Well, it’s that time again. I need to learn a few new things. I am going to start by messing with Raspberry Pis. I purchased a pair of Pi 2s to start a small cluster learning lab. Seems like an interesting project. Not sure exactly what I’ll do with it, but we’ll see. While waiting for the Pis to show up, I stopped by a local electronics store and picked up a Pi B+. It is currently playing the part of a tiny, low powered Linux web server. I plan to finish installing WordPress on it tomorrow and testing it for a bit. I also sent in the 3D print files for a TouchPi (designed by Adafruit) to the MakerSpace at the Edmonton public library. I am planning on heading down there soon to see what the place is all about. I sent them the updated plan for the B+/2 boards. Next up, ordering the screen, charging circuit and battery. My TouchPi will be used to monitor the cluster and whatever I plan to do with it.
Lots of stuff coming including pulling out some old toys like my old NES, HP LX200 and the Toshiba Libretto 50. Time to breathe some life into the old blog, eh?
