Mistakes in the book will be dealt with here - harshly!
Final sentence should read: "which is 100,000 picoFarads, or .1 microFarads"
Figure 12-3 should read "To pin 9 of expansion connector (P4)".
The thermistor used in the temperature sensor project of chapter 13 has
been replaced by Mouser part # 527-1003-50K
Step 5 should read "Use nippers to cut off pin 5 from SIP resistor RN1".
If you accidently cut off pin 6 of the SIP as the figure says,
it's ok since that pin is used by the light sensor and it needs to be cut off too.
The Picture shows soldering the wire to Pin 7 of the expansion connector.
It should be Pin 10 like the text. The text is right.
