    I have a WIP 'computer' built around an atmega644. Just need a VGA input to plug into.

      I fixed my VGA horizontal smearing problem. At 20 mhz, diodes are also capacitors!

    Awesome. I have a Raspberry Pi but nothing else. I've been wanting to start playing with it but it seems difficult without a dedicated monitor. Anyone have a Male-to-Male connector that I can use to connect it to my laptop?

      Justine, when you say Male-to-Male, do you mean a Male-to-Male HDMI cable? Or do you mean something else? If you do, you most likely won't be able to hook your Pi up to your laptop in any meaningful way. However, with a Male-to-Male HDMI cable (which is to say, a regular old hdmi cable), you could hook your Pi up to an external monitor or TV, like the one they have (had?) in the AMT workroom. You could use that connection to setup communications between you and your Pi. I think I have an extra USB-to-TTL cable that I dont use. Perhaps you'll be able to use that to communicate with your Pi? If I remember, I'll bring it over tonight. If you have an HDMI cable, I'd bring that too.

      I never use the monitor except when I absolutely have to. Aside from the console cable, you can also plug your Pi into your local network with a ethernet (CAT5) cable and SSH in that way. I'll be there on Wed night and can help with this. You should be able to follow the "using a wired network" section here: http://learn.adafruit...­
