TweetTelegraph – Part 4 (Software)

Next up, the software.  The Arduino software would be broken into two parts.  The first part would be responsible for driving the sounder while the second would be responsible for reading from the key.  I started with the sounder because this was by far the easier problem. I wanted to keep the serial protocol simple. […]

TweetTelegraph – Part 3 (Telegraph Hardware)

Okay, let me level with ya.  The last two posts were written as I was doing the work described and I had every intention of doing the same for the rest of the project but that didn’t happen.  You know how it is – you get caught up in the project and the documentation suffers. […]

TweetTelegraph – Part 2 (XBee Hardware)

  • About Me

    Hi! My name is Kimberly Horne and I have absolutely nothing interesting to say. Unfortunately for you I DO have an overpowering need to tinker with technology which is explains the presence of this journal. I mostly talk about games (video and tabletop), technology, tattoos, and my pets.

    If you're an Eclipse user you may find my Eclipse category more interesting.

    Similarly, if you're an Arduino nerd then maybe my projects might be of interest.

    Since I've discovered Twitter this journal has been neglected somewhat. If you really want to stalk me your best bet is to follow me on twitter.
