The Linux Innards

  • Joe: I have a project that I found to be very interesting even though I don’t think that it was very difficult: to use USBIP on the pi so that I can use my headset with my computer while moving around the house without having to switch between multiple devices while podcasting.
  • Moss: I’m using a Pi 4 as a computer and TV server. I keep woossing out on setting up the Pi 3B as a Pihole.
  • Josh: Unfortunately, I do not own a Raspberry Pi or any other similar SoC’s.
  • Bill: I have several Pi’s floating about the place doing various things. I’ve tried several projects with all the devices. I’ll outline some of the more useful things I’ve set my Pi’s up with.
  • Norbert: I never had a Pi but am considering getting one to set it up as a home file server
