Virtually every Raspberry Pi project will require a network connection, and considerable flexibility can be gained by ignoring the Ethernet port in favour of a wireless USB dongle.
If you’re using a Raspberry Pi computer for your weekend project (perhaps a media centre or a home server) then there is a good chance these useful command line instructions will save you time.

Disclaimer: some are significantly more useful that others.
There are a handful of designs which really give the Pi a unique look. And thankfully, these unique enclosures usually don’t much – most are available for $20 or less.
