Mike and Humberto, once I got over the humps of ignorance and bad reading, it worked perfectly.

I finished the tempsensor project and am reading 71.29 F in my computer room.

You guys have done a real bangup job with the nerdkit. I really expected a much more gradual learning curve, but I'm rolling now.

I suspect the rest won't be quite as easy, but with your support and your pdf guide, the original kit and projects were a snap.

I would like to load some images but can't get a handle on it using element inspection of posted pics. How do you load images?

I'm fairly handy so if I can just see how it's done once, I should have it.

Thanks Guys!

Placing images in posts is done by 1st saving the image on a server somewhere. I use photobucket.. other people use flikr... Then get the url for the photo you want to post for example in photobucket, it is here:

To post the image above, I just entered:


The URL was just copied and pasted from the field pointed to as the direct link. You MUST place the ![] before your URL in parenthesis. Otherwise it will not post.

That's all there is to it.

Thanks Rick, I'll try that right away in the 'mounting nedkit' thread.

I was missing the ![]. Doh!

the alt text actually goes in the square brackets, so if you wanted to do a picture of a schematic at with the alt text "schematic" you would just do this:


It would turn out something like this:


To see the alt text, you can turn off images.
