Justin Hayes’ Raspberry Pi GPS Clock #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

“The most ridiculously over-built clock ever?” via Justin Hayes:

As you can see here, it takes the combined efforts of 3 small, low-cost Linux running computers for me to tell time :) The Pi in the blue Pi shell has an ultimate GPS soldered onto a custom stripboard PCB that exports its time via NTP. The only things here I didn’t purchase from Adafruit are the Ethernet cables and the Linksys router, turned wireless bridge that connects it all to my network.
