Slashdot
« on: April 03, 2010, 11:16:01 pm »
In a shameless attempt to get more hits and viewers I've submitted the Rigol Hack to Slashdot:
http://slashdot.org/submission/1208312/Serial-port-command-hack-for-Rigol-Oscilloscope

Is anyone in a position to help approve stuff on Slashdot by any chance?

I've tried a few times times before and all have been rejected  :(

Thanks.
Dave.

I hope your web server will actually be able to withstand it...

Slashdot is crowd-sourced.  There's a firehose channel where you can rate things if you are a member.  I have excellent karma at Slashdot but I don't think I (nor anyone here) am in a position to help you with that because of the nature of the beast.  Only an editor could do that for you, I think.

Try other sites, like reddit, delicious and digg for better luck.  Stumbleupon draws lots of hits for niche users, I'll tag it in electronics engineering for you.

edit:  I take that back.. I still can't view the page because of the error it throws, so I can't grab a link for it.

Grr, that message is getting annoying, but worked for my half an hour ago!
You can still right click and copy/paste the link:
http://www.eevblog.com/2010/03/31/eevblog-70-turn-your-rigol-ds1052e-oscilloscope-into-a-100mhz-ds1102e/

A get a fair few hits from Stumbleupon, so I'm on there somewhere.

Thanks
Dave.
