This sounds great, mrdon - looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Please keep the "rules" in mind - we need a clear photo of the gadget, as well as a clear photo of you with the gadget. We also need a hi-resolution video, and some of the parts used in the gadget must be available through Allied Electronics, the sponsor of our Gadget Freak section. Please include the Allied part number and a link to the part on the Allied site.

Finally, we like to see projects that are unique to Design News. Of course, they can be published elsewhere after they appear on our site or in our magazine.

Thanks!

Hi, Chris.  Sorry for your frustration with links.  I get frustrated by broken links, too. My colleagues and I try to include complete links, so even if a page has moved, people can still go to the source and search for the information they seek.  Unfortunately, companies change information on their sites, companies go out of business or no longer stock parts, etc.  A while ago when Design News changed to a new "platform" for content, quite a bit of information about some Gadget Freak projects got lost during file transfers.

If you want something specific, let me know and I'll try to find a link that works.

Jon, KZ1G

Bad links Kills all enthusiasm

"You are not authorized to view this page. The Web server you are attempting to reach has a list of IP addresses that are not allowed to access the Web site, and the IP address of your browsing computer is on this list."

Links that get you this message just stops one in their tracks. Why look at other entries ?

Don't post links off your web site that you don't have control over. If Design News is not going to maintain the date on your site, just forget about posting the article.

Dead links make me just PASS on other articles that I might have been interested in, but don't want to investigate now because I am sure there will be other links that are now dead or not accessible.

I have tries from three different IP addresses, same massage. Case 167 has these bad links.

Disappointed,

Chris

"if we publish information about your device, you get a cool $500 to buy stuff for your home lab, put in savings, or use however you want"

Jon, cool and these offerings may flood your inbox with 'n number of design entries. Even I had start thinking in similar direction for one or two.

That's a shame. Nothing I work on is open-source. 

When I do though, this is the first place I'll post about it.

Yes, you must, Cabe.  The Gadget Freaks section gives people an opportunity to show off something they created so others can duplicate it, make modifications on their own, or find inspiration in it that leads to something new.  So in effect, it's an open-source project and we do need schematic diagrams, code listings, and other backup materials.
