Thanks for posting these tutorials ... they will be very useful additions to the various
RaspberryPi courses and workshops we are working on (duly acknowledged of course) ...
I do like the cobbler (congratulations on being so quick of the mark) ... and have all kinds of uses
for it ... not just breadboarding some of the Microchip components in your tutorials, but also
for adapting a whole host of Arduino like projects.
I think that your choice of Python (via the rpi-GPIO module) was very good ...

Hello!

Are there any forums directly on the Adafruit site? I ran into a problem with the tutorial for getting the LEDs to blink for new mail.

My terminal claims that my RPi.GPIO is installed and up-to-date but does not even register the command "import"

Love the site and the tutorials!

Have you tried many searches yet?
One good place is http://goosh.org/
When the search prompt appears, input 'raspberrypi.org', followed by fairly obvious things, such as 'gpio'.
Enjoy!

Good place to start is the wiki: http://elinux.org/RaspberryPiBoard
Links to datasheets etc on http://elinux.org/RPi_Documentation
