  • Is this not what you are looking for:


    I’m new to a bunch of this sort of thing, but I thought it did have that capability.

  • Awesome, congratulations. I recently made a similar move (Help Desk -> Sys Admin), and have a similar standing with the old team (rubber bands instead of Nerf darts). Fun stuff.

    I mention the “general purpose definition” thing because our Help Desk was always called for stuff that wasn’t remotely within the standard spectrum of responsibilities, I thought it would be funny if Sparkfun was the same way (and maybe it is anyway).

  • Tech Support personnel model your shirts? (Assuming i’m not mistaken on who that is, and they haven’t changed departments). Sounds like the general purpose definition of “tech support” we have at my company :-)

  • Nice kilt/vest/flashes, guy in the kilt!

  • You have some seriously shiny coins! Is your photographer a collector or something?

  • There are none, since it is all of them. The only related product would be itself, and given the types of energy involved (and it’s apparent over-unity), that is an infinite loop you don’t want to get involved in.

  • Admittedly, I forgot all about Free Day, too caught up with work. Congrats to people that got something cool though!

  • For one thing, there is a HUGE difference in ease of use and approachability between FPGAs and the Arduino platform. I can’t stress enough how big of a difference it really is.
    Secondly, there aren’t many good cheap FPGA boards out there. They all seem to start around $50 and go up (I have seen them over $2500).

  • I think that may have been one of the greatest ads for anything. Ever.
    I like the little dance at the end too. Awesome.

  • I wonder if people realize that a server can stay up without a connection getting through. As a matter of fact, an active refusal of connection when there is a heavy load is rather common to ensure that a server does stay up when it is getting many connection attempts.
    I can’t wait to see data on server load, should be interesting.

No public wish lists :(
