Ever received tracking information for a package and didn't know who the shipping carrier was? What if you know the carrier, but you can't seem to find how to track packages on their website? Well today's Quick-Tip can help you with a simple solution for both.
The solution is "Google-It." That's right. Simply enter the tracking information into the search bar on Google. Google will read the string and chances are it will recognize the carrier. If Google senses that the string is a valid tracking number, it will give you a direct link to track your packages in the search results. If you use the Chrome browser you can even just type it in the address/search bar at the top. How easy is that? Stay tuned for more Quick-Tips. See ya!
This is my first attempt at creating a standalone Arduino. This is using just the bare Atmega238PU without the Arduino development board. I was able to pull the flashed chip from the board and use it. Looking forward to branching out further without needing a full standalone projects. Here's a link to the pin-out I used.
I got my Arduino UNO working with a 1602 LCD display (16x2). Just a simple "Hello World" message and a counter for now. This build uses the LiquidCrystal library from Arduino's website. The library allows you to use any LCD display that is supported by the Hitachi HD44780 driver. The example sketch contained in the library is what I'm using to display "Hello World" with. Thanks Limor Fried at Pro Trinket. All for now.
