defect

Mr. Basic axles

This one goes out to those who participated in the first Mr. Basic Challenge.

The first batch of kits that DAGU Electronics sent out had some bad parts in it, and DAGU was quick to replace those parts, and the problem is fixed on the later releases.

 Now I wondered if anybody got 4 replacement wheel axles (2 fronts, 2 backs) and kept the old ones? You see I need those old ones...

So if anybody is willing to post'em to Norway, I'd be really grateful.

picaxe trouble

ok,

I just got a new picaxe 28x1 for christmas. I was trying it out and the pins don't seem to be working.

For example:

I connected a led to output pin 3 and ground and uploaded the code

main:

high 3

pause 5000

low 3

pause 5000

goto main

For some reason this code doesn't seem to do anything as the led just stays on constantly. and, yes I did wire the anode and cathode the right way

Is there something wrong with my chip, or am I just doing something incredibly obvious and dumb?
