Hi MrAl,

Thanks for the info on Sequences in the Euphoria language.

I've done up through Lesson 12 (started 13) in your tutorial. Good stuff!

I'll keep you posted on my progress.[/quote]

Hi MrAl, Sorry things have been busy the last couple of days. The course is excellent so far but I didnt get a chance to look at it yesterday. I'll check out the Euphoria language as soon as I get a chance. Are sequences similar to arrays? Yes, the C Compiler only works for the C18 chips. The way I ...

By the way: regarding small SMT parts, have you seen the Schmartboards yet? They make soldering SMT parts easy because the footprints are physically indented into the circuit board. So when you solder, the IC stays put. To me, they are a little on the expensive side to be useful (I have a lot more t...

Hi MrAl, Re-sent the PM. I don't know why it didn't work-- it seems to be in my "outbox" here at N&V. I'm in the process of working through your online course. I took all of the self tests through Lesson 9 to make sure I remembered all of the math. I had to refresh my memory on the sums of powers......

Hi MrAl, I sent you A PM with my e-mail and phone. Let me know if you want to set up something outside of this forum. Even if you prefer to set up a separate web site/forum/wiki, I have a web site at http://www.digi-sys.com that I am not using for anything. My web host has a ton of bulletin board an...

Is there a robotics club? (sumo, line following, etc) As I mentioned in the original post, anything is fine with me... but I can't even find a robotics club in this area. I'm sure some of the schools have things going on, but I'm no longer a student. I've been considering joining the NJ HAM org bec...

Hey MrAl, I would love to eventually learn how to design my own circuits, but I want to start with working alongside other people. What do you think a first project would be? Well, let me tell you what I've done so far, and maybe you'd want to make some suggestions. I've been a bit intimidated by an...

Hi Again, So let me ask what your math background is like if you care to share? You can always PM me if you want to tell me in private if you prefer. I got my BSCS at NJIT with an emphasis on applied math. Unlike a lot of Computer Science programs, NJIT was very strong on taking math classes, and ma...

Hi MrAl, Thanks for the response. My question however would be where would this be held? LOL... well, that's part of the reason I was looking for a club that was already established. That, and the fact that I've never lead a club in my life. I'm willing to travel a bit, perhaps 45 min to an hour top...

Hi guys, Thanks for the responses. With the advent of MAKE magazine and Instructables.com, I think there has been something of a renewed interest in microcontrollers and DIY digital electronics. This is the closest I've been able to find near me, but in reading some of the details it may be invite o...

Any hobbyist clubs in the Northern NJ area?

Hi folks, I'm interested in electronics in general, preferably microcontrollers and digital electronics. Robotics would be fine too. I'm trying to find out if anyone knows of any hobbyist orgs in the Northern NJ area. There are some HAM radio clubs but radio is not my thing, plus those RF circuits c...

That seems like a pretty exciting discovery. The more quickly we quit relying on oil the better! Thanks for sharing.
