I would recommend http://www.imageshack.us/ for photo storage. It is so easy that I use it instead of uploading images to my own website. Its a totally free service and there is no limit on how many images you may upload. You don't even have to sign up!<p>Harrison

Just create an account and then use their file manager to upload the image file(s). You can also put up web pages, etc.

Philba >> yes i am doing this by hand..
cannot find anyone that makes boards that big,and besides..i probably couldn't afford it..
i had to make the circuit board by hand too..point to point wiring..
i am doing the same with the leds..wish there was a way i could post fotos for all to see..N&V should add this option soon..
anyway , i might send fotos to N&V..maybe they might do an artical on it. i dunno.
i got 3 more wires to solider then i am ready to assemble the whole thing. but 1st i need to find me some old blank IC Headers..i need 3 of them, 16 pin types.
need them so i can plug the display onto the circuit boards ic sockets , if anyone has any let me know..will pay,
<hr></blockquote><p>mouser carries them. http://www.arieselec.com/products/12032.pdf
I'm sure your favorite disti has them too.<p>By the way, I am looking at several projects where I'd have LED arrays. The approach I'm looking at is to design smaller boards - say 16x16 LEDs. They could be assembled edge to edge so it looks continuous. Proto quantities can be done reasonably cheaply.

Philba >> the matrix fashion i am doing is,,,the leds are in a big circle...not like a modual as you might be thinking , as in a moving message sign...
i got 60 leds in a circle,,but wired in a 10x6 configuration,,,

Arrrggggghhh !
wasn't thinking tonight..
i made a critical mistake in wiring up my display
i should have started the seconds on the 00 mark rather the 01 mark...did same with the minutes too
at least i got the hrs right..lol
anyway...i am gonna spend another day or 2 rewiring the display...but it all functions good otherwise,except for being out of step..
will keep you all posted..

ok, its all done.. igot it straightened out and all working and assembled before new year!
i am sooo stoked..been working onit all year ..was my new year resolution back then..
and i got it all finished at 8am..Phuuu !
even tho it seems crude built..all point to point wiring on a circuit board from the shit shack
i think i did rather well..
its keping perfect time so far.. no problems with glitching or anything..
i do got a ton of $$ in it tho,,but i think it was all worth it.. cannot wait to show it off to all my friends...well thats all of this for now..
now i got to decide what i am gonna build next for this year...have a good one everyone !

Let's see...what am I working on? I'm working on a device for my car that will switch between my music and GPS voice prompts from my pocket PC playing over my car speakers :) <p>Not sure what I'll take on after that...
