NeoPixel display

I just started reading the latest MagPi.

I thought the Foundation was supposed to be an educational organisation.

They have a RESPONSIBILITY to publish correct information, certainly NOT to promulgate irresponsible advice.

The article suggests putting the code in

Code: Select all

/etc/profile
- has the author not noted

Code: Select all

/etc/profile: system-wide .profile file for the Bourne shell (sh(1))/etc/profile: system-wide .profile file for the Bourne shell (sh(1))
This would make the Pi useless for anything else!

Just a few other niggles - this uses import neopixel without any indication about where to get it.
