Comment Re:Cue increase in accidents (Score 0) 825

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

Comment I built one of those (Score 1) 128

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.
