Hello Hello Hello!
//If you just want to see the PiScanner Progress, skip the next 2 blocks
So, you may have noticed an absence of recent posts on this website. This is due to a few factors but the main one is a lack of focus. Not a lack of focus in a multi-tasking sense, but in a sort of literal sense. I’ve got foggy fragments of ideas, but no concrete ideas that are feasible. I think that the introduction of the “Project Execution” prefix in the title of this post (and hopefully all of my other project-based posts) will keep me “responsible” in regard to things I try and undertake.
There will be 5 steps for each project.
- Report feasibility  (This is where we will learn if the project is possible or not, and if not why.), Share all code  Take Lots of pictures 
- Demonstrate / Distribute
In the mail recently, I’ve got a whole new area of new more powerful computer science to enter into, and I think the PiScanner is the best way to do this.
The PiScanner will be a program that will identify motion using a PIR detector in junction with the GPIO pins, capture an image using a webcam or other camera compatible with the ports on the board, and then upload that image to a server to be viewed via rss.
This will be great for my backyard at night, it’s like animal planet out there this time of year and it will teach me a bunch of new things upon completion.
