Raspberry PI Embedded Computer

RPI Key Points

  • The system memory will be corrupt if you don't shut it down correctly, probably even if you are careful. Use an additional USB Drive for storage of anything that you don't want to lose. Also back up content elsewhere. Or with a big uSD, split it into multiple partitions.

PI TO DO

  • Future PI names: floor - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1WsDtn-feuI, cutie-pi, cow-pi
  • Add GPS to coco and use as time source and GPSD. Coco is by the window so the GPS on a USB extension should have reasonable coverage.
  • 12V battery back on Cherry. This is the backup Internet server and needs the alternate power
  • Internet Cache and filter
  • IRC, Convers and Jabber servers running.
