  • Doesn’t even come with pins!

  • Vetco, Seattle/Bellevue, great local electronic store with expert staff, pretty much the only place for discrete components around here.

  • And to test the servers orders have to be completed within the day!

  • It is easier and more fun for me to earn $100. This is worse than most jobs (and it pays less). Still love the idea of a free day though

  • “Despite it’s obvious advantages the Sparkfun safety suit has not been the holiday seller we were hoping”

  • The point of increased automation is to increase the value of human labor. Just like Excel hasn’t eliminated accountants so too will future people have far greater and greater tools. Slowly bad jobs will be eliminated and quality of life will improve because of cheaper costs. In the middle ages more than 50% of the world population were farmers. Are there less farmers now? Yes, are there less jobs because of it? No

  • It seems you have RIGHT and GBUF broken out to a lineout type output. The GBUF (around 1.23 V) is appropriate for headphones but I’m concerned about connecting it to the amplifier ground since it would have to source enough current to set the amplifier’s ground potential to a 1.23 V. Is it safe to assume that the load on the IC will be minimal/safe?
    I was working on a project involving the VS1053 and an amplifier when I saw this video, previously I had planned to use bypass capacitors on the LEFT and RIGHT channel and set the amp ground potential to analogue ground but it seems this may be unnecessary and I could just use GBUF instead. Have you experienced any problems in doing this?

No public wish lists :(
