    hello

    @alecthegeek
    Hello, I wanted to experiment with an online discussion forum for this project. I hope you don't mind the invite

    Should also invite @ajfisher and AngusG.
    Cool. Interested in providing a common IoT approach for Wi-Fi (currently ESP8266), 802.15.4 IPv6 / 6LoWPAN mesh (Contiki / MeshThing) and Bluetooth LE (once IPv6 / 6LoWPAN becomes more widely available).

    Hi
    So I have a few things I need to publish back to this with regards to the auto-wifi set up etc. Now I've run through it a bunch recently in setting up minecraft servers for Jonah it's refined my process to the point I can probably make some script mods.
    And there's a few little things in there too like needing to configure /etc/network/interfaces with the proper wpa_supplicant directives if you set up wifi using wpa_supplicant during that wifi config step

    The project is in a mess at the momemt and needs some work
    1 testing on Pi 2
    2 wifi access point setup needs to be completed
    3 migrate to ansible. The bash script is just getting too umweildy to maintain
    If we are going to extend it to other projects (which I don't have a problem with) such as ESP8266 then it might need to be re-structured to be lot less Pi specific

    I ran it through a Pi2 (using Raspbian) and it appeared to work totally fine other than the selection for overclocking (in raspi-config there's now an option for "Pi 2" overclock)

    @alecthegeek
    Yea — there might be a couple of other things as well. I'm just snowed at the moment so have not tested (Damm Job Hunting!)
    BTW, Did this invite come with the IRC option? I know some peeps prefer IRC (which is what I'm using)
    ajfisher
    @ajfisher
    You're job hunting?
    Alec Clews
    @alecthegeek
    Yes, I still have a job but I need to move
    ajfisher
    @ajfisher
    Ahh right - yes am in a similar boat :)
    Alec Clews
    @alecthegeek
    Maybe we could swap :-)

    @alecthegeek
    There are now project issues for each of the listed issues and enhancements.

    ooh, IRC gateway
    thanks alecthegeek for the invite. ajfisher was telling me about Gitter the other day but I forgot the name of it.
    Alec Clews
    @alecthegeek
    I figured you prefer IRC to some manky web interface
    Alec Clews
    @alecthegeek
    FYI: I am not working on this project at the moment. I may pick it up in a few months

    @geekscape
    hi Alec, looking forward to seeing you then.

    @ajfisher
    @alecthegeek I've got a few changes as a result of getting NoDLE back and operational. I'll do a fork and PR and hopefully you can just pull it back in easily enough - this is mostly to do with some mods that have arisen due to PI 2 etc (eg overclock timings etc).
    Alec Clews
    @alecthegeek
    Cool
