Hi there :) I just got started with netduino development a week ago - what fun! :D I've been playing MineCraft (www.minecraft.net) for a couple of months and thought I'd make a little timer to show what time of day it is above ground. For those of you who don't play minecraft: you spend a LOT of time below ground, and you don't want to come up tired and low on health, only to find out it is night, and the monsters are abound. In the simple version, the onboard LED indicates the phase of day above ground, and you can reset the timer to align with the in-game time using the netduino's button. I've also made a version which uses the LED, BigButton and LCD from the Seeed Studio Electronic Brick Starter Kit with the μLiquidCrystal library. Full source code and blog post with videopresentation at http://xnafan.net/?p=219. Kind regards - Jakob ----------------- Life is a game - have fun :) http://www.xnafan.net

I liked that video. Very nice how you went from simple LED blink to more complex LCD display and countdown! Nice project :)

I'm with Oz on this one... That's got to be the coolest blink adaptation I have ever seen!

Thank you guys for a very warm welcome to the forums :) @Chris - watch out, MineCraft can be fairly addictive ;-) @OZ & Charles - thank you, I tried to pass my learning experience on to everybody else :)
