  • Just tell people you’re an astronaut, job done.
    Or maybe, ‘We dont sell servers’ ;)

  • What swayed your decision to use microUSB instead of miniUSB? As soon as Nokia, Sony Ericsson and Motorola started using them in their mobile phones, we had a 600% increase in charger block repairs.
    I definatly prefer the strength of the miniUSB and its not much bigger.

  • Member108496: trivia questions to get money are a terrible idea :( i first heard about sparkfun from the previous free day and i love your site but i don’t know anything about electronics. i just got some tools that i use all the time and i remember your site every time i do.<br /><br />

    “Goal: Educate new users on the basics.” i’m afraid all you’re going to do is discourage new users from trying to participate, and making people feel bad for trying to answer 10 questions and winding up with negative 30 dollars of credit.<br /><br />
    <br /><br />
    either give stuff away or don’t do anything. but making people who aren’t experts feel stupid isn’t a good way to promote your site.

    Now is the perfect time to start revising. You have until January to learn what you can and if this free day encourages you to learn more about a hobby then even if you dont win, you’ve gained knowledge which is much more important :)<br />

  • What kind of trace width would be needed for 25-30amp?

  • Typo, incorrect spelling of oomlaut for the link :)

  • And thats why Marcomm doesnt draw schematics ;)
    Does Tim in engineering have a special project, or are they his 2 apprectice(Michael/Pearce)?

  • When will the WiFlys be back in stock? I’ve never used one but at that price its worth a go :)

  • Im the wrong side of the pond and my UAV wont make it that far yet ;)

  • That sucks nate, maybe your next competition should be UAV package finding, whoever finds it with a rover/uav keeps everything but the pics ;)

  • Did they get to call dibs on their new spot or was it pre-planned? ;)

No public wish lists :(
