Weekly doing

What is a Squidwrench weekly doing? It is our weekly meeting where you, the meeting-goer, bring a project you are currently working on, or interested in, researching, and you do/learn about/create/teach others/etc said project in the company of others. Pretty much, it's the tinkering you would be doing at home on your own, but now you're out doing it socially. Don't have a project? Come anyway!

    Either I'll keep working my way through the wireless hacking chapter in Violent Python (, or I'll bring in this project from work ( It's an auto-installer for various secure comms tools (just Windows now, OSX port in planned).

    So a couple years ago I got this on kickstarter - It's effectively a 180 RGB Led array in single billet aluminum with an arduino that acts like a clock.

    The arduino as a clock part is not so great, as the creator didn't realize that just measuring ticks on an arduino isn't really being a clock. So what I'd like to to is figure out if there is a way to connect this to and external time source to keep it sane. Keeping a raspberry pie connected to it via the FDDI port would be completely acceptable. I'll bring all the parts and mostly want to talk this through with folks. Looking forward to the meeting.

      The schematic shows a DS1307 clock chip in there, so the time *should* be more accurate than a tick counter... but it's running from what looks like a generic[masked] kHz crystal, so there's no telling.

      Come to think of it, you could wire up a WWVB receiver. The Totally Featureless Clock weighed in at 12 kB, which could be a bit heavy for that '168, but the time code parser might fit.
