Ok, I will admit, in the few days that I have had my Raspberry Pi, I am hooked. The more I have researched the possibilities of what RPi is capable of, the more ideas I had of things to try and write about. For some reason, I dont think this will be the last order that I will be making for my RPi.
One of the projects I will work on is adding WiFi functionality to the RPi so I can try using it as an Access Point and for wireless access into an existing network.
Another idea that I want to explore is to use the RPi as a console server to network equipment so that I can get into the console port of one or more devices without having to connect directly into them.
Since I may want to have more than 2 USB devices connected to the RPI or don’t want them pulling their power from the power supply handing the RPi, I picked up a powered USB hub that was on the tested hardware list I have been working off of during this whole process.
Even though I have several 4GB SD cards that I will be using, I wanted the option of having an additional 8GB card so that if I am running an application that can generate a significant amount of logging or I want to leave running for several days, didnt want to run out of room and have other problems due of that.
One idea that I am working on is having an ultra portable RPi setup that I can have a local monitor that is just big enough to see some of the output I may need to see or to bring up an app in the XWindow graphics system that at least one project I am looking at will need at one point in the process.
