Today i realised something great, i can combine 2 of my loves/hobbies into 1, how cool is that ! ? ! What is this other hobby ? Linux ! I have always been a fan of Linux since i was introduced to it about 8 years ago by one of my friends, so much so that i didn’t use MS Windows for 8+ years up until the start of this year and my epic new PC (8-core i7/16GB RAM/4GB GTX970) which i had to get a Windows 7 license for because “i’d already spent way too much money, so why not that little more and see what i’d been missing !”.
I have a Raspberry Pi Model B an Odroid U3 and a Beaglebone something or other (can you tell i haven’t used it much ?), i also have 2 x 9″ touch screens (Odroid Vu) and something called an Odroid Show which can be used to display various stats as well as just images depending on its use. I am going to use my Odroid U3/Vu/Show on my Vertical Hive. I plan to make it so i can remove all of them if necessary and also access any cables i may need to. The Odroid Show will be used as a “working” display for a control panel or possibly a hive guys/grills/trade post/bar menu and the Vu will be used as a massive billboard to display various propaganda/news/topical events. The best thing is that the Odroid U3 runs many Linux distros and Android so its basically a mini PC/tablet built into my hive !
I’ll stop with the Linux chat now as this is my other geeky blog 😀 I finished the stairs today and stuck the 2 bookcases together with “No more nails” and a couple of brackets for good measure, apart from a few ladders most of the “Sectors” now have a complete floor plan. Other than that i haven’t progressed too much. I do have an awful lot of electrical bits available to me (a full pc plus the pics below) what should i do with them ? Just cut them up and plaster them to the wall/ceiling or rip things off them first and then cut them up ? Any suggestions are welcome as i have no idea what to do with them i just know i should use them.
Right, time for a load of pics to try and help try and explain that crazy mass of nonsensical text up there ^^ comments always welcome, thanks for looking !
