The good thing about spending all your money one month

The next month, you won’t want to buy anything. Even if it leaves money in the bank.

Pi Foundation Display – 7″ Touchscreen Display for Raspberry Pi

That would be nice, use Parsec to stream games to it, including when not at home. But that costs $80. You can probably get a cheap ass Android tablet for $80. And it’s over $80, once you add the Raspberry Pi. And everything else you need.

Does anybody in the US sell the Pinebook? Parsec probably wouldn’t work on that though, different CPU.

There’s a 2.8″ screen for $45. Is that big enough? It has a touch screen.

I’d play Fallout 76 with a Steam Controller. That game was made for controllers. I have a mini bluetooth keyboard, the battery is probably dead, it’s been sitting in my white thing, don’t know what it’s called. For a long ass time. The battery might be unchargable.

Raspberry Pi NoIR Camera Board v2 – 8 Megapixels

That’s cheaper, and then I can use it as my security camera. No IR filter, so it’s probably better then my cheap ass webcam.

Don’t really need their power adapter, I have a four port USB charger on my desk. And if I was going to get the screen, I have a portable USB battery.

I won’t buy a premade IP camera, somebody bought one, and it changed it’s MAC address to get internet access, and was connecting to a server in China. They might be paranoid, but so am I.

Apparently you won’t get 5V from most USB chargers, because “they draw so much current that the resistance of the cable causes a voltage drop, so instead of 5V, the device sees 4.75V or so”.

They charge $50 for a wireless keyboard + touchpad.

$77.80 for a security camera. A better webcam would probably be cheaper. And does Raspbian have SSH enabled by default? I don’t want to plug it into my monitor, to much work.

Put Arch Linux on it, there’s an ARM version.

Looks like a pain though. I do wonder what Fallout 76 looks like on a 320×240 display.

Also, to see how much shipping is, you have to go to the checkout to calculate it. Also, Adafruit’s stuff is cheaply made. Not sure that matters for some stuff. But the wireless charging receiver I bought, broke, the connector did, it wasn’t meant to be unplugged.

Why is the 4″ screen sold out? And why is my monitor blue? Might of went away, after changing the settings, and changing them back. Looks like I need a new monitor. Looks like I overused this one.

How slow is shipping from Canada? It’s around $80 before shipping, that is the basic kit, with a power adapter, and two heat sinks, and the Pi.

CanaKit Raspberry Pi 3 B+ (B Plus) with Premium Clear Case and 2.5A Power Supply cheaper on Amazon, then from their site, still sold by them, just shipped by Amazon.

Can you record from the camera with ffmpeg?

You probably need an IR light source for the NoIR camera to be worth it.

kuman for Raspberry PI Camera Module 5MP 1080p OV5647 Sensor HD Video Webcam Supports Night Vision for Raspberry Pi Model B/B+ A+ RPi 3/2/1/zero/zero W with FFC/FPC Cable (Raspberry pi Camera)

Look at them fancy lights. Does it work with Linux? I’d get a Pine board and camera, but their camera only works with Android. Those are IR lights.

The Pi Zero can read 1080p 30 FPS? Or is the camera doing all the work? If it can, that’s even cheaper. Looks like the camera does all the work, otherwise it would be useless.

Where did my micro USB OTG cable go? I found an old USB ethernet adapter, only 100 Mbps, plenty for USB 2.0 or whatever it has. Found it.

Not cheaper to get the non wireless Zero. Boohoo, I don’t want WiFi on it. WiFi is bad.

CanaKit or Vilros? Never heard of Vilros, or maybe I have. The Vilros is slightly cheaper, I think CanaKit is Canada based. Since I don’t need the USB OTG cable, I’ll pay more for the CanaKit. And I like that brand better.

Did you see the pictures of the dude with that camera? Looks like it’ll work nicely in the dark.

What camera doesn’t have good video quality? Says for the price paid it doesn’t. I don’t expect it to be much better then my $20 webcam, the part that’s better is IR.

The maker of the camera has a case + LCD screen for the Pi 3. It’s only $30, but the case falls apart apparently.
