  • I’d like to add a +1 for talking about distortion, clipping, tone modification,and all that too. Also, I’d like an ATP about the magic of how a wah pedal circuit simulates a large variable capacitance. http://www.geofex.com/article_folders/wahpedl/wahped.htm#secretcap

  • Thank you Static, HonDon7, and anyone else who gets it and spoke up. I teach people how to use Arduinos in art. I was constantly having to find the right cable to connect to whichever board was in front of me, or try to keep track of little adapters, and it was becoming a nuisance. I took 3 USB cables, and soldered them up in this fashion (after consulting my USB learned friends)and made my own. It worked great for what I need it for. I’m very glad that there is now a better made one available, and that it works great for what it is meant for. To the rest of you…well…you act as though someone was going to force you to buy and use one of these. Or that its mere existence is somehow offensive. Not a cable you want? Awesome, you just saved $6. Personally, my workbench and I are happier now :)

  • YAY Jenn!!! I can now say “I knew her when…..” ;-)

  • Just wondering if anyone at Sparkfun realizes what a massive hassle it is that the analog output protection isn’t designed into the board. It takes this from being hugely and immediately useful to me having to search for another possible solution.

  • Finally found good Arduino code examples - http://psurobotics.org/wiki/index.php?title=Pololu_Micro_Serial_Servo_Controller - Out of curiousity why does Sparkfun have links to a Basic Stamp example, a .NET example, but no Arduino examples. Strange that…to my mind anyway.

  • I’m just throwing in a vote for carrying a DC SSR as well. This is a great one at a great price, btw, so thank you!!!

  • Please let us know what we can do if anything. Sad that the way the laws are written companies have to “vigorously” defend their copyrights and trademarks - often to ridiculous and pointless lengths.
    Oh, and Mr McFarland - I am the owner of ComeOnNoOneOwnsATrademarkOnThisDoThey? You should expect a letter from my lawyer soon. ;-)

  • I’m pretty jealous you guys!!! Have fun for me!!!

No public wish lists :(
