ask my wife
Spell checker mistake should have said reputable
NO! this is a perfect world there are no such things as mistakes!
And that still doesn't explain why you decided to make a epic fail blog post, that has whipped up a world of shit, before contacting anyone with your problem board
2 still haven't answered my question of whom, its important to protect the dealer who sold this item but not important enough to contact them first, right?
first though that popped in my head was sparkfun, then I get wind your yapping about it on sparkfun IRC...
hmm the yahoo's who photocopy google image's and datasheet schematics then slap copyright 20xx sparkfun on them?
who were (until recently) selling 50 cent multiplexers for 5$ + shipping and a china ripoff soldering irons for MORE than the real deal hakko's?
Breifly sold counterfit 328's cause they thought they were neat after being screwed on them?
Is currently sponsoring (the dumbest) robot contest where the goal is to complete a task and destroy itself (preferably made with overpriced sparkfun parts)?
And used to spam our message board with advertisements with no other involvement in this community what so ever! (btw see that @ssh0le under my avatar, that was given to me here on this forum when I called them on spamming us by a sparkfun representative)
Yea those half whit children are as reputable as a guy wearing a old sears suit selling snake oil tonic out of the back of his rusted out VW bus (no matter how pretty the red box it comes in is)
IMO of course
