Sometimes, it's brilliant like Morris Dovey's unsigned division routine.

But more often it's something that should should earn automatic, possibly life-time Tea Party membership and I can't think of anything like an appropriate, helpful, reply. I could say more but just thinking about it... no, uh-uh, it's just too much and not in a good way at all.

I find it harder to express logic in English than in Code.
Sometimes an example says more than many times as many words.

How about a link to this...?

...and one here, too - we could all use a good laugh (or cry), I suppose...? :D
I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.

I dunno where Morris' thread is now and I don't want to put names on the others. How many people do you see who can send and receive C string arrays who can't figure out WTH a char array actually is?  Of course that's the time they get taught to use C++ String objects by educated folk and once again I am even more amazed.

Hate to break it to you man, but...

It's the effing syntax!

Arduino is my first "C" like language, I normally use assembler, Forth, Python, Pascal or Pascal like languages.

You know, languages that are readable!

I run Debian, not Ubuntu, since Woody or Potato, can't remember which came first, I was amazed at how many languages came with the 3 and then the 7 CD install.
Stuff I had only read about, like Chill, Ada, Oberon, Modula.

How many of my posts here have started with,
"Can I do this in Arduino or do I have to go to assembler"?

One of the problems is the basic information is pretty damn basic.
Since I bought "Programming Interactivity", "Making Things Talk", "Building Wireless Sensor Networks" things have gotten a bit less confusing.

So go on, be smug, but it just makes you look like an ass.
