Arduino is a children's toy. Much as I hesitate to provide advice to improving Mobile GoatchwitzTM, I will recommend something like a Horner PLC, which is robust and purpose built for applications such as these. The base model is inexpensive (although not $10) and the software is free. They come with a built-in HMI so you can fiddle with the settings to your hearts desire if you set it up correctly.
Oh brother.

Link? For purchasing this device?

Seriously? Google "Horner PLC". Should take 2 seconds.


Something like this:

I'm also switching my micro controller over to Arduino from basic stamp, mainly because I accidentally yanked the programming cable out of my basic stamp and so I can't program it anymore. And I can get Arduinos for only $10 now whereas the basic stamp boards were $40.
That couldn't possibly have taken more than a day. Someone competent could do it in under an hour.
Yeah, well I'm NOT competent with Arduinos ... yet.  Never messed with them before.  Spent the longest time getting nowhere simply bc I had the guts of of my code in the void() loop instead of in the setup() loop.  Now the program runs perfectly with LEDs, but when I go live with my mosfet and power relay which runs the winch, the damn regulator blows!  Fried two boards that way!  The Basic stamp is wired exactly the same way wrt to mosfet and power relay and has no problem.  :headbangonbrickwall:

don't lose faith. piss tape is real and strong and it will be known to all someday.

Yes, be patient, friends. Big news doesn't drop until mid to late afternoon or well into the evening. Recently it's all been after 5 pm, sometimes later in the night.
Please please please let it be the piss tape. It'd almost make it all worthwhile.

Politics and Current Events / Re: Sessions
Lobbyist for Russian interests says he attended dinners hosted by Sessions

Quote
An American lobbyist for Russian interests who helped craft an important foreign policy speech for Donald Trump has confirmed that he attended two dinners hosted by Jeff Sessions during the 2016 campaign, apparently contradicting the attorney general's sworn testimony given this week.

That is all I have to say on this topic.

I will say that in Vancouver BC, there is a whacked culture of driving like complete idiots.
You're not supposed to point that out. It's considered racist.
they run public service announcements on tv begging people to stop running over pedestrians.
Ok well that's a specific neighborhood where you have to dodge the .... altered ... pedestrians randomly lurching into the street. You're also not supposed to be pointing that out for cultural sensitivity reasons.

The situation is a bit extreme, but it's paid for by insane insurance rates. I do my bit by suing everyone who hits me when I'm on my bicycle. It's quite lucrative.

My husband is in the US for another day or two, could you guys not start a civil war until Saturday earliest, tks.
One American perspective is that we've always been in an internal war amongst our own peoples. Your hubby is affiliated with my side, right?
I dunno, he thinks Americans in general, though often good people, are a little unhinged and overly excitable (my American relatives don't help in dispelling that perception), but he's almost as much of a socialist as I am.
and some, I assume, are good people
He's worked for a lot of American companies and with a lot of Americans. Y'all are a little unhinged in his experience.

But there are no cultural differences between Canadians and Americans I'm told.

I've often been told that Australian and Canadian cultures are very similar. Being both, I have to say that while superficially they might appear to be similar, in general  :no:

I suspect it might be the same between Canadians and Americans.

So Dave,
Have you clicked that last onezoom link yet? Here it is again: surprise for Dave

Or have you been overwhelmed by baby goats and the realization that the nested hierarchies found in biological systems (and not in human manufactured ones) strongly suggest common descent, and decided to bail from the thread permanently?

It's a shame since you promised to 'school' us on nested hierarchies. Not only did you never quite get around to this schooling, you still seem to have a very distorted understanding of the concept. Largely due to the reliance on Saint Denton who fucked up his description which you have hung your understanding on.

Politics and Current Events / Re: Qatar
So I just had a really horrible thought:

Iran and Saudi Arabia, already fighting proxy wars in Yemen and Syria, Saudis (and allies) isolate Qatar, Turkey jumps in on the side of Qatar, looking increasingly like a buildup to a shooting war between Iran and SA, which will necessarily involve the rest of the ME, and by association Russia and the US/Europe...WWIII?

onezoom has a cool feature that lets you fly to a 'destination'. If you click on the link, Dave, you might find a nice surprise waiting for you.
That site crashes my browser (Safari on a MacBook Pro) every time I've tried to go there. :(
I have pretty much given up on Apple products for this and other reasons. This being jest the last in a stream of irritations. My Android phone does a better job on nearly every webpage than that shit Safari running on any mac or idevice.

Try to actually understand for a second, Dave. Forget frantically googling for 'nuggets' that you think will support your stupidity.

Explore the onezoom tree of life site.

