Re: Ruby Gem for GPIO Programming

Hi Jason, that looks good, thanks! (and I also hope sharing is not against the rules :-) I am just starting with ruby but have made a site http://rubinio.org to be able to concentrate ruby efforts.

Re: Using Pi to control 3 SSR + DS18B20 temperature sensor(s

Hi I'm new to this forum, and automation in general. I hope some of you would be able to help me out a bit. I have no soldiering skills, and would like to soldier as little as possible. I plan to program the system in Ruby. Hi Olsenius, I have just started out myself, on maybe a similarly brave att...

This was my "feedback": that the image is maybe not the intent. But given how it was (not) received, maybe feedback is...

Hi Moderator, which part offended you, to call me rude ? That was a smiley at the end, off course I didn't expect you'd jump at paying me. I have done about 20 hours of reading on pi.

Originally conceived of as a fun, easy way for kids...
