Re: Attaching Weight scale or Force resistive sensor to PI

Thanks for this Andy - I've been wondering how to weigh stuff using a Pi for ages - I'm going to give it a go with the Dymo scales. My business involves a lot of weighing and bagging small quantities and I'm looking to automate as much of it as possible. Dymo USB scales work OK a bit expensive, but ...

Re: Errors in the Element14 "unofficial camera setup guide"

The one here: http://www.element14.com/community/docs ... -pi-camera is still wrong

That's the one that's linked to on the Element14 product info page and the paperwork that comes with the camera module if you buy from them.

Errors in the Element14 "unofficial camera setup guide"

I thought other members of the community would like to know of a couple of errors in the otherwise excellent installation guide from Element14 (http://www.element14.com/community/docs/DOC-54413/l/unofficial-guide-to-getting-up-and-running-with-the-raspberry-pi-camera). Firstly, on page 6, it should ...

Re: Simple Protection

Thanks for the feedback, it seems I need to learn a bit more before coming to conclusions.

Re: Simple Protection

http://elinux.org/RPi_Tutorial_Easy_GPIO_Hardware_%26_Software I'd seen that, thanks - but there was no explanation of the relative pluses and minuses of the different protection circuits. I ended up here:http://www.petervis.com/Raspberry_PI/Raspberry_Pi_GPIO_Header/Raspberry_Pi_GPIO_Header_Pin_Int...

Simple Protection

If I wanted to configure 4 GPIO pins as output only (for example, to control a shift register), am I correct in thinking that I'd achieve some protection against the most likely miswirings through a simple diode between the GPIO and whatever I'm sending power to, which would prevent any current flow...

Re: Easy access to your Pi from Windows using MobaXterm

The problem I had was that I wanted to set up a Pi at a remote location (accessible via wifi) and run a python script on it. By using MobaXterm, the script terminated each time I exited the session. TightVNC did the trick for me following the tutorial at http://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-raspberry-...

Re: Learning Electronics

Thanks everyone for your replies - I found the Electronics Club site very interesting and have ordered a couple of projects to get started with.
I'll look through the other resources once I've had a go at building a simple circuit.

Double click to run

On Ubuntu, the following Python script allows me to double click its icon to run the script in Terminal (having set the Properties to "executable") #! /usr/bin/python print "Hello World" raw_input("Press ENTER to exit") If I copy the file to my Raspberry Pi and, again, ...
