Found a useful tutorial on using this tiny temperature sensor with the Arduino. Using the Raspberry Pi to program the Arduino using ‘ino’ and then monitoring the serial output with ‘ino serial’, I got a temperature reading and the whole thing, including wiring up, took me less than 15 minutes!
Thank you kindly to the original author of the post, markal.
Next up from that same blog is using a PIR motion sensor!
Very informative post on Dr Monk’s blog about connecting an Arduino to the Pi and reading serial information using Python. Helped me have a very successful evening getting a Hello World experiment working. Saved my Pi from the bin, too!

It’s always nice to see people mixing their own distros. I’ve not tried this one out but it’s very small – just a 230mb download!

A brilliant forum thread over at Stm Labs which shows the cases people are using for their Pis.
how about cases, what are people using?.
Just came across this. A good round-up of just some of the fantastic things that have been created with the Pi since it was launched.

Well. Right now I’m thinking of chucking everything in the bin.
I’ve got one 512MB Pi that freezes and/or crashes randomly. And now, apparently, my Rev 2 256mb board won’t boot unless I squeeze the SD card slot.
I’m particularly upset about the 512mb because it was going so well. I’ve tried swapping out everything, from SD card to wifi dongle to power supply.
I know I shouldn’t let the frustration get to me, but when the hardware just simply doesn’t work, not much recourse except the bin.
ARGH. Picture on left actual picture of my face this evening! (No, really, surprisingly close!)
