NeoMatrix 8x8 word clock - Using Power Adapter

by dawoodjr on Sat Feb 16, 2019 2:17 pm

Because this project is featured in the latest Make magazine, I thought it might be good if you could clarify one thing in the tutorial.

If I download the code from my computer, and then unplug the usb cable and instead plug in the usb cord from the power adapter, will it run the code or go into bootloader mode?

The guide states that unplugging and plugging in a USB cable would cause it to go into bootloader mode. Does that statement not apply to a power-only usb cable?