Begin to get a feel for the richness of the world that you're missing out on.

Or remain a dumbass PRATT regurgitator. Your choice.
"Feel the richness"

Yeah.

I felt the same kind of richness when I watched Disney's latest "Cinderella" movie ... fantasy IS enriching ... I'll grant you that!
So you're going with:

Vast conspiracy involving multiple generations of scientists starting with Linnaeus (or even earlier?) to sell the world on the eeeevils of Darwinism.

Dave has never really figured out that you don't do science like you 'do' scripture.

In xian circles, one need only to quote the chapter and verse, and it brings with it full weight to whatever point you are trying to make. For example, explaining to a pastor why using a non-temple prostitute is not fornication, or whatever.

Which is why he thinks it's very impressive to merely mention the names Carmeli and Hartnett.
15
Fredbear is an idiot.  He has no clue what I think about astronomy.  In fact, he doesn't have much of a clue about much of anything  that I'm aware of.

My most recent focus on astronomy has been on the writings of Carmeli and Hartnett.

I don't know much about gravity waves or black holes, but I'm pretty sure there is no such thing as "dark matter" or "dark energy."
Quick question, Dave:

How long does it take light from the M31 Andromeda galaxy to get to Earth?

Most likely Bluffy will claim the finding is a fraud,
Who gives a fuck?

Seriously.  Why do you care?
Why do you care if he cares?

Hey Dave,

Was my question too complicated for you?

I like it!
There were some questions in there, Dave. Is it too much trouble to read and respond to them?
18
Since I almost never read Dave, is it because he doesn't think there are black holes?  Gravity waves?  What is the conflict here?
Astronomy is pretty off-limits to Dave since his worldview contends that the entire universe is ~6000 years old.

Observing events in distant galaxies is simply not possible under his paradigm. I don't think black holes can exist for Dave.

Politics and Current Events / Re: Trumpocalypse
Trump incompetence

Quote
In recent days, there have been a number of press reports suggesting that President Trump is unable to absorb essential information needed to do his job. His attention span is too short, he won't read anything longer than a page, and must be bribed with flattery to keep his mind focused. Writing in the New York Times on 18 May, Peter Baker asked those working at foreign embassies in Washington what they have learned from their interactions with Trump.

"Keep it short - no 30-minute monologue for a 30-second attention span. Do not assume he knows the history of the country or its major points of contention. Compliment him on his Electoral College victory. Contrast him favorably with Barack Obama. Do not get hung up on whatever was said during the campaign. Stay in regular touch. Do not go in with a shopping list but bring some sort of deal he can call a victory."

Quote
While many of those holding such an opinion undoubtedly are liberals and Democrats, even some conservatives feel the same way. Erick Erickson, a founder of the popular Republican website RedState published an op-ed article on May 19 containing this remarkable paragraph: "The president exudes incompetence and instability. Divulging classified information to the Russians through bragging; undermining his staff's defense of his conduct through inane tweets; even reportedly asking the FBI director to suspend an investigation of a former adviser -- all these strike me not so much as malicious but as the ignorant actions of an overwhelmed man.

Properly managing cattle INCREASES biological diversity.

How. The fuck. Would you know, dipshit?

You have repeatedly denigrated all suggestions to learn about what lives on your property.

You really are a consummate artiste of stupid, did you know that?

Well, it's interesting how the word has changed meaning.  It used to mean "need", and was mostly intransitive-ish.  Now it means desire.

Not that there's anything wrong with desire per se, but we desire so much ephemera, and apparently "wealth creation" depends on fostering such desires.

have you tried counting the nested layers down to Dutch elm disease?
23
I've clicked on it many times and I have seen the same thing every time.  Is there something new there that I should notice?
Well, yes. If you continue to say the things that you have said recently. Have you investigated the monotreme branch, and how it diverges from the mammalian branch? There's a lesson in there that you could use to look a lot less stupid.
24
I already told you I don't know.  But I'm quite sure that if we found one, the Darwin Magicians would find a way to make it support their theory.  They always do!
It's clear from this that you haven't made the tiny effort to click on the onezoom link I have posted what? 6 times now?

Your self-imposed ignorance should be an embassasment to you, Dave.
25
But, but, why don't humans have feathers? They certainly could, especially if designed purposely, but they don't.  Why is that?  You could really show off all your peacocking, Dave!

And while you are at it, notice all bovines and equines, and swine don't have feathers either.  It's almost weird!
So ... animals without feathers ... don't have feathers?

Hmm ...

Where are you headed with this?
You almost had it for a second. Animals with feathers don't suckle their young. We have an explanation. You do not. The answer scares you shitless, apparently.
