Brilliant!

I hope everybody is being extra good this year because things are extra tight at the North Pole this year and the IMF are forcing the big man to recheck his list a third and fourth time to identify extra savings.

I'll have to come up with some ideas. Wireframe Snowflakes seem to be the only things that come to mind, but I'll try harder.

Don't know if I will be able to do something about this. There are other things pending (like my CPC part for 30 years megademo, end of the year deadline, but I don't want to code this after xmas) and not enough time and mood.

Though, I just remembered an effect idea I wanted to try since last xmas compos, maybe maybe.

Also not sure if I'll get time for this one, if I get the other things out the way I might be able to do a little something snow related maybe :)

OK, I've got an idea - something I'm sure nobody else will have thought of. Now to flesh it out...

awesome stuff guys!

ive been working on something a bit different the last few nights.

i want too expand my lcd project i done a few months ago for this so ive glued 3x3(8x8 leds) led matrixes together to make a large screen. ive ordered loads of max led driver chips/wires and capacitors to drive everything.

so basically i want too run my christmas demo on my own aurdino microcontroller hardware and upload via youtube when im done is this ok/permisable i will obviously post all the source code for the project as well.

Good news Rbz, thanks for organising the compo :)

I have an idea, so hopefully I'll get it sorted in plenty of time. There seems to be a lot of interest in the compo, so should turn out to be good one!

 :goodpost: I'm in

To verify this has to run on Windows right? If I make a Mac demo , that won't be accepted however I can record and submit the recording ?
