Tomorrow is my day to finally put together my Raspberry Pi kit fully and start playing with it. I've got everything I need, I just haven't had the time to do it before now. I have the base kit, a small TV, the keyboard and a bunch of other stuff to play with.
I found this nice website filled with tons of information on using raspberry pi to build projects. I also found a couple videos on Youtube to help me create these projects.
The other night I worked on a 4 button robot but I pulled a wire so had to solder it but in the process I misplaced the last piece needed to put it together. I'll look for the last part but I still have a planetarium to build. I won't bother with that one for a couple months because it doesn't get dark enough to use for another month or two.
I decided it was time for me to learn a new skill or two so I"m going to build electronic things. I tried doing it years ago when Radio Shack still offered do it yourself kits but the kits disappeared for the longest time and only sold things I was not really interested in. I just checked their website, clicked the DIY tab and the site said it was all coming.
On the other hand, my soldering skills are quite rusty so I ordered a kit to relearn to solder and I"ll be making a flashing European Flashing Siren. Yeah. I can hardly wait. If I manage to put it together tomorrow, I"ll take a picture of it and post.
