I went to TA hours tonight to try to figure out why my LED strand wasn't working. I tested the strand with an Arduino, Meaghan's SquareWear, and my SquareWear, and I think it's just dead. I don't know what could have happened to make it stop working because it was working Friday afternoon: it just spluttered and lit up erratically, then stopped lighting up at all. I did connect it while the Arduino was on, but I don't think that should have bothered it...right?
I found another, longer strand to test, but that didn't work either! I tried that on my SquareWear and on Ione's, and nothing happened. Then Ione's weather-proofed strand stopped working. I'm thinking that there's something wrong with the strands? I can't move on with my project until we figure this out.
