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,...

This in That. Using the arduino with the rs232 daughterboard

Using the Arduino for proects. simplest lately was to project a simple web page so that I could take down the internal web server without the users not knowing what was going on. Sort of an under construction page is delivered. Next project is to interface an old composite monitor and use it for displaying messages that can be updated via ethernet remotely.

Installed adosbox on the Nexus 7. Running a lot of my old qbasic programs such as a spreadsheet on it. Not gui, but sure is practical...

Hard part of learning to cook is not the cooking itself, but the cleanup and the storage management especially in the fridge and freezer.

Found an Arch linux floppy net boot install disk. Not played with Arch linux. Good to try new things.

This weekend was very productive. Still have not cleaned up the mancave. It is getting even more crowded so to speak.

Learned to use an ipcamera with motion. Had to go to the Zoneminder wiki to find the answer about what stream to use.The manual sure did not have that information.

Installed Netbsd from five floppys and the internet on an old pentium one. Just did a command line setup. Very intersting. Played tetris for a while. Found that old motherboard does not like...
