Do they have a RoHS compliant version? I'd hate to have my Pb-free smoke contaminated with lead or peanut butter.

Because the features of concentrated smoke are hidden and thus largely unknown to the user, AEROstich will be launching the "Insmell Inside" campaign to promote the benefits of reconcentrated smoke. Business has also myseriously spiked in Oregon and Washington recently.

It's amazing how many young engineers remain unaware of the dangers of peanut butter when you drop a big "glob" onto your keyboard, and -- with a tear rolling down one's cheek -- watch it slither its way between the keys -- shortly before the keyboard inexplicably ceases to function (not that this has ever happened to me, you understand :-)

For many years, engineers have made jokes about letting the smoke out of an IC, and how you'll never get it all back in there. I'm glad to see an enterprising company has finally addressed this problem, and at only $1,111.12, it sounds like a bargain! I love the last sentence of their product description: "A must-have item for any shop, especially if you’re an idiot."

Here's what I'm wondering- Would it be possible to perhaps take some smoke from a Cray supercomputer and inject it back into an 8-bit microcontroller? In addition to adding incredible speed, you might even be able to add some features!

It's ideas like this that separate the men from the boys. Of course the seals on the old Cray chips weren't all that good -- it may be that the smoke has leaked out by now...

"out of stock" as is all the good stuff, like the "gear expander wash" (I could really use that, motorcycle gear never did fit me properly).

To do this properly, you have to use mirrors. To our non-geek friends, electronics is all smoke and mirrors anyway.

The old timers at my first company had one of the technicians trained to hold the eprom upside down after programming to be sure the bits did not leak out. That joke is so old that it no longer has to shave.
