I have a fantasy about going on a date at some rooftop bar that has a view of the spire, asking her what her favorite color is, directing her attention to the spire, and making it happen. I suppose I'd settle for changing the sign on a Portland office building, though ;)
I was in NYC a few weeks ago and a friend had the app and was able to change it. It was really cool. We could see it pretty clearly from his place in Long Island City.
I don't know how exactly he got an invite, but it wasn't too special. We also talked about how it would make for a great date idea.
Steady blue, clear view.
Flashing blue, clouds due.
Steady red, rain ahead.
Flashing red, snow instead.

I never remember, is it In fourteen hundred and sixty-two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue?
But of course I remember remember the ninth of November.
Sometimes, though, I'm not sure if I'm correct with I before E except before C.
But I can definitely remember the order to get drunk in using Beer before wine, all is fine; wine before beer: oh dear.
the fifth of November
the gun powder treason and plot.
I know of no reason
the gunpowder treason
should ever be forgot!
Now it is is still in use today as a watch-tower as well as for signaling weather forecast and maritime navigation information to the ships on the Golden Horn at night.
Panic makes some of the most beautifully designed OS X software, so I hope they release something new and relevant soon.
Just spit-balling, but they should make a native OS X application to provision and manage infrastructure (AWS, Google Cloud, Azure, DigitalOcean).
Unison is niche, but the only good piece of software in its category as far as I'm aware.
And Transmit is one of the best pieces of software I've used. I unfortunately have no use for it, but many people do.
Finally, I'm pretty sure that Firewatch did ok, so I'm sure that's some funding for them too.
I think Panic are in for the long haul. They're never going to be 'huge', but I think they're going to be financially successful for years to come.
It's probably a good idea to add a queue and a minimum time for an specific configuration to run, although, that probably defeats the purpose.
(Apparently the permit for the sign doesn't allow "rapid flashing".)
Still curious about the color configurations though.
I grew up helping him install signs. It's a pretty neat thing to be involved in.
This is also great advertising for Panic ;)
@lachlan We thought about a webcam for a minute or two, but realized it would be pretty logistically tricky (there’s not an obvious place to mount it).
Even more than that, though, we think it’s kind of appropriate that you have to visit Portland to experience the magic.
So, come visit us!
No traction then, weird. Didn't know HN would accept dups within days.
