Kinda niche, but here's a little script I whipped up that looks for one wire sensors (Like DS18B20) and returns the status. Hope it helps someone!

Heck of a radio
An connected radio checking the internet to see when and for how long it should play.++++++Operation Principle: The Raspberry Pi queries a google spreadsheet to retrieve the "wake up" time, the "sleep time" & the duration of the play. A button can also start/stop the radio. Volume control is also available.

+Jim Van Eeckhoutte weird, because all the models with 4 usb and Ethernet port on the end have it .also users really like to be able to see the power lights blinking at the rear of the case

My blog post explains how to write a simple game of Rock Paper Scissors in Python.
When thinking about ideas for a Python tutorial I remembered the old game, Rock Paper Scissors. This is a fun game to write in Python and includes loads of concepts, so makes it an ideal beginner program to write. Lets think ...

Build and run your own Quakeworld server on a Raspberry Pi.
We regularly get asked for the login to Quake On LAN so people can make their own changes or just for curiosity. It’s not ideal for us to be giving out these details, mainly for security reasons (we are giving away the details to hundreds of installs out in the wild). However, we have decided …

No kidding. We way underestimated the demand for this kickstarter. We had to order more product right across the board. But that is a happy problem.

Hello,

I'm a complete beginner. Do I need to know Linux to use a Raspberry pi?
I have a project in mind. I'd like to be able to turn on / off my pool pump from my phone. There is an automation app I'm somewhat versed in... Tasker in the Google play

+Winkle ink Agreed - however my point was that you do not need a raspberry pi to do what +Fran Michalak needs.

If you need wifi control - an ESP8266 would be the way to go. Or better still get electrodragon's IoT relay. http://www.electrodragon.com/product/wifi-iot-relay-board-based-esp8266/#prettyPhoto

Just wire the mains and pool pump and program the microcontroller with one of the sample programs. Very simple and costs only $6.

+Hef Dot my first Linux desktop had 16MB RAM. Of course the 1.x kernel I was running was a bit lighter weight than is typical these days.

Does anyone know if I can use this i2c display on Raspberry?
A snazzy back-lit 128x64 LCD display with convenient mounting holes. Integrate it into your project for retro visuals! The display is driven by an on-board MCU that handles functions like drawing text, shapes, and bitmaps. The connector is a 2mm pitch 4-way JST so you'll need a suitable cable to connect the module up to a breadboard or micro-controller. Features: I2C interface up to 400 Kbits/s 128x64 1-bit pixels Requires 5V supply voltag...

I build demo systems for schools, so need small displays to show various data.
It is easier for me just to use Arduino with the display and connect to Raspberry Pi for connection. Basically the unit will receive strings from Web (or pull from MQTT broker) and display

A "Router Bandwidth monitor" made with a Pi Zero and a Unicorn pHat.
A python script gets the current send and receive rate from the router via the upnp protocol, then calculates the percentage from the maximum bandwidth and lights the LEDs accordingly. Full bar means 100% usage. In case the internet connection is down or the router is not reachable, it slowly blinks all red.

+Connor Lake Yes, these are full RGB LEDs. My current usage is very simple, compared to what the display can do.

Though my next step is improving the hardware setup by integrating the WLAN adapter, like here: https://hackaday.com/2015/11/28/first-raspberry-pi-zero-hack-piggy-back-wifi/

Something I've never tried is to create an Access Point (AP) to build in the Pi a small network. This network can be descentralized or not. If you have internet, it can be useful to filter content from/to a network through the internet, and if you don't have internet connection (you are far away from civilization), can share files, create a web server for testing,... Today we'll see this second case using hostapd with a wireless inexpensive adapter that maybe you have in your desk. I'll use as operating system DietPi although it may work with other Debian based distros.

I'm not trying to lure any body into a LinkedIn account. That's just how it is. LinkedIn has a nice post layout. Sorry if that offends anybody.

The message is still the same: inspire others to also create their own Home Automation/Control System. LinkedIn for me just gives more options on a professional level. As that's wath it's there for.
