    Who says you have to have knowledge to use it?

    Forrest,

    Can you visit back issues electronically? My first issue was July of 96, and I have most of them to date.
    I keep saying to myself that I will scan the pages of interest for a personal electronic library, but I never do.

    The online version of the April issue is out. If you look on the web site just above the back issues you can get a free copy.

    I don't see any mention of the propeller. The Stamp applications article is about RFID tags and I could not find any other mention of the propeller. I even did a word search on the entire magazine, nothing.

    Are you certain that you're reading the April number?

    It has the propeller, with the demo-board setup picture on the front and all.
    (The same as you can find on http://www.parallax.com/propeller/ )

    And on page 16 there's an article 'Stamp Applications: A new Spin on embedded control' by jon Williams.

    Nuts and Volts just started the electronic format a few months ago - $19.95 per year for the online version only. The print version is $24.95 per year - I subscribe to the print version. The free issue Nuts and Volts is giving away is the April, 2005 (not 2006) issue.

    This is it ==> THE PROPELLER DEBUT
    Nuts and Volts, April 2006 on-line subscribers; Pages 16-20 and the Blue Front Cover.

    Frankly, I prefer the Print Version as there are limitations with the on-line interface that bug me.

    But, my printed versions have failed to arrive in Taiwan even when I pay a huge postage fee. And they come months behind.

    Beau, I cannot seem to get into any Archives for Nuts and Volts on-line. Servo on-line provides that. You would have to buy a CD collection.

    Thanks Kramer,

    I was afraid of that.... I'll stick with my hard copies for now.
