****** BasicX stuff for free *******

Started by Chris October 25, 2006
To all,

After recently deciding to clean up my office here at NetMedia I discovered
that I'm part packrat. I have tons of BasicX and other electronic related
goodies
that I don't have heart to toss out. Most of these items are perfectly good
RMA
returns or other "Cool" items that I didn't think should be tossed to the
garbage
gods. So I'm planning on giving it all away to those of you that contribute
or have
contributed to the BasicX forum.

The first 4 BasicX forum members to send an email to s...@basicx.com with
your name and address will get a free box of random stuff. I've got allot of
stuff so
if this goes over well we can do this once a month.

Here are the rules:

1. You can not sell anything you get in your box.
2. Winners will announce themselves by telling the group about the contents
of their
box after they receive it.
3. Even though everything should work, the items you receive are not
guaranteed
to do anything except take up space.

Also, in your email give a brief description of what you do with BasicX.
This
may help me select items for your box.
Good Luck!

Whoops. What I'm going to do. Maybe donate some of it to an undergraduate
lab, play with the more interesting stuff. I need a temperature monitor for
our computer cluster space- maybe some of it can go for that.

Hi, this is a very nice offer!

The reason I'm interrested is that I will retire the 1th of december
this year and will have plenty of time finishing my basicx project.

The project is garden and greenhouse automation.

Greenhouse: Watering, window and light control.
Garden : Waterfall, light and irrigation.
And in general a weatherstation.

For sensors I use the SHT75 and the MPXAZ6115A
For controlling the wate I use electromagnetic valves from old
washing machines.

The BASICX drives 32 solidstate relays wich are driven by four 8 bit
shift registers in series.

All is controlled and reported by Internet using the SitePlayer.

So from every place in the world I can see what happens at home
and can switch off/on any device.

I worked for HP 40 years in support.

Hi Chris,

I'm interested in anything you have to offer. I've written the
world's only BasicX textbook; I teach physics and robotics at the
high school level (using the BX-24 exclusively); I am currently
developing a new curriculum and another textbook on teaching physics,
electronics, and microcontroller programming (with the BX-24) in one
course; and my advanced students are desiging an 4-wheel vehicle that
will autonomously navigate our school's 300+ acres. So any equipment
and support would be very welcomed.

Thanks for the offer, even if I'm too late woth my reply. Nice idea.

Hello Chris
Just wondering...
Do you have development boards available?
That would be good for the kids...

My senior design classes use the BasicX for both
robotic and high altitude balloon experiments. In 2000,
the class won the IEEE SoutheastCon Student Hardware
Competition using a BasicX 24 for the microcontroller.
The robot project was published in Circuit Cellar (March 2001).
We continue to use the BasicX for all of our design projects.

A box of BasicX "stuff" would help reduce the cost of many of
these projects.
