    HackerBoxes 0011: HAX0R TREAT

    You can find the Arduino Pro Mini (5v) fairly easily. I have a computer and electronics store near me (called MicroCenter) that has them for $7.99 and they were on sale this past weekend for $3.99. They already have the pins soldered, making them easier to use.

    Kristian, have you solved the distance problem? I'm experiencing that my transmitter and receiver *must* be very close (less than a foot, generally) in order to send and receive the "A" signal as seen in the image attached...

    I found that I had to set Tools|Processor to ATmega328 (3.3v, 8 MHz) and Tools|Programmer to USBtinyISP in order to successfully run the programmer by powering the board from the CH340 adapter. Going to try to fix my battery powered issues next.

    HackerBoxes 0010: Phython Pi

    I've spent about 7 hours now on this and still cannot resolve it. At one point, I had been able to use (and connect via) a Wi-Fi dongle I had laying around, but I have never been able to get the onboard Wi-Fi to work. Since Linux is new to me, I've looked at wicd (following the instructions here), ensured my locale is set correctly, gone through wpa_supplicant, and much more. All to no avail. To make matters worse, my Wi-Fi dongle no longer appears to be working (not even on my RaspberryPi XBMC server where I "borrowed" it from).
