    Your going to be a busy Pi Guy for awhile ...We're all moved back to the living room, the thing I missed the most was the bird feeder activity and the view of the green pasture and mountain out the Picture window

    I think I'm going to give this a try in the morning. But swap the Feather for a PICO. It's Circuit Python instead of Micro Python, I'm fine with that if it works.

    My electronics background helps a lot. Saves me from releasing the magic blue smoke, "most times". I also have pretty decent trouble shooting skills even if I do say so myself. It's just something you learn over years and years of fixing what's broken. Especially when they want it back in service yesterday, lol.
    You just have to be methodical and not jump ahead. That's why I spent a good half hour getting all the software installed on my laptop. And that's was before I even thought of running any code on anything. Now I can skip all that and just concentrate on what code I'm running on what device.
    I also have a USB DisplayLink display I plug into my laptop. That gets me dual displays, one for the IDE and one for the tutorial I'm following. It helps immensely.

    One thing I do is have a text document with the instructions split up into sections. Like for setting up my RV3028 RTC. There are a couple of reboots in the process, which can make you loose your place. I copy the file to the Pi I'm setting it up on. Open the file, and delete the lines of instructions I have done as I go along. I'm clipping and pasting from it anyway. If a reboot is needed I save the edited file. No loosing track of what you did or didn't do.
    I have one for my itty bitty beat box, pirate radio, etc. I also like to put what I can as comments at the end of my python files to remind me of extra stuff that might be needed and how to autorun it. Stuff like this
    # curl https://get.pimoroni.com/bme680 | bash
    # curl https://get.pimoroni.com/ledshim | bash
    # sudo pip3 install ltr559
    # sudo pip3 install veml6075
    # run crontab -e
    # add
    # @reboot python3 /home/pi/HD_Port_WC.py &

    I think the guy with the broken gamebox LCD is almost as bad as me with hardware ,I bumped up parts of his picture ,and the ribbon got a few funny bends in it and the metal part frame of the screen it's beat up a bit in a few spots .. Its bent up in the area you were telling him to careful not to bend it.

    They don't mind being folded at the ends, but they don't like side to side movement. Especially at the end connected to the screen.
