@fungus
Yes, you are of course correct.
What I was tring to come across (did it poorly) was the clocking and data input functionality is similar.
19  Using Arduino / General Electronics / Re: Not all breadboards created equal on: September 16, 2014, 11:12:15 am
For the cost of the breadboards nowadays, probably a good idea to replace it as soon as you notice any interrmitant problems.
Also avoid large diameter components, especially near the center trough.
On the bad on you can remove the individual spring pieces and keep the ones that haven't been deformed.
Use as replacement in other bread boards as needed.

20  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: Suitable arduino for home automation system on: September 16, 2014, 12:04:22 am
All will work but what is it you want to do exactly?
Is it for Insteon, UPB, X10 or what?
21  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: Timer interrupts and Atomic macros on: September 15, 2014, 09:58:27 pm
You will be ok then.
22  Using Arduino / General Electronics / Re: TLC5916 questions on: September 15, 2014, 09:55:24 pm
These are similar except you use a series resistor with the each led.
You may get a better understanding of how clocking etc. work.

23  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: Timer interrupts and Atomic macros on: September 15, 2014, 08:28:11 pm
It will be held.
Just get finished with the section of code as fast as you can.
Some great reading here:

We need to see your wiring (show us an image of) and your code.
25  Using Arduino / General Electronics / Re: Storing Arduino and other hardware on: September 15, 2014, 06:06:23 pm
If you have a "Michaels" try there.
26  Using Arduino / General Electronics / Re: Selecting Wires on: September 15, 2014, 06:04:26 pm
You could use the wire you are showing.
Cut two pieces to length.
Twist them using a electrical drill.
Or get something like Cat 5 or 6 cable  (4 pair though).
I assume you want solid wire?

I didnt want to look like a total numpty
This happens to everyone now and then.
Keep on Arduinoing.

Can't i run the loops simultaneously
You never will however, they can be processed so they look like they are.

Show us your Code so we can see what you are doing.
See this image below (created by another member).

Is this homework?

Without resistor what limits current for output?
The Contoller will, i.e. eventually it will die.
Put a resistor in series with the LED!
