Ray,

Thanks for the link to Arduino Internals, looks interesting. So far
other than a little playing my Arduino work has used other's code. I
built a nano-keyer that is based around the Arduino Nano - neat
package. I find that my coordination on the paddles isn't what it used
to be and I can no longer do 30 wpm on the straight key :-(

Can't copy that fast any more either...

Anyway, the nano-keyer also handle direct kb or computer input so it helps.

My next Arduino project, hopefully, will be an auto tuner for a mag
loop. Again I'll probably cheat - been following the progress of Alex
and friends with the Alex Loop tuner.

Part of my reason for writing though is plain old curiosity. You seem
comfortable enough with computers that I wondered what your background
might be?

I've been playing with computers since late 50's. Started with IBM as
an FE - parted company shortly after due to culture incompatibility and
moved on to operation, system design and programming. I've probably
learned, used and mostly forgotten more programming languages than
today's developers ever heard of. Still fun though...

Thanks again for the link,
