Welcome to the home of the Dallas/Ft. Worth Raspberry Pi User Group.

Of course it's hosted on a Raspberry Pi.

We've yet to get rid of Covid-19, so meetings are going to be virtual only until further notice. Watch this space, subscribe to our mailing list (see below), or follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates.

September is upon us, might be time to figure out if you had any Halloween decoration last year, and where that might be at. Could be tricky to find in between the Xmas gear some retailers put out on display. Anyway, it's time, also Labor Day weekend, let's see who is in town. It has been suggested to broadcast from the lab, so I'm going to try to get Zoom working from there. If that all works, big TV and all that, with no policies or city ordinances against physical meetings, those might commence eventually. No promises at all.

This being said, same place, same time, as always:

While setting up a few other groups due to Yahoogroups going away in December, I found out that basic groups.io (GIO) accounts no longer receive 1GB of free files storage. That 1GB granted is for message archives only, so in case GIO pulls a Yahoogroups on us, there is an additional archive at
