    Default Raspberry Pie Time

    I got my raspberry pi yesterday and it time to start playing with it. Will download files tonight and see what happens. Hope to run 2014 show with it. Don't know if anyone else on the site is going to use one for 2014 or not. If others are, maybe time to start a section on the Raspberry Pi here for the Christmas Carolina members. I know about the Falcon Christmas site.

    Good luck for 2014 and have a Happy New Year.

    I got one before Halloween and managed (just barely) to get it up and running in time. I was just driving a couple of strips and a single LOR controller (in DMX mode) using a 6804. The main thing for me was the portability in this instance: I was running a singing pumpkin at my campsite at WDW. The campers go all out with their decorations, and to the best of my knowledge I'm the the first to ever run a music-synchronized light show at Halloween (there is a guy who does a pretty amazing one at Christmas). Anyway, being able to put the Pi and pixel controller in a tote outside next to the display, and then control everything wirelessly with the laptop (or iPad!) was pretty nice while camping. I was not keen on running wires from inside the camper, or leaving a full computer outside, so the Pi was a great solution.
