2019-09-26 (Th) PillarGame

During regular operation, the pillar would simultaneously spin erratically every two or three minutes. I thought this might be a code error where it was sending a nonsensical move command that would get out of hand. The problem could also have been a mechanical mismatch between the magnet sensing switch and the magnets on the pillar. To be safe, I tackled both problems. I verified that an unusable move command would not be issued and added another magnet to the pillar stack.
New magnets

Between the two modifications, the movement became reliable, and the spontaneous moves disappeared. The twenty-six-second video below shows even pillar flow the whole time.
