    Picaxe start speed

    Hi, I've just put two picaxes (08M) on the same circuit and running the same program (2 lights flashing) and I have noticed that the starting speed is different for each of them. They never start at the same time. Why is this?

    Infrared with Java or VB.Net

    Hi, Is it possible to communicate via infrared from a computer to a picaxe chip? The manual doesn't say anything about it, using only tv remotes and other pixaxes as examples of transmitters. If it is possible, how would I go about doing this in Java or VB.Net (with a USB infrared port)? Thanks

    If I want to connect two picaxe chips together, do I need any resistors or anything like what is required to connect to the computer, or do I just need 1 wire (only send) and the same ground for both of them?

    Serial Interface

    Hi. I want to make the serial interface in picaxe_manual3.pdf, page 43 (the top circuit). Could someone tell me how many watts the resistors should be rated at? My options are .6 Watts and 1 Watt

    Distance sensor

    Hi, I've just bought a Picaxe 08M. While I was buying this, I asked for a sensor for finding distance. They gave me this (and a receiver which looks the same): They told me there were instructions on the picaxe website on how to set these up...
