Hi, I'm Popeye70.
I picked this handle back in the early 2000's, because I was an avid sailor, and I am born in 1970 (my age? you do the math
I have been toying around with RPi's since the original Raspberry Pi version 1.1, I think. At the moment, I have somewhere in the neighbourhood of 10-12 RPis. I have a couple of Sense HATs, mSata HATs, several one-wire sensors, 2 TemperHums, 3-4 GPS dongles, 2 4G dongles, IR detectors, PiCams, voltage sensors, non-contact ultrasonic liquid level sensor (for tank levels) etcetera. I have the regular 7" display and a Nextion display that I toy around with.
When I play with my RPis, I usually end up with a semi finished result, and then I go tired and do something else. I have had my fair share of proof of concepts just to see what I can do, but I never seem to get around to putting them into production (except at work).
My projects (not a complete list) so far include
- - Wifi probes at work (scanning SSIDs, reporting signal and speed/quality)
- - Boat central (registering temp/hum, SMS gateway to answer status queries, GPS dongle to report position etc)
- - OpenPlotter for boat navigation
- - Magic Mirror
- - Home Assistant
- - Pi-Hole
- - Surveilance camera
- - Server room status at work (temp/hum, web interface, motion detection etc)
This list is far from complete, but it gives a picture of what I do and have done with my RPis in the last 2-3 years.
