Hmm interesting, I replied to your question by email but then I clicked the "view message" link and it brought me here. Is this a beta forum?

This is a topic I am interested in so I would be in favor of a forum for this.

Hi Kevin,

When browsing through all of the other topics, can you see any that would cover this topic? What about the Programming topic?

eeprom discussion does seem to fit in the programming forum.

Hi Scott,

I can see this topic of Eeprom being combined into programming but without more detailed topic lists I feel one might neglect to post on this type of work. When I see the topic programming I think using a factory scan tool and performing an update or module replacement. A locksmith topic would also be beneficial in that for this specific type of repair won’t be lost in a generic topic list. Again these are only suggestions! 

Since were talking about suggestions ... the reason I brought these up were for two reasons... one to see how this network worked (the ease and operation) and secondly to bring about discussion as to what others would like to see collectively. So far I think I would like to see an APP based software for this group where we can use our smart phones and load pictures instantly much like Facebook. Also when I tried uploading a couple pictures ... they seemed to get lost after uploading them? Perhaps I didn’t navigate around enough to find out where they were hiding. Anyways back fixen cars!

NOTE: it would be nice to edit a post after posting and Iam still looking for the back button or some tab button that brings me back to the main page.

Editing is very high on the list.

In terms of navigation, we'll be making changes so that you'll never need to leave the homepage. Once those changes are in place, navigation will become much easier. 

For now, some browsers (like Safari) allow you to hit the back button (or swipe left-to-right from the edge on mobile Safari), and they'll close the new tab for you. Others you'll need to close the tab, and you should be taken back to the homepage tab that remains. Or if you're OK with having a second tab remain open, just click the DN logo at top/left.

I touch on these topics and more in our beta discussion.

Hi Kevin,

I know this is from long ago, but I wanted to answer the "app" question. Yes, we envision an app in the future but for now the website is designed to function well via any modern device. 

In regards to the image upload. We rolled out changes a couple of weeks ago which provides one with the ability to embed the images, videos, etc. between paragraphs.

We created a short video tip on that feature the other day. The video also demonstrates file uploading. We haven't received any complaints over files getting lost so please let me know if you continue to experience issues.

I would like to see a topic involving EEPROM work. My fear is that with few having the time investment and equipment investment individuals such as yourself have that it would require further time investment on your part to create a group that can start contributing back to you...if that makes sense.

I say that from the perspective that I would lean HEAVILY on you to get me up to speed, if I can ever get there, to even be able to give you any return on investment.

If you and others are game to help create something like that I would be greatly appreciative and very much on board with trying to get to a point where I can finally help other and maybe even you.

Does that make sense?

Later,

Matt.

I’ve been contemplating putting on a Eeprom course at a larger venue such as vision or another training event. There is so many different eeprom reader/writer‘s and certainly some are better then others in a variety of ways. In order to produce this type of class and introduce it to the automotive side the class would really have to be a basic class... introducing tooling ,and equipment, software,history behind it, why we need it and how to perform a read and write. simple and to the point. Then down the road start expanding on course levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced classes.)

Agreed and alot of techs would require a beginners class anyways then add on with more advanced classes. I think its definitely something that needs to be shared and taught how to properly do it.

I would attend that class! In fact if it is something you may do and I would be able to attent without extended travel (I'm on the east coast) I'd love to be put on the email list for that.

I would really enjoy to learn about EEPROM, however i agree with the need for a very basic class if it is to be offered across the automotive field.
