For folks who didn't see last night, we've got the glass blocks lighting up pretty nice; we have scrolling text, and a silly game.
I've updated the Wiki for the glass block project: http://www.tcmaker.org/wiki/doku.php?id ... _signboard
I added videos and pictures. If someone wanted to post something to the blog, I think that'd be fun as well.
I'm trying to be a bit better about collaborating on the software, instead of just running ahead and writing everything myself. But it's so much fun I can't help myself
However, I have in theory got the code generalized such that people can just write code that talks in x,y terms, and the library will take care of lighting the right bulbs. If you have a Linux computer, I've even got a simulator, so you can do development without having to be connected to the blocks themselves. Holler if you're interested; I'd be happy to make it more available to others.
We've got another string that we need to mount, and we really should clean up the electrical at some point. Jude seemed to be on top of that process.
If anyone wants to buy strings to contribute to the effort, they're $65 at Costco.
