Forget to fill out the article?
This is an attachemnt to an article.
Attachmetns do not have text. ;)
Anyway, good idea!
Attachments may not have text, but they should have links back to the article they are attached to. That way, if a user happens to come to the attachment page via a link from an unrelated page, or via a search page link, the user can go to the original article and read all about it.
Simple, elegant, functional – nice job!
So simple and elegant it doesn’t need an article.
I have found colored ones on old motherboards If I remember right. Old hard dives are a good source for jumpers as well as old legacy PCI/VESA etc. The had bunch of jumpers for settings.
Nice! You can get 50 of these jumpers for about a buck and a half. I should have ordered these instead of female jumper wires.
Jumper blocks can also be used to expediently join two (or more) short jumpers into a longer one.
You can make the male equivalent of jumper blocks by snapping two pins off a snappable male header and just soldering the pins together.
Various other adapters are possible, perhaps with a bit of perfboard. I’ve found a little adapter that splits a single pin connection into two handy for testing on a number of occasions.
I just got some white male headers. Liquid Rit dye works on some plastics, will soon test to see if it works on these too. If so, I’ll be able to make colors on demand, which would be darn handy.
Hi, really a good job!!simply awesome!
I don’t understand why this this has been posted here?
I’m not normally one to rip on peoples efforts, and that’s certainly not my intention here, but using a female jumper to link two male header pins (on a cable or not!) does not warrant a) News coverage, and b) Most certainly not HACK-a-day coverage! This is after all, the intended function of the jumper?
Jumpers are normally only used to connect two pins as a signal of a desired setting, not with cables to quasi change gender.
And since it’s handy to use for half the projects you might tinker with it’s a good thing to be aware of.
