remember when you bought it you had dozens of cool ideas regarding what to do with it? yeah, now it collects dust somewhere on your shelf doesn't it?
not really, my sons use a 4 as a desktop pc, and i still use my 3 as a basic home server
I used it as a tv box until I realized there were better solutions
No, I did use it for something cool. It's a timelapse camera in the window of my family's cabin, taking photos throughout the seasons so we can see the snow fall and then melt and leaves bloom and then wither.
>>87474186That is cool. Pray tell more.
>>87474157>now it collects dust somewhere on your shelf doesn't it?nope. one for pihole + unbound and vpn to homeone as a webserverone as a remote backup serversoon will plant one at my friends house as a residential vpn
>>87474157Still polishing my project. Turns out it has 5V on UART instead of 3.3, so I need to re-test my controller and maybe use a USB one.
>>87474157nope i just bought a pi3 a week ago. arrives in a couple of days
>>87474184Which better solutions did you find?
I have a pi4 server set up to stream plex content
>>87474157Kinda. Turns out what I needed is an Arduino, and even they've got more powerful STM32 versions now, eventhough I don't even need the extra power.They might be practical for something with a proper display and touchscreen, but 20x2 LCDs are all I've ever needed.
>>87474157My friend gave me a Pi Zero, I never even took it out because to even use the damn thing you’d have to buy a bunch of adapters. That actual requirement price is too close to a Pi 4.It was free

>>87474823>it constantly crashesIt was an SD card in my case. Crashed after five minutes of rsync, too.
>>87474932my issues seem to be power-based. the microusb connector is too flaky to handle the current it needs
>>87474416i have an ups too but it only supplies up to an hour
Nope. In fact mine's overloaded and I need to get more of them.
Use mine as a home server, doing all this, as well as a backup location for another external server. Works great.
>>87474157My kids use these as computers. My daughters love them!
I never bought one. And never will.

>>87474157Mine runs my automated home turrets. It uses OpenCv to target anything with a blue helmet. In roblox of course
>>87474157Haven't bought one yet but considering it to run Pianoteq in my zombified Clavinova midi controller. Also thought about an aquarium or vivarium controller but I figure that would be more fun with an actual microcontroller.
If it had full PCIe x16 support (or even x8) I could see getting one and using it as a dedicated Folding@Home machine. GPU doing all the work and the super low-energy CPU just feeding it the work units. Sadly they are limited to PCIe X1 and even then they don't support GPUs on Raspberry Pi OS.
>>87474157I long for the time to set it up for its application and THEN get another one to set up for the other projects of which I don't know which will be first. Have the todo list and everything!
>>87474157I had a Pi 2 Model B collecting dust. Now it's a PiHole. Not too shabby. Might get another Pi and make a security camera system.
>>87476685>dedicated Folding@Home machineDo cucks really?Just mine eth instead you fag.
yep, it sits on my self collecting dust and doing internet routingif you see this post it has passed through my pi
>>87474157I have two. running syncing piholes and tor. Work for me. Ran OSMC for years too and smokeping.
>>87474157Yes, because everything that I could have done with it is handled by a container on my home server.
Not sure I'd really NEED a Pi for this but I like the idea of building a toy that's just a bunch of arcade buttons and levers and when you press them there would be a super low res screen, maybe even something like a light brite screen, that would light up or play a small animation or something. Or maybe no screen and just get light-up arcade buttons or something.
>>87474478>you don't need a home server>doesn't post lolifucking imposter
>>87474157I daily drive mine. It's the only computer I own until my boards and my screen come. 4g ram is enough to run compilers for personal projects, though I really want a 8g compute module 4.
Yeah, my cool idea was to have it as a fucking around machine. And sure enough, here I am, fucking around on it.

