Raspi.tv and gertboard

There is an awesome site here at Raspi.tv where there is lots of good information regarding raspberry pi information. The page here on that site shows how to control a fan and a light from a raspberry pi. This is a project I was wanting to work on after I got a gertboard and learned more about controlling things in the physical world. Also along those lines is how he is controlling a fan from the gertboard here.

As far as the gertboard I ordered… I finally contacted Newark because the ship date has changed about 5 times (sometimes farther away, and other times to a past date) and they said that they should ship in about 2 weeks. Maybe. However, on their site the ship date is now showing Feb 2013… The good news is that I am actually getting a un-built kit. Newark is no longer selling these, but may start to offer a pre-built gertboard. It looks like a site from the UK may still offer the un-built kit, but they don’t ship to the US.
