“it’s not a bug, it’s a "feature”

“be careful, temporary fixes inevitably become permanent solutions”

  • 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

  • I’ve been working on my own custom board. I’m using a TDA7719 for audio switching and processing, and a Raspberry Pi with a touchscreen for a GUI. I have a working prototype and some new boards are being turned right now that will hopefully be the final revision. I’m willing to share more details and my project files, as long as it is understood that I am not an engineer so my design is far from perfect and this project is far from complete.

  • Good to know, thanks for the tip, I was wondering what that noise was. I got it working BTW, it was a mixture of problems. my signal to RST was below 70% of Vd (bad math on my part), so chip never came out of reset. And hence, no response to the power up command.
