i didn't know hooking up 100 RGB leds and setting up 100 instances of 17 leds and their colors was per instance was damn difficult! i am sorry i am new to arduino! i am starting to feel even more sorry i got the damn thing!
i'm told what i want to accomplish is not an easy thing.. how can it not be - they are just leds!!!
so if i cannot get help with my project (without giving it all away so somebody else can accomplish before me), then to heck with it!
just curious as to what Massimo would say.. would he say it's a hard thing to do what i am trying to accomplish? i bet he wouldn't and i bet he would even show you! but everybody seems to want to push more and more information about ones project before they offer help.. why, so you take over the project (as it has been done to me before a few times)?
really wish i could speak directly to Massimo... i would love to see what he has to say... but none of us will ever be that lucky to sit down with that guy.
