    I have to say, this year’s method definitely had it’s ups and downs.

    I understand the need to prevent bots or whatnot. The captcha or the quiz work fine. The captcha wasn’t as fun as the quiz was last year IMO. The big thing that got me this year was the length of time. I liked it better that at least when you fail (which I’ve done my fair share of over the years) that you fail within a few hours. Not spending all day failing.

    Otherwise, didn’t get anything, but happy to try, and happy to be a SparkFun customer.

    C represents capacity. Since this is a 2000mAh battery, and continuous discharge is rated at 2C, you can safely discharge at a rate of 4000mAh continuously. I was also confused as to the C5A, but I chock that up to the poorly done datasheet as there were lots of other character errors in there as well.

    Theoretically yes, however, you’d have to be sampling the camera, and outputting data very VERY quickly. In reality, I don’t think that this is the best way to go about it.
    If you’re going to be using FM anyway, transmit the analog signal over FM (make sure you keep your deviation in check) and then you don’t need to deal with any of the problems with conversion to digital and back.

    None of these links seems to work for me. Sparkfun really needs to be hosting a copy of the manual. Does anyone have a copy? I’d rather not buy this without knowing there’s a manual available.

    I’m seconding this. After playing with this board and the 900MHz XBee Modules, you do need to short the diode to get it to work right. I looked at the datasheet for the XBee Pro 900 and it says that the module has 5V tolerant IO inputs. So you don’t need to worry about hurting the module. I’m not sure why the diode is dropping the levels below a logic 1 though.
    Thanks for the original comment AdamB, would never have thought of this if you hadn’t posted.

No public wish lists :(
