Re: S-Video cable? What's in there?

I got some really long made up S-video cables from Farnell-inOne here in the UK, and really cheap too... about £5ish for 15m<p>Perhaps Newark-InOne have them too<p>BobMcN

Re: ¿ A very different approach for circuit boards ?

Slightly off-topic i know, but over here in the UK we have a supplier that sells an acetate-like sheet that you laser print your PCB design onto, you then iron-on (yes with an Iron ladies!!) your design onto a copper-clad board and then etch as usual, cuts out all this photo-fixing stuff...

Re: Anyone here using PicAxe microcontrollers ?

PicBasic/Stamp/PicAxe do appear to be part of some school curriculum here... i have found a few sites, for simple projects (LED flash / Beep..Beep / switch-read etc) but i am really interested in more meaty stuff... anything that will push the boundaries of the PicAxe, whether it be timing, memory o...
