Re: Driving multiple servos from the RaspberryPi

Thanks for this awesome program! I was working on hooking up an ATTiny2313 over i2c to drive servos when I found this, completely eliminated the need for such a setup and I'm driving four servos just fine on my robot. Two are actually Vex Robotics continuous-drive motors supplied from 12V (but still...

Re: Camera module from ebay , are they genuine?

I bought this one recently:


I figured it was a clone since it looks different, but for the price I decided to go for it. Seems to work just fine, it streams video pretty well at 720p through VLC. It's main use will be to monitor my 3D printer through octoprint.

Re: MATE for Raspbian

I just installed this image yesterday and I have to say it's quite nice. I've always been a fan of GNOME 2 and was mad when Ubuntu left it for Unity, causing me to switch to Debian for a few months until they too switched to GNOME 3. The Mate project restored sanity to the Linux universe and let us ...
