Gaming event Auckmageddon is back once again, and thanks to Orcon with Vector fibre, connected to the Internet at ridiculously fast speeds.

Auckmageddon 6 is actually the seventh event of a series that has been running since 1997, and will see up to 400 gamers compete at the North Harbour Stadium for over 48 hours in February.

Event organizer Richard Patterson says: “We had such a fantastic response from the previous events that we’re back with even more prizes, bigger network, and even faster internet.”

Arduino and Mindstorm Lego NXT

A simple Mind-sensors Multiplexer for NXT Motors adaptation, lets you connect your Lego NXT experiences with Arduino, using a I2C interface. We all enjoyed playing with Lego and I'm sure some still do, but now there is a way to plug it in with Arduino compatible devices.


Using the Freetronics LCD Shield to Get a Simple LCD Temperature Readout

This sketch takes some code I'd used previously to print the temperature at 5 second intervals to the serial monitor, and prints it to the LCD instead. If you plug the DS18B20 into the breadboard with the flat face facing towards you, the pins are 1, 2, and 3 from left to tight. Because the LCD shield covers all the pins on the Arduino board, you need a way to connect your temp sensor jumper wires.
