    Ask your Propeller 2 questions.

    So I took out my new Propeller Project Board, which just arrived the other day, and I asked the Propeller 2 questions. I have been sitting here for hours, awaiting a response, but so far, not even a peep of chatter.

    Do I have to pet or praise the chip while asking these two questions?

    Bruce, you have to both pet and praise the chip while asking questions. :) Where did you ask those questions? Was it on this forum or on Hack Chat? I don't see you on the list of followers on Hack Chat. And what does the Propeller Project Board have to do with the P2?

    You have the wrong board... you need the Propeller Activity Board.

    Just to make sure, I asked mine two questions today.

    "Propeller," I said. "How long does the flash sync signal of a Sony A7Sii last?"

    The answer is "anywhere between 1/50 of a second and 1/80 of a second, depending upon your shutter setting?"

    "Thank you... now, assuming that I set you up for IR remote and order up a shot... is the timing reliable enough
    to sync at 1/8000 second?"

    and the answer is "YES"... woohoo!!!!

    I was using FDS for the conversation... it is a little hard to hear... you have to put your ear up to the monitor.

    Which goes to show you just how smart the Propeller 1 is... most people think that a Sony Alpha can't sync a flash using a shutter speed higher than 1/250 sec. The P1 thinks otherwise:)

    Imagine what the Propeller 2 will be able to do!!!

    Very droll.

    Nothing :) Ken said, "Ask your Propeller 2 questions." I was simply following the instructions :)

    I will give it a try, but I have almost given up hope for any kind of response :)

    You know me, every once in while, I have to make an attempt at lousy humor.

    Oh, one of us should be embarrassed that I didn't get your joke. :) Have you ever tried my Lerner program? You could load it on your Propeller Project Board and ask it a few questions. Be prepared to answer questions coming from it as well. It is quite inquisitive.
