-        <p>I bought two strings of the wonderfully hackable <a href="http://www.geholidaylighting.com/color-effects/us/">General Electric G35 Christmas Lights</a>. These strings each have fifty "bulbs" containing RGB LEDs and a microcontroller capable of responding to commands sent over a single data line. Each bulb is uniquely addressable and can be set to a 12-bit colour (plus an additional 8-bit brightness). Amazing.</p>
+        <p>I bought two strings of the wonderfully hackable <a href="http://www.geholidaylighting.com/color-effects/us/">General Electric G35 Christmas Lights</a>. Each string has fifty "bulbs" containing RGB LEDs and a microcontroller capable of responding to commands sent over a single data line. Each bulb is uniquely addressable and can be set to a 12-bit colour (plus an additional 8-bit brightness). Amazing.</p>
         <p>The strings have a controller on one end that has a dozen canned sequences, and an RF remote control to advance between them and power the string on and off. Of course, the main reason to buy these lights is for the <a href="http://www.toddfun.com/2011/11/27/g35-led-christmas-light-review-and-teardown/">hacking opportunities</a>. You just splice the data line onto an Arduino pin and start programming. There is an <a href="https://github.com/sowbug/G35Arduino">excellent library</a> that makes it ridiculously easy, and an <a href="https://github.com/MarkEMarkEMark/G35-MEO-Programs">excellent fork</a> with the most tasteful Christmas light patterns you've ever seen.</p>
