3586  Forum 2005-2010 (read only) / Bar Sport / Video theft on the neinernet on: July 06, 2010, 04:00:15 pm
So friday evening I had a brain fart / storm and thought that I could make a decatron style tube out of garbage and led's

it came out kinda nice and I posted a ton of pic's and a short video on my website, I also submitted it to hack-a-day, they liked it but wanted to post the video on youtube so they could embed it, which is fine with me

seconds later mahalo.com swoops in and claims that it contains copyrighted material from their site

I have since called them for 1 hour in a row getting the same "we cant get your call right now" message and have sent at least a dozen emails from their contact us form with no response

What they are doing is theft, plain and simple, and I encourage anyone that has or uses sites that link with their system to think very hard before submitting any of their original content

And the worst part is they wont even man up and pick up a telephone

yea its a nice board, I would use it, but not for 60 bucks, especially since for 10$ more you can get the radio shack one that comes with more stuff and has a couple extra features

um, I use a old single core athalon64 with windows xp on it as my electronic workbench table

a good keyboard to me is more important than the machine (unless I were to start writing stuff that took days to compile) aside from the display

just out of sheer overkill look into processing, that is what the IDE is based on and it spits out java exe's for nix mac windows and web pages

its pretty easy to goof around in too

It's all about money.

yes it is

If you put more stuff in there (unnecessary stuff), it costs more money to manufacture.

yes, dip chips are a small market in 2010, so do you design a special super packed every nm counted for chip, or do you use the same ic as your smd package and add a breakout frame to fit the dip package?

heck google search for videos of fairchild semi, there is one from "the day" (seriously the 60's) even then they were packing tiny square chips to large 0.1 spacing breakout frames to do the dip form factor

all that needed to happen was the removal of hand soldering which came quick

Comparable price. I consider this is a lot of money for just 10ml flux.

for hobby use it goes a loooooooooooooong way (i have some cheaper 3$ rosen flux stuff from the same people, dont think I have even put a dent in the pen yet, but for the price I am not wasting it either)
