Yesterday when Dan and i were at radio shack shopping for his new phone, i picked up a BASIC stamp kit. It's kind of like an embedded system that you program. So far i've made two things. The second i just finished, it's a binary count down. Using six leds as 0=off and 1=on it can count up to 64. It connects to the computer through a serial cable. After it's programmed, you can disconnect it and take it anywhere with the 9volt attached. The programming language that the stamp uses is similar to QBasic (now all those years programming in middle school aren't wasted!). The kit came with a decimal led block too (like a calculator has). I was thinking of adding that to the binary counter, making it able to count to 640 (which is a bit more usable).

Stamp Board (close to actual size)

Stamp (enlarged. This fits into the black socket on the Stamp Board)

Hey dan, since you have internet access, my guess is that it was you who created the user edward on natalie?

Both accounts are disabled. Until you tell me it was you, that is.
Danwarraven on August 1st, 2004 04:20 am (UTC)

Danwarraven on August 2nd, 2004 01:36 am (UTC)

Carnestibman on August 1st, 2004 03:30 am (UTC)
Oh yea, do you have a camera i can use?
Danwarraven on August 1st, 2004 04:21 am (UTC)
umm.. no.. one is in my car and is busted still. and the other one is here in germany and is now busted as well... god hates me.

Woah, that is pretty cool...i wonder if we can somehow institute it in our catapult/pingpong table? Hmm... ;-)

Anyway, it sounds like you have been pretty busy so that is always a plus. Concerts and theme parks, wahoo! My summer is been much more mundane but I guess it was a good break.

hey bitch, (hello in army slang)
what's going on at home? i want to know. plus i need good stuff to read, no one else is really updating their journal. how's the sektorseven thing going? what about cityofminds? anything new on the job front? how's the house? or the rat? is my dad back yet? make anything cool with your stamping thingy?

i told brent it would be cool if he swung by the house and crashed there. as long as you guys don't trash the house in an outrageous party.

ttyl, i'll keep posting stuff online. as long as i can access the internet.

i added another user to natalie... so don't freak!
Carnestibman on August 5th, 2004 04:04 am (UTC)
lol.. don't worry. It's just when an IP i don't know uses your account to create another account and adds themselves to wheel, i tend to think that suspicious.
Danwarraven on August 5th, 2004 07:25 am (UTC)
true, true. just letting you know, so you weren't in the dark

Whatcha doing??
Hi Sean, haven't heard from you in a while. Where you at? send me an email???? Need money?? (just kidding) LOL
Danwarraven on August 8th, 2004 02:06 pm (UTC)
hello? are you still alive? haven't updated your journal since i left, was wondering if everything was ok. you're not on AIM ever either.. the house better still be there.
Carnestibman on August 9th, 2004 02:03 pm (UTC)
lol, i'm never on aim! And i don't post that often either. That should be a GOOD sign. In fact, i've been taking very good care of the house. Mowing, cleaning cat boxes, feeding animals, grocery shopping (there's a story behind that one), and vacuuming/cleaning stuff. Helping neighbor's find their lost dog. Besides, i picked Mark up from the Airport yesterday morning... and he's taking me to Hooters!

Oh, and did you know downtown E-town has a coffee shop now? With LIVE jazz music (good music at that).
