I've put my Arduino code and a few other things on GitHub for anyone interested ...

Spencer, while I am just getting my toes wet in programming in this language, I know enough about OOB to know this took alot of thinking. I also know that plagiarism only counts in an Academic setting! :) Still, I admire the work and thinking!

It looks like you are using a ATtiny85 module. Why this one over, say, a WeMos mini? Just curious as I am shopping around.

Thanks for taking the time to answer! I enjoy your builds!

Keep going!

Hi Steve,

If I recall, WEMOS works at 3.3V right? 5V used by the ATtiny85 is a bit more convenient for me. Plus,
I'm a believer in not having more I/O pins lying around than what's needed.

It's also an exercise in designing my own boards should I ever need to some day, otherwise I would have gone with something like this:

I'll keep updating github as things progress. Hopefully by the end of the week I'll be limber enough to get back to the BOP.

I KNEW that!

I wish I could say that was my first dumb question this year, but that would be lying! :D

Thanks for sharing your code though!

Keep going!

Steve ... there are no dumb questions. I could actually make a WEMOS work with my circuit, but would probably
still go with a Trinkit if I had too.


I've updated my GitHub with some more info and the control board's gerber/fritzing/BOM files in case anyone wants to fabricate one at some point.
I hope to be assembling and testing a board soon ...
