Micro PS3 wireless keyboard for RasPi!

I put this in Power Users, but this is probably a better place for this :) If you are working on a Media Center PC, and need a keyboard from time to time, but don't want a huge wireless kb sitting around, here is a great idea. This is a wireless kb from Mad Catz that was meant for the PS3 - plugs ri...

Re: Freedomotic Home Automation on Raspberry

Sorry took so long for me to reply, I didn't see your question about my installation. I am currently running a PC and an Insteon 2413U on Windows XP and Home Control Assistant... It is a GREAT setup - HCA is the best platform I have found so far for the price - but I would love to have a smaller foo...

Re: Freedomotic Home Automation on Raspberry

WOW - I have a large home-automation installation based on Insteon (2413U interface). I would LOVE to be able to use one of my 'Pi's to run the system instead of the small PC that is doing it now...

Is this feasible?

Thanks!

Micro PS3 wireless keyboard for RasPi!

Not sure where else to post this, but I thought I would share. Yes, the keyboard is smaller than the Pi! http://i.imgur.com/bXBkPl.jpg I am working on making a mini, and had this sitting around from an old Carputer project - believe it or not, works like a charm on a totally stock Squeeze image - ke...

Re: Punnet - a print at home cardboard case

Just my contribution - here is the Punnet design as a Sketchup file - I am working to make it an SVG to feed to common paper cutters - so you can print out the case on paper with the design of your choice, then cut and fold :)

Hope it helps someone...

Re: Dropbox-like filecloud

I can confirm this works - I am using my RPi as an owncloud server with the clients on my laptops - not SO crazy about the web interface (I am a Dropbox user as well) but it is a poor man's backup :)
