A-ok here, no problems.

Well, I happen to do some ADA programming and every time I don't forget that the name "ADA' comes from the Countess of Lovelace, who was an English Mathematician and Writer. The first programmer, also called "the Queen of all the machines" (this definition comes form The Difference Engine, by William Gibson and Bruce Sterling).

Beautiful mind, and good portraits of her, I believe She was and interesting woman.

Lady Ada-Fruit … she is not my kind. Not so skinny, but funny hair.

btw. Her website is down for me. Completly unreachable at the moment.

I dig Fried's pink hair.

The Adafruit site seems to be functioning fine right now. Can't say the same for arduino.cc. Pages are taking a long time to load, and posting gives me time for a potty break.

Fine here as well with Free AVG. Just went and created a shopping list there. adafruit.com always loads slowly after their most recent facelift, too many high-def photos.

What I feel that they could improve on is to provide quantities in stock for all items. Some items don't have numbers and others do. I am guessing a threshold is set between "in stock" and "XXX in stock". I wish they would just say exact numbers for everything, like sparkfun does. At least I can track some products to see if they are popular/safe enough to use as parts for projects. If they are, they usually get stocked up to large quantities. Maybe I should just call them to find out.

For sure.

Compiling that information might take a lot more work, which increases costs, thus increasing price. With most companies, call or email. Often they will do backward summersaults to get your business.

Don’t get get information from one company then buy from another though. Nobody likes that, and you’ll quickly get shut out.

Still getting the same warnings here 12:29AM

ummm. Now I can see adafruit dot com with Safari on MacOSX. Without warnings.

anyone put a spell on it ?

Norton is a piece of shit. We stopped using it years ago because of false positives, extremely bad performance, and occasionally rendering a computer inoperable. I would not trust those idiots to untie a shoe lace. In my opinion.

Who do you trust with your security?

.

We are using Kaspersky at work since the new year. It’s slow, cumbersome and invasive. The opposite of transparent operation. Will I get used to it? Probably. Do I want to … hell no!

We've used Webroot the past few years. It slowly devours an enormous amount of disk space (I don't know if others do that; it can be manage through re-installation) but performance is good and false positives are very low. I have no idea how well it does at false negatives.

Thanks Chris, thanks CB.

.

System center endpoint protection (probably Microsoft product) at work. I tread carefully so I do not remember when it last triggered, not often, don't remember false positives.

Where I was working they used Trend Micro. Myself I used Eset or NOD. It's know by both names. Been using it for about 20 some years. Vary happy with it.

As to Adafruit, I just loaded their site with no problems.

Arduino.cc Everything is slow. I just moved and thought it was the new provider since I went with the lower speed.
