Better days coming hopefully.

Started working with some Arduino circuits. Digital, analog and pwm. Built the tv out interface, but it does not work with ethernet ugh. Had a real nice project planned. in any case I was able to do web page scraping. Installed the ide for Arduino on the laptop.

Changed the root password on the Beagleboard.

Already had motion working on the RPi. The RPI basically only uses digital. Might experiment with r2r before getting some adc and dac chips.

Playing...

Autoharp

Just like a regular autoharp, all you have to do is press a key for the chord sounding.

$ autoharp.sh

oops more time on the arduino.

Posted 06-27-2013 at 06:42 PM by peonuser

Oops forgot to talk about the rs232 last time. have a rs232 to ttl converter, but have not attached it yet. Pinouts were not documented well. May just get a regular shield and take the easy wy out.

Taught the Arduino how to do page scraping from a web page. Going to do a web page on a local server that the arduino can use to send to a monitor via TV.out. Great for a retail application.

Put minibasic on the arduino to play with.

Do not really use flash,...
