Use of multiple periods in a sentence...
I do this a lot, especially in text messages. To me it means that this conversation "ain't" over.
I have noticed that when I see someone else do it that I feel a special kinship toward that person, even though it is only a mutual love for multiple little black dots. I did a little research...and by little I mean a LITTLE. I have determined that this is called an ellipsis. Peep that on wikipedia if'n you don't believe me. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ellipsis. I read someone call it lazy. As if I didn't want to have to determine correct punctuation. Maybe that is the case. If that person had to do what I do all day I am pretty sure they would feel a bit lazy. Someone said they use it to show an awkward pause. I can see that. According to someone the correct use is for omitting parts of a long quote. Regardless of what anybody says I don't think that no one person or group of people has the right to determine the "correct" use of a language that has borrowed so heavily from other languages and has evolved so much over time. Just my two sense on the three dots...

Basically I wrote a small program to the Basic Stamp telling the microcontroller to look for a variable and then to set I/O pins high or low based on the value of the variable..
Then I wrote a Visual Basic program that sends a value to the serial port based on command_click events..
I will gladly post the code.
If there is any interest, please leave a comment. Thanks!
