tells you how to adjust the picaxe programming editor to a picaxe 28x1

 in 7 easy steps!


this is made to help all the newbies who come to this site and jump into the "start here"project.    -and by doung that, hopefully makes the amount of "HELP!!  its says "hardware not found""-forum topics! :)

many of these newbies think: they can look at the walktrough's pictures, build their robot and copy-paste the program-code into the editor to then pres "F5" = ROBOT! :D

but then it says..     "ERROR!  hardware not found!"      ..because they DIDN'T READ THE MANUAL!!!

(remember to read the manual, part 1, 2 and 3)

Are there people who have not figured this out yet?

So I don't have to reboot and dress like a chicken? Hmm I guess I was doing it all wrong! ;)

BTW; Why the fck have they not made it auto-change into the right mode? (Or at least provide the option)

Often, when I work on 2 different bots at the same time, I have to swap and swap, it is so irritating! 2 computers then? Yes, but then if I want to copy-paste all the time..

The freaking editor knows that this is wrong, and knows how to set it right.. Well.. then do it already, you editor!

You could use this http://synergy2.sourceforge.net/ to make the computers share the same mouse, keyboard and clipboard :)
Do people not read the manual or something??? Is this really a needed tip? Come on people, use the thing between your ears.....

Careful Voodoobot!

Comments like that will cause someone to throw a tantrum and create a new site called Let's Make Programs!

can we vote on that, and I'm already making the site!!!
I gotta back-up my boy, Voodoo on this one, yo.  (All said with a kinda "hip-hop" accent)

I guess it is all part of the evolution of the LMR website. Perhaps I should call it the de-evolution or dumbing down of LMR. Originally, LMR had well written, original projects. Now we are getting either plagarized posts directly from manuals or other websites under the guise of "tips", photos of chips with wires hanging out, or movies of a hand fliiping a switch.

It's too bad, LMR had great possiblilties, but is now catering to the newbies -- all because, yes, the newbie can create a post--regardless of the content.

So let's encourage the newbies to add more "look at what I did", no-brainer posts.
