Raspberry Pi micro arcade machine - Intro The Raspberry Pi. Love it, hate it, but you'll have a hard time denying the fact that adding an EUR35 1GHz embedded machine to the arsenal of the average hobbyist is a good thing. Recently, I got one of the Pi's myself exactly because of that reason: it's always useful to expand your toolset with something powerful and cheap. I didn't get it for a specific reason other than the fact I may have to use it somewhere in the future and it would be fun to play with it. To make a long story short: Ofcourse I couldn't just be satisfied by just hooking it up to a TV and installing RaspBMC and playing some movies... so I ended up spending quit a lot more time than I originally envisioned.

Arduino LCD avec seulement 3 broches It’s clear that I’ll have to connect an Ethernet Shield, an RFID reader, a keypad and an LCD display to the Arduino, so it’s essential that I make the best use of the available pins. I came across this article which explains how to connect an LCD to the Arduino using the 74HC595 8 Bit Shift Register using only 3 pins. The LCD I’ll be using is a basic black/white 16×2 unit from Proto-PIC. Here’s the datasheet. Here is the little sketch based on the code from the article; I’ve changed it slightly. the great ubuntu NAS project Here we go folks. Complete, yet half-baked documentation on how to setup your very own home NAS using free Linux software. I know this has been written about before, and in fact I have pulled from many fine sources (see my acknowledgement below). This is documented here mainly so I don’t forget how I did this.
