thanks! I just set the network interfaces file to point at wifi.conf in the boot folder instead of wpa_supplicant
hacky but it works

@monteslu and I were chatting about that at RobotsConf last fall. IIRC it was @ajfisher that got that idea up and running for one of his projects there

One of the extensions I made on my copy was to set the various GPIO pins so I could use LEDs as indicators - eg red when it was post boot, pre network, green if it dropped onto an existing network, green if it created it's own AP. Should probably document those mods as well. On my next version I'm thinking of dropping a tiny little I2C oled screen onto it or something so you can then output status, IP address etc too.
