How it feels to have your project featured on LifeHacker

It was an average day. I woke up at 11, attended a boring DSA class, came back, worked on IIITD’s website, then on GSF’s website and then on Odyssey’s website. Was bored, planned to doze off, but couldn’t sleep. Thought reading about some projects over github would be fun, opened github and saw this:

RasPod is one of my old baby projects. Most of it was made in about 2 days as an entry to Raspberry Pi’s Summer coding contest. I haven’t really worked on it since then that means around 1.5 years of inactivity. Getting 20-30 likes out of nowhere is strange for such an old hack. I thought the project was probably shared by one of my popular friends on Google Plus; so, I searched #RasPod on Google Plus and got no new posts. I, then googled “RasPod” to check if someone posted about it in a blog or something.

    Thats how I reached here. Good job mate (and I am happy that you are AAP supporter too). Now a request, how about making this hack so easy that even a noob can do it, like me, who does not have an iota of coding knowledge, I would just like to copy something on the card, stick it on Raspberry Pi and be done with it. Is that possible?
