I drove a lot of small country roads as well. Two lane roads that are about as wide as one and a half US lanes. No speed limits. Occasional blind hills and turns. Farm equipment occasionally on the road.

Country roads actually have an implicit speed limit of 100km/h unless stated otherwise. http://de.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Datei:Zeichen_393.svg&filetimestamp=20060729152001

from 10 16x16x(red, green) modules. Problematic was the (theoretical) current required to drive the whole assemblage: 512 * 10 * 20mA = 102 Ampere, at 5 Volt is 512 Watts Although I'm not really sure whether the modules were even able to fully light all LEDs at once, they had a built in shift register. At first I wired them directly to my parallel port and later wanted to wire an Atmega32 to it, but caused a short while playing around, bricking the development board. The modules rest in my basement, since.

Real Users find the one combination of bizarre input values that shuts down the system for days.
