Le télégraphe Twitter. Comment redonner une seconde vie à un télégraphe utilisant le code Morse pour en faire un appareil utilisable d’une façon moderne ?

Le télégraphe Twitter

Le convertir en une machine à Twitter pardi ^^ C’est le projet un peu fou que je vais vous présenter ici : En utilisant un vieux télégraphe comme base de son projet, Martin Kaltenbrunner a intégré un Arduino qui récupère les impulsions saisies avec le télégraphe et qui les convertit en texte en utilisant l’alphabet Morse.

Puis il utilise l’API de Twitter pour envoyer ses messages sur le célèbre réseau social. L’ajout d’une pile pour l’alimentation du l’appareil, et d’un connectique RJ45 pour le relier au réseau en font un petit appareil facilement transportable et esthétique. Martin a aussi publié le code source de son application pour Arduino au cas où vous vouliez reproduire ce genre de bricolage chez vous en utilisant un vieux télégraphe retrouvé dans une brocante.

Split Infinitives

What Are Infinitives? To understand split infinitives, we first have to clearly define the word “infinitive.” Wikipedia defines “infinitive” as the unmarked form of a verb (1), but you really need examples to understand what that means. In English, there are two kinds of infinitives: bare infinitives and full infinitives. Bare infinitives are the kind of verbs you usually see in a dictionary, such as go sprinkle run split Full infinitives are made up of two words, usually putting the word “to” in front of the bare verb: to go to sprinkle to run to split What Is a Split Infinitive? The safest choice is to avoid splitting infinitives. A split infinitive puts an adverb between the two parts of the full infinitive.
