power over ethernet – why do so many vendors do it so halfassed?

good thing: I think this weekend i figured out how to make a circuit that supports both cisco legacy and 802.3af/at power over ethernet as a consumer, and outputs to something like a linksys router, or a ubiquiti bullet, both of which i'd rather be powering off my POE switches rather than using wallwarts or power injectors.

meh thing: it's all surface mount, which means getting pricey boards with etch resist and hoping i lay out the pcb right the first time

bad thing: not having any time to try it all out

It definitely seems easy compared to all the half assed solutions i see out there, the ubiquiti methods included.

Apparently I did something that upset the facebook gods.

They claim it was either:
* photos that attack a person or group (don't know of any)
* nudity (not really)
* drug use (nope)
* violence (they left my photo of me brandishing firearms untouched…)

Of course they won't tell me what they were, so how am I supposed to know what to avoid?

The only thing I can think of is that there were some photos of Becky breastfeeding the boy in the NICU.

Apparently kids eating is indecent now? What? Not like I was showing full on boobs or anything, I've seen more revealed people walking down the street.
