Default Raspberry Pi Heatermeter :-)

Well I have all the parts on the way, will do a couple teaching solder kits first to get some of my mistakes out of the way first :-).

Most everything should be here this week. I just bought the rPi on Amazon, it is only an extra $10 to do so....vs getting in line and waiting to be told you order or some such stuff.

OK I flashed the card with the openWRT image, and with a little help was able to get WIFI setup. Still waiting on some solder and a few other things to come via Amazon.com. Dropped into my "local" Radio Shack Saturday...well TRIED but it is GONE. Once the solder gets here, I have a few "learn to solder" kits from Ramsey Electronics to do...then it is onto the heater meter board.

But setting up the Wifi was probably the most difficult part really, and that is DONE :-).
