I created a wall of digits randomly going from 0 to 1 but I thought I'd like to try it with blinking lights.

The plan is to create a series of 8 "lights" in a row and then flash them on an off like a modem or router and then duplicate that and create a wall.

I have created a circle and made it flash on and off by adding an oscillate with square wave function to the opacity. The next step was to replicate that and then offset the random function but that option doesn't appear to be there as it is with the number generator.

Any ideas anyone?

(Quick joke: there are ten kinds of people who understand binary: those that do and those that don't!)\

Flash them off and on by using the sequence replicator behavior, adding opacity, setting to 0, through, random, with lots of loops to speed it up.
