Ian,
do you plan on making the FW open source like the other clocks? I only ask as i was planning on building my clock into a case which illuminated a glass block, with laser etched item in the middle (it was a leaving gift from my work a few years ago). I was thinking of extending the Neopixel chain to add another 4 Neopixels(for the block), but would have to alter the code to do so.
Regards
Andy

I'm honestly not sure yet if I'm going to open source it. There are lots of tricks in the way the code is written and it took me many months to get it working the way it should.

I'm a bit sick of people coming along, taking the code and getting a PCB made up and going into competition with me. Often they don't know they are doing something wrong, but that doesn't make it any easier to accept. What really put the cherry on the cake for me was when people started to come to me for support!

Having said that, I'm happy to let people have access to it on an individual basis, especially if they have interesting plans, and if they indicate that they understand that "open source" does not mean "public domain".

I'm very aware of the importance retaining source code in a closed circle of people. If you feel that my idea is sufficient enough reason to be trusted with yours. I'd be honoured. And you would have my word it would go nowhere but on my own clock (after tweaking)

So get yourself a Bitbucket account if you don't have one yet, and I'll add you to the list so you can read/write/fork etc. as soon as you let me have the Bitbucket account name.

Or for that particular requirement, Ian could just define the number of pixels to be, say, 8 - it will still work with 4. Although I guess I am assuming here that all the neopixels are treated equally.
