So, many of you got a Raspberry Pi for Christmas? Do you have any idea what you're going to do with it?
I got an arduino uno. My dad found I bought one right after he ordered one for me. Now I have 2 arduinos and a digispark which is a miniaturized version of an arduino and uses a modified arduino ide.
So I'm building a progressive methanol injection system with one of them for my truck. The other I'm thinking of building an electronic returnless fuel system for my old 80s mustang. I'll use a pressure transducer to monitor fuel pressure and pwm on the fuel pump to regulate the pressure. I think I might add a map sensor to make the fuel pressure dynamic with the engine load, but that will be a future project. My current one is the meth injection for my truck.
Also Beaglebone black master race here.
I did! I got the adafruit starter kit too, so I think i'm probably just going to do a few little starter projects that i find online and then afterwards once i have a grip on what i can and can't do i'll figure something out
(i would have started already but i wanted to finish my current project first...)
Hijacking faggot OP's shitty thread.
What kind of hardware (and where) should I get if I wanted to build system that on press of a button would send me email, start recording on webcam and maybe say out loud how many unread messages do I have?
Would put this button to be pressed when door it opened.
Also if movement sensors are cheap would be cool to get something like that to be activated when there's movement on my yard.
Would this be a good Pi case?
You don't need to know how to program. Just go on sites like this http://www.instructables.com/tag/type-id/category-technology/channel-raspberry-pi/?sort=VIEWS and check the tutorials
Put newest OpenELEC on it (4.97.3) and use it to watch movies and chinese cartoons. Works fine with about 80% of my stuff, but still has problems with some 10bit stuff, not with all of it though. Does anyone know a good case for it? I got one of those starter kits and the included case sucks shit, it's too small and the top won't fit.
Does the projects that work on the B model works with the B+ model as well?
Without altering stuff?
Like the PiRatebox and Pirate Radio?
I think of getting one as a hobby.
And I'm not majored in IT or CS BTW.
I'm thinking of making a portable samba server.
Is this Wifi adapter can do what I need?
broadcasting SSID to connect to I mean?
Also Is there a way to make the RPi automatically share whatever USB storage media plugged in to it?
Not sure about the first question but I don't think being able to work as an access point is hardware-defined, so it's probably fine.
As for the second: just make the folder that drives mount to (either /media or /mnt) a samba share.
You don't need to program. It's as simple as:
1. Install an operating system on the Raspberry Pi. Raspbian is a good choice.
2. Attach an external HD or whatever you're serving from.
3. Install samba, configure samba to share whereever you mount the external HD.
4. Assuming you configured the share to allow guest access, now any computer on your wifi network (Windows, Mac or Linux) can browse to the shared folder.
I'm not going to tell you how to do those things because there's enough guides already if you google it.
Yeah, all HorribleSubs files run fine (or at least they should) since they are just rips from CR or similar sites with no fancy encoding. A bunch of "proper" releases (by dedicated fansub groups) do not work, others do however, so far it's been trial and error for me since they don't usually put the "10bit" in the title of the file.
Other than that it works quite well, the newer OpenELEC versions run smooth, only opening the files may take a while.
>just make the folder that drives mount to (either /media or /mnt) a samba share.
Thanks, I feel stupid for not thinking of this.
I guess I haven't got linux file structure yet.
Ok, how long does it take to play the file?
Also you play them from a connected HDD or from a NAS?
So is the TP Link 723 capable of doing that?
Also can I SSH from phone into the pi from it it can do that?
you mean it can browse and play the files without password to access?
>you mean it can browse and play the files without password to access?
Yeah. Though as your router will by default block incoming connections from the internet, it will only serve to people connected to your home network
>it will only serve to people connected to your home network
That's what I intend to do.
