The Chimney repairs continue while I play with the RPi

chimney repairs continueThis post is more to test a “borrowed” wireless keypad that is set up on the Raspberry Pi — I’m not fond of the Logitech K400r.

The photo to the left is part of the ongoing roof project and continuing chimney repair. In order test the Raspberry Pi’s image serving ability, I uploaded it from my iPhone, resized with the opensource Mirage and linked put it in a web serving directory while running nginx as the web server (temporarily). I’ve been playing with the nginx web server instead of the more familiar Apache that I run for work to see how a lightweight Raspberry Pi webserver works in a low power and lightweight computing situation.

It is fun, but not necessarily useful but I do enjoy playing with this inexpensive “toy” computer.
