    Hi @@amstan,
     
    I think I know what might be your problem.
     
    In the FR5969 user's guide section 8.3.1 on p. 310, it mentions that on this device, all port pins are not only Hi-Z at startup, but that the pin initialization that you do does not take effect until you clear the LOCKLPM5 bit in the PM5CTL register. This is different than most other MSP430s, so it's an easy step to miss.
     
    If you check the latest TI code examples for this device, this line has been added after GPIO initialization:
      PM5CTL0 &= ~LOCKLPM5;           // Disable the GPIO power-on default high-impedance mode                                   // to activate previously configured port settings Regards,
    Katie

    So I came in the morning to see this delivered on my desk. No notes other than the '43oh' marking on the package. I didn't have a banana handy, so the new Educational BoosterPack MK II was used for scale. 

     
    Thorough examination of the package indicates that the item is most likely a book. Oh no, do I actually have to read this Christmas? Still somewhat confused by the vague description the package and being very suspicious, I compare the unwrapped package to the "Getting Started with MSP430 LaunchPad" book, and guess what, identical dimensions. Well...surely nobody would gift me my own book? Maybe it's another book that happens to use the same format. 
     
    Hmm....I'll be dang'ed. (Can I say that?) Maybe this is a mistake by somebody? Thoroughly confused, I decide to wait a day and sleep on it.

     
     
    Finally the next day, after satisfying the thirst of tormenting his Secret Satan gift recepient, my Secret Santa surprises me one more time, now with the real gift, on the left. Well played @@ILAMtitan, well played you tricky you sir! By the way, both gifts were amazingly wrapped. Now I know who to ask next time I have to wrap something. 
     
     
     
     Alright now to the actual unwrapping: 
     
     

     
     
    Another layer of wrapping. Manual inspection indicates a round object with a small rectangle box protruding at the center. Oh gotcha, I think I know what this is. It must be your other devious creation: http://forum.43oh.com/topic/3689-vetinaris-clock/.  Yes, this can drive @@KatiePier crazy (we share a glass wall).
    But no, @@ILAMtitan just has to surprise me one more time. 

     
     
    16-foot RGB LED strip with IR remote, pretty awesome! It does not come with the 12-V DC adapter though . 
     
    But wait, my fancy $10000+ ESD-protected FPGA board happens to use the same adapter. Sorry silicon development, you're no longer the priority, this desk needs to light up first. 

     
    Pretty sweet bright lights, @@KatiePier  will be blinded by jealousy of my sweet disco-powered office.
     
    Thanks @@ILAMtitan and I commend your Secret Santa trickery, let's see if it can one-upped next year!

    A pendant Launchpad sounds pretty cool, but I'm afraid that with how big it is it would be too much "bling" for me to pull off.
     
    If we're going with Launchpad accessorizing, maybe we should use the LED boosterpack to turn a Launchpad into something like this.

    Probably not - I think this is one of those where they cut them up out of recycled electronics. That, and it's encased in some sort of coating now so we'll never know
     
    Which actually gives a neat idea - someone should make one of these that lights an LED using the energy from the field if you put, for example, your phone near it by using the signal your Android phone sends out for NFC. Then you could encase it in plastic/glass/etc but you could have something on it light up if you put your phone near it, and no battery It would be like waving a magic wand (except you're waving your phone around)
