Me and two other students are building a model space station with weather sensors and a webcam. Our job is to program the code to make this avalible on a website for other students in baltimore so they can control it.....only problem is that I've never had any programming experence in my life and the person that is supposed to help us sucks at helping and so im reaching out to the people of parallax for guildence.... how do you use PINK, What language code does it use, and what is the best way to set it up and help would be greatly appreciated. http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/smile.gif· or we will end up like thishttp://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/freaked.gif

PINK is an Ethernet board (or pop artist).

There is a manual on PINK somewhere on google. Look it up. AS far as setting it up goes when you recieve the actual part there will be a setup manual that comes in the package i believe. http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/jumpin.gifhttp://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/roll.gif http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/yeah.gif http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/redface.gif http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/yeah.gif http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/turn.gif http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/yeah.gif http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/smhair.gif http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/yeah.gif http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/lol.gif http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/yeah.gif

For almost any Parallax product, you go to Parallax's webstore and find the page for the product. There's a section on the page for links to documentation, sample code, and other downloadable resources. The PINK manual has a link on the product page for the PINK.

If you're interested, the YBOX2 is a Propeller-based Internet interface that can act as a webserver and fits in an Altoid box.

to translate the "goodluck" wishes:

as you are students you are supposed to do some basic work yourself

I think the minimum you can do on your own is start reading the PINK-manual
looking through the examplecode provided by parallax
and come back here to the forum with concrete questions

These questions can be very simple questions that's ok but you have to write a CONCRETE question

As long as the forum-memberscan see that you make some concrete steps on your own
they will help you

best regards
