Re: 8 way relay board

That's fine sketch, indeed!
I'm suddenly feeling the urge to drive things with relays.... ;)

Re: Sorry for the silence

Glad things are going better, Jon - long may that continue. The plumbing in the sinus is poorly designed, imo! ;) Medical science has come a long way nowadays, they can fix things pretty often. Agree that drinking plenty of water is good - keeping warm is good (eg improvised face sauna) and avoiding...

Re: Using LeoStick temperature sensor

Thank you!
No more error message. :D

The offset needed with our Leostick seems to be around 637
It's a bit jittery, but what would one expect! Great little sketch. Ben

Re: Sine tone sequencer on pin 11 piezo - now working :)

Hi Richard, How did your event go? We had a good view of the partial eclipse via a home-brewed pinhole camera obscura, plus the live feed on screen... It was only around 1 radius of overlap here, still impressive. As posted elsewhere, I fixed my finger problem with the IDE/Leostick. The setup that I...

Re: Using LeoStick temperature sensor

Thanks! Works well on our Leostick, although it does report:

Code: Select all

Binary sketch size: 4452 bytes (of a 28672 byte maximum)
ioctl("TIOCMSET"): Value too large for defined data type
Wish I knew enough to be able to parse that.... :?

Re: LeoStick install and first time use - Linux, Ubuntu

[SOLVED] ! Yes, it was basic, it was dumb too. An hour or two googling the Arduino environment and delving into the Platforms page gave rise to the surmise that extracting the folder from inside LeoStick_board_profile_v1_1.zip into ~/sketchbook/hardware is not precisely right. What is really needed ...

Re: LeoStick install and first time use - Linux, Ubuntu

Greetings, and many thanks to all at Freetronics for the Leostick given out at Ballarat. I bought an Eleven, your excellent Practical Arduino and all the bits, learned a lot, and tried out the Leostick on a knowledgeable friends laptop whilst we were there. Blink! Whilst on the other side of the pla...

Re: Arduino versus Eleven?

We have an Eleven that runs reliably and usually works well with the IDE on our various Linux platforms, an Arduino UNO that does the same, and a Leostick that is somewhat problematical after a successful start in life at Ballarat earlier this year. Suspect that the Leonardo approach is currently a ...

Re: Sine tone sequencer on pin 11 piezo - now working :)

We're back in Vic! Hope your event goes well - the partial solar eclipse is on tomorrow around 0700 ~ 0900 iirc. Should start it off pretty dramatically! Darned if I can get the Leostick to behave, yet. It was most generously given away at Linux.conf.au in Ballarat, and we managed to make it 'blink'...
