Building a Raspberry Pi 3 Case from Acrylic/Polycarbon

We tried to be professional about it making our own raspberry Pi Case. But that’s lame. So you get to see us screw up and still win!

This is going to be more of a document and guide of our trials and errors in how we designed our Raspberry Pi 3 case. We did learn a lot about the general manufacturing process of trying to get one done professionally and even though we failed in some respects we are at least able to provide to you better instructions then just making something in theory crossing our fingers and hoping for the best.

Archived – Mono 3.x basic installation and the problems of 3.x

Mono basic installation for older linux kernels will now be archived.

This entry is apart of the OpenSim installation tutorial dealing with how to install a utility named MONO. It explains on how to get the various programs required for running a virtual world within your arm based processor. These notes are only here for archival reasons and are stripped away from the primary tutorial to avoid version confusion for anyone new to installing OpenSim onto your Raspberry, Banana, Orange Pi ARM systems. Continue reading if you want to see more.

AirPlay on my Raspberry Pi

AirPlay audio only on the Raspberry Pi

Airplay¬†(or in previous revisions from apple this protocol was called “AirTunes”) audio is the ability to transmit audio from your smart phone device (The Apple I-phone does this natively and android users can actually download a plugin protocol for this) to another device which is hooked to a home stereo system. I know there’s countless of articles talking about how it’s done. But since this is my blog I sometimes use my blog as just a random dump on how I get things going so in case I forget with my countless other projects I don’t have to look for a particular site to show me how to get it working again. It’s just annoying to find a site that talks about it just to have it disappear on you. So! Without further delay, my short little guide on how it is done.

Raspberry Pi – CGMiner – Bitcoin adventures.

Raspberry Pi with CGMiner making the bitcoins.

My raspberry Pi runs almost 24/7 with some of the projects that I have done in the past such as OpenSIM and installing Airplay onto it so that I can send music to the amplifier to my living room and even running some P2P programs to get my latest linux distros faster. Because it runs on a 24/7 basis¬† that means that I’m pissing 3 watts of power non-stop. I decided to out my Pi to work on getting me bitcoin currency.
