Configuring wifi on the raspberry pi:
Edit /etc/network/interfaces, and add:
wpa-ssid "network name"
Then I had to `sudo service networking restart` and `sudo ifdown wlan0; sudo ifup wlan0` a couple times and it eventually worked.
Well that was unsettling. Was harshly woken up by the sound of crackling and my lights flickering, then a pop and the apartment went dark. In a half-awake stupor I was confused why one of my lights was still working. Took me a while to realize it was only the circuit for my outlets that had tripped.
I tried to reset the breaker, but it snapped again immediately after I turned it back on. So my thought is something on the circuit has shorted, or I've just overloaded that circuit.
Either way, I can'e believe they built a brand new building and put all the plugs in this apartment on a single 15-amp circuit. Seems like it wouldn't have been that much harder to at least split it into two!
