Silverlight 4 in Action, Silverlight 5 in Action

  • Product COM-07836 | about 2 years ago

    Are these a custom sparkfun design or is this an acquisition? I’m trying to figure out how to get buttons like this in different sizes.

  • Product PRT-09536 | about 2 years ago

    It depends on whether you’re working on MIDI IN, or MIDI OUT/THRU.

    MIDI Out and thru get pin 2 soldered to ground. Do NOT solder pin 2 to ground for MIDI IN. It needs to float or else you’ll get a noisy ground loop.

    Schematic and my own OSH board design here: http://10rem.net/blog/2012/03/13/designing-the-open-source-hardware-net-gadgeteer-midi-module

  • Product BOB-09598 | about 2 years ago

    In the schematic, it looks like pins 4 and 5 are reversed for all the MIDI connectors.

    Well, it would, if the contest was only for new people. It wasn’t, so the ad doesn’t sum up anything related to this.

    What many here are complaining about (and you as well, I assume) is that the current customers aren’t entitled to some sort of boon just because they’re a current customer.

    It was a contest, not a breadline.

    Otherwise, this just pisses off everyone that didnt win.

    Please look up the definition of “contest”

    Scammed? Please go look up the definition.

    Wow, just wow at some of the comments here. I can’t believe the sense of entitlement some people have.

    I found the captcha approach a bit boring, but tried it in between other things today. No, I didn’t win, but I don’t get on Sparkfun’s case over it. Sheesh.

    Thank you Sparkfun for creating the contest and giving away the money. I think one bit of constructive feedback from all this was that the recaptcha approach was boring. I figured you’d try something different next year anyway.

    Sounds like time to get a new job :)

    I have refreshed, shift-refreshed etc. Just hit it from another browser and it worked. Some sort of odd caching issue, I guess. Glad to see it’s working, though. Thanks.

    I know that. That’s why I said it’s not something I recommend as general practice. Did you see the image I linked to?

No public wish lists :(
