@David: You better get a rugged meter, the needle will be bent around the end stop most of the time..... :-)

It sounds like you s[peak from experiance. Fortunately I'm including a special damping circuit and an emergancy bypass circuit and -- if all else fails -- a "OMG, did you see what just went past the window?" distraction input LOL

@David: ...how many times do you post a comment and then see a spelling mistake?

Every $%^ time -- the amazing thing is hw few people notice that "Edit/Delete" link even though they may post a number of comments each day.

@David: I do like the idea of the "Gruntled-meter", though....

I must admit that is one of my favorites -- along with the "Suspicion of Wrongdoing" meter...

@David:

Max is definitely British and definitely ugly (magnificently so).  So I assume you were talking to him?

 

You are correct on both counts!  ;)

Hi David, Thanks for the pointer to the edit function, I have used it on my last post to Tomii as I needed to change HTML to XML,  the post post Christmas drunk is still with me perhaps?

I always see mistakes when I post, so this is a boon, other sites have a review capability, but this does the trick just as well.

Hope to see you in print over the year, I liked your Captions for this month.

I think I shall be starting a New Year resolution to bring bloated software producers to heal.

It's about time they presented software as selectable modules that you use or drop as you need.

This is the reason I still like Delphi, most of the time I only need the basic software, if I need another function it gets dropped in to the IDE or droped if it is no longer needed.

Well Crusty is British and hardly a looker, nose got broke riding horses over fences, ears got bent boxing, and hair wont stay flat from all the electric shocks working on the Tube (Underground). But I might just have the edge on Max even though he is still a lot younger than me.

@tom-ii As I am also ugly and British (and your comment was under mine) I thought you might be talking to me.  However I am a detribalised pom, I have Rhodesian, Zimbabwean and Australian influences, whereas Max is definitely British and definitely ugly (magnificently so).  So I assume you were talking to him?

Hi Crusty and complaints of the season to you... :-)

Are you aware you can correct your own posts?  At the bottom there is an Edit/Delete link which lets you re-edit them.  So now you have no excuse for dropped H's!  I was told about this a few weeks ago and since then have used it a lot - how many times do you post a comment and then see a spelling mistake?

Have a good New Year!

Hi tom-ii, Santa shopped early for me at Kickstarter this year but delevery will be New Year plus.

I have got side tracked with most of the projects at the moment, as I decided to make a stand alone front end for programming Atmel chips because Studio 6 is so bloat ware it takes so long to load on my laptop. The need to programme the chip has gone by the time the splash screen loads.

So I have my old Borland Delphi hat on at the moment, I have the Dos based "Atprogram" running on a Delphi front end, but am having difficulty with some dependancies associated with the Atmel device descriptions used in Atmel Studio 6 XML files, Studio 4 XML is a doddle to work with, but as new devices come on line and SAM is supported with Studio 6 version XML device files, I am determined I will get my front end to work with Studio 6 files.

May be there is a big blog waiting to come out of this head bashing session?

Have a good New Year along with all the past associates of last years blogs.
