    I'll get to do just enough tinkering with it to make sure its fully functional with no defects. Then put a big red ribbon on it ,and Wait till Santa comes.

    Extreme Overclocker Takes Raspberry Pi to 3 GHz

    Some people will do anything for a speed boost, prying the lids off expensive i9s and subjecting them to all manner of chilly chemical concoctions to drag every last megahertz out of the silicon. We’ve not seen anybody do such an extreme overclock with a Raspberry Pi before, but there's a first time for everything. Claude Schwarz has overclocked his Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 to an extraordinary 3 GHz.

    I've seen people pry off the heat spreader on CPU's before. That wasn't doable to a Pi until the Pi 4 and that new SOC. I haven't even done a stock overclock. My Pi 4 is more than fast enough for what I'm doing with it. I do add extra cooling via a fan though. I want to prevent it from throttling due to thermals getting high.

    Eventually I will need to use my PICO Wireless Pack with some sensor breakouts. I can plug my PICO and the breakouts into my PICO Breakout Garden Base, no place to plug in the Wireless pack though? And a stacking header won't work, it would have to go on the PICO, and the Breakout garden and Wireless pack are both female headers.
    I can plug my PICO and Wireless pack into an Omnibus, but don't have a Breakout Garden Pack, Mine is the bigger Base version. What to do? I built my own PICO i2c Breakout Pack. I took a stacking header (only needed the female part), a PICO Proto, and 4 of the i2c Breakout Extenders (just the socket part), and fabed something up.
    I could not get it to work, double and triple checked my wiring and was when I noticed one little wisp or solder shorting two pads together. Luckily for me it was just grounding the SDA pin so no harm done to anything. Fixed that and its now fully functional.
    I'll have an RV3028 RTC, a BME280 for temp humidity and pressure, and a VEML6075 UV sensor plugged in. I could have done this all up after Christmas but I had all the bits sitting on my desk and my soldering iron was already warmed up from another project. Right now all I need to do is make sure the Wireless pack works, then box it up and put it away. That's on todays agenda.

    This is what I fabed up. The PICO WIFI Pack works Ok near as I can tell. It scanned for and detected nearby networks, and connected to my network OK.
    Just have to hunt up a Micro Python library / driver for my VEML6075 UV sensor.

    Edit: I think I have a working driver. I'll have to give it a good test in some good sunlight to make sure. I'm getting readings, very very low readings, but its giving me numbers with no errors in my file.
