DExUS, that looks fancy compared to mine! See, I had originally thrown together the counter & display board and tube mounted to two slabs of plexi with tall spacers between, clipped jumpers to a PL2303 with an onboard USB male, and that in turn was plugged directly into a Linksys NSLU2 from maybe 2004 or 2005 that had a stripped down linux bitbanged into the firmware. And once it was up and running, I was going to rebuild it with a proper SBC like a raspberry pi or rock64. But then my kids became small actual people, then big actual people and work became more complex, life became way more complex and...and...well, at least I recapped the NSLU2 a few years back! It's been sitting on a shelf on our network rack next to the Pi-Hole & Mumble boxes and at this point it would be a shame to disturb them unnecessarily.
Had to digg out my old arduino sketch and reupload with the new IP parameter. (also changed the upload schedule to 1 minute instead of 30 sec...)
I even forgot how the insides of my "counter" look like, I made it 8 years ago and the plan was to make a funcioning prototype and then to re-build it to some stable form.
But .... it's still in it's "project box", wired with funky wires and stuff hanging around. Hey, it works.
