I have just coded a fairly big program that also gets accelerometer data from the Wiimote... It all works however periodically through the program I get warnings that say th...

Re: Is this correct in electronics terms?

Hey there,

Thanks for replying...

OK! How does this sound?

In electronics a 'bus' is simply a way of communicating between multiple devices. In our case we will be using it to send data from the Pi to our OLED display.

Hey guys and gals, I am writing up one of my recent tutorials and I just need to check that my understanding of SPI is correct. I have written this: What is SPI?

In the 'import' section of your code add this line:
