Tweak IDE color Theme?

by SavageRodent

Hay guys
I recently installed IDE Dark Theme, but i want to change one small detail, which bugging me.
The bracket highlight is hiding the bracket it is highlighting (I said it was a small detail :) anyway so i want to change the color, but this doesn't seem to be an option nor can i seem to deactivate bracket highlight by setting its value to "false" or simply deleting it.

This is what i take to be the relevant bit of code from the attched .txt file:

bracket/brace highlighting

editor.brackethighlight = true
editor.brackethighlight.color = #006699

Any thoughts?

why is frequency of neopixel signal faster than PWM of the Arduo

by SavageRodent

hay guys.

i was playing around with an oscilloscope and decided to compare the wavelength the neopixel data sinal with that of the PWM at, what i thought should be its highest possible frequency?

I'm using an arduino uno for the neopixel signal and a arduino nano to run the a sketch (see below) for the PWM. Both boards have 16Mhz clock speed so i assumed that wouldn't be a factor.
Anyway, as u can see in the picture the neopixel data sinal (blue line) is at a much higher frequency the the PWM (yelow line).

My question is, why is this?

//PWM code
void loop() {
