I had been having problems setting up SSH on the Raspberrypi but then one day it started working. Sort of. I can ssh into the pi as long as I am at home on the same network. Trying from work or anywhere else and it times out. Oh well at least being able to get into the pi from my computer at home will allow me to update the app and reboot if needed. I also found a handy app that will let me ssh from my phone:
I also found a relatively cheap ($65) monitor from a local used computer part store called Free Geek.
Finally I also ordered the mirror online from Tap Plastics. I wasn’t able to find anywhere local that sold two-way mirrors. With the shipping and exchange rate the mirror turned out to be about $120. Once the mirror arrives I just need to build a frame.
