Brian, what version of Windows 8 are you using? Possibly the consumer preview?

Why 70 years? It might be more interesting if it were counting down to something.

Thanks. I'll see if we have any.

Did you somehow hook that straight into your Arduino?

What would happen when it got to zero?

Hi All, I am thinking about building a led cube eventually. How would I provide the voltage for such a device? 4x4x4 is as far as I'd like to go.

Wow! Of the 10 forums I've ever been associated with, this is the most supportive of the array. Thank you for helping me out.

I apologize for my earlier impatience smiley.
Also, didn't define "bag" correctly. I've got 3 mini-packs of LED's from RadioShack. I've got 21 Assorted LEDs, plus 4 UV LEDs. Maybe "Baggie"?
I found a couple nice places to get led's and resistors for a good price:

Oh, glad you caught that!
That is why I use Dropbox, so I can update my code, typos, etc. Without actually having to redo and re-upload the whole thing again.
Hey, your designs are pretty cool!  smiley-cool

Hello, everyone! I've got some relatively finished code for controlling an led on pin 13 with serial. To use it, you just upload to your Arduino, open the serial monitor, and type 0 and 1 to turn the led on or off. You can also type a sequence of zeros and ones to make it blink in a certain pattern. "01010101110001110001110101010" blinks "SOS" in Morse code.
Code:
// LEDSerialToggle
// Turns on an LED on for one second, then off for one second, repeatedly.
// Based on DarthTater's Morse code for serial.
// Pin 13 has an LED connected on most Arduino boards.
// give it a name:
int LEDPin = 13;
int incomingByte = 0;

// the setup routine runs once when you press reset:
void setup() {               
  // initialize the digital pin as an output.
  pinMode(LEDPin, OUTPUT);
  Serial.begin(9600);
  Serial.flush();
}
// Let's have it turn the LED on (or off) when it gets input:
void LEDToggle(int c){
  switch(c) 
  {
  case 1:
    digitalWrite(LEDPin, HIGH); // This is the LED turning on when you press "1"
    return;

  case 0:
     digitalWrite(LEDPin, LOW); // This is the LED turning off when you press "0"
     return;
   }
 }
// the loop routine runs over and over again forever:
void loop() {
   
  if (Serial.available() > 0) {
   
    incomingByte = Serial.read();
    // read the incoming byte:
    LEDToggle(incomingByte);
    delay(400); // wait 0.4 seconds before going on to our next character.
  }
}

Oh, Cool! I don't have 27 LED's, but I'll see what I can do about it! Thanks, Dude!

I've got an Arduino Mega 2560 and a bag of both normal and UV LED's, and I'm relatively new to Arduino. I've been able to control them with serial (Mostly based on DarthTater's Morse Code program http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,8243.0.html)
after the practice of blinking an led. Now I'd like to do something else.
Does your community have any suggestions for a dude
with a bag of assorted LED's and an Arduino?
