Maybe we could use it as a qualifying test for Newbies - "trace the purple wire"  :)

sounds more like hazing, than a newbie qualifying test ;)
heck, i am not even sure if i could trace it  :o :D

Full marks for even considering it.

I know I couldn't - which was the purpose of what was intended as a joke (sorry).

i tried, but my eyes blurred in seconds. there happens to be several purple wires in close proximity, makes it even more "fun" ;)

and yes, i knew it was a joke :P

Aside from the bugs, you'd better not loose your project at a trainstation or an airport or something..
Have a look at "blink without delay".
Did you connect the grounds ?

You have to cut the BLUE wire.
But which BLUE wire?
The DARK BLUE or LIGHT BLUE wire.
I cut the DARK BLUE, and now its TICKING! ! !
OR was that the DARK GREEN or LIGHT GREEN wire I cut?
I think my colour blindness may have been why I wasn't accepted in Bomb Disposal.! ! !

Should I take FRIES with that?

In the 70's an old college friend of mine, who lived in London, went to a concert in the Royal Albert Hall on the way home from work - and inadvertantly left behind his briefcase, which contained a 'wall of shame' worthy prototype of something or other.

At this time the IRA were in full action.

Next day he went back to collect it, and found the place crawling with Police and men in brown uniforms.


He explained why he was there, and after an uncomfortable interview, was allowed to collect his property - which he found surrounded with a wall of sandbags.


'Could you be more careful, next time, sir?'

Happier days - today they'd lock him up and throw away the key, no matter how innocent  the electronics or his intentions ..


Perhaps a salutary tale for us Arduino hackers?

The interesting thing is that a wire-wrapped computer prototype (and that used to be the standard way of building them) would have been just as much of a mess as the picture in Reply # 275 but without the benefit of multi-coloured wires.

The maker obviously doesn't have a two year old.


No technical PMs.
The last thing you did is where you should start looking.

Yeah. The 2-year-old would have done it much neater :)

Any project of similar complexity will look similarly impenetrable, if it's a single piece of silicon, wire-wrap or a PCB or whatever. But show it as a schematic with logical names on things and modules with defined interconnects, then it's understandable.

We just have to educate the newbies that this kind of photo or F**ing doesn't adequately explain what they're trying to build or why it doesn't work.

All it does show is the cause of any cross-talk that may occur. :o :o :o
