For the last two days I have been assembling my new laptop, a rather old T410.  With the SSD drive inside it is reasonably quick, not as fast as the duff IdeaPad, but tolerable.

I have Windows-7 installed, and all the program development stuff, and I managed to compile a standard chunk of Nordic code and get it to run, so I think I am almost back to square one now.

So I’m now back to my twin goals:

  1. Figure out why my own program doesn’t work.
  2. Make windows speak BLE to Nordic.

Yay!  A little success on task 2.  I managed to make Windows discover my FitBit.  I think the issue may have been baud-rate after all.  The dongle seems to be driven at 1Mbaud!
