I followed these instructions to set up my usb wireless adapter: https://www.lifewire.com/usb-wifi-adapter-raspberry-pi-4058093. As soon as I rebooted I am now dead. Slight chance I ...

Re: Forum structure

Some people tell me that suggesting the clever folk behind the Raspberry Pi don't know what they are doing and suggesting improvements or how things should be different is insulting them. So I'll sit this one out as I don't want to get banned for insulting anyone. Actually it is the way it is state...

Re: Just bought a Raspi3B - can I just transfer my memory card from my Raspi3 to the newer model?

The last release of Raspbian Jessie was in July 2017. It was superceded by Raspbian Stretch in August 2017. Other than starting afresh with a clean install of the April 2018 release of Raspbian Stretch you have two options. Neither is straightforward or officially supported. You could use the older...

All that is really saying is that the HTTP server must support all the things any half-decent HTTP server would support.
