    Sorry everyone, but all year i've been working on my light project and for the last six months i've been watching all the other noobies jumping with joy when there lights start flashing.
    Well i was getting down abit cause i'd built all my equipment and purcheased dongles and no blinky flashy.
    That was until today when i bought a very expensive dongle....and you know what happened than....
    You guessed it....

    Please tell what sort was the expensive dongle that provided you with the blinky flashy result - I might need to buy one
