Copy the upload module to your site specific modules library from the main modules directory.
It is pretty common to put Linux on a USB stick. I used DSL (Damn Small Linux). It installed quite easily. The only twist was I wanted to have the distribution on the USB stick and run windows at the same time. So I just made the DSL install to the USB stick a virtual machine. It worked just fine. I did find an open source emulator (Qemu for Windows) that you could put on the stick as well, but the download site was not working correctly so I had to use VMware.
VA is for DSL :)
I have a whole collection of routers and one of them just happened to be a model where you can replace the router software with an open source version...that will give you many more configuration options. My goal was to create a repeater out of an old modem.
After about an hour of work, the router is setup and now my network area is a little larger. Thanks to www.dd-wrt.com!
Not knowing much about C#.net, I was able to collect the data coming from my USB port from the Arduino to a datagrid. This just got me distracted in creating a little application to initialize the COM port, view the data in a orderly way and to export the data to Excel for graphing and additional analysis. Just to see if I could do it (that is the main reason why I do just about anything). Collecting information form the Arduino makes me think that I can send data (like commands) back into the Arduino to control devices and provide parameter values for various things.
You can see the output from the Arduino by invoking the serial communications. The IDE has a button to allow you to view the data. The LDR is returning values through the serial port. It makes me think that I can use a language like C#.net to view this data...I am going to give it a try.
The LDR is connected to the ARduino board and can regulate the LED.
Received the Arduino from the Maker store. Chose the Projects kit, just to get started. I was able to get the first lesson done pretty quickly with the flashing LED...language and IDE is pretty easy to understand.
