I'll probably be here more often as I journey through setting up my pi3, so I'll make an intro.

My name is Mhx Air, (pronounced Mechs like the robot or mechanics).
I've been interested in exploring technology since I learned how to use a Windows 95 when I was 4 or something.
By Kindergarten, I was teaching my teacher how to use hers.
I've explored LUA and C++, a bit of HTML, CSS, and I've always loved bbcode.
I'm huge on using forums, so if you've ever seen another Mhx, that was probably me, on any site or game.
I'm trash at focusing on long tutorials, mostly ADHD, but I do occasionally moderate at, a code free game builder site.
My dream is to learn programming advanced games, or find a team, because I prefer everything but code.
Hopefully I'll build my metroidvania games one day, and become a CEO of something.

I started building a pi to explore a realm outside of prebuilt laptops.
I've used nearly every device from windows, mac, android, ios, atari, nintendo, playstation, xbox, sega, you name an OS, I've probably owned or used it. I've even made homebrew for some systems, so after learning about my pi3, I might look into making a test game for it.
I was a child genius in AP classes, but took on athletics and bodybuilding, somehow making me into a Hulk Syndrome idiot.
Currently struggling to stay intelligent while remaining athletic. Finding balance the is key to success.

My name is Chris, and I'm an electrical engineering student in New Jersey. I also work as a recording and mixing engineer.

I design analog audio equipment, and within the last several years, I've been becoming more involved with programming and computer design.

I'm enjoying working with Raspberry Pi, both as an extension of my interests in audio, and to learn more about computing in general.

I look forward to enjoying this forum with you all!

My name is Andrei, I'm a hardware engineer working for some 11 years now in the automotive industry, and I'm passionate about DIY.
I've heard about Raspberry PI a couple of years ago, but got to know it better just a couple of months ago, when I discovered Retropie!
I guess I have Nintendo to thank for doing such a poor job with the supply of the NES Classic Console, otherwise I may have never really discovered this precious little gem Raspberry PI is. I started right away with Raspberry PI 3 that I actually bought on impulse when I found a good price for a kit containing the official case, power supply, the PI itself and decent micro SD card.

My main project right now is to get to now better both Retropie and KODI. I've been thinking for some time about a small media center that I could use to play my movie collection that I have stored on my desktop computer that acts as a NAS now...

I discovered Retropie shortly after Nintendo announced the release on the NES classic. I planned at the moment to buy it, just for the sake of playing Mario Super Bros. Meanwhile, after reading here and there, I started to look around for emulator too, but I was on the fence for too much. I missed the opportunity of buying the NES classic, and I was not willing to pay double or triple it's retail value. It is then I started to research Retropie in depths and binge watch youtube videos about it. It is then I decided I should really give RPI 3 a try!

So, here I am!

My plans for my RPI3 DIY project are:
- get bluetooth to work (in Retropie, KODI and Raspian);
- re-use the RF module from an old XBOX360 to interface Xbox controllers (complete with sync capability, power on/off and use the on-board LEDS);
- build a passive cooling solution that will keep the Broadcom chip under 55°C even under heavy load.
- I'm also considering modifying at first, later maybe even building my own case that will fit the big heat-spreader I have to mount on the Broadcom chip. My plan is to start with the official case that I aleady own, and then move to something along the lines of Pibow 3 Coupe.

I have little time for DIY right now, as I dedicate most of my free time to my family (married for 10 years now, and I have two gorgeous children, a 2 years old girl and a 7 years old boy), so I'll take one topic at a time, and the first on my list is the Bluetooth topic, as it will also help me refresh the little knowledge I had about Linux 11-12 years ago when I was using it on a daily basis for my projects as a student.

The order of the topics is not necessarily the one above, after fixing the Bluetooth, I may get to the cooling topic. I have a thing for making things run cool... :)

Yours truly,

Hello all! My name is Ken or Kasey, I answer to both. :) . Many years ago I was a MIS (Management Information Systems) or (Mostly In S**T to us vets) manager when computers were just being introduced in many organizations. I loved the early coding and problem solving but after climbing the management ladder I saw fewer and fewer opportunities to pursue those early loves. Now that I am retired, I purchased an Asus Tinker Board ( :o ), but it was too "green". Nothing worked with it. I then purchased a Raspberry Pi and am on my way!

Now then. Had a Pi3 given a while ago and just got round to playing with it. Quite impressed for the size of it. Not new to linux so will try to chip in.

my name is Leo, I'm a retired electronics (hardware) engineer from The Netherlands and now slowly getting to grips with the RasPi.

I made a couple of RasPi based OpenCPN chartplotters with GPS and AIS input, now dabbling/fighting to get a Raspi to act as an PoE cam, see my topic in 'Other Projects' if and when it passes moderation.

I have a wee boat called 'Vesta' which is also my forum name.

Hope to learn a lot from the people on this forum, and perhaps I could be of assistance once in a while ;)

w fr greetings, Leo

Hi all,
I am Burjur and just bought my first Pi (Raspberry Pi 3). I purchased it for my daughter. She is bored at school and thought this could be something fun for her and I to do together.
I am new to Linux but have some coding background (mostly C++)
We just ran Rasbian the other night and she is very excited, mostly for Minecraft.
I am hoping to get some quality time with her and get her interested in what computers can do. I'm open to any ideas :D
