Perhaps the Foundation could offer a 12 step program.

Similar to the drug cartels rehab programs...
Hmmm.... Let's see... Model B, Model Bv2.0, Model A, B+, Pi2B, A+, Pi0, Pi2Bv1.2, Pi0W, Pi3B, Pi0WH, Pi3B+. Yup...12 steps.

Compared to other hobbies that grown ups spend money on such as golf, wine, sailing, wood working, racing, classic cars, brewing, skiing, equestrian, camping and others the Raspberry Pi is nearly free. Have to admit, though, that I just ordered a Pi 3B+ for my hobby.

What? You're not going to be the first non-Brazilian to own a blue Pi3B+?
We've got a Brazilian Blue, but it's not a Pi. Look at my userpic (no, that's not one) before you google it :lol:

There are no plussies on filipeflop yet. Luckily. Or sadly.

I wonder how quickly they can turn around their production line.

I have no idea ... Hey cool, my 15th Pi (A pi 3B+) just arrived.
My RPi3B+ is my fifteenth.
Five 1Bs, one A+, one B+, two 2Bs, one zero, one zero W, three 3Bs, one 3B+
Damn Dougie, I thought I was obsessive with nine!

Obsessive? Hardly. I've got at least 11 Pi2Bv1.1 boards alone.

But what sort of sound should it make? A buzz is no good - we'd really like something that sounds like bagpipes, or maybe church bells.

What makes a church bell sound like it does?

So now, before we start working out the details of the project, we have to find out what it's going to do.

The first thing to note is it doesn't sound its fundemental - it only has 2nd, 3rd, and higher harmonics.
But there's a lot more to it than that.

I'm going to start with just half a dozen harmonics to see what it sounds like.

But the maths of even that small number gets complicated, because each one affects the rest, as if you've got a point wandering around a six-dimensional space and you want it to slowly (but not too slowly) approach the origin.

So that's where I am now.
Several months of time-wasting, terabytes of software written, and nothing bought! Not even an LED!
Wait... The overtones in a bell's sound sre actually NOT harmonics, as in they are not harmonically related to the fundamental frequency of the sound... So I think software rewriting is in order before buying anything... :D
