Title: Find the Temperature of your Raspberry Pi

Body: It happens to all of us; you're sitting there tinkering away on your Raspberry Pi and the thought enters your head: I wonder how warm this thing is right now. It's a good question and easy to answer. From the command line, simply enter this command:      sudo /opt/vc/bin/vcgencmd measure_temp For a nice, human-readable output in centigrade. You can take it a step further and write the command into a shell script and for easy execution. For example, I created a script called temp.sh and added the following:      #!/bin/sh      sudo /opt/vc/bin/vcgencmd measure_temp After saving, I made it executable for only my user with:      chmod 700 temp.sh And now I can pull up the temperature at any time by executing:      ~/temp.sh from the command line.
