    Default Confession: I almost invalidated my Darwin warranty. But I did not.

    Encouraged by Nate's true confessions, I felt it time to come forward, and bare my soul. To you, Darwination.

    My second week with it, the arm was getting a little loose. I had spent months researching, and chose Darwin as a worthy successor to my Ego-ish starter device. I have been smelling solder for 40 years, and spend decades with tools. And stuff.

    I gathered my oscilloscope, some tools, my soldering station, and my lucky rabbit's foot all around me. I recited the resistor color band code (in reverse, because I'm good like that). I put on soothing Brian Eno muzak, lit some incense, and thought about what it must look like. Inside my Darwin. Was there perhaps cool stuff etched on a board? I love Chip Art!

    I had often wondered what made Darwin tick. I had even previously set up Wireshark packet sniffer on a Linux box, to sniff packets on the USB wire. I was entranced at the possibility of communication with Darwin, or just see if it had any little beacons going on. Any inside jokes in the stream. "HELLO, Hello, hello, is there anybody in there." Maybe I could try sending it a Hello World.

    I steeled myself, picked up my Tiny Torque Wrench. Yes, one of the screws was a little bit looser than the others. I re-torqued them all to XXXXXXX inch-pounds, and it worked! (See Note***)
    Darwin could wave at me now, and not limply drop his arm any more.

    Thank you Nate, for giving me the courage to share my story. I came so close, but I did not invalidate my warranty.

    (Note***) This information censored, so as to not tempt Darwin owners to invalidate their warranty.

    I feel so much better after vaping a while, and I didn't think I felt bad before.

    lol love the story nano! ive also wanted to open it up just to take a look, but i dont know crap about chips and stuff like that, i could test out an air conditioner and tell you the circuit board is bad (usually the burn up and you can see it) or tel you how a 50uf capacitor is running, but little things like this are beyond my relm!

    ime5000: my favorite tools are vicegrips and a hammer. But I have other tools, if need be. You know what they say, if the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem starts to look like a nail!

    We have a saying at work: "If you can't fix it with a hammer, it's electrical"
    One of my co-workers really loves his big-..... hammer
