OMG - It works

Recommended Posts

Ok, to some out there, it's not going to be all that great, but after all the disappointment of things not working, I finally got my display board on FSBus working, hooked up and got the heading working on the display.Boy was I rapt.What I think this means, is there is something wrong with my Key board as the switches etc aren't working, and it's obvious that the Com3 board is working.As a side note - both of these boards (display & the board with the 7 segments) were homemade over the weekend.That's right - I was the one who was saying how hard they were - well I'm doing a complete 180 turn - and saying it's easy.My problems were I had the etchent too hot, and leaving the board in the etchent too long.Will let you know how I get on with the key card in the next couple of days.
