Not to be off topic but is there any advice from the ones that have been in the industry for a while that you could share with a student who is studying to go into the industry soon?


If you really enjoy the work that is the single best thing that will get through a whole lot of random stuff you will come across in industry, like abusive bosses (they come and go, don't freak out if you randomly draw one for awhile, that too will pass) and flakey peers. If it's a technical field, never stop learning even if you have to do it on your time, the tech changes to fast to sit back with only past knowledge and skills. Treat all people as you would have them treat you. Try and enjoy the journey, many of us feels it's only a one time trip.

Stay on topic.

I usually stay on topic, although we've been having a conversation about karma for 6 pages.  Honestly what could you possibly have to talk about in the topic of karma for 6 pages?  It honestly just feels either like a post dump or little discussions that don't matter.  The entire point is in the title, karma is back.  I can't be the only one who feels like this.

I agree, this veered off into Bar Sport territory pages back.

I jerked your chain a little, and it came right off. Sorry about that.

Perhaps worthless to you, but at best that is a subjective opinion. If we dropped the post count how would we ever know which members are the most prolific in the site statistic page linked below? I once 'won' a $200 credit from the Arduino store for being in the top five posters at the time, so I could personally never call post counts worthless, now could I?

The "Top Topic Starters" statistic is somewhat skewed - moderators get a new topic every time they move a misplaced thread. Mostly I forget to delete the redirection topic, so posts build up, which is why I'd like to see the redirection threads auto-destruct.

(I got a freebie too for being  a "top 5" poster, but because the award was completely out of the blue and not advertised, it can't be deemed an "incentive")

I honestly completely forgot that there was an arduino store.  I've always bought my arduino stuff from distributors in the US

Back on the subject of Kama.
How come that one of the most "challenging" posters has got a Kama of +1?
Makes no sense.

He is challenging in that his language ability or his intellect make it imposable to help him.
Surely that tells you the value of Kama.

Can you guess who he is Nick  ;)
