I never thought I'd say "Gee, I wish I could use Microsoft Word for this.", but here I am, saying it.  Man, I hate #Adobe #FrameMaker.

"If you want this, then pay for it." If only they'd said the same to Zygi Wilf.

Yup. I'll roll 'em up in my socks and put 'em in my luggage.

I don't know what's up with the sudden swarm of business pages (or personal profiles that should actually be business pages) circling me, but get this: Unsolicited circles by businesses get reported as spam. EVERY TIME. Please keep it up. I enjoy thinning the herd of stupid spammers.

That said, if I have circled your business, I'm saying that I think you make or do something cool. Feel free to circle me back.

If you enjoy thinning, its probably a good think you missed last nights meat fest, we broke in a new grille. It was a thickening experience.

Looks like I'll be shipping via FedEx from now on. I won't use companies that participate in retaliatory firing.
 
So this happened.

In my experience of buying and selling stuff online, UPS and FedEx have really been about the same in terms of speed and un-broken-stuff-ness.  DHL always manages to be slower than expected, so I stay away from them.  If speed doesn't matter, I go with USPS.  If it's an expensive item or speed does matter, I guess my choice is now limited to FedEx.

NEW TUTORIAL: Connecting a 16×32 RGB LED Matrix Panel to a Raspberry Pi
http://adafru.it/deD

NEW TUTORIAL: How to connect a 16×32 RGB LED display to your Raspberry Pi: Everyone loves a colorful LED screen! Our 16×32 RGB LED display is a low cost, and easy-to-use arrangement of bright LEDs – just like the ones used in Times Square! This display makes a fantastic addition to your Raspberry Pi. It is pretty easy to wire up, but the display is quite demanding when it comes to getting it to display something…luckily this tutorial has all the code you need to get blinky.

This tutorial is based on this one by Henner Zeller but as well as using Henner’s C code to drive the display, we will also experiment (with limited success) in driving the display using Python.

Featured in this guide:
-Raspberry Pi Model B 512MB RAM
-Medium 16×32 RGB LED matrix panel
-Pi GPIO Reference Board
-5V 2A (2000mA) switching power supply – UL Listed
-Premium Female/Female Jumper Wires – 40 x 6
-Premium Male/Male Jumper Wires – 40 x 6 (150mm)
-Female DC Power adapter – 2.1mm jack to screw terminal block
