Is this a fake G-Shock? Answered

Hi, I've got a G-Shock with the model no. G-100-1BVMES. Is this a fake model no. as I can't find it on European, US or UK G-Shock websites. I got it from a well-known jewellers so I don't think it's fake...but when I looked the model no. up it only appears on a few websites. On the G-Shock UK website is appears as looks like my one but I'm not 100% sure if it is a real one under a less popular name. Any information would be much appreciated. Thank You super_me

Use G+ as an K'NEX outlet?

As many of you guys know, I am a firm believer in an alternative site for us K'NEXers. I just think that the K'NEX world is big enough, and cool enough, for us to find our own "colony," if you will. But, sadly, the amount of work it would take to move everyone from here to that "other colony" would be rather impossible to do, besides, how do we guarantee that we'd keep them there? So then, I had this idea. A large majority of people who have a email address use Gmail, right? So, why don't we just create a G+ K'NEXers page and a G+ group to stay in touch? After all, it is easier to just post a quick pic on G+ than to come here to instructables, and the Google hangouts option allows us to chat and keep in touch via IMs. On top of all that, it is just better that we keep to ourselves, after all, the instructables site is more for Make/How to/DIY, and K'NEX really doesn't fill that slot, IMO. Don't get me wrong, instructables is a great website, run by great people, but the K'NEX world deserves its own area on the web. What do you guys think? How many of you have Gmail (you needn't post your email address), and how many would be willing to get a "fake" email address to keep in touch? Again, like many of my other topics on this subject, this forum thread is just to gauge interest. -The Red Book of Westmarch

G+ links showing up as youtube videos

OSX 10.9.3 Chrome 35.0.1916.114 When commenting on an Instructable, I pasted in a Google Plus link to an image gallery. Example: This link was incorrectly assumed to be a youtube video and showed a broken youtube video as soon as I hit return after the link. This link was parsed as a youtube video as long as u/0/ was in the string. Any string that included "u/0/" was parsed as a youtube video and any string without it was parsed correctly.

G-Code interpreter/loader/streaming for Arduino UNO without Stepper Drivers?

I have a MAXNC CL10 mill, which stopped working a few weeks ago, PICs not working... Anyway, Looking for a sketch to interpret G-code and drive the unipolar motors. I searched around and founded Grbl and a few others, which uses driver circuits, but I don't know enough about programming to change them to what I can use. Any hints, pointers, road maps would be helpful.

G.E. dielektrol capacitor making popping sounds internally Answered

I recently acquired a G.E. 40,000 volt capacitor and initially it was fine but it has started making loud popping sounds inside while charging and discharging. It sounds like there might be arcing inside but it still holds a charge just fine which is quite strange. The sound always comes from the same exact spot and the capacitance has decreased from 1.88 uf to 1.5 uf. I'm wondering if inside the cap there is several smaller ones and maybe a connection came loose during shipping but I really don't want to pull it apart because it's welded shut. Any advice on what I should do would be helpful :) Thank in advance!

It gives you an insight into micro controller and what goes into the making of an embedded system. This duration specific program has been introduced as a result of popular demand from participants of our previous programs.We fell proud to present you with this unique internship variation which will not only change the perception of an internship but will also improve its credibility and efficiency. The course outline is as follows:Course Outline:- • Embedded System Design and Robotics: An Introduction• Microcontrollers & their Architecture• Introduction to Embedded C Programming • Interfacing of peripherals to Microcontrollers • Project Building • Introduction to concepts of RTOSThis course includes the Free Embedded system SDK to all participants.Why this course is a ‘must’?So why should a student go for STIP. We think the following summarizes the plethora of reasons why STIP is a dream for every embedded system and robotics enthusiast:• Embedded System is best understood by applying it in robotics.• Robotics and Embedded systems have a lot of scope in college projects.• The AVR series that we will be using is the most commonly employed series for micro controller at both academic and industrial level.• A participant gets to learn and apply Embedded C programming which is the main programming language for embedded systems with resource constraints. • This is the best way to get to know other robotics enthusiast around the country. • One gets to be in touch with the most talented and experienced professionals in this area of academics and interact with them.STIP benefits in a nutshell:• Exhaustive training with extensive guidance by our panel of experts.• The project based completion of curriculum with both theory classes and hands on sessions.• One can also buy development boards and other robot parts that we’ll use throughout the program.• Certification by IIT Guwahati; Techniche’ 09.• Accommodation facility for participants coming from far away locales.Free Embedded system SDK kit includes :• AVR series microcontroller Based Reserach plateform.• 1 Atmega 16 Microcontroller.• AVR series Universal Programmer.• Connecting cables.• 1 LCD display.• Robosapiens india AVR Loader v1.0 Beta software package.Certification by Techniche'09 IIT-Guwahati and Robosapiens India.Robosapiens India ties up with Techniche'09 India Institute of Technology.

Load and print file lines in processing?

I want to make a cnc/3D printer using arduino, and right now my main obstacle (besides slow shipping on the remaining motor drivers) is how to get G-code to the arduino.  I have a way to get the Gcode in a .txt file, but I need to separate every line, then send it over serial every ~2 seconds.  Is this possible with processing, and if so, how do I do it.  Note: it needs to send each line separately, and so the arduino reads it as X# Y#, not just ## ##  not sure if there's a difference, but if there is, it must be picked up that way.  Also, I have GloviePIE, (a keboard emulator), if that helps in any way.    Thanks

Processing and arduino mess up after 94 lines?

I have a pair of sketches, on arduino and processing, that sends a coordinate to the arduino from a text file.  For some reason, every time it gets to the 94th line of text, it moves one axis indefinately to the side.  No matter what text file, or if I remove the 94th line altogether, or whatever, it always does the same thing. If I start on another line, it goes 94 lines, then craps out.  What's going on?  All numbers are int, if that helps, except in the processing sketch, where theres some strings, to read the text.  -edit I've changed some integers to floats, but it still craps out at exactly line 94.
