    • Very good once again :)

    • Dave,

      Just to let you know two of your internal article links are broken.

    • Do you have a way to influence the volume of the individual recordings? I think Chris is always a little bit more quiet than you.

    • The Beagle touch link results in nothing found.

    • what is a “jellybean application”

      is it like a single use program example I want to use a arduino to control my bigass air compressor, reading the pressure, data logging energy and air use and also logging and controlling the temperature with a separate window air conditionner to cool the tank and intake air (to condense all the water and maximise tank capacity)
      is that what you mean by jelly bean application ?

    • The Afghan mineral findings is just used to elevate the noise, so as to drown out valid signals.
      There are no satisfactory conditions to actually mine (roads, ports, utilities, and stable government). All current mines in Afghanistan are located very near borders, so it’s easier to get the needed infrastructure.'mineral'-strike-is-just-spin.html

    • Hey Dave & Chris,

      Nice show guys, you’re doing a great job!
      Congrats on the cool article in the Make blog too :)
      Just thought I’d mention the Maker Faire – I’ve attended and shown at two faires in Newcastle UK, the first was free to all and the second faire only cost a few pounds, bargain! I highly recommend you check one out if you get the chance, it’s a fantastically vibrant community.

      Maybe you should do a mini faire in Oz Dave, I’m sure there’d be the demand, they’ve recently had a Maker Faire in Africa – it really seems to be picking up pace worldwide!

      Loving all the industry/politics discussion, it’s great you’re airing important issues of this sort – all power to you!

      Over and out


    • awesome show guys. I’m also looking forward to see Arduino document.

      From Argentina, Cesar :)

    • Karl (not that Karl, the other Karl)

      You got a make blog mentioning. Hope it increases revenue :-)

    • Hi Dave,

      great show.

      You mentioned 8 Bit Computer remakes in FPGAs. There is a website that hosts itself (!) on a discrete 74xx based CPU. Check out


    • In the podcast you why more people are from a software background rather than hardware in the hacker/maker community. The believe the simple answer is that more people write software than develop hardware, at least in the US. In fact, a significant percent of “software developers” here do not have degrees in engineering or math therefore do not have any knowledge of digital logic or analog circuty.

      Another major problem is cost. With beat up old PC, Linux and an internet connection you can learn to program for free. Doing even basic micro controller projects require parts, soldering iron, multimeter, and the list goes on.

    • Dave you have a hack space in Sydney
      It’d be cool if you could attend one of their meetings (with your camera) and do a vblog on it.
      They have a NYC Resistor Maker bot, and seem to hold some cool events.


    • Great show guys.

      It is hard to find this type of content NOT made by someone trying to sell you something.
