  • Uh, they don’t say magenta, they say purple. To a lot of folks, purple != magenta. I think if you polled 10 people most of them would say that purple is a synonym for violet.

    I do agree that violet is the correct description.

  • Sure, just convert the var to a a string using the atoi or dtostrf functions.

  • Also, there is a bug in the latest version of the library wrt printing wide characters, I have a fix. You used the same variable (‘j’) to control two nested loops. Easily fixed.

    Also, I can report that this thing works on a teensy++ and the drawing speed is at least 2x faster than an arduino.

  • Dude! Thanks! you saved my bacon! Damn, the libraries for these things keep changing. Thanks for the libraries and the well documented example!


  • I’d complain more about Digi-Key, then. They have similar stuff selling for $10 or so ;)

No public wish lists :(
