    Data logging LC512

    Dear Forum, I'm want to log weather station data over 7 eeprom on the picaxe datalogger board. The wizard addresses each chip using i2c 0 to 16283 for the LC256. Is it as simple as editing the code to 0 to 32535 when using LC512? I understand the need to set set slave address. I also want...

    simple maths problem!!

    Dear All I'm simulating this simple maths on editor 5.2.7 let w0 = 913 let w1= w0 - 102 let w1= w1 *61 let w3= w1/100 let w2 =w1//100 I hoped w3 would be 494, but the simulator gives me 495. w2 is correct as 71. It seems to round up with some values What I'm I doing wrong please?
