If it were "exciting information" I doubt there would be a level of
annoyance... But "I tried connecting this way -- it's not working" "I
changed to these connections -- still not working", etc. gets stale real
fast (especially when you never trim quoted material, so the same stuff
gets posted over and over).
"Exciting information" would have been a post of
I've converted <xyz> 3D printer to use the BBB and Replicape.
This is what I had to do to get it connected...
<write up of what wires had to go where, custom configuration files
This is a comparison of how the printer behaved before conversion and
after conversion when creating a simple object...
<write up of timings, motor positioning accuracy, whatever is
Descriptions of mis-assembled motors is really only significant if you
can show that a majority of these motors were released with the same flaw,
with a description of how to correct that motor.
One post asking for help on confusing wiring is reasonable.
Just look at your subject line on the thread... "replicape" and "BBB"
are so far to the right that many classic news clients (I read the group
via gmane's NNTP server -- and used to post via it until Google started
rejecting the posts, now I have to remember to "reply by email" and set the
correct Google group name as the "TO" field). For example, in the list of
messages, what shows up as subjects for me is just
"Re: On All Channels and Flipping Out/Finding O"
which doesn't really provide any thing to encourage one to read the thread.
FYI: it looks like the Replicape is becoming a defunct product...
includes the processor on-board...
<G> Seeed Studio still has it in stock though.
