I was an embedded software engineer 90-s to early 2000's, suffered a TBI (brain injury) trying to relearn skills. I am not like my former self and have lots of questions. please be patient.

Hi RPi forum users,

I've built a lazy susan chicken egg rotator for my incubator. The incubator has worked for years but required more work than after this upgrade. I plan to use the DHT_22 once it arrives from China. I have a number of RPIs of various levels in use, a 2011 v1.1 as a print server, an RPI 2 in use running Bitcoin-QT with an external drive, an RPi 3 B+ I have with a hdmi display board using an old laptop screen, and this RPi 2011 ver 1.2 to go into the incubator. Aside from the temperature and humidity from the DHT_22 which will be hopefully going to gnuplot so I can check temp and humidity from my desk, this RPI also has a 16x2 display working with the Adafruit_Python_CharLCD. Would that be referred to as a library or module? The RPi will be showing the temp and humidity locally sent to my desk but also will be monitoring the rotator action. The rotator had six egg slots and each 1/6th segment takes ~99 minutes to pass. I have 12 magnets in place and two hall effect transistors giving me 24 signals per full rotation. Very slow. I have the hall effect modules to a homebrew signal conditioning circuit keeping the output in a safe range and inverting the signal. I had planned to use counters and a magnitude comparitor to trigger an alarm if two signals are missed. Eggs don't roll predictably and there's the slight possibly the wheel will lift away from the hall effect module(s). Instead I hope to have the local RPi look for a missing pair of pluses and send an alarm to the speaker output.

I have no previous experience with Python, nor any C, and a very little in shell scripts. So, I'll be asking for help. Thanks.

Not much to say on myself. I am a rc airplane guy but trying to get more advanced with electronics. I have a few ideas and hope I can find the info I need here. From Texas. Thanks for everyone's information and enthusiasm!!!

Hi everyone, I'm Alex,
I'm getting started with Raspberry Pi, and right I'm learning about the Google Cloud Platform.
Looking forward to being a community.

Hi ! I'm Jean-Christophe. I bought a model 1 to get the children used to see behind the magic of the touch-screen machines but they were not interested because the RP did not have the "real" Minecraft :)

I'm a translator based in Japan, married with 3 children.

I decided to take the dust off the machine and make it run Picolisp, a lisp I can't run on my Mac, but working with ssh being not all the time convenient I decided to connect a screen that my elder son gave us.

I'M David. I do voluntary work for both elderly clients, at a Day Centre, and I also do project at my local Museum.

In the first instance I want to develop a security/surveillance system for my house. I would eventually like to thnk of ways I could use a raspberry to bring some fun to the elderly folk...... thoughts welcomes on that.

Interests include

photography
A natty new flash gun my Dad bought me last britheday
My elderly parents
Motoring
History
feeding birds (another area that might be developed....)
bargain hunting on the net.....

Interests; History, photography, elderly folk, cool new flash gun, old buildings, old Transit Connect, raspberrys.

Hello Everyone, I'm a Raspberry Pi novice - looking to get into Physical Computing. I apologise in advance for all the "basic" questions I'll be asking !!

I think were all in the same boat there.

Hi everyone my name is allan.
I am by trade an electrical engineer in the industrial manufacturing world working with PLC's, Motor drives and the like.
I have started a new career as a electrical engineer building controls for underwater robotic cutters.
I am looking at incorporating a Pi to use for data logging o things like temp, pressure and flows.
Anyway I'm new to the sight and shortly I'm sure I will have many questions about the pi.

So thanks to all in the future for any assistance that you may give me.
Allan

Howdy!

Got my first Pi put together last week. Started off with RetroPie, then burned Raspian full on another card. Today I set up PiCorePlayer and played around with it a while. May look into making a Pi based oscilloscope to aid me in my vintage electronics restoration hobby.

See y'all around!

I am Peter. I live in the UK. I studied computer science at Uni many years ago (glad I learned how to calculate switching currents for magnetic core storage, that's been really handy). I cut my teeth on PDP-11s then Vax, the former used for data acquisition in high energy physics). I then moved into databases before moving away from development altogether. I am back developing though, and an now working with SAS and Oracle (and wishing I had never given up on development). For home projects I dabble with Delphi, Python and R. I have a small collection of Pi's, a PCdurino and a few Adurinos. Three Pi's are dedicated to streaming music using Mamboberry and HifiBerry DACs, one is coupled to a GPS Hat and looking for an application (NTP server for my UKMON meteor camera). Other interests include astronomy and astroimaging (when time and weather allow, which is rarely these days). I am also co-founder of the UK Meteor Observation Network.

Hi,
Few years back, when the online media was just pacing up, there were lots of heads that were banging on the topic of developing a software.
I am Clark Beck and I software engineering play with technology and I learn a lot from my mistakes now I develop my own software. I develop a software https://paytoolbox.com/ which is used for sell your music online, software, e-books, all digital products and made some other software as per the requirement of the work. I am currently working as a software developer for PayToolBox. I am a traveler and I also like to explore things.

Hi everyone, Richard here. I've been dabbling with RPis for a year or so with varying degrees of success! I've got a RPi3 in the living room running moOde audio, and last year I built a project for the local museum which plays a WAV file and controls a smoke generator, based on a Pi Zero W. Getting that to work with Python was a challenge as I'm completely new to Python and it seems to work like no other language I've come across recently! I'm more used to Assembly Languages for microcontrollers. I look forward to joining in here.
Regards - Richard

I'm into vintage and antique radios myself—have a Heathkit IO-12 oscilloscope, '51 Crosely D-25 clock radio, Heathkit EA-2 amp, and others. Would love to hear your progress! :)

Hello all,

I'm a career IT guy but never really jumped in the linux universe. I've been doing a few RaspBerry projects so I thought I would stick with what works for me.
