Cool, where did you source the LCD from if you dont mind me asking?

What controller does it utilise?

Looking awesome, I've been messing with a bit of rpi+teensy stuff of late as well.

Will you consider a colour LCD in the future?
Nice, good luck with your project!

No, I am not going for a color LCD in the future. The first attempt on this did, but then I decided to go as close to the original as possible on this try.
I have searched high and low for this almost fitting replacement monochrome LCD ;)

Ooh, looks pretty nice. Gotta check this out.

I have been working on proper saveing/loading, and it works OK, except for this one bug.

A whole 'nother problem i have been having though is that even though loading from disk->ram is done in a separate thread, and thus has no effect on performance, loading ram->vram must be done on the main thread, becouse openGL is not thread safe. This causes the FPS to hiccup when new chunck need to be loaded. (I make sure to only load one new chunk into vram per frame, so its not one long frame, but rather several *longer* frames in a row. I dont know if i will have to mask the hiccups by having a few frames between each ram->vram transfer, or if some actual multi-threaded solution can be found.

There was one (in a local chain) that said:

"Banana's bye the each - $10"

Here are my problems with that:

Bananas cannot own anything, let's face it.
Someone needs to go back to first grade and learn homophones.
"by the each" is just widely-used incorrect English
$10 for three bananas is just too freaking expensive.
Hardware / 16x8 Clock ucc1
« Last post by Juju on Yesterday at 07:51:32 pm »
Just some clock I made with my Arduino and a 16x8 character screen. It's linked to a script on my computer that feeds it time and current temperature over serial port, might add some more weather details soon. Anyway, it's a pretty nice thing to make, very useful if you're too lazy to check The Weather Channel all the time.

I'm not sure if I'm going to update it anytime soon, or if I have the means to make a video about it, but eh, I have a blurry webcam picture.
How does one figure out when he needs h64 or 32, though?

That's what I'm trying to figure out.
Contests / Unofficial Codewalrus Contest #1
« Last post by _iPhoenix_ on Yesterday at 06:30:43 pm »
(Well, Juju told me I could do this, so I guess it is semi-unofficial)

This contest's topic is weather. To be eligible for a prize, you must make a program or create an IRL creation that involves weather, and topic showing your progress, with the "[UCC1]" tag in the title
The contest will last 4 weeks, and end on the 17th of August at 11:59:59 EDT. No late entries will be accepted.

If you choose to make an IRL creation, you must create a video describing your project and its features.

If you choose to make a program, for any platform/language, you cannot release source until after the contest

*keep your entry SFW*

All entries are to be submitted to in a PM to me, @_iPhoenix_

You will be judged on these criteria, although your entry can be penalized at the discretion of the judges, to some extent:
- overall project detail and completeness, including functionality and design.
- interation with other users, including the reception and distribution of feedback.
- overall ingenuity.
- number of walruses involved (just kidding, this will not affect your score)
Contest judges (i.e. me, but you can request to be one if you have over 100 posts, just ask in this thread. Only 2 more judges will be accepted.) are not allowed to participate, and cannot win prizes.

As for prizes, printable walrus "diplomas" will be issued to the top three winners, signed by the contest judges under their usernames. (If you are accepted as a judge, PM me a pic of your signature, signing as your username)

Have fun!

If you have any questions about this do not be afraid to ask in this thread!
