How to use a lithium battery for a 3.3V low-consumption circuit?
Power just the CPU with a coin cell GPIO pin drives P-Channel Mosfet to switch power to the transmitter and sensor (regulator is optional) read the sensor send out data switch...

connect termistor to the ATtiny ADC inputs
You may also linearize the thermistor with a similar resistor in parallel, then let the AVR linear-interpolate the rest: http://www.capgo.com/Resources/T...

Old electronics
Old: any SOIC processor with leads not QFN or BGA, monochrome LCD displays Classical:thru-hole in general, DIP chips, 5V TTL logic. Ancient: Anything with an UV window on top,...

Issues with internal reference inaccauracies
Why not using a fuel gauge IC? those are laser trimmed inside the silicon to rule out inaccuracies: http://www.ti.com/lsds/ti/power-...

Touch Sensing (Capacitive, Proximity, others?)
You sir should seriously consider showing your powers on TV : )  The only things that lit up when I touch are my phone and my GF lol

How to protect Oscilloscope inputs from overvoltages?
Years ago, had to design this 18KV fence charger for a start-up: They were really paranoid about their DSO and accidents, so we did this: - Wear rubber gloves - Used mostly...

Touch Sensing (Capacitive, Proximity, others?)
The transistor is good idea, though I'd replace the BJT for a JFET, Mosfet or opamp/comparator IC BJTs (PNP, NPN) respond to current, they don't "see" skin charge. JFET (radios,...

[SOLVED]Removing click sound while muting and unmuting mic in earphones
I'd put the R-C circuit on V+ to fade in/out the mic bias. Just a thought.
