It's not very fancy but here is a video of my Android app I'm submitting for my course project.  It basically has one activity that has 5 colored rectangles that change color when you drag the slider.  It has a menu that will open a dialog box and tell you about the app and will let you visit a museum web site for more information.  This took me ~20 hours to write (from scratch).

aloha don

we dropped off susie's car on tuesday morning and i put her on the
plane tuesday afternoon.everything went fine. we had a good time at
the grand canyon (we drove in the back way and missed all the traffic
coming from LA.) haven't done much at chris's except help him with the
three sound systems he has and we've been setting them up every day at
the little league parks for the tournament they are having here in
brea. I think i'll be all baseballed out by the time i leave on the
8th. I'm just not used to the fast pace any more.It's great to see all
the cousin's kids coming out well so far in their lives. Uncle Jack
has been a great help to stabilize everyones life here in brea.

AlaMode  - 
 
I'm trying to run the AlamodeTester.py after cloning git@bitbucket.org:wyojustin/my-pi-projects.git using the Adafurit WebIDE.  I get the "IOError: [Errno 2]'No such file or directory" on line 12 which is a def init(self, address, bus=smbus.smbus(0), debug=false):

I'm not a python expert but the smbus is/was imported so I don't know which 'file' it is looking for.

Any insight would be appreciated.  I'm running on Raspi 2.

Got my Arduino to say hello world on the LCD display I hooked up to it. I like using the Raspberry Pi to program the Arduino.

I've been using my antenna for the last couple weeks. It's working great. It's made by a local Raleigh company. Here's my blog post about it and the installation.

Last year I did it in 34:48 (gun), so I cut 3 minutes off this year. I did try this year. Last year I just ran. My goal was under 30 minutes (chip time) so I didn't make that. Maybe next year. I did however break 10 minutes miles. My pace for the 5K was 9:58 per mile.

I wrote up the install of my dehumidifier I installed last week.  Be sure to click the photo to see the album and read the captions.

what are you sitting in the recliner for? You should be working out in
the new gym you're going to build so you can keep lifting things like
the dehumidifier. lol

I have a Alamode and it's been working fine mated to my Raspi B+ board.  I got a Raspi 2 loaded a new SD card with raspban and setup the Alamode per instructions at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1HBvd3KNmcs632ZgO6t_u37B-qwV6P9o9FQe62lGkumM/ but when I compile/download Blink the compile is clean but download completes with a red message "avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding".  

I got a 2nd SD card and loaded Raspban on it and went through everything a 2nd time and got the same error.  I've not tried my working SD card from the B+ but I will try that shortly.  Any ideas?  Thanks,
Drive

In October 2013 I replaced my 25 year old heat pump with a new Rheem Prestige Heat Pump. It is a two stage heat pump with a ECM variable speed blower. During the summer we left the unit's fan on so that the blower ran continuously (it sped up and slowed down as needed, but never stopped). I had hoped that would solve a damp condition in the master bedroom closet, but it didn't. I had removed the door to the closet and left a small fan on in the closet but that didn't completely solve the dampness problem either. So the next thing I decided to try is to install an air return in the back of the closet. That will do two things. One it will make it easier for the blower since there will be less restriction in the return, and the air will turn over in the closet whenever the blower runs. This album documents the construction and installation of that additional air return.

Sounds wonderful. Cold here. I actually finished my 1st book of 2015
already. Glad the Kindle is working for you.
