Hey, Paul!
I checked out your website, as you may know. I wish I were closer to being able to try out one of those controllers, but I have to get these last four classes out of the way: two in the summer, and two in the fall.

Oh, today is Freedom From Class day for me... freedom for a couple of weeks, anyway... :-)

Hey Intrigued! I read about the certain thing that you mentioned! That's an awesome idea that I wouldn't mind doing someday too! Aren't I being really sneaky with my secret coded language? I even made a certain thing that would help in the process of doing what you have planned.

We are SOOO sneaky!

Soooo Sneaky...

Yeah, I've even wondered if a person might be able to make a little money doing such a thing.

Which reminds me: is there a thread somewhere on smart charging??? I need to start some research in that area...

If you want information on smart charging, then don't look at my credit cards. That would be more related to "impulse charging", which helps the batteries to desulfate.

Yeah, I'm with you on the impulse charging.

At least to desulfate is better than to be desulfeaten...

Hey Intrigued, I'm in the mood for a good old fashioned oprah joke... Let's see...

Oprah made a record. She used to be a rock star. When you would play her record backwards, you could actually hear the sound of her getting thinner.

Hey, let's see here. I submitted the gerber files to futurlec, and they sent a message back asking me if everything was OK. I have the money for all 3 of the boards thanks to Adrian! Thank you! I just have to wait for 3-4 days now for the stupid paypal money to transfer to my bank so I can order it. I forgot about that. In the days of instantaneous transfers, what's up with that?

It should be called PaySlowPoke.

Did you ask them about electrical testing and setup fee waiving? I'm excited to see this continueing to move along. I suppose we are still looking at a few weeks before the component values are selected and 3 beta-boards are sent to lucky testers.

I hear ya about the Paypal thing. Ridiculous. I wonder if that's how they make money? Make you wait and get interest or something while they 'process' the transaction.

Haha... lets see... they put through 12 billion in transactions in a year. Say the average delay is 1.75days (to make the math easier and more conservative) that's a 60 million dollar float on hand at all times. What's the interest on 60m? I vote that a mod has to go back through the last 120 pages and remove all of these off-topic posts.
