  • The pros and cons of working here - since we can run over to the front desk to pick up orders, there's no need for a red box to ship them. I've definitely got a good collection of heavy duty plastic zip bags at home though.

  • If there was no sustained arc with 5v... how would those supplies hold up to being placed in series?

  • One example of assembly in Arduino/C that I've seen (and is used quite often) is the Neopixel library for WS2812 addressable LEDs. With its timing based protocol and predictable clock speeds on AVR boards, it brute forces timing by actually including "nop" (No OPeration) commands to take an exact number of clock ticks between commands. The downside is definitely a lack of portability, the library is pretty sizable since there is different assembly code for different processors and even differing clock speeds.

  • Alice in Wonderland did some odd seeding. I found "the" in 5 doubles, 2 triples, and a quintuple on your example. I'm curious how that happened- a bug in the generation code, strange text in the source, or what. A quick drop in on the html version on didn't pop up with even a single instance of double "the".

  • "BachPCB" sounds like a good name for an embedded board built by these folks.

  • That looks like some sort of flux removal- water, rubbing alcohol, or possibly some specialized formula. Electronics solder wire (including the one we sell and use in production) will often have a flux core to allow better wetting and flow when you solder your parts in. The residue left after soldering is often a little sticky, slightly conductive, and may eventually corrode your board. It's a good idea to clean the board when you are done, just make sure you let the board dry completely before connecting it to power.

  • Looking back, it seems that the crowdfunding campaign delivered exactly what they promised. Too bad there was a lot of small print.

  • Dual SIM phones are actually amazingly popular in many countries. It allows for people to have a single phone for work/business and personal use, or to have separate plans from different carriers for data/texting/voice/etc.

    As far as the function, it should just be controlled through the software side of things, which SIM module connections go though. Pretty cool stuff, and it's starting to gain a little traction in the US now too.

  • Mine too!

  • This may be why you don't want to mix beer and engineers. We do it as often as possible!
