    Too bad this doesn’t have an adjustable low voltage cutoff. It looks like it’s capable of way overdischarging a single NiMH cell and would be a lot safer with a cutoff set to around 1.05 volts. There ain’t much energy left in a NiMH if you discharge it below that level, but it does a lot of damage in terms of shortening the life.

    Just wanted to report, I compiled a gcc cross compiler, and lpc2k_pgm, on linux from current source code. You have to grab appropriate C startup code and a machine header file from WinARM or somewhere, and then it’s pretty painless.

    I did run the Coridium software in VirtualBox under linux to initially check out the board and play with it.

    Really nifty entry-level board!

    3.7 volts is only “nominal” and is misleading. A freshly charged Lithium Ion or Lithium Ion Polymer cell is 4.2 volts, XBee spec is 3.6 V, so yeah if it was me I wouldn’t try to run them directly off the cell.

    Why is the system calling me “madashell?” I’m not mad :-)

    I don’t give a crap about an IDE, but would appreciate a pointer for developing on linux. Something more helpful than “use gnuarm.”

    I dont feel the need to be civil to these monsters, and this captures my carefully considered reaction perfectly:

    SparkFun on the other hand, you’re a classy outfit and valuable resourcfe.

No public wish lists :(
