This in That. Using the arduino with the rs232 daughterboard

Posted 06-20-2013 at 12:46 PM by peonuser

Using the Arduino for proects. simplest lately was to project a simple web page so that I could take down the internal web server without the users not knowing what was going on. Sort of an under construction page is delivered. Next project is to interface an old composite monitor and use it for displaying messages that can be updated via ethernet remotely.

Installed adosbox on the Nexus 7. Running a lot of my old qbasic programs such as a spreadsheet on it. Not gui, but sure is practical especially in the fact I do not have to deal with android development packages.

The new Black Beaglebone came yesterday. (Father's day present?) Disappointed it did not have composite video out, Oh well, it's other features are outstanding. There is supposed to be a cape that supports vga and sound out, but it is not available readily yet.

Nice to see Richard Branson wearing a t-shirt that touts linux.

Need to set up my laptop for doing Arduino development, but then doing it on the RPi would be even better especially as a wearable computer.

The newer version of the Rpi just came in the mail today (another father's day present also?). Play with it later. There was an article on to install a minecraft server on the RPi. but may take that article and install the server on an old pc instead. More important things for the RPi to do. They had a web cam at Fry's for five bucks. Be interesting to see if it works with motion on the RPi.
