Raspberry Pi "recipes"

Post by 0v3rz34l0u5 » Sat Feb 23, 2019 2:13 pm

Over the next week I will be tinkering with several new "recipes" for the Raspberry Pi.

These will be:
  1. AirPlay Receiver - stream music from your iPhone or iPad to it
  2. Amazon Alexa - a homemade Alexa device!
  3. DOSBox - an emulator for all your favourite DOS games!
  4. OnionPi - Wireless AP with built in Tor. Stay anonymous online.
  5. Pi-Hole Network Ad-Blocker - block your old games
  6. RetroPie - another emulator but one which support 50 gaming systems!
  7. SETI@home - help the Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence BOINC project
  8. Steam Link - play games on your PC using a game controller and your TV!
If anyone wishes to know these recipes once I've tinkered, let me know! I can post them here or tell you where to download the pre-configured images from!

I don’t know why but I love tinkering and learning. I hated it at school. I guess now it’s on my terms, I can do it at my pace. 😊

It sounds as though you have an analytical mind which you need to keep busy but interested. Like a restless engineer!

It could be the Asperger’s but I do need to be doing something. It’s fun!

That's definitively it !

The problem I had with such things at school was that the task felt arbitrary, and often the 'right' way was very rigid. I hated any programming stuff because of that.

Fast forward 15 years and I've automated great big chunks of my (nice, safe) job in VBA and enjoy having a problem I suspect I can automate away and spending a day or so hacking away at the code to make it happen.

Actual problems and a freedom to go at it any way you like is a much more enjoyable way of learning for me.

On the Pi front, I'm using mine as a PiHole and OpenVPN server, and it just sits there and performs those tasks perfectly. Shame PiHole can't block YT ads without massive faff though.

I definitely think the tutor makes a big difference. Teachers at school want you to do well but they have some many people in the class at different levels it’s hard to find a happy medium to help them all.

I struggled with Computing at A-Level (and eventually gave up) and came out with a D in IT at GCSE. When I did my Open University,
I found that learning at my pace made a massive difference. Also, the tutors could work more on a 1:1 level so could help their students better. I was often told that programming in the real world is very different to how it is taught.

Raspberry Pi have opened their first shop in Cambridge and I think that is also have a part to play!
