A While ago I got a new shipment. It's a 8X8 LED matrix kit for Raspberry Pi. The idea is that I'll assembly the kit and use it to practice programming on the device - and then eventually I'll just replace the LEDs with resistors or something.. at least that's the theory. I'm still missing something and that is the motivation to start. I know once I start, things will move quickly as I cannot leave any problem unsolved, but also, as I know that this project will consume all my free time for so ...
