Raspberry Pi Time Machine and NAS Backs Up Data For You

Archiving data can save you in a pinch—but what if you forget to make a backup? This Raspberry Pi project, created by Curtis Gross, solves that problem by automating the process in a convenient NAS device. The end result is a Pi-powered time machine server with all of your data stored in archives.

ZRAM Boosts Raspberry Pi Performance

Linux is a two-edged sword. On the one hand, there’s so much you can configure. On the other hand, there’s so much you can configure. It is sometimes hard to know just what you should do to get the best performance, especially on a small platform like the Raspberry Pi. [Hayden James] has a suggestion: enable ZRAM and tweak the kernel to match.

Adding Ethernet to a Raspberry Pi Zero

If you have ever wanted to use a Raspberry Pi Zero with a wired Ethernet port, the article linked below shows an easy and inexpensive way to do it. Sure, you can always use one of those Ethernet to USB dongles but those cost more, and where’s the fun in that?

Adding Ethernet to a Pi Zero

Adding an Ethernet port to a Raspberry Pi Zero is quick and easy using a cheap ENC28J60 ethernet module. Start your Pi Zero Ethernet upgrade project now.

Connect up to 32 Relays to Raspberry Pi with a Stackable 4-Relay Board (Crowdfunding)

Two years ago, Sequent Microsystems introduced a stackable 8-Relay board enabling up to 64 relays to be connected to a single Raspberry Pi board. The 8-relay board only supported 24V/2.5A, and the company is now back on Kickstarter with a 4-relay board with 250V/10A line-switching relays that can offer up to 32 relays by stacking 8 boards connected to one Raspberry Pi board via the 40-pin I/O header.
