Ok, so setting up Godaddy email to work with Dotnetnuke wasn’t as easy as it should have been. Here is the quick fix for my issue, it is necessary to use a different smtp host name than the one they give you.
Solution: My Godaddy email address said that the smtp server name was [...]
LCD screen backlights can often go out requiring a new inverter or CFL lamp. Replacement parts can be hard to find or costly. Here I use a six dollar LED strip to replace the CFL backlight with success! If you look hard you can see points of light where the LEDs are but all together [...]
Here is my homemade function generator that can produce a square, triangle, and sign wave. This is all done with a few bucks worth of parts. The heart of the function generator is a LM324N quad OpAmp. I got the schematic off of a site where they were also selling kits to build the [...]
I needed to create an IO simulator for testing a PLC (Programmable Logic Controller). I pieced together a useful tool to do the trick of simulating analog and digital input and output that was expected from sensors in the real world.
This simulator can be used with any electronic device that [...]
I used a ST7565 GLCD (Graphic Liquid Cristal Display) screen to display the live analog readings from an Arduino.
Here is the Arduino library: ST7565_GLCD_LIbrary.zip
The ST 7565 I picked up on Adafruit for about 16 bucks. I couldn’t find any examples to help [...]
There are many advantages of having an automatic chicken coop door. The door will automatically close at night when the chickens are inside and open in the morning. Not only will they stay warm and cozy, critters like coons and skunks will have a much harder time getting to them. The ultimate luxury to me [...]

The actual part number is EKK-LM3S811. This particular flavor has Keil™ RealView® IDE included, there are about five optional IDEs you can choose. As [...]
A few years ago I built a keyless entry system for my shop using a keypad, now it is time to update it to use an RFID key-fob. My homemade door actuator was made from parts out of an old VCR. The electronics controlling the system consist of a few components, a NE555IC (timer), a [...]
Here is my second ESC or Electronic Speed Control that I built with an Arduino Duemilanove. You can’t just hook DC up to Brushless DC Motors that you have scavenged out of old CDROM drives, hard drives, or printers and expect them to spin. Brushless DC motors require you to use a motor controller to [...]
Here is my first ESC or Electronic Speed Control that I built with an Arduino Duemilanove. If you don’t already know, the best motors you can scavenge out ov CDROM drives or old hard drives are Brushless DC motors that you can’t just hook DC up to and make [...]
