I am a recently retired sysadmin who entirely too late discovered the Raspberry Pi. The Raspberry Pi is an incredible device – a single board computer (SBC) that is inexpensive and runs a myriad of Linux based operating systems. Years ago a guy like me would have a pile of old, noisy servers in my basement that I used for testing, experimenting, learning new tech as well as running projects I used in my home and home network. The Raspberry PI allows anyone to do the same inexpensively and efficiently.

So why this blog? I keep finding very green and new to Linux people in forums asking for help – they don’t even know how to ask the right questions. I also think there are a few key projects that nearly every Pi owner should have on their home network. This site is meant to help the super newbs have a comprehensive guide to projects I think are hugely valuable to have on your home network or other Linux and general computing topics I find interesting.
