A Fair Raspberry Pi3 Review

In the past few weeks I've managed to test several operating systems on the raspberry pi 3 in spite of several technical difficulties. I look forward to covering more about what works, what doesn't, and what needs to be fixed in the coming weeks.

It would be suitable for a very wide range of devices and certainly exceeded my expectations in every way.

Useful Python

Between it's uses for security and visualizations there are more handy snippets of python than I can keep track of. It has become my favorite language for scripting, and possibly for programming in general. I use it constantly. I wanted to include some useful snippets here that you might enjoy, some will be in pdf formats, and I will add more as time goes by.
