Simon installed Processing on his RaspberryPi recently (using the terminal, which looked terribly sophisticated and scary as on Linux you’re forced to do everything through the terminal) and started preparing examples that he hoped to show during his own livestreams, but the RaspberryPi seems to have crashed, unable to bear the weight of so many examples…
Didn’t really feel like going to his first Fench class this morning. All he wanted to do before and after French class was program:
We were utterly shattered when at the end of day two the PiTop stopped working. First it froze and we had to force reboot it by pressing the on/off button. This may have caused corruption of the MicroSD. The PiTop’s power does go on but the screen remains grey. Simon was crying bitterly at first but started looking for rebooting solutions on YouTube later in the evening. He is planning to reimage the SD-card tomorrow. Even if that doesn’t help there is a lot of learning involved in the process I believe. I have also written a letter to the PiTop support team.
Yesterday, while we were celebrating Halloween, Simon had more important things to do: he assembled his first laptop and spent hours programming it.
