  • Came across a GREAT tip a while back to measure the center to center spacing for 2 (same sized) holes.

    Use the calipers to measure the inside opening of one hole, then zero the calipers whilst making this measurement. Effectively now all measurements will have this distance subtracted.

    Now measure the outside to outside distance of the 2 holes and the reading will now represent the center to center spacing.

    This only works of the holes are the same size though, but still extremely useful tip.

  • Arghhh. I keep sending my comments to the “What’s on your mind” !!! I always scroll down too far before commenting.


    “Everyone with a backorder will get their stuff, it’s just going to take us a bit of time”

    WOW, what can I say ?? Fantastic.

    I don’t think I have ever come across a company that would honor the orders in this situation. In the past I have had orders cancelled and money refunded days after placing an order and getting confirmation, but not here at SF.

    SF, you ROCK!!!

  • OK, a little confused. Got SF e-mail saying the order is back ordered and I won’t be charged until available but also a message from PayPal confirming the payment !!??

  • YAYYYYY!!! “Thank you for your order! ” WOW, this brought SF to a crawl through !!!

    Very amusing

  • SIM cards from here might be worth trying. Seem pretty low cost for low data usage.

  • Wohoo, got mine last night. Unfortunately in my eagerness I connected the power supply for the GPS module the wrong way around :( A real shame there wasn’t a canister of blue smoke included so I could re-fill the GPS module :(

    Loved the anticipation and what was included. Probably won’t use much, but well worth the money in entertainment value alone.

  • Wohhoo. Got one : :) :) Will be sitting by the door with bated breath until it arrives.

  • Counterfeit chips are not “property that doesn’t belong to you”. This was proven in the Sparkfun multimeter escapades recently. If you violate someones IP, patents or copyright you cannot claim to ‘own’ the offending products. the fact that the end user is the one sat with a useless chunk of plastic at the end is irrelevant.

    Is this a smart move by FTDI? Who knows!!! Probably not. Is it legally sound? Absolutely.

No public wish lists :(
