Has anyone had problems connecting calls? I was calling around to several businesses and one didn't connect and said that my account was restricted and I should call 611. Is this because of Fi?
Thanks!

I'll try out my other Google voice number tomorrow. I might try calling off wifi just to check on that. Thanks for the advice!

You were talking about growing plants. here's a way to do that with a raspberry pi!
 
More improvements to my Raspberry Pi-based home automation. I looked at a number of options for monitoring water levels in the reservoirs for my plants -- including this "plant wall". A fairly robust solution is to measure water level using a Ping ultrasonic sensor in a manner similar to this excellent article: http://www.raspberrypi-spy.co.uk/2012/12/ultrasonic-distance-measurement-using-python-part-1/ However; I am using the 3-wire version of the sensor: http://www.parallax.com/product/28015 I simply adapted the Python code in the article to switch the single sensor lead between GPIO.IN & GPIO.OUT as required. Electrons are faster than sound waves. ;D

I'm glad I got in when I did. My test scores weren't that high.
 
Thousands of students received their admission decisions over the weekend. The average SAT score of applicants: 2185. The average ACT score: 32.  But the best part was the reactions! It feels good to say #IGotIn to Georgia Tech.

Thanks for sharing this video with us, Kathryn!

My undergrad research!
 
A Georgia Tech professor figured out why mosquitos aren't crushed by raindrops, even though technically it's like a human being hit by bus.

So I'm wanting to take tracking info from a GPS module and transfer via GSM to a server. Does anyone know if this has been done / is there a tutorial? Thanks!
