    Hooray for privacy !

    A rare thing indeed! I feel... un-violated. Why is there no english word for "un-violated"? Normally when I click on the "visualise page" thing, I get a cobweb of perversity. The PICAXE site doesn't have anything to report. Here is an example of a site I picked at random from my...

    Can I leave out the serial plug?

    Sadly that boat isn't mine. Somehow I could never find the thousands of hours to restore one, or all the dollars :) And yeah, some of the boat club members insist on running/risking losing their foot on a flywheel to start their motors. Putting an LCD even close to their boats would bring...

    For sale.Cold fusion reactor.Home made.Not working.$2000 ONO

    I've been battling disease. But as people are taking offence at this thread, I'll not post to it any more. I was just thanking a few people who I missed when I was going back over my education these last few days (and I did slip up and ask a question a while back). I'm trying to get back up...

    Mode button, select code section to run with a button - no interrupt

    Getting there. It's been nothing life threatening, just gut issues. I spent a year in bed though. How many things to go... checks blog.... 101 to go as far as the blog is concerned. oh well :) I have still been learning, (for instance I now make websites rather than my 25 years as a...

    For sale.Cold fusion reactor.Home made.Not working.$2000 ONO

    I think this is when I started getting sick, so depending on how I was feeling at the time, some of this stuff didnt stick. Luckily/unfortunately, google never forgets. It came up in a search for this very thing as I was looking into power saving adjustments to make projects last for as long...

    Can I leave out the serial plug?

    These devices were attached to the cooling water outlet of immaculately restored Putt-Putt boats... to scream an alarm if the cooling water intake was blocked by weed or whatever, and although there were only a few lines of code, I took your advice and added the plug, although I think if...

    Mode button, select code section to run with a button - no interrupt

    I was doing a google search for something, and as is often the case, this thread of my own came up. I haven't been around for a while due to all my vomit falling out over the last few years (general health issues), but I dont think I ever thanked you quite enough for all the help you gave me...

    Free 9v Duracell coppertop batteries

    I've always asked before retrieving phones form office works, but I'm not sure the person behind the counter has the right to grant me permission. As for the batteries at the library recycling depot, I'm going to return them anyway, but just with less of the E-Lec-Tricity in them. Less to...

    Free 9v Duracell coppertop batteries

    I wonder if buying them might be a way around that. ie offer them a dollar for a sackful and sign a receipt. [edit - Opps that was meant to be a reply to @hippy

    Free 9v Duracell coppertop batteries

    My local recycling drop off point for used batteries is my local library, so they might be a good source as well. We have a National "change your smoke alarm battery day" so I'm pretty sure you could just reach into the box at the library and fill a sack full of reasonable batteries as well. A...

    Free 9v Duracell coppertop batteries

    I live in a rental property in Australia, and every year some contactor guy comes and replaces my smoke alarm battery. When he gave it to me the voltage read 10.11v (I think). After shorting it for a few seconds the voltage dropped to 9.6v, and is now hanging around at that voltage after...

    Can I leave out the serial plug?

    If I'm making a run of devices*, and none of the people that will have the devices will be re-programming the chip, I figure I can just program the chips on my prototype, then leave out the plug on the other devices. The question is, how do I tie down the serial-in pin when there's no plug...

    step over and simtask using collapsing code blocks

    Just some thoughts that would make it easier for beginners like me. Desired Feature: I use code blocks a lot to help me focus on the important bit I'm working on, but every time you run the sim they are all left expanded at the end. It would be nice if they reverted back to the way they were...

    One Gosub with multiple Returns - sometimes it runs sometimes not

    I have some code that runs sometimes and sometimes halts with Error msg - "Return without GoSub". It runs perhaps 19 out of 20 times (those numbers are just a guess) The problem is I'm not sure if I can use return like this. I can get around it, but I'd like to know for future reference if...

    Constants list reports incorrect pin numbers

    Can anyone tell me why symbol Motor = c.0 reports under the Constants list Motor = 8 It's as if the pin numbers are back to front. symbol Motor = c.1 reports Motor = 9 Are these numbers (8 and 9) not pin numbers? In not, can anyone tell me what they are?

    When to use Goto and not Do While/Until

    Is it best practice to use a GoTo in this situation? Or should this be in another Do loop in some form? I guess the question is, If there is nothing conditional, is a GoTo ok? Main: Gosub Init ' populate some variables Continue: ' Do until pin3 = 1 ' ' Add the rest of your...

    Mode button, select code section to run with a button - no interrupt

    I couldn't find this and needed it, so I thought I'd share it now that it's done. It's my first public post of finished code so please excuse anything odd. It allows a user to hold down a momentary switch until an LED indicates the switch has been recognised, then release the switch to change...
