    No, you’ve got it. The catch here is if I add a command to the...

    (Also, have you tried writing squirrel code only to make it work?)

    @dtex
    What? That’s .nuts (sorry, couldn’t resist)
    That’s a good suggestion. I’ll give it a shot.

    @rwaldron
    hahahahahaha
    “.nuts"
    ;)

    Hmmm, no joy with Squirrel code either. Pretty confident that code is correct though now that I’ve typed that in a public forum it’s sure to have a bug.
    Donovan Buck
    @dtex
    Yep, it was a bug… fixed. I was so excited I yelled out “It worked!” at the same time as a servo started vibrating on the table. Scared Eleanor pretty good :shipit:
    I was missing most significant byte on the sub address.

    @rwaldron
    Ah-ha!
    Glad you tracked that down :)

    Well it worked once :frowning: @eleanorshanks made me go to sleep with problem unsolved. I’ll bash my head against this some more tonight.

    Hi. @rwaldron the firmata release you just tweeted. Will any of that fix tone + J5?
    Rick Waldron
    @rwaldron
    No, we need ConfigurableFirmata for that.

    I need to take an ember break. Is there anything little I can help with?

    We need some kind of whiteboard app for this project
    there are like 348759485769847569847569456 things to do
    But everything has a dependency on something else
    and that dependency might be software or hardware
    At the moment I’m restoring all of Rose’s music from an old back up drive—she thought this was all gone forever.
    shouldn’t take me too long

    omg omg omg @rwaldron they sent Wilto ANOTHER MYO
    he only ordered one but now we have 2
    I feel less bad now that I took the other one home this weekend to play with
    Rick Waldron
    @rwaldron
    Nice!
    Do you think wilto would loan me one?
    Sue Lockwood
    @deathbearbrown
    @rwaldron maaaaybe. I also ordered one that is supposed to ship next year
    so after that we'll have 3

    I2C Writes are working in dtex/imp-io + dtex/tyrion . Tested with the Adafruit PWM Breakout board. Trying to figure out where the recepitionist keeps the mailbox key so I can retrieve my MPU6050 and work on I2C reads

    @rwaldron
    Nice!!
    That's super exciting

    I might have to monkey with the reporting format. Right now it assumes two elements for each reporting pin on an array (in string format) with length n*2 where n is the number of reporting pins.

    With I2C we have to add in the address of the reporting device.

    I could reflect what I did on the payload side and separate reporting pins with a pipe, split on the pipe, and then split the resulting elements on commas. Those second elements with length === 3 are I2C.

    First Things first though: I’m going to play with multiple sensors on an Arduino, port that to the Imp and then try I2C sensors on an Arduino and then port that to Imp. I really haven’t played with sensors enough to feel confident architecting this just yet.

    Sounds good

    Is there any reason not to merge 5-and-tests with master?
    Rick Waldron
    @rwaldron
    I don’t know, I haven’t looked?
    Oh weird
    That was an accident I think
    Yes, please merge
    @dtex ^^

    I kept working on this because I’m waiting on some new steppers. I’ll have it done this week. Tracking stuff down between my test.js, imu.js, imp.js, agent.nut and device.nut is causing my brain to rewire itself. I’m gonna go talk to my rubber duck now.

    Haha ok

    Hey gang
    Donovan Buck
    @dtex
    Hey Derek, long time no see. We’ve got the standard arduino style pin stuff working great so feel free to play with that and report any weirdness you might encounter. I’m still actually wrestling with the I2C read stuff so it’s not really in a testable state. Expect a message here soon with a request to try it out.

    @frxnz
    Ok perfect. I just got the imp/april today so I'll solder the headers this weekend and get everything set up
    Donovan Buck
    @dtex
    It’s a cool device. I’ve got three and expect to be doing lots of IoT stuff with them. I’m anxious to see how the Spark Photon stacks up but the Imp guys have set the bar pretty high.
    Derek Wheelden
    @frxnz
    I really like the form factor of the imp, and the setup seems reasonable simple
    dtex @dtex needs a second set of eyes
