    I just ordered the old version of this product and it is literally being shipped to my house today. What are the chances that I got this version and you guys gave me an early Christmas surprise?

    Desperate to tap a younger readership demographic, National Geographic attempts to ride the internet meme wave and introduces “Awkward Family Photos: The Jungle Chronicles”

    After a recent late night binge, I arrived home to this - my family’s attempt at an intervention. Scared straight, I’m sober for 3 weeks now thanks to Rob and Dave’s patented “You could end up like us”-intervention program. Thanks guys!

    After Rob’s brutal overthrow of Nate, he tightened up ship and implemented a monkey suit dress code. Sparkfun is forever changed under Rob’s Bananarchy… but is it for the better?

    Hallway interactions became awkward and relations were strained between Moe Hawk and Cowboy ever since Moe turned Cowboy’s cat into a meme… Cowboy’s cat used to be fun & games but now he’s all business.

    That is totally over the top dude. You are taking a lot of liberties there. I stand up for Mr. C’s innocence. Don’t make me start an “Occupy Sparkfun”.

    So far so good with this product using an XP box, plan to use it with Mac OSX Snow Leopard and Parallels XP partition later.
    However, I did not find it “pretty easy” to “grab a pair of pliers and pop these two hex nuts out of the black plastic housing” w/o damaging the ‘connector guide’ (the metal shroud around the pins). The connector guide is attached to the piece of metal that the hex nuts are attached to, therefore when you try to “pop” them out the whole piece gets mangled. What’s more is that there is a metal piece just below the top connector guide that the hex nuts are also attached to which will likely also get mangled. In the end I just pulled the connector guide off, clipped out the hex nuts, re-bent metal pieces to straight and super glued it all back together. Wasn’t too bad, and it doesn’t look that bad, but it was not as easy as I expected.
    Try to work the hex nuts around slowly and gently and they may loosen up enough to allow every thing to remain in tact. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not dissatisfied, I’m just trying to help others out…

No public wish lists :(
