Aha. I've seen your code else where. On my short strip (16 so far) and an audio sensor worth amp, it flashes so fast it appears white most of the time. Instead I'm using an Fft library and averaging the frequencies down to four groups.
Neat!

It's pretty cool, however the vocals are to far in the background, so it doesn't mesh as well as it could do with the drum beat.
That's the sound engineer in me's positive criticism, but honestly i did like it heh

Aha, I really am going to need to sketch out a design rather than bang this straight out!
Using the #RaspberryPi plus #ws2812 digital RGB leds
I'm building an interactive python command line interface for the lights.

the Gamblers fallacy "...When applied to how songs pop up on our music players, the fallacy means we, for some reason, think it less random when two similar songs play.
It is a lack of uniform distribution that throws us off, writes Martin Fiedler - a programmer who describes himself as an "average nerd"."

I noticed this on my random based 'twinkle' light sequence for my WS2812b LED's. They seemed to oft flash the same LEDs in a row, even after initializing the Raspberry Pi's hardware Random number generator.
I was a lot happier with the result when I added a fudge to prevent it lighting the same led twice in a row!
When you opt to press the shuffle function on your music player, just how random is the music that comes out?

The staff are easy to talk to and genuinely eager to help. This is a great little shop to get photos developed and they also sell film and camera accesories.

I needed a key cut. I had 5 minutes. 5 minutes Including getting to the Station, buying a ticket, and getting on to the platform for a train at 10:50am. Timpsons of Epsom cut my key. I got there at 10:41. The key was cut and the transaction finished at 10:42 (according to their till receipt). I got to my train on time. STELLAR!

I've stopped here a couple of times since i've come to Newcastle, and I've gotta say, it's yummy. You can take away, order online (if you can find the website), by phone, or eat in. I had a Pizza which was definetely above average from the other takeaway pizza i've had in Newcastle, and the Kofte kebab was very succulent! My tummy is happy, cheers dudes XD
