How to handle a serial protocol automatically

By mvuilleu, in Misc, november 09,2018.

Yoctopuce serial communication modules are more than simple interfaces: they are able to query and analyze autonomously the data coming from any device to then present the results in the way of a Yoctopuce sensor and/or record them in the embedded data logger. But in order to do so, you must tell the Yoctopuce module how to manage the dialog with the device. So here are a few examples as a complement to the documentation, to make this task easier.

How to copy contacts from one SIM card to another

By martinm, in Misc, february 27,2017.

This is based on a true story. Imagine that you have to move your contacts from one SIM card to another. There is an app for this, isn't it? That is... unless your phone is not a smartphone, but an old mobile phone made by a small Finish company that has been taken over by a software editor a few years ago. Unfortunately the new owner company has decided to support only the very latest models. There isn't any official software available to retrieve your contacts on this phone anymore. So you are getting ready to copy all your contacts by hand, one by one... But wait a minute...
