After a good kangaroo feed you be able to do "island skipping" and you'll be back home in no time, not necessaily "in a single bounce". :?

And, what happens when I run out of islands? I'll need quite a bit of back pressure to skip all the way across the big drink!

I suppose I could always pack a "Brown Bag " lunch on the return trip to keep the skip going...

OK Carl.

I'll send you some of our local fauna. PM me your postal address and I'll go out this afternoon and catch you one.

Well, you can send them to JS... Maybe he can feed them some of that Kangaroo roast (or what ever that was) and they will just skip right on over here under their own power... It'll probably be a whole lot cheaper! :lol:

*Test post*

Edit: Okay, I think I finally got this file to upload correctly, if anyone still has trouble let me know and I'll send it to you directly.

Place the internal jumper on pins 2 & 3

Using AVR OSP2:
Under the CONFIGURATION tab:
Select OSPII Protocol
COM Port you're using
115,200 Baud Rate

Under the PROGRAM Tab:
Click Auto Detect - Should show as ATMEGA48
Enter the path along with the file name AVRFOB48.hex
Click Erase or the Erase check box
Click Program
Remove the jumper
Cycle power
Done!

I'm working on a new PC Side application that will integrate into the STK500 protocol and will allow more flexibility and customizing of the flash memory. Such as the ability to Read and Write files to the flash explorer style.

Right now jumping pins 1 & 2 only gives you AVR910 ISP functionality. This mode does not work with the stand alone functionality! You must have all jumpers removed for STK500 mode and Stand Alone operation.

Mine works like a charm after a few false starts of my own making. Mike was extremely helpful and patient in walking me through my blunders. I've asked him to post more explicit instructions, but I think this is a very nice programmer and, as smiley says, cute as a puppy.

We call them simply "walkers" here, but no, I didn't need one for this endeavor. What generally helps most when I'm needing assistance is a strip of duct tape placed strategically across my mouth.

That helps at other times, too. I look at my teenaged daughter, who loves to rant about almost anything that crosses her mind, and think "hmmm.... wonder where she got that?" Unfortunately I can't blame her mother.

OK, weekend and Monday holiday gone, two packages jumped into the mail a little while ago, headed for Australia. Don't worry about reimbursing the postage - save it for mailing Carl a kangaroo.

Send him one of those Australian pipe snakes instead. Don't even need to stuff it - just let it dry out a bit.

I agree with Mr. Baird, send the pipe snake, easier to get through customs, and if it came from a sewer pipe the look on the dogs face should be priceless!!

I think Carl's address is in the box I mailed you today.

I just looked you up on google earth. What's that big building slightly north of you - the one west of what looks like a shopping center? (this thread's taken so many turns I don't mind a little more OT)

I've had deer, coyotes, possums, skunks, raccoons, rabbits, quail, snakes, and once some sort of bobcat or some such wander into the yard, but never anything as cute as these oversized rodents. I'm sure they're not so cute if you're trying to grow something you consider valuable and they consider tasty.

John, from google it looks like all your neighbors have swimming pools. Why don't the trees just grab a drink there? :)

Clorine maybe?? In fact it's the tree of the guy behind me (R/H, only pool near me) that is the suspect :(

edit Must be a pretty old satellite shot, the trees in front of my place were ripped out about 6 months ago. It seems that the shot was taken on Wednesday, all the garbage bins seem to be out :lol:

Ahh Chuck,

You have too much time on your hands!

OK, that big building is the Blackburn High School. Did you notice the pile of leaves on our clay tennis court? I think they need clearing "real soon now".

And by the way, the kangaroo is not a rodent. It is a marsupial.

OK if Carl's address is in the box, consider it done.

Cheers,

ps apologies to everyone for going way, way off topic.

My bad. :oops: I knew that, with their cute little pocket pals. Late night brain fart - looking at too many satellite photos.

Sorry to get the thread police all excited. Sure, we need another programmer. Got mine, and I'm very happy. Until someone makes another one, and then I'll need one of those, too.

No they were suppose to go 1st class, this is a bit disturbing. I'll check with them tomorrow to see if I can find out anything. Of course this seems as good an excuse as any to make trip to Australia, always wanted to visit :)

OK it's 8:05pm and I'm stuck!!!

I'm trying to use the FOB however when I plug it in it comes up as com20.

My com ports used are:

Com1-4 real ports (can't live without them)
Com 5-15 Various Bluetooth ports used by my Bluetooth module. So cannot be changed???
Coms 16-19??? Not showing but I suspect various FTDI com ports. Will not show untill plugged in.

Studio only wants com ports 1-4 and AVROSPII can only go to port 16. :(

Suggestions please??

Going off to babysit and watch telly, enough for the day for a "pop"...

Hi John,

I doubt your bluetooth really needs all those ports :)

With your bluetooth plugged in I would determine which port it's actually using, probably in the teens from the sounds of it. Then plug in the AVRFOB and reassign it to the lowest port that you isn't really in use. It will always use that port after that unless you specifically change it. This is assuming you are running WIN XP?

Bluetooth is always plugged in. The number of ports used depend on what it is communicating with. But somehow they are all reserved for it.

It can access up to about 13 devices including modems, a few serial port, mobile, lan and what not.

I guess I could unistall the Bluetooth driver, plug in a few FTDI devices and then reinstall Bluetooth so that it will use higher port numbers. I would still like the Bluetooth serial ports to be lowish so that they will work with terminal programs.

Isn't Studio supposed to be able to communicate with more than just 4 serial ports now??

I show COM 1 - 9 as options in AVR Studio here. I have the latest beta version installed.

I've never really used Bluetooth so I wouldn't feel comfortable trying to give you any advice there :| From your description I guess it can run more than one device simultaneously?

The version of OSPII I'm working on now will enumerate any available ports, but still give you the option of manually entering a port just in case. If you need or want an early copy let me know?
