What made you think that your question has anything to do with the Website and Forum section which is clearly stated to be for "Improvements for the web system, applications to moderator, spam, etc."? I have suggested to the Moderator to move it to the Programming section.

This sort of carelessness makes unnecessary work for the Moderators.

It only writes ONE "a", but your program is coded so it writes the single "a" over and over again, just like you told it to do.

Anything in setup() runs only once (unless you force it to repeat using code loops). Put it there.

Hi,
Welcome to the forum.

Please read the post at the start of any forum , entitled "How to use this Forum".
OR
http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php/topic,148850.0.html.
Then look down to item #7 about how to post your code.
It will be formatted in a scrolling window that makes it easier to read.

Thanks.. Tom... :slight_smile:
