I’ve only just discovered that our newsletter subscriptions system has been broken since last January! New customers and anyone signing up to our newsletter since 15th January 2015 were not correctly subscribed to our newsletter. Luckily we have the email addresses in our database, they just weren’t allocated to the correct list. I’ve now fixed this and moved affected email addresses to the correct list. So those affected will now start receiving our newsletters. Hopefully you won’t be too surprised when you start receiving newsletters from us.

A slightly belated Happy New Year to all our customers and supporters. I’m a little late getting this up as we are in the midst of an office move! So things are a little hectic.
But wanted to say thank you to you all for being with us and we look forward to working with you in 2016 and beyond!

Allow me to tell you about a fun new technology called Chirp created by some good friends of ours.
Chirp is an exciting new technology that shares information between devices using sound and you can try it out for yourself.
Chirp works by using little more than your device’s speaker and microphone. Data is encoded into a sound which is then “chirped” over the speaker. Another device or devices within earshot will “hear” that sound and decode it.
The beauty of this is that it removes all technical obstacles to sharing data (no need for infrared, or setting up bluetooth etc) and makes it possible for the most basic devices (think Arduino boards, toys, TVs, games etc) to chirp without any special hardware. And it means that one device can very easily share data with multiple listening devices.
You can share URLs, notes, images and video between devices – and now from your desktop web browser. College lecturers and presenters find it very useful for sharing links to websites, slides and presentations to their delegates, without having to collect email addresses or use any special infrastructure.
You can download the free Chirp app from the Apple Store or Google Play to see it in action. It’s great fun! There’s also a Chrome Plugin which makes it a breeze to share links from your web browser to your phone/tablet.
And if you want to make your own apps chirp there’s an SDK you can get your hands on too. I had some fun not long back making a Lego EV3 Robot chirp. Why not!? Anyone for a Macro Scheduler -> Chirp Interface?
And if you like what you see why not get in on the action – Team Chirp are currently crowd funding to raise money to take Chirp to the next level and are exploring commercial opportunities – so you can even make a little investment.

This feature makes it easier to work out which bit of code does what as you can see the screenshots inside the script:
Note the thumbnail images in the script. To view a full sized version – as in the example above – double click on a thumbnail.
This feature is on by default but can be switched off before you record a macro by toggling the “Take Window Snapshot Images” option on the macro recorder settings dialog.
