    Not yet. What brand were the SD cards? I have tried three different ones at that size and they are not big enough.
    I hate how they size them... accuracy is not important.
    I'll just order a 32gb card and see.

    OK, an UPDATE!

    I finally got the new Visual Studio installed and flashed over a copy of Windows 10 IOT for the Pi.
    I got everything configured for development.

    .

    Holy COW Batman!

    This is really nice. I will have no problem whatsoever rewriting this to work on the Pi.

    It not only does the cross-compilation it does native remote debugging.
    Supports other embedded MCU like Arduino as well.

    Even has tools for porting existing apps over (you would still need a lot of tweaking in most cases).

    Really nice, a lot of potential..

    Well, I need to start off learning it, but frankly it will probably simplify the crap out of this.
    I started off using a rPi (an original) with an Arduberry board (to simplify the I/O and make it 5v) and the rPi 2 seems to support the 5v I/O directly and with this we can directly access the I/O so I will probably just write a class to handle mixing the drinks directly on the Pi (rather than the Arduberry).

    I think this will simplify everything. And makes it also cheaper... :)

    How many output ports can we use?

    If I see it correctly 17 ports ?

    Enough ingredients possible then... :)

    Lots of ports.. :)

    And when we have the ports chosen, then I can design a PCB that can be easily stacked on the Raspberrpi 2. With all the mosfet's on it. For everybody to use...

    Awesome! I was going to add an external card.

    Go ahead and pick the port and I'll just write it to those.
    Any of the GPIO ones should be fine.

    It would be REALLY handy if there was an easy way to do the 5v control (rather than 3.3v) directly.

    Awesome!

    It is not terribly difficult to get it running, now we will see if it is difficult to get it to do something :)

    Later today I am going to create a gitHUB for this and the initial project files. Since both me and my son will be working on this (different sections) it will help coordinate. Besides that stages/packages it for release and others when we get it finished.

    No direct full GUI libraries, but we can do it.

    Worst case it will have an old-school terminal 'graphics' (text-terminal) interface until someone (MS or a hacker/3rd party) does up a graphics library.

    The Barmixvah PCB for the rapsberry pi is comming allong nicely! :)

    12 different pump's on an easy connectable board.

    If I can do some testing on the software side let me know !!

    How is the interface going to be, a webpage or?

    Nice!
    Initially I think we will have the interface be an old-school text UI.
    You can't do much, yet, in the way of graphics with VC on the Pi, but that is not much of a limitation.
