Live Shows are cool. Rationally looking, they don't represent so much of an informational content, however they create this nice feeling of kinda online meeting atmosphere. Plus they are still informative. So yes, I think you should do them, Dave. How oftenly - that depends on how oftenly you'd feel a live show would be good to do. :) Thanks for the good job for these years, keep on the good work.

And new year greetings to you (Dave) and all forum users. :)

Happy new year Dave, happy new year everybody!!

Dave, I would like to say a big THANK YOU! Not only because of the content you produce but basically because you have made possible the creation of a big community that, I feel, was missing.

And to all of you, I also would like to say a big big THANK YOU for the things I learned and the things I read and hope for all of you to be well and continue to offer your knowledge and experience.

Catch you next year  ;)

Happy new year, Dave! Good luck with getting the lab cleaned and organized. Keep in mind that after you clean it up there will be lots of things you will not be able to find anything any more. Also, it won't look like a working lab if it is too tidy.   :-DD

Nope, first is the big eBay sale, to clear out the space. All packed and posted out in recycled boxes from incoming parcels.

Thanks for the blog, Dave.  I am a recent joiner but I love the site and enjoy reading all the posts.  Here's wishing everyone a happy, healthy, prosperous New Year.  Let our wastelines shrink and our knowledge grow.  Let the EEVBlog continue to grow beyond Dave's wildest expectations and may the advertiser's money never run out.

Happy New Year to Dave and all on Blog/Forum. Even though I feel Im in the past still 2013 here in US  :-DD
I am very hooked on the videos have almost watched them all each and every evening after work.
Waiting for this 2014 to bring more new and exciting projects on EEV and personally.  :-+

How about a kick starter  to visit Dave's Lab? :clap: :clap: :clap:

My suggestion for 2014 is to do more shows where you have a guest in the lab or visit their facilities - such as Doug Ford with the LED lighting panels or Charles Holtom at Trio SmartCal at the calibration lab. It's great to learn along with you what the guest has to say.

No, no Dave; thank you. The blog and forum community are excellent resources.

Now that I'm old and have some loot it's great to start mucking about with, and understanding more about, the things I used to fool around with in my childhood and teens. Having a ball!
I'd rather a Google clue, link, or some theory than "do this" (generally)

Happy New Year~

Many of the videos has been very helpful and informative~

still waiting for the uSupply USB power supply...

dream for 2014:
higher bandwidth and cheaper price internet connection!

It used to be talking things like 2012 or so.....now those things are just all gone all of a sudden:-DD

Keep it up :)

Photo coverage with hi-res photos of tear-downs would be priceless.
As usually there is nothing on web regarding most of not so old test equipment, and you get chances to teardown
some expensive devices as well. Couple hi-res photos of internals would be price of gold for those few
who manage to buy broken abused gear off ebay and trying fix it up, just like i did with Keithley DMMs :)

I think this can bring you some of test equipment geeks just by reason of having photo resource of gear  >:D

Happy New Year Dave!

Hope you get your workflow in the lab improved. Sort of looks like my desk. To much stuff messing up the work area...
Please try to finish the uSupply, I have been looking forward to this one, and I want one. I think this one will do well as a crowd funded project as well. I still need a lab power supply. Currently I'm using an old PC supply. Hope to get something better from dumpster diving at the university here, they throw away a lot of useful stuff.

Hope you get some nice time off during your summer now. The winter there in Norway is not that great yet, it's more like a bad summer at the moment. No snow. Hopefully this will change in the weeks to come so that I can go kiting on the frozen lakes  :)

Best Regards

I agree.. Best way to get people to visit Blog site more is to offer content that support the videos. Written stuff, plans, schematics, good quality drawings and photos. I have to say that for Example Mathias Wendel makes it really well. He has lots of interesting videos, plenty of written free content and he even sells the detailed Cad drawings and homemade software for those who feel the need (and or want to support him).

Ok,, some could say that his site don't have fancy web2.0 looks, but IMHO the content is much more important than the latest tricks on site making.

Best wishes for 2014 everyone!

I think some additional background content on the website could be useful. I'm pretty sure it will attract the necessary attention the blog site requires if it will be linked in through YouTube and the forum.

Maybe not even content that's directly linked to a particular video, as that's pretty good well linked or added on the forum. Maybe some preview stuff like you post to twitter on the micro-[insert] projects, etc, some minor rants about how crappy vendor sites are and EDA tools can bug out all the time.

I think teardown photos are already posted to Flickr, right? That would just a matter of linking in and/or pointing people to the links.

Live shows are entertaining to watch/hear for the waffling. Problem for me is with the last set of live shows they were too long to get through. I think the last live show was like 5 hours?  :phew: I usually try to watch any video in 1 go, and with 1.5 to 2+  hours that's impossible.

Maybe a live show with a questions section and a more or less planned section (that may otherwise not be shot or put on altzone or something) would be fun to combine. I know it's already been tried and it was a logistic nightmare getting a good video shot, and video quality on most distributing platforms is pretty laggy/crap.

Happy new year Dave!

I would suggest you to add something new to your blog.
I think that a funny side of the Mailbag would be interesting. Do you remember when some dude sent you a underwear?
In this blog you would show to us all stuff you received which isn't related to electronics.
 
Best wishes!

HNY to one and all...

I think there's possibly some room for more interactive live shows (not like the uStream ones, they lag a bit) but perhaps more like LadyAda/Adafruit??

Hello Dave,

best wishes for you in 2014, also from Germany!

"EEVblog", I translate that to Electronics Entertaining Video Blogs.

Your vivid and unpretentious way of presenting Tear Downs and any kind of electronic stuff is the reason for the success of your site.

Keep on going that way, and I am curious to encounter the realization of your new ideas.

Regards - Frank

Hi Dave and Happy New Year!

This year I have just discovered your work and thankyou for re-igniting my interest in electronics!

Really enjoyed the EEVBLOG and have managed to catch up on all your episodes...

In response to your latest (Blog 563) I think it would be best if you get some good products out and leave the information free! It's your off-the-cuff-here-how-it-works freedom of information that has made you so popular!
I worry that of you change to pay-per-tutorial this might ruin what you have already... I do  understand that you also need to earn a living... :-\

The uCurrent is a brilliant idea, I for one will want to buy one, although you show how to design and make one in your previous blogs and I could build one, I'd rather buy one from you!

Good work fella, and all the best for 2014  :clap:
