If you find them, you’re good. And probably slightly creepy.


Can we somehow transform and take advantage of all that energy wasted inside gyms across the country?

  • Ha! I have zero influence when it comes to who wins this.

  • This is my favorite. Well done!

  • Sure, that’s definitely one of many solutions we could use. This obviously happened after we had already implemented a filter feature, though, and truth be told, we have a looooooong list of other features that our time is better spent working on. :)

  • Speaking of which, thank you for all the work you do on the forums! It’s very much appreciated.

  • While sales obviously drive our business (please buy all the things from us!), we want our community to include those who are only just starting to learn and aren’t necessarily ready to buy stuff yet (and who may never buy from us, for that matter). Then there are those who choose to purchase our parts through our distributor network to avoid expensive shipping and customs fees, and the ones who get things gifted to them.

    I’d rather a person who gets gifted a part can tell there’s a problem with a datasheet through the comments, than making them jump through hoops to get to the responsible engineer’s attention.

  • For the record, we also already have a comment filter in place where we essentially just enter a regex for certain words/whatever. Took us forever to figure out how they got through said filters before we realized they inserted non-printing characters in the middle of URLs and stuff, leading to beautiful regexes.

    I was going to paste one of them in here before I realized it would be filtered out by one of the other regexes and this comment wouldn’t show up. :)

  • Oscopes in hand

    That’d be engineering, not SWIT. SWIT’s more likely to set up Jenkins on your OpenStack instance than using an oscilloscope. We’d probably bust you for trying to add too many things to your cart, or for trying to hack our secret admin panel (not going to help you find it).

    Edit: I can see what you’re up to!

  • What’s wrong with Rockies fans, aside from eternal optimism and savagely dashed hopes?

  • One day we’ll show you the beard of the developer named Ross, and you guys will completely lose it.

  • I think Nate’s motorcycle fits in the elevator.
