[Chugalug] Pi or 'Duino?

why is it that 90 percent of my personal projects seem to "stall" because something more important comes up

I was making "some" progress on my r-pi disco ceiling project...   found a console-based mp3 player that had ascii-character spectrum analyzer output, I thought, "because this is console mode app, it should run faster/smoother than an Xwinderz app"   Wrong!   It brings my not-overclocked pi to its knees.  


I was in the process of studying the code to see if I could take only what I needed (I don't need no stinkin spectrum display, but I do need to know when certain frequencies are "hit" so I can light up the corresponding colored light), and then my mutha-in-law got me sucked into another project..   fix the gauges in her 2003 silverado...


so I guess I'll have to keep my polyester dance suit in the closet a little while longer

Hardest part was remembering my wifi password :-)

I don't know jack about Arduino so I'm biased.  I ordered a 4 channel sainsmart relay board this morning, for my Pi-based disco-ceiling project, but first I will build it with leds.
