    Can you explain how you added the USB slots? Does the arcade controller give the USB port game controller priority over the joystick/buttons?

  • Raspberry Pi: Wall Mounted Calendar and Notification Center

    It's just pine boards I bought at the local hardware shop. It's premium boards, but since I painted it, anything would have worked with enough sanding. If I were going to build it again with just stain, I might use something that looked nicer, but paint covers a multitude of ugly spots on pine

    You've pretty much got it... I made the frame first, used my router to cut in on the back of the interior lip of the frame, giving the frame just enough of a track to sit down into. I didn't use miter cuts, I actually just squared it off, making sure the box supported the frame across the square cuts. Since I was painting it, the cuts on the frame didn't matter all that much, so I didn't bother with the miter saw. The screen is held in place at the corners. This is probably the place where I could have spent more time/money getting it right, but I found that the screen almost wanted to stay in the track on its own. I used picture hangers tacked across all four corners and that is plenty secure.

    I made one for my wife's birthday since she's the organized one in our family. Built a custom frame and hung it on a wall painted with chalkboard paint (I'll be running a recessed power outlet up behind it soon to hide the cord).

    Thanks for the explanation, but i'm not a programmer/coder, so I wouldn't really know what to do to fix what's already been posted here. For the sake of ease, would you mind posting your whole, correct code for the clock? Thanks!

    Thanks for the clock, it works great, but how can I get it to display 12-hour format instead of 24-hour format? I've already adjusted the clock settings on the Pi, but for some reason, it still pulls in 24-hour format.Thanks!
