I'm finally taking the plunge into the hardware world, and found the well written tutorial here on CodeProject.com, FMBomb - A Beginner's Approach to Hardware Programming. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find the NS73M breakout board for sale anywhere. It seems to have been discontinued. Can anyone recommend an alternative board that would work for that project?
EDIT: I stumbled upon this board. Anyone know if this board would be suitable?
This came up a potential abuse, but I think it's innocent in this case. I've removed your link, because it looks very spammy - and if left, you would probably be tagged as a spammer very quickly, and banned from the site.

I have the Alexa app on my IPad, Sony Bravia TV with Alexa setup app, and Echo Dot. I follow all the steps to setup. When I attempt to link Google & Amazon accounts via the Bravia TV Remote app it fails and I get an error screen. Everything seems to be in order. I tried whatever I could find with a search without success. I appreciate any help or good reference to get them connected.
I have a problem in installing Internet Printer programmatically with username and password.
I am able to install Printer using the following command:
rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /if /b "Printername" /f %windir%\inf\ntprint.inf /r "https://username:email@example.com/printers/Printername"; /m "HP Color LaserJet 2500 PS Class Driver"
But Windows is not recognizing credentials. Hence I cant Print. I get Access denied message.
Is there any option to achieve this programmatically?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
I am using a dial up connection for net connectivity. The net connectivity is established through a GSM GPRS USB Modem connected to a PC Com Port.
I am using rasdial command to connect to Internet.
Once connected, I am pinging my server periodically to check and ensure that net connectivity is in place.
When Ping test fails (this happens irregularly after 2 hrs, 3 hrs or sometimes aftr 5 hrs also), I try to disconnect the established connection using rasdial disconnect command - however this is not successful every time a ping fails for reasons not known to me. (somewhere I read that rasdial disconnect command will not work after disconnection).
Given the above scenario, i am not able to reconnect or reestablish the net connectivity unless and until I restart the PC and this is not a possible option as my application is running and this will not allow PC restart.
Want recommendations /advise as to how to reconnect to a dial up connection after it is disconnected ? What are the possible ways and means for this.
I want to create a virtual serial port on Windows10 using VirtualSerial2 sample but first I should convert it to KMDF. When I look at the functions in the sample I saw that some of them apply to KMDF or UMDF only. Why are they used in the same driver? How can I learn that which one to include?
I have a Dell XPS system with Windows 10. It has four SATA ports. Everything is going fine except for one thing: the DVD drive.
When I first got it earlier this year, the drive, although not used extensively, worked fine. I was able to install a few things from it. Shortly thereafter, I installed two more HDDs. All four SATA ports are now full. I can see and use the three HDDs just fine but not the DVD drive. On a few occasions, the DVD drive shows up and I can use it like normal. Other times, not! The BIOS recognizes the drive, just not Windows (using either Windows Explorer or Disk Management).
So my question is, would having all four SATA ports full be the cause of any of this?
I went out to Dell's site and ran their diagnostic program on my machine. It had two recommendations: one for the WiFi adapter, and the other for the BIOS. I don't use WiFi, so I opted for the BIOS update. Since installing, the DVD drive has remained intact.

Hi! I'm sure this is without question a super beginner question, but I feel like I need to make an informed decision because I don't know how much it matters.
I need to know what is the best budget laptop for a computer programming college student, that can handle whatever is required of the course. My old laptop broke and I need to know how important a new one's specs are for this course. Any information would be helpful please.
If you're planning to use it for normal purposes like using MS OFFICE and other software. It's very important to choose your processor and RAM. And if you're into gaming, please consider getting a good GPU as well. HP Recently released this laptop which I think is good for you.
Hi Ivan, while buying a laptop especially for Programming ( As you are a Programming Student) You should see below these specifications:
1) RAM - Memory is very important as all applications use memory to store temporary variables. 4GB is Good and it can increase up to 16GB.
2)Processor: Cpu plays a major role in speed as it processes millions of bits in a second, So Ideally i5 or i7 processor is the good choice.
Extra Features you should look for -
1) Graphic Card
2) Battery Backup
You can check out both of them, they have good reviews and specifications.
One thing you didn't say and it has a bigger impact to the performance is the use of an good SSD.
About your tips...
I have worked long with DELL Latitude (several models) and I was very happy with them. They have the option of "big capacity" battery which gave me the possibility to work the whole day without having to plug the power supply.
