What happened?
« on: June 16, 2017, »
It seems like this community is slowly dying off :(.  Is it due to people just getting too busy with real life?

I really haven't seen much activity on here.  There hasn't been any Co-ops, or updates on the status with the Lynx Express components and potentially making the chip change to SMD for members?  <yk.. I haven't seen Robert on the forums in a while, but that's not to say that he is on and has responded to people.  I personally, just haven't seen him.  Maybe I am needlessly concerned, but I just wondered.

RJ has a life and after spending a large amount of time invested in creating products for our light shows he may have moved on to other things in his life. In the mean time there has be an explosion of other DIY technologies out there.  With that said with no new developments in the Lynx line and no coops many have moved on to other boards to stay up to date. The fact the RJ has kept this board up I think is a very nice thing for him to do.

I understand. And I am always reminded of this wonderful place  :) Every time I look at my Aeon clock.
I miss all the great discussions.  :'(  Miss all the wonderful people!!!
I two check back once in a while just to see if anything is going on.

And I agree thanks to RJ for keeping this board up.

I believe there is still a niche for DLA.  Some people like building their own gear.  Also, not everyone wants a single controller controlling 100k pixels.  There seems to be lack of focus on port per prop concept and I think that could be the niche. 

That said, I think designs could be updated and improved based on how David Pitts took Pixelnet with web based programming etc.

To me being port per prop my ideal controller would be like a smart hub where each port was as transmitter for smaller 4 or more port receiver boards where they are powered. 

I bet others have some seriously good ideas too. 
Sam, who is happy he flashed his etherdongle with newest firmware!
