Raspberry Pi

So a few days ago I got my Raspberry Pi kit in the mail.  The putting it all together was a snap.  What I got it for is my idea is to run it as a home Automation server to power the WeMo lights that I got, along with the WeMo plugs I will be getting in the near futre.  What this allows me to do it turning on and off my lights and other things remotely.

The setup of the Raspberry Pi was really easy, I got OpenHAB installed and running on it fairly easily.  I still have to finish setting up OpenHAB, and then I need to do my port forwarding on my router, but that is a no brainer. Also on this same one I will be pluggin in an external HD, and then putting OpenCloud on it and use it as a NAS like server.

But now after playing with the RPi, I want to get a few more for other project ideas I have.  One is I want to make a “SteamPunk” laptop, usinf the RPI and a cigar box for the case, all pretty straight forward.  The other project I am thinking about is on to be a Steam game streamer so I can play my Steam games on any TV in the house.
