It might not be apparent, but I have it on good authority the guy with the blue face pulling the Brainwagon was saying "BASTA!" when this drawing was made, probably after an evening spent with Arduinos and their fascinating I2C libraries.
Mark, K6HX, kindly offered to help us with our ArduinWoes (painful details are available in SolderSmoke Podcast #175). Mark went to the trouble of getting the display and I2C backpack that have been giving us trouble, and then went and did a lot of testing to find the origins of the problems. He has written this all up in two brilliant blog posts:
You will notice that Mark has made quite liberal use of the word "basta." As Pete has noted, in order to get the full effect of this very therapeutic Italian word, you have to make use of the correct hand gesture. Veronika nails it at about 1:28 in this video (WARNING: VERONIKA CAN BE QUITE EXPLICIT):
Thanks Mark for all your help on this. I'm not sure if we are entirely out of the woods yet, but it is reassuring that we are not the only ones screaming...
In response to popular demand, "SolderSmoke -- Global Adventures in Wireless Electronics" is now available as an e-book for Amazon's Kindle.
Here's the site:
For the print version:
For shipping from a printer in the U.S. (probably better for N. American buyers) Click here: SolderSmoke USA Version
For shipping from a printer in the UK, Spain, or the USA (probably better for UK and other European buyers)
Click here: SolderSmoke EU Version
The two versions are identical, except for a minor difference in the paper used. That's why the prices are a bit different.
