Status Update

Hello friends,

I had a bad time in the past few month but I am feeling better now. I got a new job as a software developer in a really nice company in the heart of Hamburg City - Sternschanze. I am feeling lucky!

I will now start hacking on my projects again. Things I want to do is to make Zynk - the rsync GUI, ready. I will fix the Leo-Search Firefox addon and I hopefully will have time to do some embedded stuff using my Arduino. Maybe I will work on my PHP based framework called Webjects but it needs a complete rewrite. I currently see other good projects around the web and maybe my idea of a website framework is obsolete...

Bye,
hanez... ;)

Added german Ardunio IRC channel

I have added #arduino-de to Freenode in hope there will be people from Germany meeting up there.

German language preferred but no must!

Please join to create a german IRC community for Arduino... ;)

Arduino Relays

Yesterday evening I have build a small relays for switching high voltage lines with my Arduino. It uses the "Blink" example and switches on for 10 seconds then switches off for 10 seconds. I have used this document to get my work done.

Arduino TSL230R

The next device is ready... ;) It is the TSL230R light sensor.

It prints out the Lux value every N seconds.

My code is based on this Blog entry. You could buy the sensor at Sparkfun where you will find the Datasheet too. Another place for code is here. There is provided a modified version of the link above.
