    Sparkfun Electroncs, selling NSA spy technology to the masses (bird not included).

    Is this available to international customers? (I’m in the UK).

  • Product LCD-09363 | about 2 years ago

    In the latest version of my library (https://github.com/TCWORLD/gLCD-Library) I have fixed a bug in the printing fuction which means that the ‘\n’ character now moves to the next line on the screen (it was supposed to in the older versions as well, but I made a mistake that meant it never happened).

    Speaking of which, it might be time to change the Arduino Stackable Header Kit ( https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10007) to include the 10 pin instead of the 6 pin connector.

    I suppose. I was thinking it replaces the 6pin header in your shopping cart when you’re buying them B)

    “so now you need a 10-pin header instead of an 8-pin ”

    Technically you need a 10-pin header instead of one of the 6-pin headers. For an Uno it is now 1x10 + 1x6 + 2x8, whereas it used to be 2x6 + 2x8. Just saying :D

    The screen is controlled with a Serial link, which tends to be fairly slow - This means that objects may take a couple of 10ths of a second to be drawn. I am working on a new optimised version of the library which speeds things up slightly, but there is a limit to how fast the uC can run.

  • Product PRT-10255 | about 2 years ago

    It should work fine. In fact, that is exactly one this one is: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11231

  • Product LCD-11062 | about 2 years ago

    Does it work when not in highspeed mode? There shouldn’t be any issue with using those pins. Also, does the test pattern work. Would you be able to open an issue on my github page and answer there rather than here.

    Well anyway, the point was, those switches are < £16, so they wont be stopped by customs.

    For the record, I have no problem paying the VAT, what annoys me is paying royal mail £8 on top of the customs fees for doing nothing but mishandle parcels, attempt to deliver them but dont tell anyone, and leave them in dustbins (which has happened several times).

No public wish lists :(
