I am the proud new owner of a soldering iron. What are some good first projects? Must be cheap and at least marginally useful. Blinky lights are a plus! [more inside]

Can you recommend some good stores like http://www.goldmine-elec.com/ and http://www.sparkfun.com/
I'm looking for little motors, gears, metal rods, rubber rollers/grommets as well as electrical components.

Can you identify this connector? It's actually for bluetooth in the Mac Pro, but I want to figure out what this 10-pin connector is officially called so that I can buy a male analog of it. [more inside]

Cycle Computer to Computer conversion. I would like to run the wire from the magnetic sensor to my laptop and then handle the data programmatically. What is the best and cheapest way to do this so I can read from the port using established methods? Parallel port, USB? Cannibalize a cycle computer or build from scratch?
