarked an older i7 that previously had temperature issues using prime95 and was maxing out at 65 degrees Celsius. It's worth the 30 dollars to just get one of these: ventroo v5. It's well reviewed
Random note your cpu cooler is totally overkill. There’s been a lot of hype recently surrounding the Vetroo V5. HardwareCanucks and Jayz2Cents both reviewed it very highly. Save yourself $55

You could also just use the stock cooler and be fine.
I think you may be confusing thermometers for thermostats. Thermometers measure temperature/humidity. Thermostats are hooked directly into your heat source and regulate the energy output.
Do you have a way to measure the surface temperatures as well? That can help determine if you're providing an appropriately heated basking area.
That’s the one I use
Get one of those Arduino kit and just start messing with it. This one is nice since it also comes with a PDF of fun little projects.
I agree. Get a good ~$40 air cooler to make it a happy chip. Jayztwocents has a lot of good things to say about this guy:
I start pouring when the temp drops under 130 degrees F
84 degrees on the warm side is perfectly fine. Do you have a way to measure surface temperatures. Ideally, you want the cool side to be in the low-mid 70s, the warm side to be in the low-mid 80s and a small basking around ranging between 90-100 (this is the spot right under the lamp). Are you using a thermostat to regulate the heat lamp?
