Re: What is the definition of commercial use?

I guess you're using the "Download as ZIP" option - if you clone the repository with 'git', then 'git log' will show you the author's name and email address. mikro, I'm sure you hear this often, but you Sir, are the Internet's most valuable resource! I have the email address from git log as suggest...

What is the definition of commercial use?

Hi All, I want to build a SCSI to SD card adapter for my NeXT Station. It's designed by someone else and free on GitHub. I face the usual problem; I only want one but it's more economical (and mostly not a choice) to get 10 of everything. The designer's readme.md clearly states that commercial use i...

Re: Costs of running a forum like Exxos is running here

Ideally the best way is to have a reliable Internet link and enough power to keep your host connected 24/7. Request a static IP from your ISP and make it dedicated to that machine, ideally *nix. Set up BIND, and request that your domain provider gives you authority over your own FQDN. They will try ...

Re: What is BURS?

Wonder if it's some sort of QA stage in the factory? Unless BURS is scribbled on it, it shall not pass. But why BURS specifically? Is it an acronym? Is it workshop talk? What does it mean? It's driving me nuts. The only people I can think to ask is Brad BeST and Steve Wiztronics as they've both bee...

What is BURS?

Hi. :)

Every single ST I've disassembled has the letters BURS scribbled in blue permanent marker across the top of the modulator shield. Does anyone know what this means? The curiosity is really getting to me. :)

Cheers,
Stuart

Re: Free PCBs

Wow, Falcon sounds super cool, but can you get all the parts? Surprisingly it seems you can (for now). There was a guy battling with a burned out Falcon board just last year (possible CT60 power connector error - I polarised mine for this exact reason!) He replaced almost every single IC on that bo...

Re: Free PCBs

AUD $21.20 for economy, $28.20 for tracked. :( Unless you can somehow convince them it's a letter. EDIT: You probably could convince them it's a letter! For $7, Max weight is 125g and up to 20mm thickness. If you can get it down to 50g it's only $3! :thumbup: They all got sent as letters. I did hav...
