@denman0000_gitlab I was just thinking if the Eeprom might be easier than writing a file in spiffs and reading it back. If you already have that part soughted though....

@moose4621 two years ago I built a c# windows app to fetch email from gmail and once a certain email was received it would read an attatched filoe and react accoringly .. i built that to automatically deploy virtual machines in my labs
@moose4621 yes on arduino it was all RAM based so to speak ... I never dumped anything to eeprom or SD since the only mission was to keep the arduino up and running
@moose4621 I am just trying to figure out how to marry the web page/server variables or actions with the ESP arduino side
@moose4621 I'' think of a smiple exaple to explian and maybe doing that I can also come up with a solution .. back to basics I guess and KISS :-0

@moose4621 the amount of tech and intelligence in this little ESP chip is just AMAZING ...I'm loving it

@moose4621
@denman0000_gitlab I cannot imagine why I would use an arduino board again after using the esp.
@denman0000_gitlab The esp32 is a super chip.

@denman0000_gitlab
@moose4621 I agree 100%
@moose4621 Two years back I built a solar controller with arduino but found that battery sampling and measurement was not great on the arduino ..so I dumped the project .. may resurrect this now though ...It will also be an intelligent battery charger too
@moose4621 perhaps you'd like to join me on that mission :-) ?

@denman0000_gitlab Sorry 'bout the delay, I fell asleep on the lounge. Too cold out in my office so I came in to the warmth and promtly fell asleep.
@denman0000_gitlab So why was the battery project not going the way It should have?

@moose4621
@denman0000_gitlab I am on stand alone solar power here. I use a Plasmatronic PL60 controller with an external SSR to control a second bank of panels to excess of 60 amps @ 48v. http://www.plasmatronics.com.au/downloads/PL60.PL80.UserGuide.V6.pdf
@denman0000_gitlab What size controller are you looking at making?

@moose4621
@denman0000_gitlab My current mission is to get a ping pong timer working on the client to alert the operator of a broken link. It seems the esp version of websockets does not have native ping pong.

hi again everyone
i'm trying to drive a toy tank with it (it has one of those little toy motors per tread), but when i give the signal, the LED on the bridge dims and the track only moves a mm
even with no load
i measured the voltage on the motor and it dropped from 2.something (initial voltage is 5V) to 0.7V for some reason

@skorokithakis Are you using the test script from aliexpress?
Stavros Korokithakis
@skorokithakis
bah, i am not, i looked for a test script but i just came across the Ali page when trying to show it to you guys
i'll try it, thank you

@skorokithakis ..Hi Stavros .. tikanis ?

@skorokithakis
haha, nice
@moose4621 do you know what the sbit/reg51 stuff is?
den har
@denman0000_gitlab
@moose4621 ...have been observing certain connect disconnect anomalies with websockets .. Maybe you instead of ping pong you could used the disconnect message/code
@moose4621 cool re power :-) interesting stuff too ...cold here too by the way .. southern lattitude winters brrr
@moose4621 size of controller would be small .. I only have a smallish panel but quite a few batteries .. so to save me having to rotate them manually relay controls would be ideal ..maybe add servos and LDR in for follow the sun for MPPT control ... of course if the design is simple and clever enough it essentially would for the core for any size ..not so ?
@skorokithakis are you based in greece ? if so where ?
den har
@denman0000_gitlab
@skorokithakis I'm not greek but grew up with a good few greeks and best friend was greek .. cureently have a freind based in athens

@skorokithakis
@denman0000_gitlab greece, yeah
thessaloniki, macedonia

@denman0000_gitlab
I noticed websockets has a few connection shortcomings .. not consistent across all devices an ages of browsers it seems ..unless its the libraries being used .. although I don't see any jquery library .. will poke around a little more
@skorokithakis Cool :-) Nice to meet you
Stavros Korokithakis
@skorokithakis
you too man
where are you based?

@denman0000_gitlab
Cold , but otherwise ok I guess LOL .. you been here or ex SA ?
Stavros Korokithakis
@skorokithakis
