For my latest invention, I had to scour the darkest recesses of my mind, which is a very scary place I might add, to come up with a name for this project, but I finally came up with a name that people could relate to...

Something relevant, and totally...

I've decided to call it...

(drumroll please)

The Television

Okay, maybe not quite so original, so, how about...

RCAVictor ? (as opposed to the RCAVictoria, and if you didn't see that movie, well, neither did I)

I still see 2 issues with it, well, 3. I need to label the "ON/OFF" knob for one, I also need to add a button (someplace nifty) to safely shutdown the Pi, and some kind of light to tell you when you've actually switched the thing on would be nice, cuz it takes a few seconds to get some kind of feedback from the screen that it's actually ON once you've turned the rather less-than-high-tech knob that turns it on

There's also some water damage around the bottom where I need to find some kind of solution to replacing the veneer for which I have a few ideas for that probably won't work or are completely stupid which I am going to do anyway

I expect that matching the stain will be the most fun part

Spyder has a new invention
that's he's approached with apprehension

A retroactive restoration
of futuristic exploration

A project ripe for a Raspberry Pi
a device he has in oversupply

And with much dismay and indecision
he named the contraption a television

A modern device that goes back in time
displaying the behavior of all mankind

A crystal ball into the past
revealing souls who've iconoclast

And now the world must come to an end
as the sins of men are visually penned

The last invention of all mankind
built by Spyder, the mastermind

Sorry.  It just came to me, and by the rules of poetry it has to be posted, otherwise I'll be committing the unforgivable cardinal sin of blockading the natural flow of poetic inspiration.

Very impressed by the creativity both of the inventor and the poet.

Keep it up!
