  • Does it let you do the dalek or cybermen voices?

  • Can you use this to clear/reset codes?

  • Just set this up for my nephew, but the only games that re installed require a keyboard (Doom, Quake, Zork, etc.). DOS emulator requires a keyboard. Amiga and ScumVM doesn't seem to have anything actually installed and requires a mouse to exit. I thought this was supposed to work out of the box (once it was all wired together). What's the deal?

  • How about a case for this little guy? Maybe something with a knock-out at the end so you can plug it onto a USB port and have a cable running out the end to some external device the redstick is interfacing with.

  • So, I'm new to RJ485 and, if I use this board, I will be using this board for all the nodes in my little network so I don't care if it is compatible with other boards and I don't care if it is full-duplex. What I need to understand is how to connect them all together and communicate.

    There is a Network Topology diagram at the bottom of this page that makes it look like it is as simple as connecting all the R's and S's on a sort of 2-wire bus with a couple of resistors at the ends. The wikipedia page for RS-485 describes several different topologies. Master-Slave would suit my project the best (but isn't an absolute requirement), but then I read on this other page that master-slave requires 4 wires and full-duplex.

    Regarding communication, is it just as simple as connecting them to the TX/RX of the UART on my Raspberry Pi and Arduino boards? What about voltage translation between 3.3v and 5v devices? I know they boards can handle both but will the network of them handle a mix of voltages coming from the devices?

    So, can anyone help me sort this out. I don't want to buy the boards until I at least have a basic understanding of how to use them.

  • What about the most important feature you left out -- using a removable DIP microcontroller so you can program your chip and then pull it off the board and use it directly in your project.

No public wish lists :(
