Raspberry Pi (rPi) and Pi-Lite led board testing

Got this little gem: http://shop.ciseco.co.uk/pi-lite-lots-of-leds-for-the-raspberry-pi-0805-red/

And this python script to make it talk:

#!/usr/bin/env python

# Pi-Lite init part...
import serial
from time import sleep
baud = 9600
port = '/dev/ttyAMA0'
ser = serial.Serial(port, baud)
ser.timeout = 0

# And from here, the actual programming !

import sys

Use it like this:

python write.py "Hello, my name is Dick"
