No, I'm still alive and no, haven't turned my coffee table into a big camp fire (yet) 🙂 I was just busy with renovating my flat and some other projects that I'll show you in some future blog posts as well. Therefore I didn't had too much spare time left that I could invest into my 512 RGB LED coffee table project lately. Still I want to give you a brief update what has happened in the meanwhile: I closed my last blog post with basically having the table hardware-complete but still not finally assembled to be able to fix any hardware related bugs that might show up while continue testing it. For some weeks I've left the table in that state, did test various things and fixed some bugs before I put it together and moved it over to my living room where it just does it's job as a good looking coffee table. Since I can't use my notebook to connect to the Rainbowduino V3 controllers any more I had to spend some time on getting my Java software easily deployable to the tables PC and to add a hook into the Linux installation so that it starts up while the PC is booting. Feel free continue reading if you're interested in the details on how I did that and to get some additional insight in the current state of the tables Java software.
