    Still no stuck, but maybe it's not what I thought it was:

    I've been switching between two different usb wal wart power supplies, and switching...

    It's a good thought, I have limited it through code, the very last color adjustment clamps the value no matter what it tries to be, between 0 and 64 which has been working very well via usb. I may...

    with the delay trick and keeping the clock speed at 48 seems to do the trick indoors, I'll have to investigate the car more, there is probably much more noise in that system thanks to the engine and...

    Another thing I just noticed, with 1 power supply in particular the animation on the led starts and then freezes at about up the chain.
