Too many possibilities to decide non one or two to actually do ha ha!

btw. I might have fixed my problem - my wifi dongle was power napping. Whenever I 'surprise' my raspi now, it's responsive.

That's great news man! I have problem with the dongle in my #Pi Video Player- it keeps connecting, reconnecting, requesting handshakes, disconnecting,. reconnecting... Very unstable. I need to have a look at it and i wonder if surprising it may sort the job out!

I'm putting it on #Tote, naturally, but still waiting for the modified PCB for that.

I got mine for a future project. I'm going to get an adafruit Fona808 GPS\GSM board and use it and my Zero to make a vehicle tracker.

I had a `78 Ford that someone stole a few years back, presumably because they wanted the engine out of it- it had a v8 460ci engine and was a beast. I miss the shit outta that truck, but I don't miss putting gas in it.

But yeah, probably won't ever happen, but if it does... at the very least I'll be able to point the cops to exactly where they need to go. I'd prefer 'where me and my shotgun need to go', but I promised my mother ;p

Are you trying to add it to a personal calendar or the HaD calendar? It added it to my HaD without any problem. I have my HaD shared with my personal calendar but it doesn't do much good since the time of the event is wrong.

  Are you sure? yes | no

Sophi Kravitz wrote 12/03/2015 at 17:12 point

I'm not sure why either- how are you adding it?

  Are you sure? yes | no

 Google calendar refuses to save this event.  Unsure why this is.
