This is super rad! The frame is super nice too.
Also, use whatever you want. As long as you start and finish a fun project and it meets YOUR specs, that's A+ in my book.

Oi, sorry about even dreaming of a possible improvement to a project (regardless how cool and perfect it already is). Jesus people.
Why would you want to consume less electricity? So you can run on a battery. Why would you wanna do that? So you can place the box anywhere and not worry about having access to a plug.
You did no work and offered only unfriendly remarks. Are you now surprised youíre being called out for your behavior?

Well yes, I am surprised, because in no way I thought that my suggestions were in any way unfriendly, mean, bad, awful or ... whatever else you want to call them. Definitely not my intention, but i probably have a bad way of communicating that. So ... i'll see myself out.

When I read your post the first time, it didn't seem negative at all, just a different way to tweak that project idea.

Hey Pi thread,
I have a friend who has been asking about a personal weather station, so I want to buy him a what he needs for his birthday. The kits look much pricier than the parts alone, does anyone have any recommendations?
I saw the Sense hat which looks like it does temperature and humidity, but a lot of reviews said that the heat from the pi caused it to not work right, so I'm thinking I'll go with the not hat version.
This is what I was going to base my purchases off of. I'm an idiot who knows nothing about raspberry pi, so I was hoping I could get some advice, or at least some eyes to tell me if this stuff looks good.
Cheers.

Some of the fun parts of the project are doing research on what to shop for and then actually shopping for the stuff. Maybe a gift card and a note mentioning itís for the weather station would be better than buying the parts.
