  1. Hi Dominic, I enjoyed browsing through your list of books and other resources found through a search for “raspberry pi rio rancho”. Lots of interesting topics. I am looking forward to spending time on Ras Pi now that I have retired and moving to Rio Rancho from Wisconsin. I started using a netduino back in 2012 but got sidelined due to work demands (Windows Server). I still have my fly rod from younger days and hope to try some stream fishing out there.
