Re: 22" TV with HDMI new for £74.99

I suggest you check out the monitors at www.morgancomputers.co.uk. Morgan deal in second-user or remaindered kit, and I've always had at least decent value from them. (I have no connection with Morgan, except as a long-term user). There are various monitors with DVI in their lists at present, so the...

Re: Can't search for "SD card" or similar phrases

Add "D-Bus" to the list of terms search can't find. Particularly annoying, since it's a term I used in a post I wanted to find quickly ...

Re: WiFi and graphical session

Mmmmm ... Well, I have a RT5370 running directly off the Pi's USB, apparently successfully. Just two quirks:- 1. For some reason, the Pi configured the wifi as wlan1.

Re: Pi Crust

I bought a Pi Crust, and I'm very happy with it. Looks good, protects the computer against dozy owners who put things down on top of it. Doh!

Also, it's solid and sturdy, and helps anchor the RasPi against the drag of assorted cables.

Re: A 5$ 1.5

Morgan (www.morgancomputers.co.uk) are selling an "Elonex 7" Weather Station and Digital Photo Frame WS710" for UKL30. The photo frame is 800x600 pixels and has a USB2 connection. I assume RPi can supply images to the screen via USB, but could that setup function as a Linux terminal? I'm currently u...

Re: Punnet - a print at home cardboard case

Cardboard Punnet's a great idea, but isn't it inside-out? A bit of mirror-imagery on the side and end designs, and making the base the outside, would mean that the port labels would be visible. It would also allow for the addition of some artwork on the lid. Perhaps something to consider when the di...
