Tonight’s accomplishments consisted of software fixes, updates, and learning. There was a bug in the server code that caused the server to crash occasionally due to an out of bounds exception on an array. This is now corrected and everything should now be back on track. In addition to the basic housekeeping, we were able to add another feature to the door module. Now, when you press on the F1 button, the door panel will ask for a zip code and look up the weather there. Soon, we’ll be at the point where it’s like an iPhone where the door panel has all these cool features and it opens doors. In addition to software updates and fixes, we also went over Lab View and applied circuit principles.
That’s right! We now have working lights! Its seems that after the code was completed, the cable that connected to the lights was damaged. With that replaced, the lights are now functional and flashing. In addition to the lights, we also have the North Misters working. The full display of Enlight’s grandeur is now in full swing!
Awesome images after the break!

Tonight we had a fun filled evening. I went over the basics of what the magic cRIO fountain controller is all about and kinda how it works. We then jumped into the fountain and reset the bugger because it didn’t seem to be working, this turned into finding out that the router was no longer getting DHCP. . . I’ll work on fixing that tomorrow with CAE.
Also accomplished was Chris talking about how the light patterns are created.
Most importantly, the door keypad was updated to return weather if the F1 key was pushed! I believe the next addon is to allow entering any zip code.
Consumed was 2 papa johns pizzas, a pineapple (much to Beley’s objection) and sausage, it was unanimously voted to purchase papa johns again next week. We also enjoyed luscious chocolate frosted scooby-doo cupcakes
