Hi,

Thanks for the putting the work into the server move and forum upgrade--I'll have to take a look at the RSS features.

A few thoughts:

Is it just my imagination or has the "quote" reply button disappeared?

but I still want to post a link to my latest build, but I cant, because I'm not up on 10 post's yet.
FWIW I think that requirement should be removed--it's reasonable for a new valid poster to want to post a URL and IMO I think not being able to do so is too high a price to pay for anti-spamming. [Update: After catching up on the last couple of days postings and noticing at least 4 or 5 comments from posters negatively impacted by this I'm even more convinced this is too high a price to pay.]

Considering that from now on I'm manually approving any new user to filter out spammers...
Are you manually approving the new user or a first post? I still consider delays like this for new users sub-optimal but YMMV.

I did wonder why things seemed quiet spam-wise--I guess this means I'm out of a job already and can hang up my spam-moderation mantle. smiley-grin

Thanks again for the putting the work into the server move and forum upgrade--it's appreciated!

P.S. For anyone that missed it there's some interesting info on the server upgrade on the Arduino blog: http://arduino.cc/blog/?p=74

I've made notes on using the TI UCC283-5 and UCC283-3 low drop out (LDO) voltage regulators.

I used the UCC283-3 with success on my Netduino project.

Disclosure: The ones I used were from TI's sample programme.

Could this be done with an Arduino?
In theory, yes, probably.

I've been working on adapting the AVRUSB code and circuit to work as a library and expansion shield for the Arduino. This has included working to get it functioning as a HID keyboard device. I've had non-complete success with this.

The current status is that I've managed to successfully send a "B" keystroke to Ubuntu Linux computers from the Arduino board but haven't repeated this success on either OS X or Windows machines yet. (I've yet to upload the code--it's on my to do list.)

So, in theory, replacing the keycode with that for the Caps Lock key should work.

--Phil.

P.S. My forward motion on this project has been temporarily restrained due to distraction by a new toy from Atmel. smiley
