Fluke Donates Multimeters To SparkFun As Goodwill Gesture

devilsandy its not all .. (250 comments)

Fluke did a good gesture and I applaud them. What happens to the 2000 multimeters that are held up ? if they get destroyed ... its not a win in my book.

30 Years of the BBC Micro

devilsandy My introduction to computers was through BBC Micro (208 comments)

I was 9 years old ( 1989) when my school (INDIA) introduced computers . I learned the LOGO and BASIC in couple of years. I spent numerous hours after school and on weekends so that I could have the computer to myself as opposed to being shared between three students during regular class hours. I asked my dad to buy one and I kinda remember him saying that costs something like a few months of his salary.

Best Color Scheme For Coding, Easiest On the Eyes?

devilsandy Problem with Monitor ? (763 comments)

At my new job, the computer had a KDS 17" Flat CRT monitor. Within couple of days I noticed my eyes would hurt by the end of the day and sometime water too. After observing I saw the image displayed on the monitor would shake by small amounts continuously, once I replaced it with a NEC LCD the problem was gone. I noticed similar thing with my mini-itx connected to my LCD HDTV ( using VGA port). Try a different monitor AND/OR a different CPU.
