    DirectX on x64 has been my biggest issue on this x64 Windows 7 box, but I just found out how to resolve that tonight. By default, Visual Studio compiles to a target platform of "AnyCPU", which means...

    Housing for 16 relays, that sounds interesting. Wire management is going to become an issue to deal with getting high amperage connections to all those relays. I use some inertial sensors (gyros and...

    A case that holds just the FB wouldn't be that useful for me since I need relays and sensors in some kind of an enclosure as well. So far, I've been using plastic containers designed to hold food....

    For now, I'm going to continue to do FB testing on a 32 bit XP machine. All the production hardware is 32 bit. x64 drivers would simply be a convenience thing for me on the main development machine....

    If you're bored, add me to the list looking for x64 driver support eventually. My development box is currently running on Windows 7 64bit (which is working great).

    Leave the jumper set to USB, which means the processor will be powered via USB.

    Nothing should get hot. If that is happening, you must have one of the jumpers hooked up wrong. Unplug it and check...

    I don't think anyone has released anything for VB6. I don't know how different VB6 is from VB.Net, but there is a VB.Net example you might be able to reference.

    Yeah, I've looked closely at the beagleboard and the gumstix. What I'm finding is that most of the boards that can read sensors and control PWM outputs don't have a 10/100 Ethernet connection, or...

    Oh, yeah, I saw that bug too. The .dll is reporting that it found a v3 FB when there isn't one on the system. I think I reported it to 2k1, but I never pushed it any further.
