Time for the daily moan.

JLC emailed me at 3.58am. Then at 4am asking if I got their previous email.

They just never seem to understand timezones. But even so, to reply in under 2 minutes ?! :pullhair: :pullhair:

So after the hassle with JLC. I just wanted them to remove the crosses on the silkscreen. They said they could do it and that was all discussed and sorted. An email saying can they put them into production because the engineer is too busy. So that was a waste of time.

PCBWAY..

Like yeah, that's all I knew they needed. There was some missing sockets and chips to buy which I paid for ages ago. So WTF now are they on about. :roll:

Honestly once all these current projects are completed I am done trying to get things fully assembled. It really is just not worth the time or hassle anymore. People will just have to learn to solder and do things themselves in future.

EDIT:

Turned off comments on my YouTube channel videos. Just sick and tired of all the stupid smart-arse dumb-ass comments all the time. Half the time they don't even read the info on the video before even starting to comment about stuff. I really cannot be bothered to even explain simple stuff to such people. It just takes up way too much time. As said before though, I am going to transfer my relevant YouTube videos and just host them on my server myself. So then I can just ditch youtube altogether then.
