EEVblog #175 - Project Sagan
« on: May 30, 2011, 08:33:57 pm »
congratulation Dave !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

this is the best "project" a human being can start. A pessimist would say it costs time and a lot of money,
but believe me every second you can spend on such project is the real second of your live,
don't miss them and you will enjoy it! everything else didn't really matter!

I started 3 of such projects (btw, with 3 womans which multiplicates fun),
and i'm (still - even if the oldest project is now on "i need a new car" trip) very happy i did it.
Especially my lst "project" is real fun now, it is the "whats that?, why?" phase

I don't want to be human! I want to see gamma rays, I want to hear X-rays, and I want to smell dark matter ...
I want to reach out with something other than these prehensile paws and feel the solar wind of a supernova flowing over me.

OH my , the next project will be a humidity detector ... with siren   ;D

Is it a she or he ?

Send my regards and give my congrats at your partner who helped you in this project,
she did the hard work after all ..  ;)

I was also the first child in the family , and every one around me was acted wacky because of that ,
and this probably effected me too , and now I behave as wacky from time to time  ..     :D  :D  :D  :D

Hahaa i just watched the vid, made me laugh anyway :D

Our little project is just turning 17 months now and i never fail to be amazed at how quickly she can learn something new or adapt. If you look at it from an engineering point of view it shows how much we have to learn to get our macines any way close to it.

Congratulations!

Wow! You will be "out of free time" very soon ;)

Congratulations!

I have a similar project, 10 month old now, and she is really the best thing happened to me.

1) i thought of proposing this project to Dave months back but i didnt make it. now my dream comes true. Dave Junior!
2) this is a serious late night project! every night! and days!
3) he or she, hse looks like nicole. congrats
4) err, hse looks yellowish. are you sure dave you've "tanned" the pcb long enough? get back to maintenance factory and ask if hse needs more time under the ultraviolet light, serious!
5) i've done 3 projects, the oldest seems to near usable now, the 2 needs more debugging :P
6) maybe the next challenge... is to get 2 projects out of factory simultaneously! i'm in the process, hope for success! ;)
7) you are doomed! Dave! :D :D :D

We've done similar projects here. Revisions 1.0 through 4.0 are have been completely developed and have been released for quite some time now. They were and are awesome, but thank god there will be no revision 5.0!!!

Congratulations to you both!

It's very common for new born's to be 'yellowish' for a while, kidneys not fully functional yet. Don't worry Dave it won't be long before he is engaged in one of Jeri's famous male orientated contests (think about it!)
