I need to buy a breakout kit, a breadboard, resistor, led and wire before I start with hardware.

Do you have a quick pic of your setup?

I just spent $15 at Radio Shack tonight on some project stuff. I bought a small bread board, some red, amber, and green LED's, and some assorted 1/4 watt resistors. Curious as to what is the best wire to use without getting the GPIO cable kit. I have some solid 24 gauge cat5 cable but I would like to find something with the crimped connectors to connect to the GPIO interface.

Something like these, the ones like motherboard headers for front panel LED's...

No, I don't have a way to take picture (no phone, camera, webcam). I only have my post in show your linux https://www.overclock.net/t/115329/show-your-linux/4290#post_18722046

I will most probably buy some hardware in bulk from newark canada.

NP, added. redface.gif

Anyone know the technical term for these "jumper" cables?


Edit: Did some research and they are indeed called "jumper" cables. Just search male/female bread board jumper cables.
I bought a ribbon of 40 (8 in long) for $5 on eBay here.

Just got my model B today (case was backordered :/ ). No specific plans yet, but I love the possibilities for this little guy.

Get an IDE cable and cut off the connector so that you have the right number of pins thumb.gif

On the other end, either cut the end off and expose the wires to plug into the breadboard. Or if you got the set of bread board wires that radio shack carries, then take the small ones, straighten them out and plug them into the board and into the connector.

That's a good idea but I ended up ordering this from eBay for $5

I just got my Pi up and running today. I'd like to join the club. Surprised not as many people are in the club already, the Pi's are so cool!

I have a Model B, and I'm a beginner. Intent? Trying anything and everything with it. smile.gif

I want a Pi so bad.. but I'm way too impatient to cough up the money for something and have no estimated delivery date.. and ebay is not an attractive option.. oh well.. guess i'll just have to wait till they're a lil easier to get my hands on..

Now that we're past the holidays it shouldn't be but a couple weeks to get one. It took me a little less than a month to get mine and I ordered in October.
