If your question is merely hypothetical, then say so. It will certainly work, but it adds additional components & complexity for no benefit.
This will be my last post here, and the admin can delete it so as to protect the sensitive, but I will have my say before this eventuality. I have been working with electronics since before most of you were born, so the high horse crap is both disgusting and unjustified. My self admitted illiteracy relates to microprocessors, and I dare say bloody few of you have ever built a tube type anything. We are all illiterate about something. Worse than that is the fact that if allowed to go unchallenged such worthless posts speaks volumes to the attitude of the company sponsoring this forum. Is this really the way SparkFun wants to be represented? Were I in a position to do so harsh sanctions would have eliminated the sort of absolute tripe directed towards me long ago. So, let it be known that in permitting such vile, and unjustified, postings SparkFun tacitly approves of such. There are no other options. Own it.
Perhaps the first few words of my post would have been clear enough if one bothered to actually read them. What part of, “Is it possible” doesn’t very strongly imply a hypothetical? Seriously? What alternative can possibly be derived from such a preface? Apparently I use a version of the English language where those words hold a differnt meaning than what ever you were taught. Now, figure out some new and improved manner to expose your own lack of ability to read and comprehend while transferring your own shortcomings onto others. It was a simple question, and I am ever so sorry my plain words were so obscure to you.
Whether an advantage is present in my hypothetical, or not, is not your call. I note you offered no alternative, but rather made a sweeping unsupported assertion. You could very well be correct that there are simpler methods, but you didn’t suggest them. All you did was voice a negative opinion. A naysayer, if you will. Alternatively you could have omnipotent knowledge of my most inner thoughts and see through my evil plans. Did your comments help in any way? No.
The knee jerk reaction posted by the two of you is supposedly justified because some folks here seem to think it is their duty to belittle others. Some example of a willingness to share knowledge, or answer an simple question. Yep, y’all are shining examples of virtue, and reflect the values of SparkFun so well. That’s sarcasm, just in case I need explain every detail, which is obviously the case.
I find it hilarious that in spite of me clearly listing each component in question, and providing a detailed rundown of the issue, you asked your obtuse question. Even more side splitting is your weak attempt to further belittle, on a personal level, and you are supposed to be “support volunteer”? Pure comedy gold, in a morbid and infantile form more befitting a child. I suppose the way to rid myself of the illiteracy, to which I openly admitted, is to subject myself to the abuse of someone supposedly here to help. Just how much help is your very thinly veiled ad hom? None at all. Because of your attitude, and snide remarks, SparkFun just lost a contributing member, and customer. If anyone asks I will tell them where to get any of the products offered by SparkFun besides here, and probably pay far less to boot. Be ever so proud in your accomplishment.
Have fun with your little ego palace. I am done here. Continue to pretend you are superior, when anyone with two functional brain cells can clearly see a total opposition to this completely imagined glory. If y’all were capable you would feel shame for what has been posted here in response to what was a simple question, but the self delusion is probably irreversibly permanent. Good day.
