Welcome Pete,

The kitchen timer looks like a fun project. Are you going to post a schematic and some sample code for it?

I am not sure what stage of data loss grief I am in but I think I am mostly back to normal. I was going to post the code etc but I have suffered a catastrophic HDD failure. I do my programming and eagle CAD on the windows laptop, I guess because I have AVR studio too, idk it just seems easy. Anyway, even though I have automatic updates turned off, Bill Gates personally logged into my computer while it was booting to download an update. It rebooted to BSOD and was done.

I did post another project in the mean time however, but it;s just an RGB lamp.

meh

Sorry to hear about your data loss.

I haven't had a HDD crash for a long time but a few days ago a piece of code (about a 2 day effort) was overwritten. That sick feeling washed over me for a few days...

Nice thing was that I wrote it again in about 4 hours since I had already experienced all the pitfalls and debugging pains the first time. I am usually quite good at backing up work but I guess I need to double my effort. Confused

Yeah, we should all know better its just that hardware is so good these days we get complacent. O, well like you said Alan, we may have lost the data but we retained the experience.

I remember my 400MB drive that cost me about $500 died and I lost a ton of stuff. Back then there were no inexpensive ways to backup all the data. I guess 2 or 3 hundred floppies would have done it but that would have cost as much as the drive and taken a few days...

Wow how times have changed. Now 400MB could be backed up on a thumb drive in about 2 minutes and it costs about as much as a fast food meal. Smile
