Remove minor black background residues in the instructional text


Some of the instructional text leaves minor black background residues when it cycles through the messages so assume this is the complete screen re-draw issue. So i guess ideally we’d clear that bottom

Not really sure why an additional row of pixels ontop of some of the text appears as assumed it would only be the x width of black background that changed.

Review the power-off cycle


Currently using D2 connected to OFF on the Pololu in the outdoor boxes so just need to go over the code for that. Should be included universally I guess but with indoor boxes ignoring it.

Bit mixed up over the resistor on the PololuOFF to be pull-up or pull-down Currently its configured with 10K to Pull-Down as that seemed to make sense as when the reed swtich is open (in proximity to magnet ie lid closed) it will be a ‘normally low’ signal ie no power and then when magnet is removed ie the lid opens, it will allow power to the Pololu which will signal high and the resistor pulls it back down cleanly afterwards…

Not sure if Ive mixed this up in my basic understanding of pull-up and pull-down

Staff box running instructions and troubleshooting guide

  • Outdoor box is attached with an external solar battery
  • LIfting the box lid activates the box ready for play, closing the box sends it back to sleep
  • External solar battery will need to be periodically swapped every 2 days/weekly with the identical battery stored in the office
  • Carefully disconnect the battery after opening its waterproof bag
  • Connect with fresh battery and reseal the bag
  • Use only the supplied power supply, to recharge batteries, it has a raspberry logo and a Milecastles sticker on it
