    @dcpking sorry keep falling asleep there's only one part i had a choice in. And it worked until i added function choice

    Dunno if this link will work. What I put together for the box and tested by writing a quick blink program. Not the Arduino that will be given away tho. That's my tester for when I ever get some to making those sensors. https://goo.gl/photos/KKxxFnEjcEjxTWyT9

    ah ok, I've known a couple mike perry's lol one married this girl Megan I knew when i was younger we called him brother mike the other is from Oreland but seeing as most of us are in montgomery county and both of them had friends who were programmers in the early days of the interwebs it was a high possibility

    @keepsabbathholy_twitter

    Michael Perry
    @keepsabbathholy_twitter
    @lantech19446 Yeah it's not bad. My wife worked at SIG for a short while, but now she's working for Barclay Card down in Wilmington
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    o ok, bala definitely > wilmington
    Michael Perry
    @keepsabbathholy_twitter
    Wilmington seemed like it had a weird road system, but this is coming from a guy that's used to cows and horses blocking the road lol
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    @gpsims When I work with several variables that need to become a sentence, I write out the full sentence first
    e.g. result = "The big dog ran quickly home."; Then I go in and replace each actual word with a variable. So like the first one coming in is myNoun so
    e.g. result = "The big " + myNoun + " ran quickly home."; And I just build from there making sure to keep spaces intact.

    @gpsims
    good idea. ill try that thanks.
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    oo so you're from the real new york lol
    Michael Perry
    @keepsabbathholy_twitter
    Hah yeah
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    just used to people calling binghamton upstate but it sounds like you're from like somewhere between syracuse and tonawanda
    Michael Perry
    @keepsabbathholy_twitter
    Oh I've lived near Oneonta and up in Rochester as well
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    nice
    Michael Perry
    @keepsabbathholy_twitter
    And near 'cuse, come to think of it
    You sound like you know NY pretty well
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    not very syracuse and one other university were clients of my fathers but 2yrs ago I drove out to tonawanda and stayed in one of the neighboring towns for a friends wedding and had no desire to drive through nyc so i went up through binghamton and then took the main highway all the way across the state
    Michael Perry
    @keepsabbathholy_twitter
    Good idea, it's a much more relaxing route
    You hopped off of I-81 in Binghamton and got on I-88 for a while, correct?
    Or did you stay on 81?
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    think i took 81 all the way north I know we took it all the way south coming home because we stopped in carbondale to see friends

    I thinkin' I'm going to try to finish this udemy course over winter break. So far I've done so little coding since the semester end. Git a Web Developer Job: Mastering the Modern Workflow
    Michael Perry
    @keepsabbathholy_twitter
    Ah ok. If you hop on to 88 in Binghamton and drive east for about an hour, you'll hit my hometown.
    @Lilyheart that last class you linked is really cool, btw
    gpsims
    @gpsims
    yes thanks for those links

    Reminder! "Hello fellow MontCoders! 2016 has been an interesting year for the group! The group officially kicked off May 17th. Since then, we have has 31 weekly online chats, 13 meetups, and 2 lectures! We've posted nearly 14,000 messages in the chat room!

    I am looking for ways to make 2017 even better than 2016. But, to do this I need to know what you want! I’ve created a survey to gather this information. If you could please just take a few minutes of your time it would be greatly appreciated. None of the fields are required and you can skip any fields you wish. However! If you complete every field (but the last one, you'll see it) your name will be entered into a hat. On the January 11th meetup, I will pull for a prize basket! I am still gathering more prizes but at this time we have stickers, an Arduino pro mini, and a gift card!"

    Thank you to those who have already responded!

    Oh cool, an Arduino. I think I had a book on C that used an Arduino in one of the projects...