>>87474157Good way to bait people into sharing their raspberry pi projects with you.
>>87474157You fool. I bought 100 of them for a project and sold them for a 400% markup. Easiest 10k ever.
>>87474157Mine is used to run pumps out of my 150L drums of Vodka wash into my boiler. I can make literally hundreds of liters of Vodka and not pay a single dollar in tax lmao. People that don't know what to do with them are retards
>all those söycore applications for home servers, media centers, dns and vpns how the fuck did you live vefore you bought your pi? I have lived my life without ever needing any of aforementioned
>>87474157Kinda?I've got a Zero on pihole duty, a Pi 400 which I use with a recycled ipad screen for background noise YouTube videos or looking walkthroughs up when playing vidya on my TV, I gave away a Pi 4b with OSMC to replace my girlfriend's Chromecast, and I have another technically collecting dust while waiting on a half-decent external desktop HDD sale to make myself a poverty-tier NAS.When Xenoblade 3 comes out I'll especially be very glad to have my shitty little coffee table PC, because I know what I'm like with big open world games.
>>87474157My 3b+ gathers dust, as I've been only using it as an SPI flashing tool. I also used it once to verify my C application works just fine on ARM.
>>87474157I never bought one. Like many of these toys, it's a solution looking for a problem.
Have several Pi4 that were meant to run a headless kiosk that read badges from a barcode scanner, did a simple web request and pushed the response to a thermal receipt printer (serial). But they don't work for shit because the python serial module is a piece of shit that relies on constant polling, and they end up having to be rebooted about every half hour because it borks the connection and leaves the port it in inconsistent state. Basic rewrite of the printing module in C is more stable, but still needs work to get it fully implemented, so they are just sitting on the shelf for now.
>>87474157No, I remember wanting to buy one and knowing exactly what I'd do with it, but I'm poor.
if they were like 10 theyd be justified but $140 lmaoanything you can make with them is going to be more expensive than what already exists
mine is on a "le printserver" duty currently

>>87481502the design for this thing is probably out there anyways.how hard would it be to just copy paste this shit and have assembled in china lol
>>87476086appears to be something called 'flame'https://github.com/pawelmalak/flame>Flame is self-hosted startpage for your server. Its design is inspired (heavily) by SUI. Flame is very easy to setup and use. With built-in editors, it allows you to setup your very own application hub in no time - no file editing necessary.
>>87481856yeah i dont know. oh well atleast get an irange pi or sionething.
>>87476685>they are limited to PCIe X1RockPi 4 has PCIe 3.0 x4, but for compute stuff you could probably get away with even a single link without affecting performance. That is of course assuming there's no problems with lack of space to map the memory region because of BAR issues.

It's even completely silent and boots in a few seconds. Only having 32GB SD card is a drawback but I usually just store everything on a HDD connected via usb if I need more storage. That or I use my LANs nfs.I'm even using my PI to allow blocked devices on the network i'm connected to connect to the internet with IP fowarding.I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

i use it to redistribute an open wireless network across my household.
>>87485579No, it doesn't block ads on YouTube.It's great to block trackings domains, basic ads, maybe if you want to block a certain site.

