Are there still active Basic stamp users here?

Hello to the Community.
After a few years dedicated to Basic Picaxe, I'm back to do some programs on my Basic Stamp2sx test interface.

Are there still active Basic stamp users here?

Sincerely

  • hi, here is another fan of the basic stamp.

  • The Basic stamp is quite easy to use and there are plenty of accys. and programming out there for it. I like the BS2 Oem dip package, its cheaper than the modules.

  • And I am still here. Just restarted a few projects. Needed to use the TI83Plus Calculator program idea to make sure the things were still working.
    FYI: In an earlier incarnation behind this forum, the Yahoo Groups collection was available with one individual's request for help regarding how to connect his Stamp2 and his TI83Plus. He received help from an unlikely source, it was the individual behind Small Robots who provided both a Stamp2 program and programs for the calculator. One of us translated that Stamp2 program into a Stamp1 program for me. That was @JonnyMac also known as @"Jon Williams" .

  • ...yup, still here; BS2 and BS2pe.

    We are here!

  • Aaahhhhh, I'm glad to see that there are still lovers of these Basic Stamps :)) <3
    Years ago I regularly "played" with the BStamp2sx.
    I then switched to the Picaxes... much cheaper!
    But having the PicBasic Pro Compiler, I currently return to the Stamp to program the final project in a PIC.

    A small question to the specialists: Is it possible to copy the debug values appearing in the terminal? (to then use it in Excel for example).
    I don't see a "Copy" button and right clicking on a selection doesn't work

    Thanks to the enthusiasts.

    Hello!
    There is, (or perhaps was) a program that enabled Excel to capture data delivered to it in serial format from originally a BASIC Stamp. And it has since been updated to support Windows 10, and here on this page you will be able to download it. Please remember to read the portions concerning your PLX-DAQ content before downloading it.

    I started with the BS2 and have a collection, but I am more into the Propeller since it can do things that the Stamp can't.

    One of my long term projects is to convert items such as the Stamp-in-Class kits to use the Propeller.

    A past engineering supervisor gave me a Parallax-Assembled BS2 OEM Module that supposedly has bad I/O pins but I haven't tested it.
    Someday I will build a Stamp Tester so I can test it.

  • Hi Roger. Thank you for your answer but I am in Win7.
    Hi Genetix, thank you for your answer but it doesn't really answer my question ;)
    I thought I had already succeeded in such data entry with a simple cut/paste (?)
    I may be confusing with another editor from another microcontroller?

    zorgloub,

    Sorry that I didn't see your question.
    I was using the BS2 under Windows 7 and I have it installed on Windows 10 but haven't tried it with a BS2.

    I also seem to recall being able to copy text as with most programs.

    My Windows 10 computer was cheap but I had forgotten how horribly slow AMD processors can be and now that I have IDEs installed it takes forever to start up.
