Code a thon.

Started writing the routines (as I have spare time) for the choreography of the computer controlled light strings on the Xmas tree. Everything from Kitt (the tv car) to just random display of lights. I have about twenty ideas so far but have only coded five or six. If I could have about forty would be optimum. Since I am using the parallel port to control the strings, lots of simple binary is involved. Still have to do all the soldering for the set up.

The last set of temp sensors came in yesterday. I will deal with them later. My hands accidentally crushed the thermometer I was working with. Have to be more gentle.

Added some logic to my computer controlled antenna program. Thought of getting a computer connected compass, but no need to splurge right now.

Watching the numbers on my instructables. All for now.

Update: coded all 20 routines.
