Raspberry? by justin | tildeverse BBJ

Anyone doing anything interesting with a Raspberry Pi? I've got one on the way and I always like hearing what people are doing with theirs.

I use mine as a retropie - running retro games. One for a 3d printer, running octopi. Another one for just messing around.

I dunno if it's interesting, but my dad and I have been working on converting one into a digital picture frame, with a small little LCD, that you can make display any picture by uploading it to a folder through ssh or ftp and it auto rotates between all files in that folder. I think it'd be pretty cool to also add movie, animated GIF and wallpaper, and perhaps even screensaver support, but so far all it can do is display static images.

We've also considered getting a newer one and turning that one into a mini-arcade cabinet as well, perhaps with a joystick and such, but that's just an idea so far...

I'm working on cyberdeck (it was a new term for me but browse reddit for inspiration) with multiple tiny
lcd screens. At the moment I'm only working on hooking up the screens but in the end deck should look like 
an ordinary ortholinear keyboard with screens on the top side of a keyboard. 

All cyberdecks look very cool but not functional, mine will probably turn out the same but the idea of it
is to act as macro keyboard with easily programmable visual response.

pi-hole is pretty cool

you can also use pi hole to connect to a .tilde supporting
dns server so you can connect to .tilde domains

I use mine as ssh server to home with:
	docker (installed netdata), 
	nginx ( with various subdomains ),
	git server ( gitea ),
	mysql server ( Mariadb ),
	Portainer,
	bind ( DNS Server ),
Runing debian ( On my mopi )

I have an RPI3 and it works as an excellent plex streamer and a torrent box. One caveat is that it is no good for transcoding and all my videos are .x264 format.

The one I have now is mostly just a personal server for experimenting and learning about Linux and sysadmin stuff.

I have plans to use a Pi Zero as a weather station once I can get my hands on all the supplies (and the time).

Jeff Geerling has a good video on YouTube demonstrating how to set one up as a high-end webcam. I'm tempted to go through that since it seems like a good option for having optical blur.

Yes! I happen to be using the new Pi 400 for all my programming and tilde usage!>>OP

i have an rpi4 that i use for retropie and possibly streaming said retropie-ing
i have a 3b that might get turned into a cyberdeck/small laptop-ish type thing when i get the money

I have like 5 pis: a 1A, 1B, 1B+, 3B and 4 (4GB model).

I'm currently using the pi4 with pi-hole installed. Was experimenting with a couple
other things on there as well but so far pi-hole remains the only thing being
used 24/7.

I am using one as a tor node, one as an archiveteam warrior.

i suggest all of you run an archiveteam warrior on some spare machine. it's a good cause.

so is a tor node, but some are worried about the feds bothering them about it
