…my day job collided with my maker lifestyle and I used your guy’s stuff to make it happen! I just wanted you guys to know because it was thousands of lines of python, some C and a whole bunch of rabbitMQ and out came our shmoocon challenge! I used your thermal printer to run our “shmoocon” challenge this year. It was amazing! We printed 5k “tickets” for our raffle. Each ticket was 1.5″. We had hacker challenges, some crypto, some obsfucated javascript, gps location challenges and last but not least IRC Trivia! I used your Thermal printer, Neopixels and customized your printer case to 1/8″ plexi. All in all it was great and I wanted to thank you guys for your products! Our challenge was a huge success. We had 10% of the whole con playing and generating tickets! It was a lot of fun. Here is a video of the python sending data via i2c to the raspberrypi to tell the digistump to change colors to red as the printer is now (or very close) to be out of paper. Thought you guys might like to know your printer printed for about 2.5 days straight!
