Hi All,
Time for a wine I have had before but... I am writing the test procedure for a new product and met with a push back for the way I wanted to do something. I am a Windows guy, it ain't perfect but... So I wanted an application to drive the serial port and configure it to work. The software team could not allow time to write a full application. I offered to write it in Visual Studio, I was treated like I was going to eat small children rather than save them time & effort, M$ apparently does not fit with the 'spirit' (those words were used) of the project ? WTF | :WTF: Have I suddenly been transported to a parallel universe where we have to vegan, drink vegetable juice??Unsure | :~ .
Also now I have remembered another thing, Why use more computing power than necessary, to flash an LED this lot want a Beagle Bone Black, I suggest a 555. 'Oh, but that is not reconfigurable', It's to show the unit is powered on. Why? Simpler for software but not cheap.Mad | :mad:
