Is it wetter under water if you're there when it rains?
Is it faster to New York than it is by train?

(Darn it! How's the rest of that song go? I guess I have to dig out my Dr. Demento tape.)

Janitor Tzap, Try BING ( Boot It Next Generation) on your failed drives. You can recover most, if not all data on a HDD as long as it isn't toast / BING can see the drive. That's how I saved my last one when it lost its MBR. There are instructions on how to put it on a USB drive for boot purposes, b...

Dale, Thanks for jumping in. Not knowing the syntax of the Arduino language makes my replies a bit on the vague side with a hint of insight. ;) The beauty of setting a variable to control things instead of directly reading the sensor is that all you need is the initial change in state. Once that hap...

Hey guys. There's a thread down in Q&A which could use some help from an actual Arduino programmer. I've tried to help, but what little programming I've done was in BASIC and a tiny bit in VBasic. If someone would pop over and lend a hand, I know the OP would really appreciate it. Here's the pos...

Another question I have is: Have you drawn out a flow chart of your program? I believe that will help you better follow what you are trying to accomplish and help spot potential errors or conflicts, such as the IF/THEN problem. That way you'll know whether you are in a linear situation or if a branc...

Old school was that after an input, you would set a variable. It was this that you would work with. In BASIC, it would look something like this: IF Input > 0 THEN "variable #1" = A WHILE "variable #1" = A DO (XYZ) #after WHILE / DO is complete, reset "variable #1" to or...

The Geo Metro is either DIN, DIN and a half or Double DIN. They are too new for shaft and too old for "Infotainment". Hate to say it, but you could have purchased a new unit and a Scoshe install kit and been enjoying by now. Can't you follow the tape head path? As for the other issues, use...

I believe it is your IF THEN statement. You are continuously reading the output of the sensor which holds it in a low state. At that point, you need to stop reading the sensor and force the program to flow through the pause and then start reading the sensor again after you've given the arm enough ti...

I don't proclaim to be a programmer (DOSBASIC and some VB4 are about as far as I went), but one way to accomplish your goal is to: When the sensor detects the arm, set the sensor output to stop the rotation. "Pause" for 2 seconds (probably something like PAUSE 2000) When PAUSE is done, dis...

I've actually been to 4 different ones in my general and larger area during 2016. 2 are within 20 minutes of me, in opposite directions (Pottstown and King of Prussia) another about 1/2 hour from me (Thorndale) and one I've been to near a job between the Willow Grove and Bensalem exits of the PA Tur...

Seems like the manufacturers / ad agencies have really done their psychological job over the last 30 - 40 years in that they've cemented the "replace rather than fix" mentality. Just out of curiosity, what's the price differential between the controller board and the new stove? I know on m...

Somewhat related story: My old Hamilton Beach BrewStation coffee maker was one of the early models that was just on/off with a 2 hour timeout to turn the pot off automatically. The power button was a momentary NO switch that cyled the power on / off and ran the previously mentioned timer, so there w...
