    Control  a Servo over the Internet

    Hey i'm trying this out. When I copy and past the Web code and save as an html file it just displays the same code in the browser when I open it. Also, the code for the Particle Photon it says in your instructions to connect to D0 but the code has A0, Is that right?

    I got mine up and running with no problem at first until it came to the wi-fi. After reading through the suggestions I was able to get connected stetting the driver to "nl80211". I set it to "none" and it didn't work. But afterwards I set me locale correctly so maybe that was part of the problem to begin with.

    Yes definitely in this case I'm sure it is. Was just sharing that bit I knew from my days installing car stereos and mobile electronics. As long as they don't put DCC we will be alright! :)

    Thanks Slackmaster! That helps a lot.

    ACC is typically used in the automotive industry and I think means ACCessory circuit. When you insert key into ignition switch and turn it to the left (backwards) you are turning on the ACC circuit. It will allow you to operate radio, windows and other accessories, but it does not turn on fuel pump and other engine controls. It saves battery for when you need to operate vehicle components without engine being on.

    Jasper,You were close. I figured I must have had it backwards but I double checked several times and I had it correct. After closer examination I discovered the chip was on backwards. Actually the whole socket was soldered on the board backwards. The chip was in the socket the correct way. I turned it around and was good to go. Then I discovered the cr2031 battery was dead. I put in a new one and I am in business! Thanks for tip to get me going!

    This hackerbox was jam packed full of good stuff. I put the clock together. One piece of the plastic case had a small crack the acrylic but no big deal. It all went together smooth. If anyone has any more info on the modes and setting that would be great. Mine has to have two different times and the alarm time. I'm trying to figure out what the two times are, can you switch between 12hr/14hr, and change the temp from Celsius to Fahrenheit. Now I just need a backup battery!

    I'm going to use the traffix light with an ultrasonic sensor in the garage so my wife will know when to stop the car.

    I finally got around to soldering the VU meter together. A hat tip @park_ind_ent for the tip on the dot mode. Works like a charm! :)
