Comment on Arduino + ESP8266 hacking by Bruce

Sat, 06 Feb 2016 21:19:50 +0000

You are right on a lot of issues, especially the String class being a total waste of time! Stay away! But one just to work around the other limitations with the Arduino architecture, my power monitor/controller project ended up being three Megas in communication with one another. I used the std Ethernet shield there, but now trying to get the ESP8266 working reliably on another project, going to give that ESP8266wifi lib a go, .

[…] And I suspect there’s a lot of market opportunity in this space (thus my recent thoughts experiments). Think: your house as a Tamagotchi. Or kids games that result in real-time energy […]

Thanks Willow, and apologies for the incorrect URL—I have updated accordingly. I'm looking forward to seeing what the Dahon team come up with—the EEZZ looks very interesting (though I'd not heard about it before you mentioned the awards). And lovely to see the Ikon Electric as part of the standard range.

Hi there and thanks for your post. I am writing on behalf of Dahon and would firstly like to let you know our correct website is We remain innovators as well as the world's largest manufacturer of folding bikes and have won both a Taipei Cycle Show and a Eurobike award in this last year. Thanks for your time.

@Toby — thanks, and my pleasure. Ang and I both continue to be impressed, inspired and challenged. It really is a bright spot for us. @Joe — awesome to hear you're looking at citizenship this year, and of course unsurprised you're taking such a considered approach to it in terms of understanding and respecting its history. And I totally agree "There is definitely a rich tradition of honourable behaviour across the entire spectrum of people in this country." I do try to remember the "honourable" individuals and acts that appear in history, even in its dark moments. That's one of the things that I really appreciated about the First Australians doco series — it did take the time to acknowledge the contributions of many people that were lights among the darkness.

Thanks for these very cogent thoughts Grant. I have heard many people planning picnics, BBQs and drinking, but no one mentioning what they feel about this history. There is definitely a rich tradition of honourable behaviour across the entire spectrum of people in this country. There are also many events that require sober recollection. I will be given the opportunity to apply to become an Australian this year. I am taking my research seriously and plan to spend some time understanding more about the history of this nation, both good and bad. As someone from another nation with a chequered past in relation to how it treated, and still treats, its' original occupants, I feel Australia day will continue to suffer under a lack of respect for the real history of all ancestors of the current occupants.

'devolved into a sort of “make them all a bit knobbly” thing' — couldn't have put it better myself... such a great description :) Your Impreza definitely falls into the "good" category in my book. So looks like it might just be a case of waiting a generation or two then...
