Glad it turned out to be straightforward once you’d gone to the hassle of hooking up the monitor!

The Pico looks interesting.

raspberrypi.org

It's "free" on the cover of Hackspace issue 39 - if you stumble across it on the shelves. I've ordered one from pimoroni and am looking forward to learning more about it. The size, price, power consumption, ability to run Micropython and level of support make it look like a useful and powerful alternative to the Arduino.

I’ve ordered one from Pimoroni - would be nice to free my Pi from plant watering duties.

A perfect fit for the purpose; although data logging will need a new avenue.

Yep. Interesting that they didn’t include Wi-Fi capability (like the various ESP8266 boards) considering how big a thing the Internet of Things is likely to be for their customer base. Almost everything that I’ve automated in my house takes instructions from, or sends results to, another device.

Picos are now out of stock at Pimoroni, The Pi Hut, RS and CPC. My order didn't go through and so, Fetch, is it possible that you have my Pico?

My plan is to use this to switch a relay for a few seconds at a specific time each day to water my plant. I have the Python script to control the relay, but not sure whether I'll be able to set up a cron job on this. Any ideas? I guess the other alternative is just to run an infinite loop that includes a time check.

I thought I'd start a thread for Raspberry Pi fans. This is it :-)
