Finally received my Raspberry Pi with some accessories (USB power adapter, HDMI cable, HDMI-DVI converter).

You want mobile hackerspace, have a look at my truck :)

The container is for when we drop anchor on our land.

Oooohh .... nice. A normal car driving license isn't enough, I presume.

Where is the Arduino?

Nope, you need what is called over here an HR (Heavy Rigid) licence.

There are a couple in there, but they are just for tinkering and have no permanent function. I've been designing a monitoring and control network for it for about 3 years now but I keep getting distracted by other projects :)

I did finish a digital speedo for it using a Mega644 but not with Arduino code.

I'm about to add 1200W of solar panels, maybe I'll do something to monitor them.

Not exactly a purchase, but a forum member made this up from my design for an I2C graphical LCD expander thing:

My own expander board:

Just ordered a Panavise PCB holder.

Guess that means I need to make something one of these days. :)

That is for a 30cm wide board. That is a lot of soldering.  :smiley-eek:
Do not PM me a question unless you are prepared to pay for consultancy.

Been away from the forum for most part of the summer :0

Bought a new car, the first new car in my life. So much technology.

Also got adafruit Sd card shield, screw shield, nunchuck plug, level shifter, rugged circuits QuadRam, and motor shield. Might be useful for future projects/contract work :)

Graynomad, having seen your truck photo makes me want something like that too. I don't think my apartment complex garage is tall enough for your truck. Maybe in the future, when I don't worry about things most people worry about, I can get a large vehicle, mod it to my need, and have an adventure, or just park in the woods.

You don't drive cars any more. You make suggestions to it.

My car regularly reboots while I am driving, I lose power steering, brake servos, engine power, lights, everything. It usually restarts within a minute, but thats enough to kill you if you stall mid junction.

Some cars seem to require a texting cellphone as the suggestion interface.
