How about lining up about 10 Peggy 2s and making a huge caller ID so your next-door neighbors can see who's calling you?

Or maybe just 5 or 6 and making a digital clock?

Also, has anyone tried putting 4 Peggy 2s togther (you'll have to invert the top 2) then splitting the signal from a video feed across all four - what is that, doubling (?) your resolution?

Cost prohibitive in the long run, but it would be purty....

I'm not sure how to link up the caller ID data, actually. Neutral

Yep, that's a good idea. A bunch of folks are making their Peggies into clocks. Smile

Also, your hands get tired from all the soldering!

Thats what grad students are for.... oh wait.

How about a Peggy 2 mash party? Get a bunch of folks with white LED Peggy 2s together and see how big a monochrome display you can make - like a LAN party only different.
