I have been using Linux on most of my computer since 2007. Before that I have been mostly using Windows. My first PC was MS/DOS + windows 3.11 on a 486 when I was a small.
I am now working as a Linux and Network Sysadmin. Currently I mostly mange Linux and other Firewall as well as basic network services such as DNS, DHCP, Proxy, NTP.
On my home network I run a Pfsense Router on an low power PC Engine APU board and a home-built storage server using FreeNAS and the ZFS filesystem.
I am trying to acquire basic electronic knowledge: Proper soldering, understanding circuit and components, using a Oscilloscope (…).
I've also been playing with Arduino.
Beside some (ugly) bash programming, I also have some python programming knowledge.
Raspberry Pi: Great little device for hacking.
I also have a Pandora which is a hybrid between a mini Linux computer and a gaming device. http://openpandora.org/
And the “ultimate” geek phone: my Nokia N900. Do you known of any other phone that has a keyboard shortcut for opening a terminal out of the box ?
Using the GPIO on the Raspberry Pi
Try go get the TM1638 working on the Rpi. Waiting for it to arrive (ordered from Dx)
RPi forum: some code to get TM1638 to work on the RPi: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=10787&p=119969
I am now running my RPi as a dedicated Squeezebox player. I am using Squeezeslave and an external USB soundcard. I have a small 2x15w class D board from Sure electronic connected directly (no preamp). Works great for now ;)
For future project…
