I love it! And a very nice write-up too :) I'm definitely a fan of using
the lights to show different kinds of information (weather, time, scores,
etc.) I really like your weather display. Maybe you could have chasing blue
lights when it's going to rain, hehe.

As a hardware nerd, I especially like the photoresistor RC timing trick.
I'd have never thought of that, but it makes perfect sense. I'll have to
keep that in mind for other projects :)

For those curious, the adafruit article Chip linked to explains how you can
read restive sensors (like a photocell) using a Raspberry Pi's GPIO pins
without needing an external Analog-to-Digital converter module. For simple
sensors, this would be a great way to interface them to the Pi on the cheap.

Thanks very much for sharing! Please keep us up to date if/when you make
any changes/additions!
