I just felt it necessary to remind people that when you are contracting the words "you are", it becomes "you're", not "your".  "Your" is the possessive form.  For example "You're going to fry your Arduino."

An exception can be made for folks who are not native English speakers.

He he.    ;D   ;)

What about elevensies? Luncheon? Afternoon tea? Dinner? Supper?

koyaanisqatsi, I appreciate your comment.  That is somewhat of a pet peeve of mine as well.  Thanks for speaking up for proper english.  "Evil flourishes when good men do nothing."   ;)

And sometimes I remember to close up that methane leak before lighting a candle, but hey, no one's perfect.

Heh.  I'm usually standing in my garage when I solder.  So pants aren't the issue for me...  I learned the hard way to not solder while wearing SANDALS.  You can't kick molten solder out from between you're toes very easy.   :o

Then I suggest wearing sandals. As soon as you spill some solder, you'll warm up in no time doing the Moonwalk(tm).  [smiley=2vrolijk_08.gif]
• Upload doesn't work? Do a loop-back test.
• There's absolutely NO excuse for not having an ISP!
• Your AVR needs a brain surgery? Use the online FUSE calculator.
My projects: RGB LED matrix, RGB LED ring, various ATtiny gadgets...
• Microsoft is not the answer. It is the question, and the answer is NO!

Shouldn't it be your toes?  ;)

haha, yeah it annoys me. Mostly it is duemilanova! That's not even english. I can live with the other errors as there are many people who are not native english speakers on this forum.

It does bother me when people spell Arduino names wrong.  I get that they're kind of difficult to spell, but how long does it take to memorize "Duemilanove" and "Diecimila"?
