Seeing as Parallax have been kind enough to offer it's forum members a free blogging page, I thought I'd use it.
I had previously bought a chameleon-avr board but found it to be too complicated for a beginner and the support seems fairly non-existant. (One forum has been left to die, the other doesn't send an account confirmation e-mail)

The input data are from another micro chip that transmitted by UART (TX) and the propeller receive data by UART (RX).
The data which propeller receive is a string data like that,for example "a1234b4567c", it represent there are "a" signal's data "1234" will be saved in card with csv file,and "b" signal's data "4567" be saved in another csv file.
This is a great documentary style video about the demo scene, something I have followed for a long time and greatly admire and enjoy.
Get 'yer favorite coffee, munchies, etc... and enjoy!
