Great work! You make some nice looking bar backs.




JJ (aka inmate johnjen) heads up the Marketing division of this out-of-control community project. I thought he might answer the 'when can we have it?' question. It seems more natural that way.

Seriously though, I was shooting for shipping everything by the end of December. The economy is picking up and I've been bidding engineering jobs, which is a priority of course. I'll be back at the bench Friday, and over the weekend.

Yeah you can call me Mr. Natural Marketing GENIUS.

As to when well, the stock Marketing answer has and will remain YES!

And since they (the rest of this "out-of-control community project") have taken away all of the sharp objects within reach not to mention any knowledge of what is REALLY going on in terms of production, the best short answer I can provide is 'soon'.

A longer answer is I can only guess. These are labor intensive devices and Poolside spends most of his free time making up batches of 30 of them at a time, so it will be at least a month.

Perhaps the marketing department can start answering all Poolsides PM's and queries on the forums so PS can stay in the saltmine?

Speaking of saltmines, I'm getting some dinner and a coffee, and after that I'll be swinging a pick until further notice.


(Though I do have one or two responses to some recent technical posts in here.)

I think you have a distorted perspective of just what Marketing is all about along with the power and influence it holds.

Marketing when elevated to the level we are witnessing here on this project, is NOT about reminding production about the beatings.

No no, not at all.
That would be wholy counterproductive in any and all ways.
And not up to the standards we aspire towards at all.


No, Marketing's job is to deeply seat the knowledge that production KNOWS what is expected and what the consequences are for making marketing get out of its comfy chair and HAVE to go down there and remind them of this.

Lets not assign any undue responsibilities to Marketing that it doesn't deserve… I mean it's already got a big enough job as is and inducing it to take on even more responsibility runs counter to its very purpose

I see JJ. On those rare occasions when Marketing is required to leave it's comfy chair how does it reinforce it's expectations to production? or or or

Say JJ, does Poolside know about the webcam you put down in the hole?

I can see that he has a neat 'n tidy workspace, but I don't see him there actually getting any work done...

And now the $64K question.

Who can identify what the test unit is, directly under the big spool of red wire?

Bonus points for the unit directly to its left…

That's a loud speaker from the series "Voyage to the bottom of the sea".

Yeah they very well may have used one of those as a prop in that show. And since it has a nifty visual enhancement display built right in it does make for a good prop.

But your response wasn't in the form of a question so try again…
