  • News - Free Day, Lotteries, and … | about a year ago

    What about a loyalty points program? You know, like “$1 in SparkBucks for every $10 spent”? I don’t know, it just occurred to me. It’s not really a “Free Day” thing, but it does reward customer loyalty…

  • Product PGM-08278 | about a year ago

    Yeah, a J-Link is also $300, unless you qualify for a $60 J-Link EDU.

  • Product CAB-11579 | about a year ago

    I want a USB-to-115v mains cable just to annoy all the people that freaked out over the Cerberus cable.

  • Product PRT-11367 | about 2 years ago

    Yeah, they may be cheaper, but there’s also something to supporting a company you like. Particularly a company that I’ve gotten things free from, twice.

  • Product LCD-11062 | about 2 years ago

    In that case, is there any (relatively easy) way to fix the older version of the board to use the correct inductor? I have the older one too.

  • Product PRT-08879 | about 3 years ago

    I’d love to see more QFP adapters in general, particularly ones for the most common pin counts (32, 44, 64, 100). Of course, if I’d just get off my butt and learn Eagle, I could just have BatchPCB make me up a bunch of them… ;)

  • Product DEV-09949 | about 3 years ago

    There’s a long story about this I read somewhere on a blog (probably Adafruit or EMSL)… but the bottom line is that the first Arduinos had a layout error, and by the time it was noticed, the first shields had already been produced too.

  • Product TOL-10525 | about 3 years ago

    After all, people routinely stick reflow ovens in their kitchens, right?
    Just me?
    …Never mind.

  • News - Happy Free Day | about 3 years ago

    Oh, if only there were a way to charge each and every idiot who complains that they didn’t get their free stuff. You’d be able to finance an infinite number of Free Days just from the money you’d be raking in from the WAAAAAAAMBULANCE.
    I was one of the lucky ones last year. This year I tried, made it to the first quiz question, couldn’t submit it before time was up. It was frustrating, it was disappointing, but folks, THAT’S LIFE. DEAL WITH IT.

  • News - The final new product pos… | about 3 years ago

    “Standard” I2C plug? As far as I know there is no mechanical standard for I2C.
