Thank you for the sentiments biocow. I actually didn't expect a reply1
. I suppose someone could have said something like, "glad you have it working" or "glad to have helped." But those things are implied by the fact that folks were willing to help.
I was starting to take it personally but I guess people just aren't very chatty on this forum.
The level of chattiness seems to ebb and flow. The lack of response to your post can simply be timing.
The other problem is that, if there are no responses within the first few days, the message gets pushed down out of sight. Once out of sight, someone who would have replied won't find it to reply.
I think these two threads have one thing in common, they are thankyous and therefore don't ask a question.
I agree. About the only thing that can be said to a "thank you" is "you're welcome". The "you're welcome" is implied by the fact that help was provided so it seems rather redundant.
I've started a couple of threads that asked a specific question that received not a single response smiley-cry, so don't feel too bad.
Dang it! There's an email from you sitting in my inbox that needs a reply. Sorry about that Graynomad.
Was there ever a schematic posted for the level shifter
is it just a variation on the RS232 level changer on the Serial Arduino, or what?
Yes. (I'm embarrassed to say I never thought to look at the Serial Arduino for guidance) Two resistors and a 2N3904 --> a one bit inverting level shifter.1
Especially not from EmilyJane who, very unfortunately, appears to have wandered off.
