  • This company and its employees just keeps upping its/their awesomeness factor. :D

  • Dear Sparkfun. I want to ask my girlfriend to the prom, but I’ve recently had a rash break out in my face of all places. I’ve tried rubbing it with snake oil, but it didn’t help. What should I do?

      1. I don’t have Twitter, so I have to post here instead.
  • The first and third design remind me of a Danish Christmas tradition which may give you some inspiration. Christmas Hearts, as seen here: http://d200fahol9mbkt.cloudfront.net/item/470982/Christmas_Hearts1.jpg

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • 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.

No public wish lists :(
