  • I own one of these. Unless something has changed, the power control knob is continuous, not “five-position” as the above description claims.

  • Thanks fort the article. I’ve been planning on trying something like this myself.

    I already have a home server (old laptop) hooked up to various home made gadgets and running an http server to control said gadgets. I was hoping that I would be able to host my own Alexa skill on my home network (i.e. point Alexa to ‘oldlaptop.local’ or ‘’). Looking through the Amazon documentation at https://developer.amazon.com/public/solutions/alexa/alexa-skills-kit/docs/developing-an-alexa-skill-as-a-web-service , it’s not clear whether Amazon allows this.

    Has anyone successfully hosted an Alexa service on their home network?

  • According to http://www.rock7mobile.com/products-rockblock this weighs 76 grams.

  • Yes, the CIT was an older version.

  • I had the same problem. I tried two versions of XCTU (5.x and 6.x) on two different computers. Also, same problem with two different XB24-Z7PIT-004 xbees. In the recent past I’ve used XCTU successfully on several other xbees. On about the 20th try it worked – I don’t know why.

  • After a large amount of trial and error, I managed to get things to work by forcing IRremote to use timer 3 and PWM pin 5.

  • I’m trying to get the IRremote library (see http://www.righto.com/2009/08/multi-protocol-infrared-remote-library.html ) running on the 5V/16MHz Pro Micro. The IRremote code has a lot of #if … #elif … #elif … #elif … preprocessor directives for various boards, but this board is not one of the choices. Is the Pro Micro equivalent to, say, one of the Teensy boards so far as timers and interrupts are concerned?
