    Just a note to go with that. I've had it going for a few days now and it's keeping the correct time. I'll post some pictures of final product when it's finished. Thanks so much. It's been lots of fun.

    Hello Sir. I've finally got the clock working on the breadboard. Had to do some rewiring (switches) and much reading and studying (in between my farming). Now to finalize it into a permanent container. Thanks so much for making the original and inspiring the rest of us too. I'll post a picture of the final product when it's complete.

    Bolts in a Bottle

    Hello. Love this idea. Something to consider using is a strong magnet to line up the bolts and nuts. I say a big one for the bottom to hold all the extras out of the way. Then a smaller one to move everything around with. Could help you get them buggers to the neck easer. I'll have to try it when I get time to make one.

    Mr_fidLove the clock. Built it on a breadboard. Having problems with code. I would like for you to take a look and see where I'm off. What's a good way to send it to you? I've copied some of the errors for you to get a brief glimpse.

No formal classes or instructors just a few books (Programming Arduino, Simon Monk)Any help would be both great and educational. (chalk one more up for hard knocks)Thanks

    I have an interesting observation. Last month HB sent us Go-Cubes to try. Now this month we are sent a "Hack the Planet" squeeze toy. Could it be that they think we are still feeling the affects from the Go-Cubes? Which make me wonder what's on tap for next month. "Things that make you go Hummmmmmmm!!!!!" Still HB'es are exciting and fun. Keep up the great work.

    HackerBoxes 0012: Digital Logic

    Hi. First off. Thanks to all who have worked so hard putting this project together. I know that I'm lacking in the imagination department but what can I use all this in. Last months project I was able to use it for a scouting project. I understand the circuit well enough but I go back to what can I use it in. Can I incorporate into a circuit to count up or down? Maybe some sort of a clock? I don't know. Any ideas or help would be great. Thanks again to the folks who put it together.

    Ok I get it. I'll give it a whorl. Thanks again.

    Thanks again for you help. I got it going. So cool and Learning a little more on programming.

  • Controlling LED matrix array with Arduino Uno (Arduino powered robot face)

    Bugging you one more time. Plan "A" 8x8 not working so well but for Plan "B" I also bought an 8x8 by 4 long ( SainSmart MAX7219 Dot Matrix Module 4 in one for Arduino ). At the end of your sketch you write "characters must be declared rotated 90 degrees ..." As I am new to this and want to have this ready for Scouts on Tuesday, How do I declare the rotation? Thanks so much for your help.

    IgorF2I've gotten all the parts in but was wondering if this project will work with a Arduino Pro Mini? No big deal if it doesn't. I have only one extra Duo but a couple extra Pro Mini'sThanks for all your (and your teams) work.

    Bugging you one more time. Plan "A" 8x8's not working so well. I guess I went too cheap on parts. However Plan "B" I also bought (at the same time) a " SainSmart MAX7219 Dot Matrix Module 4 in one for Arduino ". At the end of your sketch you wrote "Characters must be declared rotated 90 degrees..." As I am new to this and want to have this ready for Scouts on Tuesday, How do I declare the rotation? Your help is VERY much appecerated.
