for anyone interested, I've set up http://opensourceaquatics.com/wiki/. would love to see some finished examples going up. I'd especially love to see bigd's hardware contribution make its way over there.

if there are any issues signing up or creating new sections, entries, etc, please get in touch.

Just to let you know, that video is using an older version of the Arduino IDE, many libraries now do not work with Arduino IDE versions 1.0 and lower.

I suppose a simple "Hello World" sketch would be as good as any place to start programming.

Be aware that the project will get much more difficult, very quickly

Ya but I may just build one using the .NET framework instead as that is what I am familiar with. Only problem is I prob be doing it all alone and no one else around to help lol.

Multiple ways to get to the same goal.

Hey Scapegoat, opensourceaquatics.com is showing a "Page Not Found" error. You can still get to the Wiki page though.

I'll post up the hardware page soon. I am really looking forward to getting started on this.

DarkBlade, I just found your aquarium controller thread on gta aquatics, really impressive work. You will definitely have to share your code on the wiki page once that gets rolling.

I'm waiting to play with everything a little before I post on scapegoat's site. i've been watching the tracking for everything all week, it all finally came in today, but the office manager closed the office early so i couldnt pick it up! So frustrating...

Darkblade, you should post up the work you did on your controller, you've done a great job.

Mike in MD, any progress on your controller?

It's been stagnating because I've been busy with other projects.

I did finally manage to get the RTC working; now I just need to program adjustable RTC, light timer, and auto-dosing, and I'll be done. If I actually work at it, a couple weeks work, at most...but real life comes first

Darkblade, is your controller based on Jarduino, or did you find a different source? I finally got all my stuff, and I am getting nothing but errors when trying to compile the Jarduino code.

The buttons and some of the layouts are based off of Jarduino.

The backend coding is all new.

Jarduino version 1.1 will only compile on older versions of the Arduino IDE (prior to version 1.0). Some libraries will only work on newer versions of Arduino IDE.

So, either you will have to:

a) use an older Arduino IDE so you can compile Jarduino, but rewrite some libraries
b) use a newer Arduino IDE so you can use newer libraries, but scrap Jarduino
