Arduino coding help! Buttons, switches, and servos are not agreeing.

Hi my name is Nash and I've been playing with Arduino Duemilanove for about a year and just touching a little bit of everything. Right now I'm have the Arduino powering basically a pan/tilt device that rotates horizontally 360 degrees and vertically 90 degrees. Using a specific code containing one button, I can have the Arduino run a sequence of the two servos. I would like to add a second button and have a switch to choose "modes." If the switch is OFF, then pushing one button will run the sequence- simple enough. When the switch is ON, I would like the same button as before as well as an additional button control rotation of the horizontal servo. I have the code using only one button and no switch to run the sequence and the device runs flawlessly. Once I add the "switching" part to the code, the servos freak out and fidget constantly without a positive result. I am fairly new to the servo library in Arduino and am open to any kind of instruction or changes to my code below. Thanks for your help! #include Servo servo; //we think this will make the Cont-Rot servo to sit still Servo iservo; //set second servo #define button 3 //attaches button to pin 3 int ibutton = 0; //ibutton is used to store state of input #define button2 2 //second button attached to pin 2 int qbutton = 0; //qbutton stores input #define button7 7 //switch connected to pin 7 int sbutton = 0; //switch stores input void setup() {   servo.attach(5); //attaches servo to pin 5   iservo.attach(6); //attaches second servo to pin 6   pinMode(button, INPUT); //sets button as input   pinMode(button2, INPUT); //sets button2 as input   pinMode(button7, INPUT); //sets switch as input } void loop() {   ibutton = digitalRead(button); //reads state of button   qbutton = digitalRead(button2); //reads state of second button   Switch = digitalRead(button7); //reads state of switch   if (Switch == LOW) { //if switch is off   if (ibutton == HIGH) { //and ibutton is pressed     iservo.write(0); //run this servo sequence     servo.write(100);     delay(2000);     iservo.write(0);     servo.write(80);     delay(4000);     iservo.write(0);     servo.write(100);     delay(2000);   }   if (ibutton == LOW) { //ibutton is not pressed     servo.write(90); //do nothing     iservo.write(50);   } }   if (Switch == HIGH) { //switch is on     if ((ibutton == HIGH) && (qbutton == LOW)) { //ibutton is pressed and qbutton is not       servo.write(80); //servo spin counter-clockwise     }     if ((ibutton == LOW) && (qbutton == HIGH)) { //ibutton is not pressed and qbutton is       servo.write(100); //servo spin clockwise     }     if ((ibutton == LOW) && (qbutton == LOW)) { //neither button is pressed       servo.write(90); //do nothing     }   } }

Green Design Thrives on Cooperation and Hugs

While there are LEED standards for architecture that are often brought into consideration, there isn't much in terms of product design. Many companies want the design for their widget to be done and quickly move on to production. In an effort to fight the good fight and get sustainable ideas in from the beginning, an agreement called the Designer's Accord has been established among designers.Signers to the Designer's Accord agree to initiate dialogues about sustainability and carbon footprints with the companies who hire them. They also agree to educate their own staff about the importance of materials and design in production.One of the big kickers here is that the signers also agree to share what they've learned about sustainable design with each other. While avoiding disclosing any secrets about the companies they work for, they plan on building a global knowledge base so that we can all be a bit greener a bit faster. It's a noble concept and thousands from prominent firms and small companies have signed up. Time will tell if all of this will truly help out, but for now the project looks to be in the big group hug phase with many promises of glorious things to come.Hopefully, they will.

I am a huge fan of Bleach, which refers to the Zanpakuto as being spirit beings, and I was reading a forum post somewhere that swords have personalities outside of their wielder's skill and the naming of a sword was based on the sword's personality. So, from this, I have chosen to believe that swords have souls and that one can communicate with their sword. So does anyone agree?

Beware Obrary

I was approached this week by a member of staff at Obrary, asking me if I would let them share one of my projects. So far, so good; I gave permission, as long as they agreed to abide by the license I use to publish my projects; BY-NC-SA.  This is the default licence for Instructables, and allows others to share your work as long as they quote the source, share their work under the same licence, and do not profit commercially from the project. Be aware that, if Obrary share your projects, they will share them under the licence of BY-CC-SA, allowing other people to profit from your work. When I discovered this, I agreed, as long as I got to share in the income being generated by my work. Obrary went quiet. If you want to share your projects through Obrary, that's up to you (a quick search shows that at least one Instrucabler has allowed their work to be shared), but you need to remember that their business model involves monetising your work, without any of the income coming to you. They profit, you lose out. You have been warned.

Reverse Global Warming the DIRTY way

1)  We are put carbon into the air by burning fossil fuels.   What are fossil fuels?  Plants that were buried eons ago.   How can we reverse the trend?  By burying plant matter, thus sequestering CO2 from the air. Fortunately, there is a convenient way to do so. Put lawn waste and paper in a landfill.  Paper is mostly made from tree farm trees. They'll replant to grow more. New trees absorb CO2 from air.       a)  Bury paper. Don't recycle it.    b)  Bury lawn waste, don't mulch or compost. 2) Since people do burn stuff to keep warm, travel, and do stuff in general, is there a way to do this without as much effect on climate? Yes. Global COOLing happens when particulates (smoke) reflect some sunlight.   So the laudable efforts to produce cleaner emissions from cars, powerplants, etc, also prevents the effect of global cooling.   Ironic that  a filthy smoke belching 1800s smokestack which lead to respiratory problems, etc, would also put out particulates that block some sunlight.      a)  make smoke, not clean exhaust. I welcome responses whether you agree or disagree.  To be perfectly honest, I'm not sure if I agree myself ! Just putting it out there.
