Power for the mining-stack of Raspberry Pi’s

I have been running the Raspberry Pi mining-stack for a couple of days and I noticed that only on two of the Raspberry Pi’s the power LED was on. Although not all of the power LEDs were on I still could connect to each of the Raspberry Pi’s. After doing some reading up on the Raspberry Pi it turns out that those LEDs will only turn on if the Pi’s receives enough power.

Only some power LED's are on

Building a mining-stack of Raspberry Pi’s (rev 3 Model B)

During the holiday break I started thinking about building a little mining-rig using some Raspberry Pi devices. During the holiday break I normally don’t have access to a PC, so I couldn’t do much apart from some research using my mobile. I came across a post titled Mining Monero XMR Crypto Currency on Raspberry Pi’ by AndyPi. This post detailed how to setup a Raspberry Pi to mining XMR using Minergate mining pool and since I am already a user of the Minergate services it sounded like a perfect match.

Next step was to make a list of hardware required to built the mining-rig’, giving me the following list of items to be purchased

Helping out the old man (revisited)

Last year July I wrote about how I connected some internet services to help my dad make it easier to get access to his electronic news paper and magazine subscriptions. Over that last year his memory has been slowly getting worse making it even harder for him to remember making very minor computer related hiccup an unsurpassable hurdle for him.

Over the last 12 months the process detailed in the post Helping out the old man’ has been working fine for most of the time. Occasionally I had a re-authorize IFTTT again for Google Mail and Dropbox, but nothing serious. But for the last couple weeks things started to break down and I haven;t been able to fix it using the services used (IFTT combined with Google Mail and Dropbox). For some reason saving attachments stopped working, by either not saving anything at all or saving and image instead of the attachment.
