Help me!!

Https:// In this Control circuit schematic They explained about sensor inputs (the sensor inputs are connected to the analog inputs on the Arduino board ( A0, A1, A2, A3 ). The input voltages on these pins are converted into a 10 bit integer value such that the range between 0V and 5V and translated into a value between 0 and 1023 respectively. The ideal connector thus contains 3 inputs per sensor ( 5V, GND, A ) resulting in 12 connection points.) I need clear explanation about this and what type of sensors they using and how they connected ?? Thanks For ur help :) :)

Hello,I'm Marcin from Greece. I saw yesterday a video about a interactive speaker cloud,but is too expensive for me.I started search about how to build one and I saw Arduino think. (I don't have any experience about it but with instructions I believe I can make it for my nephews) That is my project: I think to use led lights and speakers 2.1. I want to sync the woofer with a specific led strips that gonna make a bright white/light blue light when a loud lighting strike hits and then the following sounds that happens at lower volume to light up the others leds,and some times some random lightening lights. All of those thinks to sync with a sound effect of raining and storm that I will download from YouTube and can play for 1 hour and more. Maybe inwill use ceiling power supply so please someone tell me if that is possible to me to make it and how much gonna cost and if anyone can guide me about what I will need and the commands.Please if anyone can,really I want to make it for the kids because they love it when is raining and hear strikes.Love from Greece.SORRY FOR MY ENGLISH.

I have figured out how to make an inbox setup, I just need help. I am not asking for someone to give me the whole answer, but rather help me figure out what the problem is. This isn't the program itself (obviously), just a section Please take a look:if %command% EQU 5 (chdir C:\chdir Documents and Settingschdir All Userschdir Desktopchdir %global.username%IF EXIST Mail.txt (type %global.username%echo You have mail!pause > nulset command=goto AccountPanel) ELSE (echo No new messages.pause > nulset command=goto AccountPanel)For some reason, I can only get it to say "You have no new messages" or "You have mail!" rather than the right one for the situation. Now, It keeps appearing and disapearing in a window whenever I select the number five. All users have the same exact Account Panel, so %global.username% just represents the user that is currently logged on using set globals. I am kindly asking for help, not for someone to do it for me. I know that batch isn't a real scripting language, but it is fun to work with, just... confusing. I am sure I have all of the directories correct. Please help!
