Re: Board Manager again

I did a fresh install on a Linux Mint 64 bit system within the last couple of weeks using the boards manager method.

Re: Messaging between multiple Maple Mini clones

I now need to write a simple protocol for my needs. My intention is to use one byte address, two bytes message length, the message, and a CRC. I intend have every single address transmission be acknowledged. Every broadcast will not be acknowledged. In this way it is a simple matter to mediate who ...

Gold plated CH340 adapter

A couple of these showed up in the mail today. They seem to be well made and have the extra RTS and CTS pins available if needed.

Re: using USB ?

Shouldnt there only be one possibility for RX/TX connection ?
That's what you would think, but the first one I ever tried I was using the adapter shown at about 5:30 into this video and couldn't figure out why I could not communicate with the board.

Re: Uploading Sketch to Maple mini from Arduino 1.6.9

I always put a Serial.begin statement in the setup section, even if I don't need it. If uploading fails, I try again, pressing the reset and compile buttons at the same tim...
