Re: How to sense over/under frequency ?

There is an old Ic which I think is still around, which can be used as a V to F or an F to V - now to remember it's part number, I think it was an LM something - used to be used a lot for rev counter projects.

Found it! http://www.jaycar.com.au/images_uploaded/LM2907.PDF

What happens if you just ping or traceroute your router? My result is less than 1ms and if I trace to my cable modem I get a 1ms response via the router.

Re: Trying to debug a timeout error

Should the 169.254.0.0 entry be there? Seeing as how that is an MS provided fall back when it can't resolve to a DHCP or manual IP address.

That looks to be the routers gateway address, which doesn't look right to me - but I'm not an authority on this.

It consists of two parts - the main peripheral module board - TV, Audio, PS/2, Keyboard, USB, Ethernet, connections, and the FPGA board which is an Altera Cyclone 12,060 elements, 4M...

I'm not sure, but a problem there is that the server(s) being used for the attack appeared to be from the provider of one of the main DNS servers for the Philippines.

For a console application, I'm pretty sure the only class you will need is system.io

Same as Visual Basic, you will need to decide if you are opening binary or text files etc.

Not sure how relevant this is to the US hobby market but if you intend to use lead free solder, make sure you get an iron that has enough heat capacity and comes with so called lead free bits. Sadly, bits do not last very long in the pb free environment, If you can afford it, then I quite like the M...

Legally they should reduce the price by 19% as they would be shipping to a non EU/VAT country.

If you want to use I2C phone displays, then there is a Romanian supply who has these very cheap.
