  1. So the displays do show the windows desktop and duplicate the laptop screen? If so, press Windows + P and choose "extend".
  2. Never mind, it works now. Might not be the smartest code but whatever. Did the same thing for turning it off again - just reversed: import RPi.GPIO as GPIO import time GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BCM) GPIO.setwarnings(False) GPIO.setup(10,GPIO.IN) GPIO.setup(11,GPIO.OUT) state = 0 #screen is off by default def relay(): GPIO.output(11,GPIO.HIGH) time.sleep(0.05) GPIO.output(11,GPIO.LOW) return() try: while True: if GPIO.input(10): if state == 0: #if the screen is not turned on yet
  3. Hello guys, I can't wrap my head around this...should be easy to do however. I want the Raspberry Pi to turn on a screen (GPIO 11) if my motion sensors digital input is 1 (GPIO 10). I connected the power button to a relay which should simulate the button press. Here is my code so far: import RPi.GPIO as GPIO import time GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BCM) GPIO.setwarnings(False) GPIO.setup(10,GPIO.IN) GPIO.setup(11,GPIO.OUT) state = 0 #screen is off by default def relay(): GPIO.output(11,GPIO.HIGH) time.sleep(0.05) GPIO.output(11,GPIO.LOW) retur
  4. I've got this one from the highest mountain in Germany, the Zugspitze.
  5. True, the GPU definitely decreased a lot in value, but it would be an easy replacement if needed. I might put it up on ebay or some sort to see whether there is any interest at all in this. After all this build means something to me and I don't want to give it away cheaper as needed. Thank you for your answers
  6. Hi, I'm currently playing with the idea of selling my current build. Though, I really don't know how to estimate the price for this. I previously owned a ATX build from which I transfered over the CPU and PSU as well as the storage and RAM which were bought in December of 2014. The rest of the stuff was purchased in the second half of 2016. Hardware has not been overclocked (sorry).

  7. Hi folks, a friend of mine tried to follow this tutorial about receiving & sending codes with arduinos (it's German): http://www.arduino-tutorial.de/funkuebertragung-von-messwerten-mit-dem-rf-link-modul/ The baseline is, though, that this doen't seem like a copy&paste code. Apparently something got messed up with special characters and their translation (HTML) so the sourcecode ends up not working out of the box. I guess we figured out that &quot equals " and &amp is for &, but replacing the characters like that gives us following e
  8. I guess both components are cheap in my case Using a Tamron 18-200mm f3.5 with a Tamron UV filter. These were included with a pack along with my D3300, didn't buy them separately. I'm glad that I have this lens instead of the normal kit lens though. IMO it makes a pretty good all-rounder, but of course it has its limits.
  9. I probably focused on too much of the lower part (f8) or wiggled the focus ring a bit when mounting the ND filter. I kind of sat on a cliff with the water running right behind me while doint that so I couldn't really take a look at the screen simultaneously. In such moments I wish I had a camera with a rotatable screen. I'll keep that in mind for the future I'll do now! I know that UV filters are kind of useless but kept it on as a protection for the lens. A lens hood would be useful as well, haven't got around to get one yet as the ND filter is the only thing I own that's 77mm in size
  10. Cute cate Like how the sun reflects in his/her fur. Seeing more of his bottom half would have been nice, but cats are incredibly hard to photograph, admittedly. I love using the ND-Filter on my camera. Though, that leaves me with one question: I noticed that I often get lens flare on my pictures. That being said, I screw the ND filter on top of my already existing UV filter. Could that sandwitchign be the cause of the excessively appearing flare?
  11. I'm guessing this is a phone picture. It's obviously not the greatest quality - it seems like you were a bit shaky when taking the picute. You could get a bit lower and point at the stream (removing the path on the left). Try resting your phone on your knee or holding it with both hands with your elbows tucked to your upper body
  12. I like that. Here's an idea: Set up your camera for when you are doing a ordinary flight. Maybe something interesting comes out with the LEDs shining. Though...darkness and drones are not a good combination. A more interesting background would be nice I guess, but who am I to say that. I tested the ND filter again on a day with bright sunshine and light fog:

    Repeaters are pretty much the way to go in your case. They actively regenerate the signal an thus extend the range of your wifi. Though, depending on your internet speed they might slow down your connection. But I hope you are not gaming over wifi anyway.
  14. I made a DIY armor for my Z97 Gryphon (mATX). I started measuring all of the important dimensions. Such width, height and distance from the edge of the motherboard to RAM slots etc. I then used these measurements to create a model in Sketchup. Printed the model and cut it to a 1:1 size cardboard mockup. I then looked at how it fits the MB and noted where improvements had to be done. I did this about 5 times until I was (somewhat) certain that it was going to fit. I then got it cut by some guy on ebay with a CNC. The material here is acrylic. After ~1 month of constant usage I have
  15. Is rating pictures with a digit obligatorily bound to this thread? That's a genuine question. IMO a short feedback with tips on how to improve the submitted photo is worth a lot more. *If you are refering to my post, sorry. I was just curious about the hardware used.
