Raspberry Pi stuff

This is pretty much just a reminder to myself. Most people can ignore this post. If you’re troubleshooting your pi feel free to email me with your questions. This post is unclear and incomplete.

A few things have changed with the new version of Debian: Stretch

Ethernet names of changed. The old stuff like wlan0 and eth0 aren’t used. To find the new names of network devices use ifconfig or iwconfig

SSH is disabled by default. So when setting up a headless install put an empty file called ssh in the boot directory

For wireless headless install the wpa_supplicant.conf file (also put this in the boot dir) needs some changes to the beginning:

country=US
ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev
update_config=1

network={

ssid=”mySSID1″
psk=”myPassword”
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
}

network={
ssid=”mySSID2″
psk=”myPassword”
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
}

City of Dope

I call it… Oak

There weren’t many people there.

Oakland A’s beat Anaheim (Los Angeles) Angels

Manaea got the win. Khris Davis hit #39

Day baseball in the Bay Area in September? For me, it doesn’t get much better than that.

Good ol’ Truckee

Brought my dad some dinner at the cabin today. He wanted chile relleno from El Toro Bravo in Truckee–which is excellent. I always get the carnitas. This evening they did not disappoint.

The cabin hasn’t changed. It’s still very calm and quiet. Nothing to listen to but the wind gently whooshing through the pine tree tops and the chattering of the Steller’s Jays–and your own thoughts of course.

When the sun started to go down my dad put on the A’s game. We swapped back and forth between Oakland the the SF Giants games. My dad poured some cognacs. I thought to myself, “this may be the last time I ever get to do this…better enjoy it”.

Dad didn’t say much. He didn’t have to.
