News - New Product Friday: Just …
The Loveland CreatorSpace booth at the Denver Mini Maker Faire will have a 60x36 pixel WS2812 LED display that uses Fadecandy boards, server and Processing sketches. So stop by and check it out.

I made it through the checkout process, used PayPal express, got my order confirmation, PayPal shows the charge … but … the order status went to “BO Arrived” and nothing shipped on Friday. I sent a query over the weekend to customer service and the response was that even though I had completed the order, they were oversold. So, I did not get one of the original offering. However, CS indicated that they made up a few boxes for people like me and it should ship out today.
Sparkfun writes their own code for all of their web site, e-commerce included. It is a non-trivial thing to have such a limited supply, a time window for purchase (add-to-cart to payment-received) and a huge number of buyers.
They have a few more options for this, one would be a lottery system that would provide a “ticket #” or “Coupon” kind of like the wrist-bands for concert tickets. Or, they could turn this into an auction/bid system with a window for bidding.

I just hooked my pcduino v2 up and I was expecting better performance. Web browsing is an exercise in frustration. Just scrolling the display is painful. It feels like the GPU isn’t running anything. I was hoping to use this as a platform for running Processing sketches to drive some art work, but that is not looking likely at the moment. I had hopes that the 1G RAM would help over the Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black.
No public wish lists :(
