Bitcoin ASIC miner based on Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi + ASIC bitcoin miner

This is a small and minimalistic setup for mining Bitcoins using a Raspberry Pi minicomputer with a linux specific distro, and the usb ASIC miner from Butterfly Labs. Additionally I have developed some tools to monitor the performance and uptime of the system using local Python daemons. And the PiGlow led module that communicate via GPIO to the Raspberry. So I can show different light effects depending on the performance, network availability or mining pool events.
