Hi,

Anyone interested in local meetups and knowledge share in Brighton/Sussex, may like to head over to http://groups.google.com/group/brightonpi

or,

https://twitter.com/#!/BrightonPI

May be a little slow until we get some boards but the list and twitter will be a good place to await updates :)

SASAUG - Surrey and Sussex Acorn User Group already meet monthly in Horsham;

and almost all regular members attending have Raspberry Pi's on order (and others already have Beagle boards)    http://sasaug.org.uk/

We obviously can't promise a RaspberryPi at the next meeting - which is planned to be about:    MPlayer and Pandaboard on 16th April (NOT Our usual date due to Easter!)

We meet in Horsham - see websitre for details (and I'll get the automatic date corrected)

You could always try BuildBrighton:

Oh, and regarding cases, don't forget that Brighton has a Lego store with a Pick and Mix section ... and last time I looked they had quite a lot of red bits in stock. You get to fill a small tub with Lego for six quid.

Hi Jon, already got mine but haven't had a chance to get it working yet as I needed most peripherals as what I already had were being reported as non-compatible. Hopefully having ordered an accessory pack, which included a populated SD card, I'm only short of a HDMI to DVI adaptor now, unless I try it with our 42" HD TV???

Yes Colin, plug it into your HD TV. It's meant to be!

I am going to build a laptop thingie using a Motorola LapDock. There's a thread about it somewhere... But I also have a second Pi coming from RS (my current one is a Farnell order), so I can hack about with one safe in the knowledge that I have an original to fall back on. I'll show you the laptop once I get it going. Will send PM.

Regards

JonB

Hi, I'm Steve Ancell and have just joined this forum.

I'm from Woodingdean in Brighton and have registered an interest with Farnell and RS Components, just waiting for the purchase invite.

Where about in Brighton will the user group meetings be held?.

Hi Jon,

Managed to get my Pi working with an unused PC Monitor having purchased a cheap HDMI --> DVI-D cable. As I posted elsewhere, connected it all up and it booted up first time. However, I didnt shut the Pi down properly, and am now a bit worried (having read some other posts) that I might have corrupted my SD card when I just unplugged the Pi. Well I'll soon find out, as I have since received a WiFi dongle and case, so in the next few days will be installing the dongle and housing my Pi!!!!! Probably ought to try the Pi with my HD TV as well!!

Cheers,

Colin

Just thought I'd say hi. I know that at BHASVIC 6th form they had a thing planed for students with pis, but I don't know if anyone signed up for it.

I was looking at the map and I can see that someone quite close to me has one. I was rather surprised :D
