Arduino wordClock

Comments:

Hi Brett,
I am trying to make your arduino word clock which I am getting close to having a working proof of concept. I am interested in using the doppler module but I can not download the V4.4 zip file from your site. When I click on your link it takes me to a page that states "Not Found [CFN #0005]" GitHub only has your version 3.8 on it, and this is the only place I have been able to download your files.
Can you update this code on your GitHub page or send me the zip file to my email? Your notes on this project are really great, even a novice like me has managed so far to be able to figure this out and this is my first arduino project! Thank you for creating such detailed notes!!

Pragotron TFT Master clock

Comments:

Hi Bret,

I want to build the Pragotron TFT Master clock but when downloading the code it says not authorized.
Any chance you can upload the code or make it public again?

Regards,

Ronald

Cat Feeder

Comments:

Just stumbled across your cat feeder - it is very similar to mine (http://www.newtonnet.co.uk/catfeeder) but most definitely brought up to date with its control interface - nice work!

Nearly 10 years on and we're still using ours; it's not let us (or the cats!) down once!

Voltmeter Clock

Comments:

Hello, Brett.

And greetings from "The Other Side" (of "the Pond", that is).

Although I have seen your Voltmeter Clock (based on Alan Parekh's Multimeter Clock) on other web sites, I just found your home web site today.

I am interested in different methods of mechanically or electronically displaying time of day, and have considered for some time that I should build an analogue meter clock. But unlike most analogue meter clocks that I have seen on the web, I would like to display proportional hours and minutes (between tick marks) instead of "digital" or incremental hours and minutes on the tick marks only.

Since I plan to give my clock an antique/retro "look-and-feel", I will probably only use two milliammeters for displaying hours and minutes (and, possibly, use them to also display month and date when the user activates a switch), since older clocks rarely displayed a seconds indicator.

In my project, I am planning on using an Arduino Nano board, instead of the PIC16F628 that you and Alan used, so some code porting will definitely be needed.

My plan is to use a periodic 2-second pulse time base instead of one of those DS1307 or DS3231 RTC modules. So I found your 30-second synchronisation method to be most interesting. In my case, however, I plan to use the circuit board module from one of those cheap quartz clock movements. Even though it is probably not as accurate as your radio receiver time base, I reckon that the quartz clock circuit board would still be far more accurate than the Arduino's ceramic resonator. I will, of course, need to make changes for the 2-second pulse period instead of the 30-second one in your project. (I will be using only one of the two coil outputs from the quartz clock circuit board - hence the time sync signals will be once every two seconds, instead of once per second.)


And now for my QUESTION:


Upon perusing your PICbasic code, I note that there is a "secondCounter" variable. It appears that this variable gets set exactly the same as, and in the same places in code as, the "second" variable. But secondCounter does not appear to be referenced anywhere (except in the assignment statements).

What is the purpose of this "secondCounter" variable?

Thank you for sharing your projects on your web page.

With best regards,
"DuinoSoar"

cat feeder

Comments:

Hi Brett,
I made the Cat Feeder.
How can I change the schedule for the two automatic feeds?
I have analyzed the list of the sketch but I have not found any information possible.
I should take them to three feeds and change schedules.
Greetings

ESP8266 IOT Pet Feeder

Comments:

Hello,
I installed the "Cat Feeder" app on a NODEMCU -12E.
It is very well done and simple to use.
The RTC widget on iPhone6 is not displayed, remains an empty square but is instead displayed correctly on an LG Android
Greetings
