Light box - major construction complete

The new lightbox now has all major parts in place, there is just some finishing work to do - painting the outside and a couple of bits of frame, and fitting handles, catches and cable clips.

Here it is packed up, its 180cm X 56cm X 20cm. There's a 1m ruls sitting on top of it

RaZberry: running as a service

Running as a service means openhab will automatically start when rpi starts up and will shut down when rpi shuts down, it can also be shutdown at any time from the console (for example, to run z-way to pick up new or changed device configurations).

This script is based on the one Victor Belov posted here changed thus:
  1. directory and user names changed (ECLIPSEHOME, RUN_AS)
  2. added to DAEMON_ARGS
  3. simple 3 generation log recycler

RaZberry: Stripping down the configuration

The demo config is good as a demo and as a simple howto, but I'd rather keep the config simple and add things into it as needed. This keeps logs and the UI simple.
