Nah, I wouldn't say I was disappointed with them per say. I just prefer the clear lens LED's as you can generally tell when they are or aren't on in broad daylight. I hadn't powered these up yet, but after having done that, they do put out a good amount of light for desktop use.
Here's a picture of my 10 yr old son wearing it, he soldered it together himself. I bought the kit for him to solder, as I've been looking for something novel like this for him to get more soldering experience on.

Thanks for the great kit.

I sanded off a small patch of solder mask, tinned the copper with a very large iron, then soldered on a clip from a pin. You can now wear this unit on your shirt. It looks great. smiley
I also substituted the dim red led's with surface mount blue LED's. smiley Don't have a picture of that at the moment, though.

Nope, same problem. Turned User Account Control all the way down, rebooted, same error. I'll try the standard Arduino and see if the problem goes away.

I can't get it to run, I'm getting this message:

This is on a fresh machine that's never had the base Arduino installed, so maybe this version has only been tested on an existing setup so far?

This is VERY awesome. All these improvements are great and much needed. I hope your improvements can get rolled into the next update of the official version.

Sweet! So I can just do a Serial.begin(7815); and it'll work with the default clock crystal? That's easier than I thought.  And yes, that is the link I was looking for. Thank you.

Awhile back, maybe 2 months or so, someone somewhere posted a spreadsheet or a website that would let you put in different crystal frequencies, and see what serial port frequencies you could get with that crystal. Now that it comes time to use that information, I can't seem to locate it again.
Does anyone else remember the post? May have been on this forum, but I can't seem to nail the right search terms, may have been on some blog somewhere, but google fails me as well.
Maybe someone has the equation and I can just do it by hand? I need 7815bps, and 62500bps, in case someone knows the crystal frequency off the top of their head.
Can software serial do this? I'd prefer to avoid software serial, as I'm going to be datalogging to an SD card and would like to keep the CPU overhead to a minimum, but if I must, I must..

Is this a common rail diesel? If that's the case, what are you firing the injectors with, hardware wise? I'd be interested to see the board you built to drive the injectors.
If it's not common rail, you're simply fine tuning the adjustments on a mechanical injection pump, which is cool in it's own right.
What are you using for an RPM input circuit?

Can the head rotate the part before placing it? Seems like that'd be important. Looks like the parts twist a little when placed. Does the solder paste normally catch them and hold them still? I'd like to see a video of it in action on a board with more random spacing between the parts.

Basic? Like from the 80's? Shame it doesn't use Wiring like the Arduino.

RaspBerry Pi  3 New 3 Month Delay??

I was supposed to get my Pi in early June. Today I got this news:
---------------------( COPY )--------------------------
Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances causing a delay in the supply chain, we can't send your order just yet, but it will be despatched the week commencing 09/07/2012. You will receive a confirmation email prior to your Raspberry Pi being shipped.
-----------------( END COPY )----------------------

Ouch! Which vendor did that to you? Allied is the only one still holding out on me. I got 2 from RS and 2 from Newark already. I had originally expected to be able to buy about 1 a month, I suppose if I staggered my orders out better, it'd work out that way. Really strange that they can't fill the orders that were placed months ago.

Not bad. Probably the best looking home made board I can recall seeing. Might be time to step up to one of the budget professional options though.

Yeah, I was playing with it last night, granted, I have my Pi overclocked to 1GHz, but anyways, it's totally usable. I can't seem to out-type it, which is more than I can say for the web browser. Compiling a simple sketch takes about a minute. It uploaded to my Uno just fine.
59  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / Re: Difference between '328 and '328P? on: June 14, 2012, 11:08:31 pm
I bought a bunch of the non-P ones. Once I figured out how to get the Arduino uploader to recognize them, they've worked out great. Didn't realize there was a difference till after I had them and went to program them. I just bought them on a whim when I saw the nice price. smiley

Raspbian has Arduino 1.0.1 in the repository's.. Simple "sudo apt-get install arduino", sets all the permissions and everything.. smiley
