Sat. Dec 9 2023 – Pi Essentials + DNSMasq at home

A 2 part presentation, Pi Essentials, always good to know. And using DNSMasq to DNS-up your house (never think in numbers again)

Pi Essentials will be a beginner level introduction to some of the things you can (or maybe should) do when the Pi starts up. Nothing requires more than a few lines of code, and these are the sort of add-ons that can go with your main project. Included are buttons to put the Pi in standby mode, and start it running again, and pilot lights to show whether or not the Pi is running. A sound notification at start-up using simple text to speech, and how to put an icon on the desktop that can be clicked on to start your program are also included.
The way these utilities are organized and documented will illustrate one method of keeping track of your SD card contents.
