Acer nightmare part 2

Posted by on October 5, 2012

It’s here!

TheĀ main-boardĀ for the LCD finally arrived, it’s a newer revision… all identical, except for a minor detail: the LVDS connector is different. <insert_rage_face_here/>

Oh well, I’ve yet to find a suitable LVDS cable for this panel, I think this is it for the LCD… Time to upgrade!

And on that note….

I was going to post a lengthy rant about how companies are always screwing us over but I realize it’s pointless to do so, we’d just be wasting bandwidth. Let’s instead focus on good things. I strongly believe open hardware is going to become mainstream. So I encourage you to share your projects whether they’re software or hardware related: post them somewhere, discuss them, get involved.

Don’t be afraid of “others making money off of it” there’s always going to be a weasel out there, you just have to look at the bigger picture.

In essence, nobody wins if everyone keeps everything to themselves. Be less secretive and more open. Go make something useful, go help someone out; you’ll be helping yourself in the process.

Cheers.
