One lovely blog award – who are my favourite bloggers?

This challenge has spread across the internet like fire (I didn’t create this challenge) so I have decided to do one. Basically, I have to tell you 7 things about my character. And up to 15 bloggers I enjoy. I have over 40 followers, but as there are limits (a few don’t have blogs) and you can only do up to 15. I am sorry if I do not include you!

So, here are the 7 things about me!

1. I think about my web browser project, ECG SeaSurf , for a lot of my time. I love it because the world wide web is a big place, and making software that allows people to browse such a great thing makes me feel special.

2. I do not try to block the spotlight from other developers as I love seeing what others have produced too, and I love getting inspired.

3. I love playing video games because they are extremely fun, and it feels like I am in the game (no VR here!). They also take stress away.

4. I love writing stories, to entertain people. I am writing a story called Sir Wolf’s Castle, about Minecraft wolves and a villan called Sir Bum-Smacker.

5. I love looking at over blogs and leaving feedback and liking posts because I don’t want to look selfish.

6. I love ketchup. It is an awesome sauce.

7. There are lots of other things I love but don’t blog about: Star Wars and Legends of Chima, for example.

Now, here are my favourite bloggers: I DO NOT ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR LINK CONTENT CHANGING

1. Codeinfig:

An author of a coding language called Fig, a coding enthusiast, and much more. Check out his blog at codeinfig.wordpress.com!

2. Jacque:

If you want to go beyond my app-making service (I would recommend trying it first and requesting a removal if you don’t like it), then Jacque is the person for you. He can even get your app published to the Play Store (I didn’t ask for an app because I can make one myself).

Check out his blog at themarvelousmind.com

3.  ARJ

If you want a guide to coding and you want to be a pro, then ARJ’s blog “A bit of everything – copy” is the place for you. He has another blog, pythongr.wordpress.com, which is worth checking out too.

Unofficial Raspberry Pi Clock Application

Hi guys. Today I have been experimenting with Python and Pygame. I managed to make a clock application for the Raspberry Pi.

Here is the code:

import pygame, sys, time

pygame.init()

screen = pygame.display.set_mode((1184, 624),
pygame.FULLSCREEN)
pygame.display.set_caption(“Raspberry Pi Clock”)

clockFont = pygame.font.Font(None, 72)
clock = pygame.time.Clock()

##COLOURS

WHITE = (255, 255, 255)
RED = (255, 0, 0)

##IMAGES
logo = pygame.image.load(“/usr/share/raspberrypi-artwork/launch.png”)
piclock = pygame.image.load(“raspitimebackground.png”)

##CODE
screen.blit(piclock, (0, 0))
pygame.display.flip()

time.sleep(2)

screen.blit(logo, (0, 0))
pygame.display.flip()

theFont = pygame.font.Font(None, 32)
theSurf = theFont.render(“Raspberry Pi”, True, WHITE)
theRect = theSurf.get_rect()
theRect.midtop = (115, 5)
screen.blit(theSurf, theRect)
pygame.display.flip()

loadFont = pygame.font.Font(None, 32)
loadSurf = theFont.render(“Press Enter to load the desktop”, True, WHITE)
loadRect = theSurf.get_rect()
loadRect.midtop = (500, 300)
screen.blit(loadSurf, loadRect)
pygame.display.flip()
while True:
clock.tick(1)
clockTime = time.strftime(“%H:%M:%S”, time.localtime())
clockText = clockFont.render(str(clockTime), True, WHITE, RED)
screen.blit(clockText, (1000, 550))
pygame.display.update()
for event in pygame.event.get():
if event.type == pygame.KEYDOWN:
if event.key == pygame.K_RETURN:
pygame.quit()
sys.exit()

The following image is required for this project file

raspitimebackground

If for some reason you ever need this image, feel free to use it. Learn more.

In the future, I will make a blog post about auto starting apps on the Pi.

Enjoy!
