@Pedro-Baco Yes, Notepad++ should be fine. I'm thinking of changing to use it.
EditPad Pro (http://www.editpadpro.com) is quite good too.
I work with diverse OS environments (Windows/Linux/Unix/Solaris) and have known people get in to trouble using the standard Windows Notepad to edit Linux config files because of line ending issues. :-(
@Nayan Cool tip :-) Effectively once this is done the Omega IS a range extender.
I just realised I was effectively already using my Omega as a range extender without realising it since I always use my Omega like this.
So long as your Omega is within range of your router
AND your computer is in range of your Omega
You will have internet access on your computer even if your computer is not in range of your router
The only thing I would emphasise is that you should set a security type and password on your Wi-Fi AP settings otherwise anyone could pirate on to your internet access by connecting to your Omega Wi-Fi
Just realised I hadn't done this :-(
Just short question. I have received Omega Onion & Arduino deck, I have however read in the documentation and it seems that I might need an Expansion Dock or a Mini Dock to burn the Arduino Dock ATmega chip with a new bootloader. Is this correct?
If this is the case I am currently missing Expansion Dock or Mini Dock before to start the hacakthon. Could you validate this information. In such case I will immediately buy few of them. Would it be shipped for next Friday?
Thank you so much for your help and for your time.
what about making a simple web page and use a server side technology to interface to the GPIO?
An example project would be to make a webpage that display a schedule that you can apply to the output pin you want. You could plug a relay board (inexpensive on ebay) to the Omega and turn on/off lights in your home/backyard or stuff like that.
With your OLED display, what about making a dashboard that can display your twitter timeline, check if you have any unread emails or other notification, or just simply display the local weather?
It is a small Linux computer, there is a lot you can do. Lots of language to learn.
Im currently looking into audio support, with the server software I use, there is a shairport plugin. So Apple devices would share to the server software which in turn passes it onto the client (wifi speaker) devices.
If I get the squeezeslave software to work, if you have a similar server software setup (if you have multiple speakers Id assume so) then there shouldnt be a problem.
