    Re: Hardware Hack Kit Ideas

    Someone new to HH would benefit from knowing what to include in their tackle box before heading off to the Con. I'm thinking it would be useful to recommend Good, Better, and Best starter tool kits like Lady Ada describes here:

    This gives a few options based on level of interest and how much cash they want to lay out before deciding if its really for them.

    Actually that is one thing that is exactly along the lines of what I was looking for. This makes creating a list of sample providers a lot easier. Samples are pretty sweet but should be used carefully.

    A warning I will make: one mistake I know people make is to not know what type of package they are ordering. I did this before and instead of the DIPs I was expecting, little surface mount chips came hoping out. On the other hand it does create an excuse to learn/figure out how to solder surface mount chips. I do however suggest DIPs for beginning out even if this limits a lot of your selection.

    Hardware Hack Kit Ideas

    So the idea was thrown out there and I liked it so much that I'm running with it and seeing where it goes. I would like to try to organize a list of parts/tools/equipment/suppliers/etc that one might use to build their own hardware hacking kit. I know last year a few guys showed up with fishing boxes and other things filled with parts that they used to mod their badges. It could range from suggesting a certain cheap multimeter to suggesting where one could purchase parts from cheaply. I've made a page for it on the HHV wiki (http://hhv.udarknet.com/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=hackit) where people can contribute. I have been really busy with getting ready for Shmoo and recovering from the extravaganza that it was so expect to see my postings in the next several weeks.

    Also please keep in mind that there will be kits for sale by the HHV and that this thread and contributions have nothing to do with the separate kit. This is meant to if anything augment this as I don't see the parts kit containing multimeters and such (but what would I know?). You help and contribution is much appreciated! If someone thinks this is a bad idea feel free to flame it down.
