Default why not focus on that instead?

A camel appeared in so many posts that it deserves a thread of its own. Also, I didn't want the brainstorming taking place in Aleph X thread to be taken off the track. I hope you don't mind.

Fred, the camel is the best means of transportation in the desert so while it may not look refined it gets the job done. Even more so in MrFeedback version.
Individual efforts often time do not result in the best looks either, I won't be nasty by bringing any examples of that.

Default Constructing planet Earth

Since the earth was created in seven days I guess we can be fairly sure that it was a solo effort

My point was that I was beginning to fear another 60 pages of disscussion before deciding on a PCB design. Analysis is paralysis..... In other words get humping. The last design by commitee project disappeared without a PCB trace.

I'd give her a hump. But only if she asked nice.

Peter,
There used to have a Canadian TV show (must be more than 15 years ago) where on the last segment of the show, it showed a short hilarious bit about what bugs them .... well ... this is what bugs me ... did you notice that after you "created" this thread, it showed there are over 100,000 views ... we know that's not true but is there anyway you can fix it?

I'm still new to this business, but I will ask my more experienced assossiates.

I was suggesting starting a new thread devoted to Aleph X PCB only. Maybe it wasn't such a bad idea? Do you want me to do it now and move the related content?
