Pi With Proto Plus

Now I can blog straight from my phone I thought I'd post this picture of my Raspberry Pi, in its case with the lid removed and with my new Adafruit Proto Plus board in place.

The add-on board is well-designed, allowing you to easily tap the Pi's signals for use on the breadboard (an optional extra I couldn't resist) or for external circuits.

I have also bought a couple of Adafruit's Pi Cobbler kits, which will let me attach the fully-enclosed Pi to a larger breadboard. I am happy to say my soldering skills are returning despite a thirty-year hiatus.

Note: I am not impressed by the way editing a mobile blog post immediately requires me to insert paragraph separators in what until then appeared to be a well-formatted post.
