You see, here in Canada winters are cold. Very cold. And heat isn’t free. Yeast likes to be in nice warm moist conditions, but my wallet likes to [...]

Just a quick update on the Arduino LCD Library (bring it to version 0.3). I have worked many hours to iron out all the bugs in the code that checks the LCD modules busy flag. This is the part of the LCD modules controller that tells the arduino it’s in the middle of an internal [...]
I received an email from Keith Neufeld (awesome electronics blog) about my Arduino LCD library with some tips on how to improve it. So over the weekend I dived in and did just that. Specifically, this version removes the hard coded delays after each command is sent to the LCD and checks the LCD’s busy [...]

For now it lives here on my site, but if it’s popular enough it might need to move somewhere like the Arduino Playground. Check out the Arduino LCD Library page for more details. Here is a short video demonstrating an animation sample.
