  • Why not extrude an entire meal?

  • Thanks for the reply, I figured it out. The LED strip I was running was being powered from the board, so it was drawing way too much current, causing the board to overload and shut down.

  • I agree. There were plenty more funny than this. From what it sounds the winner unknowingly stumbled upon an inside joke, or something similar. I have never seen anything that shows a “penchant” for dancing, but maybe that’s just me. Ah well, it’s their money and they can use it how they please.

    But if you guys do make a video where some Sparkfun people dance, I would love to see it.

  • That is excellent.

  • “Alright guy’s, we may have a wide selection of LED’s and a decent number of other small components, but it’s not enough. You on the left, group 10.1011, will flank Digikey from the west while I will lead group 11.0010 on a full frontal assault of MIT’s media lab in search for talented engineers. They will naturally follow the man sporting a beard on his face and math joke on his chest. Not to mention I will also have a keg of beer.” “Uhhh, about that keg…” “Dave?!”

  • I seem to be having a problem with my board resting every couple of seconds. I have tried soldering 120 Ohm equivalent resistance between vcc and the RST as well as a 10 micro-farad capacitor between RST and GND. Aside from removing R2 and C2 I don’t know where to go. Is that a good option? Will the Sparkfun FTDI programmer be able auto-reset? It’s not a super big deal if I can’t auto reset because where this is going it will not be removed for a long, long time.

  • I went to the datasheet, and removed the /datasheets/Components/General/3.jpg Which ended bizarrely.

  • The engineering club at my school needs a fundraiser. We really like old arcade games in that club. You guy have a coin acceptor. Are you thinking what I’m thinking?


  • Us four should be finished in about an hour! Screw it guys, I’m just going to change the florescent lighbang Us three should be finished in about an hour!

No public wish lists :(
