Re: SH Receiver -Getting Started

Hi Caxton, I've just kicked off doing the same with my own weather station - I'm reading data via the 433 shield but the output doesn't make sense. I believe the problem will be that different manufacturers are probably encoding their data in a different order and possibly even assigning a different...

Re: Watchdog Timer Module

Just a quick update to say the watchdog timer is working great (Once I got the timing for the outgoing keep-alive pulse happening frequently enough) It's successfully bought my ether-ten back on line a couple of times now after it has locked up due to high temperatures.

Watchdog Timer Module

Watchdog Timer Module - what a fantastic idea!

The etherten I have in the roof keeps locking up every couple of weeks and becomes unresponsive (Not sure if it is heat or what..) This looks like it might save me getting the stepladder out every month. I've ordered one already and can't wait to try it.

Re: Flashforge Creator

Just to add my 2 cents worth... I bought a flashforge creator in Jan this year. After seeing what Geoffro had to say about his bad experience with ebay sellers I decided to go straight to the distributor here in Melbourne and purchased mine from the 3D Printer Superstore. Very glad I did because I a...

Re: Battery shield

I would really love to see a battery 'shield' for the leostick! Something that would boost the voltage from a single AA battery up to the requisite 5v to make it more easily portable would be fantastic. So Jon, Marc, can you give us an eta on the USB boost module? I have a couple of projects coming...

Email Alert Mousetrap

Email Alert Mousetrap Well here is my latest little fun project. The Problem - Recent bad weather coupled with new developments around us has seen an influx of mice into our house.

Re: Experimenters Kit coming soon

Hi Jon,

Do you have an expected release date yet? One of the guys at work has been asking me about the sparkfun inventors kit that got me started, and I would love to give him a local alternative.

Cheers

Re: Getting extra parameters from DHCP

Well the 'best' way I can think of off hand would be to modify the dhcp library in your arduino folder to catch this information whenever the Arduino boots. You then store it as an integer for use by the clock program later on. I can see reference to the timerOffset value as option 2 in the library,...

Re: Getting extra parameters from DHCP

Hi , The answer is yes to both DHCP Option 002 - Time Offset "UTC Offset in seconds" DHCP Option 042 - NTP Servers Also DHCP Option 004 - Time Servers "Array of time server addresses by preference" These are all the Microsoft Standard ones and are fairly easy to configure if you are using windows.
