well, burning the image that everyone recommends seems pointless BECAUSE THEY DON'T TELL YOU WHAT THE LOGIN IS... Seriously, what is WRONG with you people?!?

why does technology hate me so much lately? Seriously, the raspberry pi and groves stuff is acting like shit, the mac is pause as duck and the windows connection speeds for wifi is less than ten, and mostly less than five. did I glance at a cyber squirrel wrong recently?

This pile of carp STILL doesn’t work with ANOTHER gps sensor. I’ll have to use Strava and try to link the data to my phones GPS path. Ducking BS, guys. These ducking things aren’t cheap, Dammit!

I shall try with the robots image for the pi as mentioned in that forum post, but seriously... have you actually tried this sensor and software with a rpi!?! There is no way that this shouldn’t work out of the box... way too much time wasted finagling with BS.

Well, I have a new groveGPS sensor and still nothing. I did find one page that implies Bluetooth needs to be disabled, and UART enabled... there is also the implication that this sensor needs to “warm up”?!? Some code errors with bytes -> str

You need a range of posters with vehicles or people stuck in awkward locations that says “geography would have prevented this”

Parts of a robot-arm-based CD archive system? The slightly round arcs would be the base, the othe pallet holds the arm. Or a robot.

This should have enough visual clues for people at UofC to guess where it is...

Trying this again while another render is taking place. It’s weird... everyone says “use this library” and give plenty of examples that do NOT use this library...

Hey guys, I really do appreciate your taking the time to listen to my rants and frustrations... I was just wondering why the dextergps.pu library isn’t actually used in any of the examples (grovegps, etc) I thought it was similar to how ir-check works but it doesn’t seem to work.

This man should not be a potential minister for any province. Their party is a joke, the very worst that the PC in Alberta have ever come up with. They will ruin this province. But “we” know that. The trick is to inform their gullible faithful. The ones who think wrong things...

Closing the camera app/phone with the doohickey button on the top. The power on/off thingie button. Slide-open camera app, snap with volume, close with power off button.

Here is a case in point. This morning I take my phone, slide the lock screen left and take a photo of a fence and some leaves before putting the phone away. What I get is a photo of some leaves and a photo of my feet. There is a delay in functionality that wasn’t there last week.

An odd flashback this morning to a time waiting in a bank while Mom filled out a withdrawal slip. Remember those times before plastic and online banking?!?
