Instructions for Thursday, Dec 12

Arduino Project
Continue working on getting familiar with your LED display. Find the datasheet and figure out the pins. DON'T FORGET CURRENT LIMITING RESISTORS - PUT THEM ON THE GROUND SIDE. 

Andy has had success figuring out the small LED - he can show the group, all together, ONCE, how he setup his display and how he had to rotate it from what he/we thought was initially correct. 

Raspberry Pi

Tony, Arber, Min: try Portable Python. Install it in your H: drive if you have room (or a USB). When it installs be sure to include PyGame. Use the interpretor at the botton of the screen. Try out some code down there and hit tab whenever you wondering what Python thinks can be done with your object/code. Grab the Raspbian card from Arman if he didn't install over it. I will give him a new card tomorrow - please remind me!

Arman: Make some notes on how the project will be setup. Make a seperate not on how the server needs to be setup. See if Canada Computer has a suitable WiFi dongle. Download your media system image. Research how to integrate a remote. 

DON'T FORGET YOUR WORK LOG AT THE END OF CLASS. I WILL CHECK THESE TOMORROW. SEE HOW THIS IS HIGHLIGHTED? THIS MEANS IT IS IMPORTANT. AND IT'S IN CAPS TOO....
