    Electric Imp driving a small OLED display

    I made some little functions for the Electric Imp to make it easier to drive a OLED display rom Digole (for example the 0.96″ Serial: UART/I2C/SPI 128×64 OLED Module Blue CN (DS12864OLED-2B), but they also come in other sizes and colours).

Inspired by, and other projects, I set out to count the flashes with an Arduino and output some nice graphs showing my electricity consumption.

  • Showing info on the Qnap NAS LCD

    With inspiration from lcd_tool and lcdmond on 419P I thought I’d make a little script that shows the hard drive temperatures on the display on a Qnap NAS (in this case a 419p): So, lets go to the home directory and create a file called ‘’: cd /home nano Then enter the following into the […]

    Rumours (dreams?) of a Duetto inspired Alfa Spider has been around ever since the last type 105 Spider S4 rolled out of the factory in 1994.
