Well I finally got my wireless text LED display going after wasting a whole afternoon again, chasing the second equals sign !
In future I will  put the variable second as in if(20==x) as I was advised last time .. :-/

yea I used to have that problem, then did not for the longest while, then ended up banging my head on the desk for a good 20 min over it last night

habits are hard to break sometimes though

just wait, in no time you will be accidentally ending sentences with semicolons.  ;D


I'm fairly sure you need to end each line with a dot, and each sentence with a semicolon!
Your message does not compute! Syntax error on line 1 near 'just wait', a parameter has been omitted [wait(long time)]!


Every programmer I know has been caught by that one - usually more than once.

If you added up the cost in programmer time of C and Java allowing you to put assignments in conditions I bet it would come to many many millions of dollars.
