    Testers for Remote Control of Pi using Scratch

    I'm trialling a different method of using Raspberry Pi with Scratch in classrooms

    Instead of connecting them directly up to own keyboard/monitor combo or remote into them using VNC, I've got another way

    Basically, the PI runs a little script on startup that listens out on the network to see if it should launch a GPIO Python controller program.

    The pupils can then run a little program on their main PC/Laptop and connect to the Pi using the last 4 digits of the Pi serial number.

    Basically, looking for people to just try out my install scripts and see if they will work for real in schools and not just when I hand hold them

    This looks great Si .. it's one of the reasons iv not experimented with the Pi as much.. and stuck to Arduino.

    Will try and give this a go over the weekend.
