Woot-Off Lights


Woot-Off Lights

People ask me, “What?”, I say Woot! Lights, they say “Why?”, I say “Why not?” They shake their head and walk away…

Can you please add WiFi functionality so they can connect to the Woot server and flash whenever there’s a woot-off?

HAHA! Wouldn’t that be AWESOME! Of course, we’d have to charge $99.99 most likely.

Let’s be honest that would crash the servers

It really doesn’t take much to crash the woot servers… :fire: :fire_extinguisher: :fire_engine:

Let’s have a B0C day.

(Cause THAT doesn’t crash the servers.)

Don’t say that, or you’ll crash the servers.

While I’m imagining that a Raspberry Pi and Arduino setup can indeed be set to automatically turn on the lights, I too agree that Woot’s server will not be able to handle it. After all, a Pi is more powerful than a Commodore 64.

What about compared to the setup which I’m using?

(You know, the one which involves negative resolution.)

It depends on the pi.
A strawberry/rhubarb is a very powerful pi.

I don’t believe that rhubarb has ever entered my mouth.

Too advanced.

And sure, the resolution is negative, but at least didn’t mistakenly order the Commode 64 instead. Talk about a crappy computer!

I might get another Commodore 64.

:frowning_face: You need some Mrs. D’s fresh strawberry/rhubarb pie.
That’s what it took to change my mind on rhubarb.

I just bought strawberries and rhubarb yesterday. Gonna bake a pie.

I caught one of those back in February!

I still have mine on a shelf for whatever reason (64C, I think). Now it’s more of a game to see how long it can take up shelf space. Wonder if there is any data still on the 5 1/4 discs.
