    Re: User Id Location ?

    True, I suspect the final software will be fine most of the time - but the world is full of compromises. My wonderful wife 'suggests' and I compromise.

    Agreed George - I was commenting with C versus PDS in mind.

    Wouldn't an eedata solution be simpler George? Or have I misunderstood your suggestion? Easily done when I first face the world in the morning.

    Re: What is the fuss about arduino

    Yves, I've discovered over the years that it's not always the best product that becomes popular, for example Beta (the best solution) versus VHS (the better promoted solution).

    George, was that just P24? Whoops, didn't check before pen to paper or fingers to keyboard.

    Hmm, maybe not.
    I just checked my 16F1827 data sheet and it can read User_ID and has IDLOC0. You might...

    Re: User Id Location ?

    George/John, the reason I suggested an eedata option was because not all devices can read the UserID. My largest stocks of 14 bit chips are 16F1827 and 16f628 so I tend to use them for appropriate...

    Re: Grafic-SSD1306 OLED a new version

    I would be happy to do as you ask Johan.
    Even your post in the forum would be fine to get me started. The article doesn't need to be long or complicated.

    Robert, did you do a full install of 3.6.02 first before the patch was applied. It may be that the info file may be at fault. On my phone at present so it's a bit hard to do links.
