But don't replace the title with SOLVED, rather add SOLVED to the title so peeps still know what it's about, as in "SOLVED: How do I parse an HTTP GET?:

You could put the toy on the high side of an NPN resistor with its base tickled by an IO pin. Your code would casue the IO to go low and turn the toy off.

That fails safe by my thinking: if the Arduino goes off for whatever reason, the IO pin disappears and the transistor would go off.

If you want to sneaker-net the data around

Now, there's a term I haven't heard for a decade or two....

anyone know if I can work with js code on the arduino ethernet like server?

thanks

Yep, go and look at these tutorials for the whole APEX thing....

What do you mean "ethernet like"?

I remind you that that England was conquered by Guillaume le Conquérent (William the Conqueror) duke of Normandie
England was conquered by William the Bastard, who was, of course, of Viking (Norseman == Norman) origin.
His ancestors (of less than two centuries) just happened to have conquered that part of Northern France.  smiley-wink

To quote Thin Blue Line.... "William the Bonkerer"

Great example of Project Management from idea to implementation. Seems like you identified your scope and stuck to it.... huge cause of project failure is either not defining the scope or not sticking to it anyway.

Ordering my laser cut parts today.

Guys can you post a close-up of the brass stud and rivets that you mentioned in the parts list you sent me?

Also, the long spacers between the sides- see pic attached- are they on the parts list? I don't know what they are called. They look similar to the spacers I got with my Magician chassis.... are they commercial parts? EDIT... is that what you're calling Brass Studs, items 8-11 on the list?

I think you mentioned an assembly instructable somewhere.... is that up?

P.S. What did you use to make that diagram?

That's a Fritz.

uphill both ways.

How did that work?

Simple

                    /^\
                  /      \
  home_ /           \_school
                    hill



Ah ok.... so net change in height = 0 so no work done. Therefore actually the same as this:

home --------- school

and therefore the world is flat.   smiley-cool

I bet that back in the day Lefty, you were an ace at doing those line printer calendar pix of Snoopy and so on.

I think  they are contemptuous  and rude.

Nah, just light-hearted banter, much like Inspector Fowler in Thin Blue Line. Or, with the boot on the other foot, the iconic French Taunter sketch in Monty Python's Holy Grail.

Consequently there is strong probalilité that you have French origins.

Except that I didn't say I was of English (and therefore perhaps French) heritage, although I was born in England...

In future put small cheap fuses in front of the expensive big ones.....

Just put smaller fuses in front of the bigger ones then the bigger ones won't pop  smiley-cool

Haa haa, true, forgot about that.


Takes a civil engineer to figure this crap out....

As another test, get some 450mA, 600mA and 1A fuses

Which answers your earlier question..

isn't there some kind of a cut off circuit to prevent this from happening?
