I've been putting together a simple web UI for controlling the #RPi #WS2801 mood lights. For now its a simple set of pre-set non-animating options (and the all important "off" switch) that Laura can operate from her phone or tablet. Python with #web.py has made that pretty easy. I've got some hardware improvements to do as well, firstly get a box that fits the Pi with its add-in WS2801 bridge card and also split the strip into more modular sections.

Charles Wells / Dogfish Head D.N.A.

An American Pale Ale made with "A reduction of Dogfish Head 50 minute IPA". A "reduction"? What does that mean? "We used some beer concentrate we bought from Dogfish Head to make our normal rubbish IPA a little bit better"? #realale #craftbeer

Just ordered me some of these after feeling annoyed that a bunch of my Christmas tree lights aren't working. Last night I was thinking.. it's a shame individually addressable LED ropes don't exist. Turns out they do! and they have 24bit colour control! Florian over at +hackerspaceshop reckons a RPi would have no trouble running 1024 of these things.. but I'll start with a few less than that for now. #raspberrypi

They do exist... I was playing around with buying a whole load to make a crude display ;)

Nice. Simple docu about Brussels' traffic problems with a perspective from the cyclists. For once the couriers aren't presented as arrogant red light jumping cocks, but intelligent folk with an insight. #cycling

Indeed interesting.  Not too sure how many people really would understand the likely implications of this though!

Should it be you, or someone else?"

Freddie Mercury & David Bowie's isolated vocal track from Under Pressure. Stunning.

Beer was good. Food was lukewarm and bland. Shame. Been here before and it has been better.
