Re: camera shutdown timer help

Thanks Gordon. I'm just now trying it out, but it seems to work well. I'm seeing one weird thing and I haven't changed anything but the code.

Re: Picamera capturing to a different folder

Here's my picamera capture: camera.capture("/media/usb/" + time.strftime("%y%m%d_%H-%M-%S") + ".jpg") Seems like I initially tried the same thing you're trying where you pass the whole line as a variable (camera_file) and I couldn't get it to work either.

Re: Oh no, my school is going to teach MS SmallBasic!

<t>I've used SmallBasic for the last two years to teach programming in high school. It works fine. It's free. Most of my students don't have electricity at home. Less than 10% have computers.

Re: Im selling my pi

<t>It is interesting, as I read through this thread, how many different groups there are that feel they should have received some sort of preferential access to first batch product.<br/> <br/> Some are hobbyists that may well be contributing to the next image.
