    Whenever we feel like it! ;) Honestly, it's not a planned thing ... it
    just happens when it does.

    There is a troublesome falsehood circulating that we [Parallax] are
    sitting on our tails doing nothing and getting rich collecting profits
    (we've actually seen this statement made on the Internet). This is just
    not the case. We run a good business, but nobody is sitting around
    doing nothing (man, I wish I could share some of the stuff going on
    here, but to protect the company I can't...). And support costs money.
    Developing new products and application notes for those that exist costs
    money.

    We do try to put things on sale when we can because we know things can
    be tough and money can be tight. We feel it too; believe me. And
    whether you buy from us at regular or sale prices, we do appreciate you
    working with our products.

    I can see the attitude and the mistakes people make.

    I did a small project with one ADC chip. The $10.00 chip, plus
    board, plus connectors, plus shipping and the project was close to
    $30.00 !

    Someone who thinks a $1.00 profit is good may not realize that the
    $1.00 needs to pay for about 10 hours of time.

    Yes we wish the costs were lower, but the reality is that the one
    chip cost is not the whole ball of wax.

    But, if anybody wants to put together a couple boards for me, I'll
    supply the parts and give them $1.00.

    Hello from Gregg C Levine
    And I agree with you, Jon, regarding those thoughts. Every time I
    actually called the 800# on the main website, to either order
    something, or ask a technical question, I found the responses, to be
    exactly what I wanted to have answers for.

    Not what I wanted to hear, but what I wanted to have answered.

    In fact during the ordering process for this second Stamp 1, I did
    mention your name, if only in passing. The person at the other end,
    sounded pleasantly surprised by the reference. The implication was
    that, we both knew how good you were at your job. She was just
    reassured that I knew that fact. In fact each time I called in
    regarding the ordering process, once to order, once to track the
    process, the same person answered, and she was very helpful. And since
    I understand those sentiments, and support them wholeheartedly, I
    won't ask you to divulge a confidence, regarding any sort of new
    product, or application. Besides, in my work, I would not want to
    either.

    And regarding the boob who made those ridiculous statements, we should
    find him, or it, and send him to any of three planets known for their
    appropriateness for such individuals. In fact I think we should be
    sending spammers there. Which thankfully I am happy that there's
    nothing like that on this group.

    Now before our friendly list manager, gets peeved, we should return to
    the normal practice of the discussions of stamp activities. If either
    of you want to continue this discussion off list, and not on a company
    email account, then please feel free to do so.

    None ruffled ... just wanted to share that we're human too. The economy
    (especially being a California-based company) affects us too. I promise
    that we're doing our best to control prices.

    Okay, let's get back to fun stuff. Who has a question about programming
    BASIC Stamps?

    You do run a good business and have great support and information for your
    customers. And with great products and a good company, you are more than
    entitled to sit on your tails and collect money, but I mean that in a good way.
    Many thanks from a happy customer.
