Keep telling people batteries are scary.  Keep using them, though.

I don't know what most people do with their retirement, but my parents are fighting an oil pipeline.

Yesterday they sued the State of Iowa to stop the illegal seizure of land for the Bakken Oil Pipeline.

Worked on some LED control junk again.  Version 1 on the breadboard and then miniaturized into a wire.

This isn't my design, but it was a decent amount of fun anyway.  It'll operate up to 50 WS2812 addressable LEDs using a fairly simple serial protocol as input.  I drove a test LED (just one, because I was kind of dumb) from my bus pirate.

The original code, idea, etc... is here:

I changed the protocol a bit because I wanted to be able to directly address LEDs at will instead having to communicate the entire state of the world on every write.  (one line change)
