Not Able To Update Over Usb Serial

Office Camera Suggestion
Hi DJ et al, Maybe you could add a timestamp to the stream/clock on the page of the EZ-Office camera. It would be useful so people in other timezones (like me) don't have to keep converting the times :D
question
Html Error
I doubt it will make any difference, but when I looked at the 'EZ-Office' page source to find out what script you use for refreshing I found a little typo in the code. At line 17, it says The type is correct, but the language should be without the 'k'. I think most browsers will interpret the code just fine, but I thought I'd give you guys a heads...

question
Ez-Mini
Hey DJ, I've got a cool idea assuming the IC on the EZ-B is a Pic18F97j60: Could i design a EZ-Mini that uses the SMD version of the IC? If you could provide me with the schematic (don't need the PIC code) i could design a example. What do you think? :D
question
Map() Feature
Hey DJ, Is there a map feature in EZ-Builder? I have a voltage divider setup to measure the battery voltage and i would like to show the voltage on my Omnibot's LCD. Now the value is 0-10v in stead of 5v so i would like to map the ADC value from 0-255(is 255 the max value of the EZ-B?) to 0-10v.

Re: I2c Help
