For Aspie Members to post WWW finds

The intention for this area is for members to post URLs and brief descriptions of their unique finds on the WWW which they believe would interest people with Asperger's Syndrome. *Please include your reasons for believing the item will be of interest. *Anything from the WWW, but not from Instructables (There is a separate area for that) *And VERY rarely will any item here be about Asperger's Sydrome issues, support or resources. *Very welcome will be project items or information coming from famous Aspies, Edison, Bell etc (I know they are long gone, but their ideas will be on the WWW for ever) and also appreciated will be oddball ideas or methods for Aspies to use in Instructables. Its time now to forget other people are different from us Aspies, and begin showing how WE Aspies are different. and unique, and how some of us have ALREADY changed the world. Below, a photo of Aspies looking left right centre, inside out, upside down, for new unique knowledge, in this case, a new kind of tree. Nothing misses us!

Total Views Count - 28/04/2011

Here's the total views count for this week. I missed the last two runs since I was away on a climbing holiday. This forum topic is a printout of the results of a Perl script I run weekly. To be included in it, join this  group. The Perl script visits the profile page of each member of the group and extracts their Total Views then saves them to a file that can be opened by me in Excel. I then post the last 3 columns so everyone can compare their weekly gain with their friends. While you can easily see this data for you on the You page, this script allows people to compare their success/gain with their friends. I hand out patches as achievements when members of the group reach 50k, 100k, 250k, 500k and 1m views.

atmega32u4 vs atmega328?

How am I limited (or not limited) by using ATMega32u4 instead of ATMega328 with my Arduino? I want my sketch to perform a simple "echo" of a code it receives, does ATMega32u4 allow me to do this? Here is the datesheet of ATMega32u4:http://www.componentschip.com/details/Atmel/ATMEGA32U4.html

Trying to use relays with a electronic momentary to latching converter. Relays are tripping the latching converter?

I am trying to use this devise,   to turn on a relay attached to a positive wire from a blinker can that sends the signal to the corresponding light. I have two in parallel so I can turn on and off a LH and a RH light with a momentary switch. (can't use a regular on off switch). It works perfectly when attached to its own power supply. I am using this in on a 12 volt system that has some other relays running various things in the system. when I hook this into the system, even directly from the battery, activating the other relays turns the relays on attached to this devise. I suspect it to be noise since it works great on its own power supply. I Tried running the power lead through a resistor and capacitor to help isolate the loop but didn't work. This is stretching my understanding of electricity. What I think I am looking for is how to wire this to isolate it's power +/- circuit from the rest of the system. Otherwise suggestions on how to trouble shoot. I know it is best to add a diagram but I don't know how to make one.

Basic server management: What is best practice when uploading to /var/www/ ?

I recently installed Ubuntu server on an old PC and attached it to my home network - (only I use the network and it's wired). The issue is that (Having installed Apache web server) I am not sure how to remotely upload content. By default Apache uses /var/www/ to contain the web content that it serves. By default the write access to this folder is set to root (and no users or groups). Thus I can't work out the right way to use "scp" to copy files, because (being ubuntu) there is no actual root account. Should I just change the permissions of the folder to allow my user account write access or is this considered bad practice? Is there another or better way? Thanks in advance, Drew

Our latest project

Read this description: So I haven't posted anything in a long while, and, as well as work, one of the this was down to me and a few friends getting together and forming a YouTube channel called "MTNunlimited". It started out when we did drama at school (a subject which we no longer take) we had a tonne of ideas that we never got to use, and so we can now showcase them on the YouTube channel. Recently, our local youth theatre announced it's closure this Easter, and so we've decided to offer some kind of alternative to anyone who wanted to join in with amateur film-making. Our goal is simply to have fun. If you click onto our channel here, you'll see that we still have a long way to go before we're near the same calibre as a lot of current Internet filmmakers. This is why we have turned to the instructables community for support. We have a few ideas, but we would love to hear other people's thoughts on what we could possibly base a new video on. We'd also greatly appreciate any tips or tricks of the trade that we have not yet been enlightened on. Don’t consider this ‘spam’, as that’s very much the opposite of why I made this forum topic. I posted this to hear guidance and advice from people who have a bit more experience than us. Here's a little montage I made of what we do, in the form of a cinematic trailer, enjoy! And once again, thanks for any support offered :) - Lowney

Mobile Robo-Lamby for your Enjoyment and Pleasure

Sorry, I posted this as a response to the Contest announcement, but I guess I should have posted it as a new topic. This is my entry for the Scholarship contest.First of all, I think that this contest is a great idea, and I'm kind of thrilled that iRobot is encouraging enthusiast robotics like this.Anyway, my idea is this. I current have a (stationary) robot, which provides no other purpose than amusement. It is a stuffed animal with a servo to control its head, and motion sensors. It turns its head to "watch" people as they move around the room, creeping them out :)By utilizing an iRobot Create, I can make the robot mobile. Now, instead of sitting on the shelf where people know where it is, the robot can occasionally move around the room, finding a nice out of the way place by a wall or corner, and watch people moving around from there. :)I have some links to a previous version of my robot ("Lamby"), as well as some feature enhancements I started working on. If I were to make it mobile, I would have to use 802.11 instead of USB for connectivity back to a controlling PC (to support voice synthesis and recognition), or possibly bluetooth. The Roomba would get a full outfit in order to make it look more plush and less mechanical: http://www.myroombud.com/ .

Emergency Dash Light - Repair

Hello All - I am attempting to repair an Emergency Dash Light for a friend of mine.  It has blue LED lights it is similar to the one pictured in this link:    http://www.1topstore.com/product_info.php?language=en&currency;=USD&products;_id=11981  Initially the unit had all 4 LEDs burned out I fond a source for them and replaced same all worked fine.  After reassembling the unit I discovered in final test that the controlling chip went bad.  I think the chip is a EEPROM at least the package is a DIP-8.  The device has a function select push button and there are 4 flashing formats; wig-wag, flash twice wig-wag, all steady on; all on flash.  Any suggestions?
