@Crusty1: as I have had to buy a new laptop today, because XP is no longer being supported.
Ha: I have a working windows98 machine. Their are drivers that were older hardware never ported.
For me it is always about the drivers. Otherwise I would use a Mac. I have some old ones of those too. There is a MIDI program that works best under OS9. Apple removed finder MIDI (Well all of real Quicktime*) from Mavericks. If it was not designed at NeXt, It was not designed by Apple. (But I digress)
*Quicktime player should be called Quartzplayer now.
I have two Arduino Leonard-based projects, a few PIC-based projects, A Raspberry pie with a small Adafruit LCD, some FPGA projects, two game wardens, seven hunters and a cow. I might be able to chat about one or the other of those.
Hi David -- I'll use your converter next time -- I'm sorry you can't join us -- but maybe you'll wake up in the wee hours and not be able to get back to sleep and think "I wish there was someone I coudl chat with" ... at which point a light would go off ... LOL
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
