    Yea, I want at least 10. Once I get the software done I'll be expanding the hardware myself.

    well, let me say that so far my adventure into Windows 10 on the Pi has not been without a struggle.
    I finally had the card flashed, but came to find out you specifically need an 8gb card... crud. I am going to need to go down and get me that size.. Got some 2/4/16/32/64 gb ones, but... no 8.

    and no, just flashing a bigger one is not a workable solution (been there, tried that).

    Getting to the point you can even flash the card is a saga worthy of telling, but not today.

    On the plus side I have a Windows 10 preview virtual machine (that can access everything--USB ports included) contrary to what Microsoft says. They say you can't virtualize it, but they lie (VMWare rocks).

    No, but it got pushed to a back burner. Sad really since all of the hardware is built and it just needs working Software...
    I just haven't had the time to get it done. Still on 'the list' :)

    I was hoping your image would have worked to get me motivated, but that one doesn't launch either. It has the same issue my original copy did and seems to be missing libs or libpath entries. Not a huge Linux dude so I have to work slow with that and would rather invest the time in rewriting it.

    Hmmm, I still don't understand why my image is not working.... :(
    But to help I am going to try to get the software working on a Raspi 2. It would also be faster...
    Then you can hopefully work on the interface.... :)

    As soon I get it working I will upload the image.

    I am zipping the image now....
    But this time I want to put the steps it took documented.. So here goes:

    Al in terminal on a Rasbian Jessie image with an Arduberry connected.

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get install git


    Then install node:

    curl -sLS https://apt.adafruit.com/add | sudo bash
    sudo apt-get install node


    Check if node is installed:

    node -v

    This should give a version number back. v0.12.xxxx
    Then install MonoDG

    git clone https://github.com/svvitale/mongo4pi.git && cd mongo4pi && sudo ./install.sh

    Then I installed Arduberry:

    git clone https://github.com/DexterInd/ArduBerry.git
    cd Arduberry/script
    sudo chmod +x install.sh
    sudo ./install.sh


    Then a reboot.

    After reboot:

    npm install serialport
    npm install johnny-five


    Then the barmixvah stuff:

    git clone https://github.com/ytham/barmixvah.git
    cd barmixvah
    npm install


    And finally start the software... :)

    node app.js


    This works here... But the image is also comming later today...

    I'll try bigger tomorrow. I tried an 8gb today, but given how some folks quote MB ... it was a bit too small.

    Well, went through 3 8gb cards and all were a bit too small so I found one 16gb card (most area lot bigger) and am burning the image over today.
    I'll try it tomorrow :)

    Still waiting on a 32gb card to arrive that (hopefully) is big enough :)
    I had a handful but none of them (two brands) were enough sectors to work for that image.

    I ordered some others.
