Oh my. This blog is usually a quiet little backwater, ticking along on a few hundred hits a day. And I’m okay with that. But yesterday, my astonishingly impractical QR code clock hit the front page of RaspberryPi.org, and blammo! More visitors than I thought possible. Are there really over 4000 people who read that? Cor, to use a good British comic-ism.
I’ve been blogging for nearly ten years, filed under what could only charitably be called “miscellaneous”. Yesterday, I got 2% of all the hits I’ve ever had. See the tiny little bar just to the left of the big one? Yeah, that was my previous best ever, with nearly 600 hits.
Well you have 100% inspired me to pursue physical computing so I think your adaptation is FAR from impractical! Hopefully I can get a sanitary copy of the nokiaSPI.py file which will actually run, so I can test this bad boy out!
The new qrclock2.zip with the included nokiaSPI fixed the issue! I get the LCD Display Test now, awesome! Now I just need to wait for the LCDs to arrive and then I can get cracking. Really appreciate what you’ve done here, I think this is going to make for countless hours of interesting entertainment for me.
That is quite a jump in hits for sure cobber. I have had at most 949 views for a single posting. I take my hat off to you.
Keep up the good work.
