  • Agree with you ozchrisb. First thing I wanted to do today when I started to use it was to flash the OS to Ubilinux. Can’t do it. Why wouldn’t they ship the base block with the starter kit, instead of the base block? Oh yea, you can’t order the base block yet. Only pre-order.

  • Hi Alx, Thanks for your help on this. One problem, after I do:

    $ ruby -e “$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)”

    $ brew install coreutils

    $ brew install gnu-getopt

    I then run: sudo apt-get install dfu-util

    when I do this, I get this error:

    apt: invalid flag: -get

    Any thought to why -get isn’t there? Again, thanks for the posts on this

  • Thanks for doing this again, I missed the last one. Question for Nate and Pete: After a Maker creates their Maker project, i.e. (Arduino, BLE, breadboard, etc) and has a successful Kickstarter or Private Investment and has the resources to scale their project to the consumer level. How does a Maker do this for the electronic pieces of their project? Can Sparkfun help do this? Other companies in the US do this ? Any thoughts would be great! Thanks for all you do for the Maker community! Look forward to listening tomorrow. Gary B.

  • The line sensors don’t seem to want to follow the line. When I hooked the sketch up to Serial Monitor and printed out the values rLevel = rSen.read(); lLevel = lSen.read(); cLevel = cSen.read(); I get about 940 when there is no black line and it is just sitting on a white poster board.

    When I move the line sensor directly under a black sharpie line or black electrical tape, I about 980. This is true even when very close. If I put my figure over the sensor I get about 300. It seems like the sensor just isn’t giving much feedback when it is on a black line.

    Any help would be appreciated.
