Basic Electronics » PCB arrived

My drive by wire project has enough components that I had a bit of a rat's nest of wires to connect them all. After breaking down and finally learning how to use Eagle, I had a couple boards made at Batch PCB that cleaned up my setup considerably. Also put up a design just for the basic Nerdkit components if anyone is interested in making a more permanent version of one of their NK projects. A couple other NK members have similar boards there too. Before and after pics:

Stan,

That's odd, they show up fine for me (except they're too big and I'm not sure how to resize).

Hi Eric,

It seems like the rest of the world doesn't have permission to see those files on your google docs, so I think the links only work for you. I would really like to see those pics though.

Still no pics visible, just a box with a little x in the upper left corner.

Why not use imgur.com as explained in the how to linked below?

Hmm ... I wonder why I don't see them. I am using IE8. What browser are you using?

On my netbook, Firefox 4.01 on Win Vista = no photo's, IE9 on the same computer = photo's there.

Wierd...

Where did you host them Eric?

Rick,

I hosted the pictures on Google Docs. I guess next time I'll use imgur.com so everyone can see.

I use photobucket for mine. So far, I have not had a single problem. Easy to use and set up as well as link to.

Figured it out, I can see them now. By default IE8 restricts a cookie that google must write before displaying the image. Set IE security to allow all cookies, view the image, then if you wish you can set security back to default. Once the cookie is written it stays there and Google Doc images work from that point forward.

Strange I had to sign into Google Docs and then I got a download for the two pictures and now one of the pictures is showing up inline which it was not doing before signing in. I am using Chrome 11.0.6
