Today is Pi day
« on: March 14, 2019, 03:46:49 pm »
Today, March 14 ( 3.14 ) is Pi day. :-)

Maybe I will boot up my Raspberry Pi computer and connect it to my 42" HD TV, as the monitor. :-)

You will have to explain that to me.  I can't figure that one, out. :-)

In case you haven't gotten enough pi yet, here is a link to an article with some Raspberry pi projects (in honour of Pi Day).

Thanks for that Link, Mike!
I am very interested in the one project, to run an OpenVPN on a Raspberry Pi B+

I am not sure if my RPi's are the B+, but if not, I will buy a Pi B+
