I think it was one guy replying to several old threads.
Would have been better if he had posted one new thread.

That's being very unkind to the Elmer Fudds and Barry Kripkes of this world.

My favourite question is "I am designing a traffic light system..." as though it's a project they have set themselves.

It also shows how many people just ask a question without at least trying to use the Search facility.

You never know!  I actually have a vintage traffic light that used to hang in my town.  (The un-hanging of that light is completely legit and has nothing to do with me.... to the best of my knowledge.)  My first circuit design was a 555 timer and decade counter to cycle the lights.  One of my first Arduino projects was to digitize that process.  To this day I haven't actually had the board made with relays to control the bulbs, but the LEDs lit up nicely.

They stop posting that at the end of term [semester]. We'll get a 6 week break shortly.

The blink without delay example is the favourite for that.

I had heard that the Motorola 6800 was designed to run traffic signals.
Didn't they use redundant controllers and consensus actions? The racetrack betting machines I knew did a couple of coders for ran that way on 6800's. Those and 6502's are register-sparse but they have redeeming features. I would put a 1 MHz 6502 in almost the same class as a 4 MHz 8085 or Z80.

But why save the time just finding the answers right there to read when, you can type a question that starts a process that may eventually lead you to the same point after hours to days or weeks. Which is easier?

However, when you don't know what you're looking for then how do you search for it or know when you see it?
