The MaxM’s aren’t as bright as I hoped. Just as well I have two of them ;) For my reference though, this is the flickr photostream of the guy who invented them.
My BlinkMs and MaxMs finally arrived last night. Very cool. It does however seem that sketch that lets the scheduler communicate with them only runs on Arduino 0012, while the sketch for my Ethernet shield only runs on Arduino 0015.
Which brings me to some self beration over buying that shield. I bought the older style ENC28J60 shields, rather than the much nicer Wiznet 500 ones. Oh well, I’ll just buy one of those instead.
