Thanks Jon,
Andrew

I misread the schematic at the tutorial page as ground. Anywho.. I fixed that and now I see some pulses, but still not working. Everything is dec "08" now. I got to get this working, its senseless too not be able to read date/time to log events.

I went over it all again a dozen times... I cant (in my limited experience) find any reason for it to NOT work.

I all ears to any ideas...

Yeah, 4.7k... I didnt have any in stock so I had to run to RadioExpensiveparts to get some.


I can try another xtal, to ensure I dont have a bad one, but thats almost chasing ghost... which is no different than what Ive been doing, or so it feels.

Thank you GNS for viewing & posting.

If you're using a breadboard that's an issue to consider, as they are not perfect. Myself I'm a fan of breadboards as they are quick and convenient, BUT..........
