CEEFAX on the Pi

CEEFAX was a text based TV information service provided by the BBC back in the 80 to 90's. It may have started earlier, not sure.

Fast forward to 2020 and we have working version on the Raspberry Pi computer.

You can read more here.

I am in the process of testing this out. My Raspberry Pi is running Raspbian 9.4 so I am in the process of updating this. It seems the latest update to Raspbian is 9.9.

This may be a long process, so I will have to post an update to this tomorrow. But in the meantime you can read up more.

If I get it working, I will see if I can bring it to the next South Devon Tech Jam on the 14th March. It may be something to have along side the Retro Computing area we are going to be setting up.

I am currently running Code Club at Paignton library and am also involved with the South Devon Tech Jam. Both of these are on a volunteer basis.

Code Club has gone virtual during the Corona Virus (Covid19) pandemic. I am therefore creating blog posts here, with the information for the various Code Club modules and then tweeting weekly.

I am also signed up as a STEM Ambassador I log the above activities as part of that.

I am looking for paid employment within Torbay & South Devon that will make better use of my skills and experiences. I would like the opportunity to learn and develop further. In the mean time I am seeking out opportunities to learn, undertaking courses online and engaging with various online communities.
