Looking forward to hosting #CTOforum event this evening on “Journey to Cloud”... what anecdotes do *you* have to share? @psychemedia @goatchurch I like them for following tutorials, but for development it doesn’t seem quite right... I’… @psychemedia @goatchurch @goatchurch have you linked notebooks to MQTT, so you have an “in” topic and an “out” topic to chat over?? @psychemedia I use them for almost all my python stuff, which is mostly qiskit (quantum computing). @goatchurch is…
@ruskin147 Safety driver...? More like a person walking in front with a flag ;) @trig11 @Martin_Adams It’s a wonderful thing! @Martin_Adams You know about the press and hold space bar thing, right?

@holly_cummins @LazzaroChris The back should say “We do” ;) @iowct @RunMoreEatMore @GCHQ The oregano is unusually crunchy for the time of year, Vladislav! @RunMoreEatMore I’ll send pizza...! @woodpunk @tynemouthsw @Lillput You are most welcome :) @woodpunk @tynemouthsw @Lillput awesome! @woodpunk @Lillput I think I’d have a real dilemma with the keyboard... maybe build electronics to scan the matrix… @woodpunk <gasp>! @BadDogDesigns_ Marvellous! @BadDogDesigns_ Oh, probably not (now I think about how they work inside). Unix time? @BadDogDesigns_ Could they show the date?? @BadDogDesigns_ A thing of beauty (again!). Do the dials go round?Finished the Power Meter clock.. Question is, do I use it to tell the time, or disarm it! Made from lots of period…

Retweeted by Andy Stanford-Clark @embedded_iot Ah yes, I bought some of those ages ago...lmk if you work out how to reflash them, please!
@embedded_iot @p0welly Wow, tags on *all* products?!! @andysc @ForrisHilier @ste5eu But this one goes upto #1FFFFFF OK, it isn't quite the same as " this one goes up to 11" but you get the idea

@ForrisHilier @ste5eu Definitely this. Avoid #FFFFFF ! @davekmorley @ste5eu Yes, I often power a #gloworb (Wemos plus a single neopixel) on a cheap power bank for pretty… @markusvankempen awesome. Epic battery <wink>#MakersHelp what’s the physically smallest #Arduino-like device that can light a NeoPixel? Pro-Mini? LilyPad?? Needs to be 5V power @ben_everard @ste5eu Write a blog post: that will be really valuable data :) @ben_everard @ste5eu Running power to the far end also helps. @ben_everard @ste5eu Is this with long runs? @ben_everard @ste5eu here’s the start of a 360 LED run on my recent project… @ben_everard @ste5eu they’re very forgiving: you can power them with 5V and control them with 3v3. Unless you have… @ben_everard @ste5eu short wires and a 1000uF capacitor have been the answers when I’ve had those kinds of problems… @ste5eu No, it looks after itself rather well, and neopixels are quite forgiving :) @DrLucyRogers @ste5eu You do! @ste5eu See any number of @DrLucyRogers’ Wemos projects, eg at @ste5eu Make sure you’re using a pin that’s not being pulled around by something else. D2 is a good bet. @ste5eu Yes, from the Wemos 5v pin. @ste5eu Neopixels? I have never had a problem not using a level shifter... and powering them with the 5v line. Cur…

@embedded_iot @iotwatch Physical-Digital-Twin ... :) @iotwatch We’ve done quite a lot of DT predictive modelling on our @IBMIoT HQ in Munich. We should chat :) @clarksn @amcewen @DoESLiverpool Yes, I agree.

@tanurai that is SO cool @grifferz Great debugging there, Andy! @amcewen @DoESLiverpool I wonder if my TRS-80 model IV still fires up?? @amcewen @DoESLiverpool I wonder if you could connect it, across that new fangled “internet” magic to @clarksn’s PET?? @tanurai @nifty1a It will be interesting to see if it lights up in such scanners...or even in the RFID hoops in shops... @tanurai That is so cool! Does it glow when you pay by tap?? @dawnahukanna @JoeBaguley Stay safe, Dawn!
Wow. Just wow!

@CleaCoulter ha, brilliant!LoL, or “hay storage” as anyone who’s ever been near a field would know! @BBCNews @teknoteacher that’s great - you could sell those! @Steeleybobs @AWRunFitness just take it gently and increase gradually :) @marketingtom Connaught Rooms, apparently @andysc
