Anymore? Found a bunch that say arduino, even one pretending to the Arduino team, but not many active.

I recently began using my twitter account, after a lot of down time, are there any must follow users for Arduino or other Open source, tinkering, bodging or futzing around tweeters, that anyone can suggest or would like to share their own interest in.

If you would like to tweet me or see who I am following already drop a line to @Tinker_Tech or visit http://twitter.com/#!/Tinker_Tech

Something going on in ShenZhen? That place is not affected by weather in October.

The port of Shenzhen was shut down ahead of Typhoon Megi, which is expected to make landfall this weekend east of Hong Kong, the whole area is pretty much at a standstill, as much as it can be, getting ready for the hit.

Having spent a few typhoons in hong kong this has got to be a bad boy for them to shut the port that far ahead.

It is expected to be one of the biggest to threaten the South China coast in years.

Pretty much anything above a 3 the whole place locks down,schools close, all government closes, public transportation and most businesses close, nothing really moves and you pretty much lock your self at home or a near by bar and ride it out.

Also, I want to make the name "Protoduino"... Is this copyrighted, or is it available?

Ideas are awsome, and it is awesome to share ideas, but try to understand what it takes beyond the blue sky to understand what you are asking.

That was announced, in the release blog post that that would be a viable function, but wouldn't that be HID.

Seems to get programmed faster than the duemilanove

The serial connection now operates at 115800 bps in conjunction with the new optiboot on the 328 data is moving much faster.

Plus I would imagine the pacing of the optiboot would also add to the perception, even though it should be infinitesimal in boot speed difference.

But the real bump is in the data speed transfer rate.

Cool cool, thanks.

PS Did you grab a before and after pic, I d like like to do a quick write up from your forum post on my Tinker Tech blog, because it comes up alot and as I said I had two people who ended up bricking. so i t would be nice to show more than an anecdotal success.

You just bought me lunch, I bet someone you would "get the urge" just to look into it, but there were no guarantees you would report it here so the bet was I would ask back in a month and I wasn't allowed to encourage. smiley

Congrats on the upgrade and thanks for lunch.

 ;D ;D ;D ;D

Its a great scope either way, and you said you probably wouldn't be pushing the limits too much anyways. Have fun with it.

Yeah looks like it just may not be working as well as it originally did.

I have seen two work and two bricks, its a very simple change I mean essentially its just desolder a cap to kill the high pass filter circuit.

The two bricks were recent purchases, so there is a question if they made some changes to combat the alteration.

I mean one capacitor and you save $400 bux, does make a tempting target.

Are you going to hack it?

Yeah Jameco has etch kits too. I have made PCBs in the deep dark past, as a kid in the 70s, so the etching part isnt new to me, but those were pretty much hand drawn HUGE circuits, not big boards, BIG and I do mean big traces, think marksalot big traces and resistors the size of the ftdi chip on your arduino and caps the size of a pill bottle.

The part that is new to me is the fandangle computery part with minuscule traces, printed photoresist, smd parts and eagle layout.

Its not the computer side, I am an adept when it comes to that and even have heavy CAD experience for building layout, lotsa years designing haunts in autocad, but I was looking for someone that has the magic incantations and their own sooper sekret spells to teach me to do PCBs like the arduino.  

As to the just getting started it moves quickly and can be quite addictive, don't expect you will feel new for too long, and will definitely let ya know when there is a meet up.

So I have been tinkering around with the arduino since January and have built many projects, including my own standalone circuits on perfboard

Looking for anyone that wants to be a co conspirator in tinkering around with all kinds of stuff arduino.

I would even be up for forming a South Bay Area user group if enough were interested, as in 1 or more than me  ;D

Drop a line if you can help, need help or just want to chat in the area.
