    Hi to you to anon22.

    I just got the leech labeling from blaggard, who I'll reply to in the thread that awarded it, so I thought I better follow every step in my welcome message, which admittedly I didn't do to start with. Blimey, you must get a lot of 'give me' on here. Contrary to the label, I didn't want stuff given to me on a plate, just a 'yes, what you're asking can be done without bricking your device would have sufficed.

    Oh well, on to a bit about me. I am an electronics engineer by qualification, specialising in micro-electronics and software. That was 25 years ago though, so the electronics fault finding side is pretty much not used these days as everything is surface mounted and micro-footprinted, thus putting a soldering iron any where near it is a waste of time. The software side of what I did is also very outdated, not much call for Pascal these days, although the C and C++ is still useful sometimes. I like to mess about with website building, done one for the wife and am pondering exactly what to put on my next one. I'm not really a coder for websites though, more a CMS user in the form of Joomla and only know what I know through trying things out. That's no bad thing though, good way to learn.

    Recently been messing around with Arduino's, specifically for reading electronic panel meter data (meters used on large electrical switchboards). aA lot of the stuff where I work uses the older (but robust) Modbus standard. Got the Arduino to act as a Modbus Master to gather all the meter variables ready for pushing onto a SCADA system if need be. Works well.

    The switchboard side of stuff is predominantly what I get involved with now, and teh electrical feeds to them. Funny, I started off in the TTL and CMOS world and now I'm in the power distribution world at 11 & 33 kV as a CE.

    Well that's me. Back to posting replies to those kind enough to answer me, and blaggard. Wonder if just my reply will get me flamed for unintentionally up'ing my post count!! Apologies in advance but do please advise if I have broken any more rules.

    he kinda lost it by not simply following the rules. He thought 10 quick 1 worded threads would get him into the promised land.


    Welcome to Digital Forums. You had a shaky start but once you get a few post under your belt you will do fine
