Very good point. I have to admit that sometimes the little Bean in my head gets rattled around [smiley=shocked.gif] and I speak before I think. Though I think James C4S got it too, Pauls reply was to say the least terse. However that's no excuse for my outburst!
@community at large my deepest apologies.
@PaulS, I have since looked at some of your posts and though some are a little snide most are very helpful. Sorry for the flame.
@ scarecrow47 I'm afraid I have also added to the bad impression of this forum and I apologize. For the most part this forum is THE forum for helpful information and good help and advice. I have looked at virtual breadboard too, it has a free version but as UnaClocker pointed out it's a PITA to work with even running windows. There is another option but I haven't tried it , NI Multisim http://www.ni.com/multisim/
. The best thing for you to do is to look at the tutorials in the playground, http://www.arduino.cc/
lots of good beginner stuff there. Read and research in this forum, also a lot of good stuff and bide your time until you get an Arduino of your very own and than have at it. It is a lot of fun and is very educational.
Once again, my apologies to all,
