Too Many Pi's

Sat Feb 13, 2016 8:35 pm

I've got it bad.

- Pi A+ built in tube radio as Logitechmediaserver.
- Pi A+ similar config not installed in anything (with LCD).
- Pi B which acts as 3G hotspot.
- Pi B which acts as Google Calendar on old TV mounted to wall.
- Pi B breadboarded with thermal probe.
- 2 currently unused Pi B's. Maybe will make Google Calendars and sell.
- Pi B+ in an old radio with Touchscreen, HAT DAC, HAT Amp running jivelite.
- Pi B+ I use to tinker with LCD's ready to deploy as a radio once I find the right case.
- Pi 2 - on bed table used as JRiver Media Player client with headphone amp.
- Pi 2 with PiAware and SDR dongle tracking aircraft overhead and uploading to Flight Aware.
- Pi 2 - several with PIR modules and cameras acting as home security cams.
- Pi 2 with Adafruit TFT screen with Jivelite and USB DAC installed.
- Pi 2 with RetroPie patiently waiting for me to find an old arcade table.
- Pi Zero with Phat DAC soldered to the top
- Pi Zero un-deployed, no mission, no idea at the moment.

Furthermore..........Pi 2 with IR camera module currently in the mail. Also patiently awaiting more Pi Zeros. Going to buy as many as I can get.

Also I bet you anything i left out a Pi or two on my list.

Have you considered going to a rehab to deal with your addiction before it gets worse? :)
The most important leg of a three legged stool is the one that's missing.
It's called thinking. Why don't you try it sometime?

I just got my first Pi, but I can tell I'll be getting more once my budget allows.

The only thing missing is a RPi 2 B for a desktop computer :) .
RPi = The best ARM based RISC OS computer around
More than 95% of posts made from RISC OS on RPi 1B/1B+ computers. Most of the rest from RISC OS on RPi 2B/3B/3B+ computers

I was at a party and everyone had a Pi, then someone ask if I would like to try a bit of Pi. Soon I was looking online for Pi and hanging around with other people who did Pi. It sort of became the norm to have a Pi in my life and I was always thinking of the next Pi and what I would be doing with it.

Its not like I'm addicted I can leave Pi if I want, scuse me a minute I just need to check if any websites have a Pi Zero in stock yet, I've been searching for months. I really need one and they are just soooo cheap :oops:
