Re: Can RPI survive a power outage?

No the RPi does not tolerate power outage well. Sometimes corruption results in a non bootable system, sometimes it survives.

You may be able to put your SD card in a desktop Linux computer and find some of your files if you are lucky.

Re: UART Communication Problem

Probably would have been better to start a new thread in http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewforum.php?f=44
Have you set your baud rate and other serial parameters to match? The default for the RPi is:
Baud Rate = 115200, Data Bits = 8, Parity = NONE, Stop Bits = 1, Flow Control = NONE

There is no need for the WIFI config to give information about the dongle.

Re: WiFi - USB vs. Bridge

Yes a WIFI bridge will work with the RPi. As with any device connected to a bridge, the bridge is transparent to the RPi and acts as though it is a wired network connection. You will need to first configure the bridge on another computer or use push button config if your main router and the bridge b...

Re: P1-01, does it provide 3.3volts or we input 3.3volts

Pin 1 on the RPi header is a full time 3V3 power source. It not a programmable GPIO. This is connected to the power pin on the sensor.

The DATA pin of the sensor is connected to a GPIO4. That GPIO pin is configured by the program shown in your link.
