ForumRunner support for mobile devices

Have we considered installing the Forum Runner plugin on the forum to support browsing/posting via the native Forum runner app on iOS and Android?

http://www.forumrunner.net/?p=faq

It would speed up browsing on mobile devices!

Thanks,
Mark

Re: Wishlist for C for EV3

doc-helmut, have you perhaps thought of moving to leJOS for what you are trying to achieve? It supports callbacks for sensor monitoring so you never poll a sensor - you merely register a class that implements an interface and it gets called whenever a sensor changes. http://lejos.sourceforge.net/nxt...

Re: Advice on scanning colour bricks on a moving plate

Hi Matt and Howard, thanks for your replies! Matt - I've posted a few images to illustrate the current construction. I'm trying different patterns of blocks on the plate to see what works best for detection. I also have experimented with moving the plate a fixed number of tacho rotations and stoppin...

Advice on scanning colour bricks on a moving plate

Hi everyone, I'm working on a project to scan 2x4 LEGO blocks arranged on a 32x32 blue plate. The blocks are arranged in 4 parallel "tracks" and I have 4 static LEGO colour sensors mounted pointing perpendicularly down over each track (i.e. looking at the studded top of each brick undernea...

Re: Setting up DI Wifi Sensor --Problems

Hi John, I downloaded the firmware file you linked to and used the MCRS485ReadEx function and the sample code you posted does again seem to work fine. The August 8th firmware works ok talking to the DiWifi. I also verified that a new device was assigned a DHCP address on my router, which I assume is...

Re: Setting up DI Wifi Sensor --Problems

I just ran the below code and get a consistent "OK" response from the Wifi sesor. I am using a DI Wifi sensor, that has been factory-reset and should resemble what comes out of the box. For NXC, I am using the latest firmware, and I am using Bricx Command center Version 3.3 (Build 3.3.8.1...

Re: Setting up DI Wifi Sensor --Problems

Mark, That looks great. I wish my device would show something other than zeros at the bottom. Can you do me another favor and try changing the #define at the start of the diwifi.h header file from 0 to 1? This will test my new RS485ReadEx function that you prodded me into adding to the enhanced NBC...

Re: Setting up DI Wifi Sensor --Problems

My non-functional NXC code is attached. I think it is written "correctly" and should work but it does not. Mark, could you try working with my code to see if it works with your device? I should say, actually, that my diwifi.h file is not 100% complete and "correct". I haven't fi...

Re: Setting up DI Wifi Sensor --Problems

Hi guys, Wow everyone has been really busy looking into this issue! I'll take John's code and test it out, and share some more of my code. I wonder if it will still work! It is bizarre that my code and device worked, but that no-one can get their's to work. I did see that happen and had to do the Ro...

Re: Setting up DI Wifi Sensor --Problems

Could you not use flow control to prevent the NXTBee from being so chatty? John from DI and I discussed that but I never tested it and I don't know if he did/ - Xander Xander, I tried that using software-flow-control on the DiWifi but never got it to work reliably. I tried every combination of hw/s...