>>87474157This, but an FPGA board instead.
>>87474157I have a great idea, but I don't have 200 dollars to buy it.
>>87474342>Which better solutions did you find?An actual tv box. If you just need it for Kodi you should look into LibreELEC and CoreELEC.
>>87498839>you are a fucking idiot>>they run raspberry pi os which is the best fucking distro by miles>>you are a fucking idiots>fuck off >go play with your windows prole.you will never achieve anything, worthless idiot>go flip a burger>go do your moronic sales job idiot
>>87500310Aren't FPGAs insanely expensive?If you could cram one into a Pi Zero sized-board I'd buy that for 100 bucks, but there's a reason the MiSTer nerds picked a subsidised learning platform like the DE10 Nano for their vidya cores- and even that little $200 thing has developers run into the upper limit on logic elements.Would like to DIY myself a nice video scaler though.
>>87499542You're fucking something up because I get 108MB/s writing to my Pi4s 2TB external HDD connected with a USB3 to SATA cable via SMB. You're using a powered USB hub? You got it plugged into the USB 3 port?
>>87500187RPis are better because they have their own Linux distro and its well supported by the manufacturer and community.
>>87476644I do this for pianoteq and it's fucking tightSo much less friction to just have an always-on device that's super stable running pianoteq, it basically transformed my VPC1 experience. Would recommend.Also have a few that I use for audio. One is a streaming source for my hifi system, and the other runs an audio interface to do ADC for a couple of record players, performs RIAA in the digital domain with camillaDSP and then sends this audio across the room via wifi (a bit of latency but that's nice to keep my more sensitive record player from being able to pick up anything from the speakers) so I don't have any cables. I think I have four total and only one isn't currently doing anything?
>>87475962>pi3>with a wifi dongle, isolated wireless camera AP to collect images from the cheap creepy chinese wifi cameras i have scattered around without granting them internet access, then re-hosting just the images onto its ethernet-side interface for me to get at safelyPlease post details, only reason I don't have proper cctv around the house is because I refuse to use chinkshit botnet cameras that store everything on fucking aws and require botnet app to access.
>>87485563What's the point of this? I didn't think running a dedicated server would show up as normal cs:s on steam. Otherwise I have no idea why you'd need to do this.
>>87501479i didn't make a build log or anything, but the basics are:i drunkenly bought 1 unbranded who-knows-what chinkshit ipcam for cheap from wish in a series of bad judgements. it was really rudimentary - powered up, it had a web interface to access the picture on - in the form of a JPG that updated once every quarter-second upon inspection, lol - and was making all kinds of mysterious requests to external services that i was not ok with. well, i bought 5 more after seeing this and thinking i could "manage" them.pi3 got a tp-link wifi dongle, and i used hostapd on the pi3 to emit an AP i connected the cameras to painstakingly with my laptop. i later discovered they had a config file you could edit and put onto an SD card to slot into them. do this.wrote a totally homebrew node app to pull the JPGs from each camera every second or so unless i was watching on another totally homebrew trash react app's as a web panel, where it would speed it up to the same 1/4s it generated the frames at. it saves the last 50GB in named folders so i can look back if needed.it's really ghetto but it serves my needs fine. i can ssh in to my router and jump to the pi3 to remotely view from anywhere.and if some undesirable folks come up to my house (or do more) i'll have clear evidence, which is what i cared most about.i know for a fact there are open source projects camera manager projects that would probably serve me way better, but i like the duct tape and spit kind of systems if it means they can be 100% me and 100% understood
>>87491002Just buy a used thin client. You can get a device that’s just slightly bigger than a pi and that’s way more powerful for a fraction of the cost. Raspberry Pis are just for redditors to circlejerk over.
>>87501956Except no, thin clients are still expensive used (in Australia) whereas I bought an RPi 4 the other day at RRP (in Australia).
>>87501727Nice, thanks for the write-up. Good to know this is possible to do, it's how I roughly imagined it but couldn't be bothered to try out in practice to get disappointed.
>>87502027https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/154988621805Literally took me 2 minutes of research
>>87502096>ancient piece of shit that doesn't have gigabit network speedsAnd this was supposed to be proving something?
>>87498837>What sort of camera did you connect to it?The official Pi camera module. I see they have a HD version too now but that didn't exist back then
Use it as a Plex media server and cancelled all my subscriptions
>>87501434>You're using a powered USB hub? You got it plugged into the USB 3 port?no it was a 2.5" drive so i just used the usb port.yes it was connnected to usb3.i think i was the drive bc it was an old SG from a laptop. and the consant r/w it did ontop of the transfer
>>87474157>remember when you bought it you had dozens of cool ideas regarding what to do with it?No,>he doesn't buy it first and think of an idea later>yeah, now it collects dust somewhere on your shelf doesn't it?Yes, since it's bought
mine is running a file server, a media server for my autistic son, openvpn, my webserver. It backs up my family photos. It is an essential backbone to my household
>>87500310I had hoped the next RPi V had a built in FPGA, at least for the educational value.>>87500981>Aren't FPGAs insanely expensive?Price varies enormously, depending on features, speed grade and number of gates. DE10-Nano is not too shabby and therefore very popular. sorry, cannot link to source, system thinks it is spam.
>>87494319thanks just got a wyse client
>>87504989>Price varies enormously, depending on features, speed grade and number of gates.The Altera V FPGA on the unit has 110k LE if I recall. But the DE10 platform is notable because it comes with an ARM processor for handling auxiliary functions. I don't know what that's worth in terms of raw parts, but it's probably more than $200- and Terasic used to sell it for $105.Which is to say, I think it'll be a good while before those people ordering them for retro video games get a new platform for some kinda future MiSTer 2.0.
>>87499056I was around in the time when 64MB RAM was amazing. 4GB on a lightweight OS on a thing the size of an Altoids can still feels like a miracle to me.The only reason I really want an 8GB CM4 is so I can use it as one of the development boards in my cyberduck (and daily drive it with a different OS on a different micro SD card), but everywhere I look online that model is sold out until Feb 2023 and the CM3 is sold out until Feb 2024. Unfortunately I might not be able to make code for either of those for a while.
>>87474157nah, just one. and it still serves its purpose.
>>87474157I plugged in a couple of external harddrives, and setup some cron jobs to automatically rsync gzipped backups from webservers i manage for business clientsit literally sits in the cupboard under my stairs and i get paid a bunch for "automated backups solutions"it just keeps the last X days of backups, which usually also includes sql dumpsdepends on the client for the number of days they want

