You know, I really don't appreciate having links posted here that end up having sex ads coming up on my work computer. I really wouldn't want it on my home computer either but the management here takes an extremely dim view of this sort of thing. I have no idea if you can help this or not. Maybe just consider this a warning to other potential visitors to the above site. You can count on one thing, I won't be going to any damn sites that have "tripod" in the name.

Sex ads on Lycos? Tripod(Lycos) looks at your cookies on your harddrive and displays relevant ads specific to you. They're largest site host in the world.

I go there I get AVR ads. Who's been using your computer at work? You should install Service Pack II and block those pop-ups.

Sex ads, eh? Well now the site will get swamped for sure!

I just checked the site,

I got one ad for Atmel AVRs from DigiKey and another ad for AVR development tools from Arrowhead.com.

No sex ads, darn. I thought that would boost popularity of site a bit.

This looks like an excellent website RetroDan, just what a beginner like me needs. Unfortunately I couldn't find any sex-ads :wink:

I owe you (the OP) an apology. After you mentioned it, I remembered where this jackass I work with typed "porno" into Google and hit Enter while I was away from my computer. That is probably how I ended up with the sex ad. I panicked when I saw this gay porn ad and got angry. I am very sorry. I will also email our IT department and ask for whatever it takes to stop pop-up ads. I was (obviously mistakenly) under the impression that they (the IT depart.) would already have everyone in the company protected against this sort of thing. I also apologize for going off topic.

Regards,
Steve

To avoid more OT posts here, I've started a related thread over in the off-topic forum: https://www.avrfreaks.net/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&p=218931#218931.

Looks like a handy reference - can save some time that would otherwise be spent clicking through directories toward the applicaton notes. I hope you site grows in content so it will be even more useful.

No apology necessary. I'm just glad you sorted the problem out. I must say that it sort of threw me for a loop at first.

Thanks for the postive feed-back. I started with the Appnotes, but there's more than just that there now. BTW - I'm open to suggestions.

OK Dan,

You told everyone about your site(s). This site is not for promotion of YOUR sites, so ask for suggestions there.

Nice site Dan, some good code segments. I like assembly programming, but just I can't help using C for the ease of use and productivity.

No kidding Ed, sometime ASM programming can be so tedious.

Had a quick look...the site needs a going over with a spell checker...also some of the routines have bugs in them like the AVR410...don't know about the rest :-)

You wouldn't happen to know where to find bug fixes for those files eh?

I posted a "working" AVR410 code, if I well remember, on the main forum a few years ago. From memory the main problem was that the program assumes that the 1s and 0s are the same width whilst all the remotes I had were sending 1s with shorter width (to save battery power??)

The AVR910 (programmer) is very old. There is a new version 3.3 which I posted on the project forum. There are versions around which seem to be better than my version (from Klaus Leidnger), so you may want to make them available also.

Some of the code which are Atmel's examples of EEPROM programming do not take into account the fact that the interrupts need to be turnd off at certain points in the programming cycle. While the code example will work in the demo version, it is likely to fail in a real application where interrupts are used. (not your fault I guess)

There are probably lots more things to point out but I dont' have all the answers (or any :-) ). I'm sure this project you have undertaken will keep you out of mischief in your retirement years :-)

Finally it's nice to know that there is at least another person in this world that like me cannot come to rerms with C and prefers assembler...even though you have had a very ROCKY start in the AVR world. I hope it will all settle down. :wink:

Thanks John. I'm right in the middle of uploading a whack of ASM routines to the site, but when I'm done, I'll go looking for your updated bugfix for that AppNote.

And also thanks for pointing-out those embarassing spelling mistakes and typos on the site also.

Someone has also reported that my source code to one bootloader there has a problem with it.

If you or anyone else would like to contribute an ASM routine, or report such problems in the future, please leave it in a posting in the "AVR ASM PROGRAMMING" Forum at: http://avr.x.am

Thanks.
