@Max: when are you next going to be back here in Huntspatch?

Actually, I was in Madison last Wednesday to tour STI Electronics (VERY interesting place!), but word of my trip must have been leaked in advance because I saw that you slipped off to the Left Coast just before I passed through.

I'm looking forward to seeing the Prognistication engine, the BADASS display, and the Infinity Mirror (and other heretofore unknown wonderful stuff) soon!

@Rcurl: I wonder what would happen if...

Hi Rick ...interesting... I was planning on writing Part 2 today, but I finished my Infinity Mitrror last night, so I'm going to post a blog and video on that sometime today, and I'll do Part 2 of the BADASS display tomorrow -- then maybe you and I can chaton the phone (when are you next going to be back here in Huntspatch?)

@SandorD: Are you playing the old MADASS/BADASS switcheroo on us?

If only I had a coconut for every time someone has done this to me... LOL

@SandorD: I feel slightly cheated but very much intrigued!

Hi there -- thsi was my bad -- I started out with Max's MADASS Display, where MADASS originally stood for "Magnificent Acoustic Diagnostic Astoundingly Superior Spectrometric"

But then I started to think that if we ever got to say "Max The Magnificent's Magnificent Acoustic ...." ... it would sound a bit silly ... also I didn't really like the "Spectrometric" part ...

So I changed it to Max's MADASS Display. where BADASS stands for "Bodacious Acoustic Diagnostic Astoundingly Superior Spectromatic"

This means we can now say "Max The Magnificent's Bodacious Acoustic Diagnostic Astoundingly Superior Spectromatic Display" without sounding silly at all (LOL)

I wonder what would happen if you took the LED outputs from this PIC Color organ:  http://www.protonbasic.co.uk/content.php/3435-Colour-Organ-using-a-fast-8-bit-FFT-routine  which uses FFT and fed it into 8 LM 3915's?

What got me here is the link in the emailed newsletter from ubmtechelectronics.com. It was promising me "Max's MADASS Display, Part 1". Following the link, I've found "Max's BADASS Display, Part 1", instead. I feel slightly cheated but very much intrigued!

I need to know, @Max, do you have both MADASS and BADASS displays? Have the design specifications changed? Are you playing the old MADASS/BADASS switcheroo on us? Or, shock horror, have you been censored?!  :-o

@aeroengineer: There you go bursting my bubble of euphoria...

It wasn't me -- I never touch other peoples' euphoric bubbles (not since ... the incident!)

Yeah, I kind of have my hands into a lot.  You were also very complimentary of my skills.  I still have a long way to go.  Tonight, I will be setting up a function to enable my Gyro/Accelerometer for my receiver project.

 

Looking forward to the rest of your project.

It doesn't seem all that long ago when I was a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed young engineer. Now I feel like an old fool, but where are we going to find one at this time of the day (LOL)?
