Slur, I am not willing to retire the fist from the pool of potential symbols for a new project, anymore than I would retire the star, or the triangle or the square or...

Sorry, I do not see anything so scary in a fist holding a lightning bolt that merits dragging this thread into such a political (read "really crappy") area. This is what I though of

I am getting greedy about the software. Sure the basic one works great, but I just finished reworking DCB's isr stuff and little details for the new controller, and it finally compiled! ya! Now I really really really really really....

really really really...

really need a working laptop. I have one that someone gave me that won't turn on, and I can't figure out what is wrong with it. It's an older one, but still. dang it! I'm going to go unbolt that stupid thing, probably get shocked, reprogram it, and re-attach it. If I have time. I might not.

Here's a picture of the control section being tested on the oscilloscope. I had a really hard time, until that giraffe helped me find a mistake in the software:

Although optically isolated, the signal gets through nice and fast! ya! This is the mosfet driver output (well, so was the above picture):


Semi-black power. Wife's idea. (also with scandinavian power and italian and Irish power, and finnish, which technically isn't scandinavian):

The new fancy software doesn't work. I am real mad right now. Let the debugging begin. Actually, maybe later.

OK, the program for the first time, with DCB's truly awesome re-organization of the ISRs, is working! I had to get rid of that stupid:

cSREG = SREG; /* store SREG value */
cli(); // disable interrupts

....

SREG = cSREG;

I just don't even attempt to disable interrupts anymore. It seems unnecessary.

I should send it to that RSVP ASAP! But I still don't know how. I'm supposed to read up on that. hehe.

"interrupts"

Good thinking Paul, you are on top of it again

Sick em, Paul, sick em. Those bugs don't stand a chance.

Great work

I'm going to stick that sucker in the car. I increased the ADC resolution, and now on the oscilloscope, the throttle movement is EXTREMELY smooth. I never had enough time before, but now with DCBs approach, I have all the time in the world!

I agree almost completely with Tango's comments. #3 is the most visually striking but simple logo. It burnt into in my brain memories right away. It also looks kind of retro, kind of like when people fixed things and made tools themselves... which is precisely the spirit of the project.

But I kind of like the letters touching the circle as long as you can tell the last letter is a "T" in revolt. And the large V should probably just be a larger font, just take away the squiggle thing on the right side. But even as it sits it would make a great sticker and probably be pretty easy to engrave. Plus black and white could reference digital control, nifty, huh?
