Hi! would it be possible to update these instructions for Buster?
Sorry, no. I haven't done anything with RPis for a while now (and no longer sell any Pi add-ons), so updated instructions would be best done by someone who's more up to date.

Re: Wombat prototyping board going, going...

Thanks Tim! That's very much appreciated. I'm really glad to have designed something that people have found useful.

I guess I'm a typical engineer - can design products ok, but can't market for beans! ;)

Re: Wombat prototyping board going, going...

If you go to www.gooligum.com and add a Wombat to your shopping cart, you can get an estimate of shipping and see what options are available, to compare the cost of shipping to the UK vs Australia and if the delivery timing will work (although I always take the estimates with a pinch of salt, despit...

They're only available through my web site: https://www.gooligum.com.au/raspberry-pi/wombat-proto or Tindie: https://www.tindie.com/products/gooligumelec/wombat-prototyping-board-for-raspberry-pi/ ...

Re: Wombat prototyping board going, going...

OK, the remaining boards seriously have to all go by Christmas.

So I've cut the price again to US$10 each (plus shipping).

That's less than half what it cost to build these prototyping boards in 100+ quantity.
So, selling them off at a significant loss, but they just gotta go...

Re: New videos on setting up Pis available

Thanks for the feedback! Sure, you can setup a headless Pi with no serial console, and adding the files to the boot partition is a great way to deploy a setup that you already know is working. Nevertheless, I sometimes make a change that stops the device booting - and then I really appreciate having...

I've written up (yet?) another how-to, this time on a new 16x2 character LCD from ITEAD Studios.

There are plenty of small TFT LCD touch screens which mount on top of a Raspberry Pi out there, but ITEAD Studio's "RPi 2.8 TFT Add-on V2.0" (snappy name, eh?) caught my eye because it has a pass-through for the Pi's GPIO pins (out to the side, because you wouldn't want to mount another board on top...

Re: Setting up a Pi for makers - SSH access, I2C and SPI ena

Yes, definitely.

If it's a different Pi I'd want a different hostname, and I'd still need to go through the update/upgrade process (because the image would become dated), but sure, it saves a few steps.
