  • News - New Product Friday: Just … | about 2 years ago

    Thanks, that does make sense. I was assuming that since their watch had been displayed at the Maker faire, it would be open source.

    So the Solder:Time kit can’t be tinkered with, in order to add new functions, but yours can? Off the top of my head I can imagine a few functions that would do well with the display, such as an alarm, a stopwatch and displaying the date in US and EU format, but just day and month of course.

    So let me see if I got this straight. The Big Time Watch Kit is Sparkfun’s version of Spikenzie Labs kit, and you have changed the IC?

    The reason I ask is I’m a bit confused why Sparkfun would make an almost exact copy of something thought up by another company. Unless Spikenzie is one of your companies as well?

  • News - E-Textiles Galore | about 3 years ago

    I completely agree with you, John, and I don’t exactly qualify for being a dinosaur. The idea of textiles and electronics is fine, but this is just pointless, to use it for showoff. Yay, I have a dress that has blinking lights. Make e-textiles that have a purpose and a function, not just some random bling bling, thank you.

  • News - Free Day is January 13th,… | about 3 years ago

    Thanks, but by exclusive I mean if you give out $100 like last year, PLUS whatever credit you get from the amount of years since you first ordered something, or if you’re skipping the part with the $100.<br />
    <br />
    And let me see if I understood you right. If I choose to partake in the quiz, I forfeit (sp?) the credits I would have gotten from the first order?<br />
    <br />
    Sorry btw, I thought the post would have gone to the thread I replied to.

    Oh, and if you decided to take the quiz and get to a question you can’t answer, will there be a possibility to opt out and take your credits, or will you need to choose an answer before opting out?

  • News - Free Day is January 13th,… | about 3 years ago

    Wait, so are the amounts in the above post exclusive or instead of the $100 from last year? I.e. would we get $100 plus X years of credit, or just the X years of credit to begin with?<br />
    <br />
    And you don’t have to buy anything right away, just log in to claim it? Because in that case, I foresee your servers being flooded with people whom, at exactly 9 AM, will all log in and take out their credit straight away, meaning the $150,000 will be gone in the blink of an eye.

  • News - SparkFun Heads to Denmark | about 4 years ago

    So I assume it’s not likely that they will drop by and read these comments before they return home? Of course they can’t meet all their customers, but at least it would be good to know if they’re going any interesting places nearby, and maybe be able to recommend some places. It would be a shame to not meet them when they’re this close, and it’s a lifetime opportunity. I would be surprised if they found something else electronics wise in Denmark to come back for, to be honest.

  • News - SparkFun Heads to Denmark | about 4 years ago

    When I read about the Nevada rocket, I wondered why you hadn’t heard about the rocket being built here in Denmark. Now I know that you were way ahead of me.
    The rocket launch didn’t take place in Copenhagen though, but in Nex? which is a town located on Bornholm, an island located far behind Sweden. Also, they did go through with the launch and the countdown, and the whole thing went down on the scheduled day, but it turned out that their valves had been frozen, possibly from the rocket having been a little too long on the ship used to sail it from Copenhagen to Nex?. Their plan is to relaunch it in Summer 2011.
    Considering that Nate is in Copenhagen for a few days, maybe it would be a good idea to go meet and personally thank him for Sparkfun. I’m wondering, what are you planning to do while in Denmark? Are you just sticking to Copenhagen or are you going to ?rhus, ?lborg or Odense as well? Those are the biggest and most wellknown cities in Denmark.

  • News - Organization chart! | about 4 years ago

    First off, awesome organization chart! Second off, could you ask MarComm what chart program they used to make it? Unless it’s just Photoshop or Illustrator but I really hope not. And third off, I wish you guys were in need of programmers, or that you were a game company. Heck, I just wish I find a game company that is as awesome and is as much fun to work for as you guys.

No public wish lists :(
