I'm starting to think that I'm losing my mind. I seem to remember a GG board that allowed the QS board to be plugged in underneath. I can't seem to find it anymore. Either at the parallax site and the GG site. Has the board been pulled?

The link to it I had saved on my PC still works
http://www.gadgetgangster.com/find-a-project/56?projectnum=136

However when just going to GG web and trying to find it I also did not
see it and entering it's name in the search turned up a blank page.
I did not put in great effort so maybe I missed it.

The one I purchased works great.

Maybe it got pulled because of production issues or other types of problems. I hope it becomes available again. I'm not entirely sure why though! :-) It's not really any cheaper then the usb GG board but I've got a couple of the quickstart boards and would like the GG adapters to go with them.

The bin for Quickstart Modules is empty this morning, but I understand they are on the way with a small improvement.

They do certainly make the Quickstart boards easier to prototype with.

Gadget Gangster's policy seems to be if it's out of stock you won't find a link.
It seems rather annoying considering that might be the first place people look for support.
Maybe Gadget Gangster should reconsider this "policy". It is their business though.

There is a way to set the item to accept BO orders.

I'll contact Nick and see if we can get this done. It should also leave the link intact.

At the very least it should leave a link to the product and mark it as out of stock.

Not only that.. a discontinued product documentation is a great value..
For instance the sensirion, or Ray's LCD adapter..

When I see NO web page for a product that used to be shown, I automatically think the product has been discontinued.
When I see NO web page for a previous shown product, I automatically think this place doesn't support their products.

I believe if a part is still available, but out of stock, that is what its webpage should say.
I believe online information/documentation should be available for discontinued products.

In the past, I have been on Gadget Gangster's web site, and I couldn't find the web page for a product I saw before, so I gave up trying to purchase the product.

Just visited the link in post #2 and see a notation, "Currently Out Of Stock. Want an email when we get more?" and has a box to enter your email address. However, I tried to find the board from the Gadget Gangster home page and could not. I tried searching the site using the terms "QuickStart" and "quick" and didn't return the board, either. So save that link!
