“it’s not a bug, it’s a "feature”

“be careful, temporary fixes inevitably become permanent solutions”

  • really?

  • Is there going to be a replacement for this item? I was just about to order it only to find out it is retired

  • reminds me of an adage I heard once “temporary fixes tend to become permanent solutions, so make sure they last”

  • … and I said, I don’t care if they lay me off either, because i told, I told Bill that if they moved my desk one more time, than, than I’m, I’m quitting, I’m going to quit. And, and I told Don too, because they’ve moved my desk four times already this year, and I used to be over by the window, and I could see the squirrels, and they were married, but than, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn’t bind up as much, and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and it’s not okay because if they take my stapler than I’ll set the building on fire….

  • Thanks Pete, This video would be an excellent segue to Frequency mixers. Maybe build a Bat Detector?

  • I’m currently stalled on this project because of funding (kids and home repairs taking priority) but my latest rev for the audio board was successful. here is a photo of the board: http://assets-cloud.enjin.com/users/9995617/pics/original/2830119.jpg I have moved from the raspberry pi to an Olimex A20 which handles audio much better, has a more forgiving power input and supports a SATA HDD. I’m saviing for a touchscreen and should be able to pick up the project again soon.

  • First thing I thought of when I saw “continue reading” was Starship Troopers “would you like to know more?”, perhaps in the spirit of letting your geek shine you should change the button text.

  • Seriously, next time we go on tour and you say you want to bring your pet “Rex” along… I thought “Rex” was your dog!!!

  • Um…. I think you mis-understood me when I said “I don’t see the point.”

  • nice… I was actually going to post something similar, but you beat me to the punch