>>87505327What printer are you using? I'm tired of these bullshit DRM chip ink too low bajillion dollars for some magenta ass shenanigans.
>>87505356A Fuji Xerox laser from 2007 for color prints and a Brother H1110 for black and white.Toners for both printers are around $10-15 on ebay
>>87500925Whats the upgrade then? The raspberry pi 4 runs libreelec, can be controlled by my TVs remote, and can play h265 video.
I have a 3+ I turned into a little cyberdeck-esque portable computer. It's encased in an old screw container I had lying around with a small screen and bluetooth laptop. It was a fun little challenge, that at the time I used as a remote desktop to my main pc. It did that well enough, however it wasn't reliable in terms of charging or un time- things I'd find important if I ever had it away from home. My own design flaws made it hard to turn on and off.It was a fun little project, but literally any laptop would blow it out of the water and i wouldn't feel like a fuckwit or a terrorist pulling it out at a coffee shop. It's been gathering dust ever since.I'd like to find a better use for it, or at least the pi itself, but I already have a few laptops [hooked up to the tv, data backup and travelling] and am too dumb to code.
>>87476387Even the CEO of Microsoft would never say that.
>>87474157I have two. I use one as a server all the time. I use the other one occasionally. Last time I used it to drive my xmas tree lights, and it was pretty dope (picrel).
It sits in pic related with Emulation Station set up on it and a bunch of game ROMs. Connected it to a TV and hooked a wireless 8bitdo SNES style controller to it.Still collects dust because I barely ever touched the games on it, but it looks nice next to my other consoles.

>>87511069no they don't stop shit, but they do provide proof of things. if a year ago i had photographic proof of my insane ex's new boy crossing state lines to pound on my door with a gun about stupid shit that went down 15 years ago, i could have done something about it - from proof for criminal charges to evidence for self-defense. as it was, i could reasonably do nothing because i could prove nothing. i won't be caught off guard again.
>>87474157Kinda because I dont have time for projects. I do have one running an opensprinkler instance for irrigation, one for a 3d printer, another is gonna be used for circuitsetup (monitor energy usage). I dont use them for servers, I have some beefy machines serving web pages, jellyfin, etc
>>87511291I don't believe you without video evidence sorry.
>>87474157yeah, it was a waste of moneyi used it to flash the firmware on my thinkpad though and installed that libre bullshit made by some tranny though. i guess i figured if there was a backdoor in the firmware, then i'd rather trust some random tranny than gill bates
