2018-06-20 Don’t Ask To Share Software!

From FB group Arduino Projects Marcos Tulio Junior I think it is unethical for others to expect the coder to reveal his IP (intellectual property). There is nothing wrong with asking the coder for a link to open source software. But you are out of line when you expect others to do for you what

There is also a smaller capacitor next to the other, it might be a 3 uF, or a 16 uF, 10V.
