It's a funny old world when you come to think of it. Steve started off treating his rings as a single daisy-chained element. When we swapped our code and were chatting about this, he realized that I was treating them as three separate entities.

I just received an email that Steve is thinking of moving to treating his rings as three separate entities because he thinks this will make his code easier to write, offer more flexibility, and be more understandable.

By comparison, since my clock also has a spectrum analyzer mode in which I want to update all of my pixels at the same time, and to do this as often as possible, I'm thinking of moving to treat my rings as a single daisy-chained element.

You have to laugh :-)
