Thanks, I have been looking for a new iron and this looks like it might fit. Also a big fan of flux pens. I like the outakes ;-) Pretty much like every video I every do.

Discussion  - 
 
I love Eric's live shows but it can be a little late for some people, it usually finishes at 1am for me in the UK. Obviously I am a sleep rebel and I am happy to be a zombie the next day at work. But, as the channel gets larger and with no boundary on visitor time zones, the audience is getting more diverse.   

Ok, so a question.

Are they any options people can think of for more live community interaction? Or can you think of any methods to pull the live experience (including comments and conversations) out and make it available for people at other times?

+David Watts I think so, maybe we can set some times as 'happy hours' where people join to check if there is something to discuss.

I want to get a new audio recorder, my Marantz PMD660 is just too big. Has anyone got opinions on the Zoom H1 or the Tascam DR-05?

+David Bates Thanks, I decided to go for the Zoom H1. I will be happy to get a year or two of weekend use out of it. I found it for £65 so that made the decision a lot easier.

Hey All,

I wanted to share what I have done with the ESP8266, most of it is old hat but I did manage to make connecting to networks on the fly possible without reprogramming. I haven't seen that with anyone's projects before but it seems like it should be standard.

The code isn't perfect and it certainly isn't a library yet, I am not sure it ever will be. But, it is all there for you to use and improve. I just released a version with a display so it can be stand alone.

https://github.com/mrdavidjwatts/esp8266Module 

Does anyone want to make be a nice box to put this thing in? ;-)

Great job mate, I enjoyed the more detailed video. Are there any commercial units you can test the readings against? Skulled!

Anyone know a good way to receive about 300 bytes across serial and save it into a char array? I can only seem to get 64 characters (the serial buffer size). I am sure someone must have done it before.

Thanks +Peter Scargill +Hari Wiguna +james wolf it seems I was doing it right all along, well my serial code at least. A long forgotten delay left in the loop was causing the buffer to overrun or otherwise misbehave. All sorted now.

I was developing some ESP8266 related code for finding Wifi networks.

This is a little controversial in this communit,y but this is the new Arduino Zero Pro from Arduino SRL. The hardware is the same as the Zero being released soon by Arduino LLC.

I view this board as a clone for now and since I own a lot of clones, I have no problem with it. I just wish all the trademarks would get sorted out to save confusion. I am team neither.

+James A. Langbridge The current IDE from Arduino.org doesn't support everything yet and lots or libraries won't have support for the chip yet. It took a long time for Due support on lots of libraries, which I is why I opted for a simple LED base demo. I look forward to the Arduino.cc version of the software.
