Ignore him and he will soon move on I suspect.


Well, I still want that list!

Also, how do we know he's not *actually* Alex Jones, using a pseudonym?

In any case, I find this thread quite fascinating. Are there *really* people still programming in BASIC in this day and age? It's like banging rocks together to make a fire.

The whole thread is so bizarre, it is quite compelling, in a morbid sort of way...
WiFi shields/Yun too expensive? Embeddedcoolness.com is now selling the RFXduino nRF24L01+ <-> TCP/IP Linux gateway: Simpler, more affordable, and even more powerful wireless Internet connectivity for *all* your Arduino projects! (nRF24L01+ shield and dev board kits available too.)

Dean Camera writes on avrfreaks forum using the following important names:
abcminiuser


This is uncontroversial. It's well known that "abcminiuser" is Dean Camera's AVRFreaks handle.

OTOH, what *possible* evidence do you have for this?

Also "pico" in Dean Camera on arduino forum!

Why, it's a figment of his imagination, let the troll go his way.

We know nothing about him, other then his POV on Bascom AVR and the Arduino platform.

Sure, there are many people who still personally like to use the Basic language and that is as it should be. There is a very active product/platform/user's forum for the Picaxe chips and they do fun and impressive stuff with those chips just as the arduino users do. No reason to look down on them or the Basic language.

That is the mark of a successful troll performing his art form.

OK, I'm discovered!

But I can prove *you* are Alex Jones!

Simplex is an obvious anagram of 'LEX IS PM

--an obvious reference to Alex's well-known political ambitions in the UK.

Also, if you play "Simplex" backwards on a 33 1/3 vinyl LP it says "I am Alex".

How do explain that, eh Alex?
