So this is where I'm at. Skinning on a screen is pretty good, you can make all kinds of stuff. Images on a screen. For a long time now I've been thinking of getting back into 1: A life long passion and 2: Another kind of passion. In my profile it says I like building models and playing with electronics. I got back into both! I got a bunch of pics that I'll be uploading to this threads from time to time. So here's the first one but with a question. The screenshot with the text is the IDE of Arduino...https://www.arduino.cc/
The code is based on C++ and I'm so new to it that I squeak, lol. Anyway, I'm using a microcontroller called an Arduino Uno. This thing is a trip! From home automation to remote control for drones robots etc. I have several programs or sketches, already set up for a workstation I'm building. The reason for this post is a question. If anyone is familiar with C++ have a look at the last few lines of the code where the time is set. I don't know what I did wrong. The second pic is the time I got on an LCD. Any help will be greatly appreciated. More to follow.
I solved the problem by uploading another sketch to reset the RTC (real time clock). Seems my changes to set the time in the first sketch kinda screwed it up. Took me a little bit but the time is now almost two minutes fast. Good enough. For now anyway.
