Re: Keyboard.FUN !

Unfortunately the HID.cpp's write function is really spartan. It isn't designed to hold a key down (it always lifts the key after pressing) and only makes use of one meta-key, the left shift. It is very simply designed. Yeah, I think I just borrowed bits of code and tried to call the next layer dow...

Re: Keyboard.FUN !

How do the meta keys work? I'd love to "ctrl+alt+del, delay(200), enter" to lock my workstation. Or winkey+L ? I looked in to this briefly (and unsuccessfully) when I first got mine. Find the "HID.cpp" file in your arduino-1.0 directory, that seems to contain the code that the LeoStick uses when yo...

Re: Using a programmer...

I've cut up some old prototyping board to make a breadboard-compatible 328 "programmer helper" - ie., plug the ISP cable on the top, and the helper plugs into the breadboard over the chip (with all the wires going to the right place). FWIW, I've now got a PCB made for the ISP->Breadboard adapter fo...

0.2V = 0.02A x 50... volts? I think it's supposed to be 0.02A x 10 Ohm?

Re: Using a programmer...

Forgot to mention in the other post.... one possibility for the v3 is doing what the LaunchPad board does for its on-board LEDs - simply having jumpers in-line, so you can easily remove them if you want access to the pins without the LEDs being in the way.

Re: Using a programmer...

For now I'll stick with a breadboard - I'd just thought the Pebble would be a handy way to make sure I didn't mess up the wiring. (My first breadboard attempt had +5V and GND backwards. OOPS!). I've cut up some old prototyping board to make a breadboard-compatible 328 "programmer helper" - ie., plug...

Using a programmer...

Hi, I have a USBtiny ISP, that can talk happily to an ATmega328 on a breadboard, and to the Pebble v2's onboard 8u2 via the ISP header. However, it can't seem to talk to the ATmega328 on the Pebble v2 via it's ISP header. Is this an expected side-effect of loading up the matching digital pins with L...

Re: Influx of spambots

I helped run a forum at a previous job; one of the most effective tools at the time was forcing moderation of the first two posts of any given user. Kinda sucks for genuine users that are new to the forum, but... (I'm sure you could work out some way to do it only in certain circumstances, eg. for n...
