@ Gabriel - Haven’t added it to fezzer yet. Don’t have time at the moment.

@ SAM - Will make a video of it later. Building a gps tracker for a ski vacation comming up in two weeks and just recieved my makerbot thing o’ matic today. (YEAH THE WAIT IS OVER…)

@ Gus is byte.parse the correct way to convert int to byte? It works but not sure this is the most efficient way.

cheers


#6

You mean ?

int x =10;
byte b = byte.Parse(x.ToString());

This is actually extremely bad!
It should be like this


int x = 10;
byte b = (byte) x;

#7

@ Gus - Thanx, Will fix this on the wiki as soon as I get the chance. 8)

Updated wiki with new code. Will do some more testing to see if this works.
