Blond Moment Ok, Boy Blond Moment Strikes Again: if you remember I used a CANbus Module hooked up via an I2C bus. But Wait nope it's the SPI bus. And the 2 switches in my diagram showed them hooked up to Digital Pins directly, even though ...
Flash, Food For Thought: Ok, I have a Smart Display, driven by an MCP23017 16-bit I2C which requires a lot of glue, (quick count) 8 data lines, 5 address lines, and 8 control lines. If you count this on your fingers 8+5=13+8=21. Ouch. Oh yes and the ...

OK, I Have had it up to you know where with the GRAY CODE!! When I have written this decoder in software, it takes a loop or two, It just eats CPU time. This is ok if you can use interrupts. But the Ardunio does not return the interrupt value to you ...
