    Come on SF, throw us a bone. Give us something we can put between a 3.7v 2Ah LiPo cell and our Raspberry PIs, beaglebones, etc. I’m willing to pay for it, it just doesn’t exist

    You think Fluke was bad with the black & yellow case, wait til Microsoft hears about a maximum Power Point charger.

  • Tutorial - MYST Linking Book | about a month ago

    This brings back memories. I remember MYST being described as the most given, least played game ever written. Everybody’s grannie would buy them a copy of MYST so they could play that instead of horrible violent games like Wolfenstein, Doom, etc. Then it would sit in a pile of unused stuff until it could be decently thrown away. We even had a guy at work who kept trying to get us to change our daily Doom tournaments over to MYST because he did not like the satanic references.

    Does anyone remember the parody game, PYST?

    Nice tutorial, BTW. I’ve wondered what ViSi was like as a development system.

    OK, you guys wait at the checkout, grab the merchandise back out of the carts and throw them back on the shelf. The rest of you, you’re on the customer service phone lines.

    I’ve still got a bunch of these that I picked up in the ‘80s and they’re really great. I actually used them in a couple of projects when I was doing some contracting and my customers loved the retro look. The multiplex code is pretty simple and any microprocessor that can spare 11 I/O pins can drive these.

    Definitely worth a look, especially with today’s tiny processors.

    I guess I really was lucky.

    But surely Sparkfun can aim higher than airline standards, right?

    Airline tickets. They do business exactly that way. You select your seat, it puts a time-based hold on them that lets you hang onto the seat until you’ve paid, left the site or the hold expires.

    I’ve never had a seat evaporate on me between selection and paying for it.

No public wish lists :(
