She spotted the stripped stranded wires in the top left corner of the image.





No technical PMs.
The last thing you did is where you should start looking.

Are those stranded wires?


Yes, they're stranded.  But, they're stranded together.  So, they're solid.

Damn, your right again.

I see what you did there.

From an "instructable-style" post by a supposed scholar:

Have a look at "blink without delay".
Did you connect the grounds ?

I guess the number "23" is the count of the crossed wires :)

In a recent Thread someone was asking how to tell whether the Vcc or the GND wire is disconnected. Maybe this picture would reassure him.

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

It's not 23, the picture's upside-down. 
It's ES, for Electronic Spaghetti.

I thought the image in Reply #322 might appear here :)

The human fingers make the cat picture less than convincing :)  :)

But sometimes a cat needs convincing.
What, I need to say something else too?

I don't have a cat now, but up until about 12 years ago, I had a had a cat, and often more than one. Cats never do anything out of gratitude, loyalty to their human, or just because it's the right thing to do. There is always an element of self interest involved with their activities, be it food, massage, or access to something or somewhere. I had one cat, Clyde, when I was a teenager that would come when called only if I was playing classical music (Beethoven, Bach or Tchaikovsky, but not Debussy or Ravel - he liked percussion) - I classify this as access since he didn't know how to use the record player.

Dogs, which I have now, never need convincing, their expectations are always high.

We don't have a dog or cat :)

Dogs are like cats in that they keep their bottoms clean, then lick your face  :smiley-zipper:

The diagram in Reply #327 is too good for the Wall of Shame!
