Steve! Glad to hear from you! I hope a long "layoff" means something different in Oz than it does here. Regardless i hope you are doing well!
yeah the website is having some issues, im trying to work through them. One of the plug-ins seems to be causing the delay.
If i remember correctly we sent the parts and you did the build? this was back in 2012? I think this is before we moved to the Arduino R3. Did you assemble the Chronocontroller? Can you refresh my memory on this?
There have been some minor changes here and there, nothing huge. My first suspicion is arduino reworked thier boards and are now on revision 3. Some things had to change for it to work with the code.
I think your controller is all hardwired right? using the protoboard and such?
that overall design should be fine. You probably just need an R3 arduino (the silkscreen on the back of the R3 is white, not blue)
Then you will need the Arduino IDE 1.0 or higher.
I do recommend moving to the newer code if possible, it is far more robust, it is more efficient, and it just runs better in general.
we may have to make a couple adjustments to get everything working on your controller.
