I was hoping it was a bit more specialized to the task…
Always on the lookout for good tools.

Tutorial - BadgerHack - Retired

In the section “Your First Badger Hack,” you should place a comment above the first delay statement telling users what that delay is for. Right after printing out “Hello world,” we changed the string to something longer and were confused for a bit why only so much text scrolled by before disappearing.
Also, the comment above the scrollText call says to scroll 2 times but the parameter passed is a 1.
We got copies at the 2015 AVC workshop and really like them. I expect they might be offered for sale at some point. Some better documentation of the Sparkfun_LED_8x7 (so you don’t have to open up the header or source files) just to play around would be much appreciated by casual users.
I have v.1.6.3 and replacing the boards.txt file did work. Maybe that helps in identifying the issue and solution.

Yes, dougal is correct about 120V AC is the rms voltage.
The power formula being used: power = Vrms*Irms only works if the load is resistive.
I’m expecting in this case that the power factor is not 1. You would want to hook up a scope w/current probe to look at the phase angle between the voltage and current signals.
I would be surprised if the power number on the bulb is not correct. I expect someone, even as a write this, is plugging some bulbs into a lamp socket, which is in turn plugged into one of those socket watt meters like the Kill A Watt, and verifying the numbers.

Heard from outside the trailer after Shawn’s gotten his next generation Redboard idea praised by Atmel:
I haven’t had an orthodox career, and I’ve wanted more than anything to have your respect. The first time I didn’t feel it, but this time I feel it, and I can’t deny the fact that you like me, right now, you like me!
