What is with everybody not sharing their work? We are all here for the same reasons and without sharing we can't make the cause of putting it to the man, work. There is this idea invented by someone wiser than me called open source, if you make it open source, everyone is able to share our hard work and it will help us all move forward together.
Who care if some spineless dill hole wants to sell some rip off piece of monkey fluff. For more than he ever put into it.
If we share the knowledge we bring the price down and no one want to buy their silly little junk. We are only helping these cheese balls get rich off our hard work but keep the secrets to our selves. So Im begging you not to let limp d$#k win and put your wisdom out here our we all lose in the end.
I don't know where exactly is the problem now... I had the feeling I'm sharing enough from my idea over my time/ money and so on. I appreciate that you posted your .ino sketch on hackaday.io I am sure everyone loves what you did (I am serious).
Please accept my decission that i don't want to share my code as an .ino sketch... all the rest I'm sharing with everyone... I could have also have done it for myself and then noone would have anything... Or you all could buy these modules for an stupid mount of money... . We both know that we don't "have" to do what we're doing here, developing for other people.
The only reason why I am doing this is the fact that already I had luck with some projects when another one shared his knwoledge in the WWW as good as he could so I was able to rebuild it...
Ask other open source projects for there whole source code. 99% of them are not sharing the whole source code with the rest of the world. And if users share some snippets of the source code the topics will be directly deleted by the thread owner. I always say: Please share your findings through my script with the rest of the world, this is what will help people. Copy & Paste is too easy and no one is learning anything.
Another example: I've read ??your?? post at Hackaday.io at first: Respect for this awesome and Detailed Tutorial.
But have you said by ONE word who found out the trick? No, you didn't. This is exactly why I don't share the code itseld. If I would have shared it as code, I am very sure I would find my code now there attached as an .ino file. And because I haven't shared my code I find YOUR code attached to YOUR tutorial.
Your sketch is good and working, even when I have made it completely different, both ways bring it's way to success and I#ve learned something: Think easier and not so complicated.
So again to everyone: Please accept my/our/ everyones decission how they handle their code. It's their built, it's their product.
Cheers and an drunken Friday,
I do accept and understand your decision, you did a great work here, like really great.
What i do think about here, is why nobody did take a look at the nRF52840 and code this in a different way, if it isn't locked. By doing it this way, you can use the BLE from the mobile phone and with a little app power on/off, and even make a personal password etc, and if you only want a switch for this, then i am sure there are a free pio to use for this.. then it will only be a new firmware to the bluetooth/GPS/GSM board.. please correct me if i am wrong.. and all can do this without purchase anything. Just a thought.... and this way you will punish the people who did steal your code and are selling it the best way, because then there are nothing to sell..
Have a nice day, keep up all your good work and keep smiling.
