  • When I got started in electronics I had a lot of experience in physics and computer science. My first board used and AVR that I programmed with C using AVR studio. I could figure out the code and I could figure out the circuitry.
    But I was a beginner.
    After I had more experience I realized how foolish I was to be wasting all my time using these klunky tools. I knew there was a place for them, but not for what I was doing. When I learned about Arduino, my life became easy. I was no longer a beginner because I was using Arduino. Wish I had been using it the whole time, but you live and learn.

  • I like that idea!

  • Scott, I really don't think SFE is trying to invent a high bandwith sever, just test to see how well their website behaved. I'm sure if they had unlimited resources they could buy the fastest server, but they are a business. A very generous business that does things in unique ways. Good job spark fun. Ignore the sour pusses. Although, I my self was disappointed in getting nothing, I still love the idea.

  • I'm pretty sure Sorry uses cards that you draw, not dice.

  • AMAZING!

  • Kerm is right. I could not figure out what I was doing wrong with these until I scrolled down and read his comment. These things are super easy to use, as long as you don't follow SparkFun's pin configuration.
