Re: Cooperative backup

<t>So, I have had this idea for a Pi-based project involving cooperative backup.<br/> <br/> Off-site backup is really the only thing that will save you if your house burns down, if your house is robbed, etc.  However it's normally a huge pain.  You have to have a separate site, you have to transport...

Re: What is your speculation in hardware in the future?

<r>If you\'re asking whether future versions of the Pi might use that particular processor (as mentioned at <URL url="http://www.eeherald.com/section/new-products/nps201111148.html"><LINK_TEXT text="http://www.eeherald.com/section/new-pro ... 11148.html">http://www.eeherald.com/section/new-products/...

Re: Thermostat

<r>One project that I would love to do on the Pi is a programmable, web-interfaced, thermostat. Store-bought network-enabled thermostats tend to run in the hundreds of dollars and have limited options for custom programming. My current thermostat still uses mercury switches. It\'s been done with an ...

Re: Flash?

<t>When you say Youtube should still work even though Flash video doesn\'t, do you mean the HTML5 version of youtube?<br/> <br/> You say that flash video won\'t work \"out of the box\" but that suggests it should be possible eventually/with some work. Are you working with Adobe on getting a version ...

Re: Consider throwing out the "Model A" / "Model B" naming convention.

If you want to avoid confusion as to whether the \'A\' model is better than \'B\' then why not use \"Plus\" or + to designate the higher-specced one? Not that I object to the A/B nomenclature, it\'s just a thought.

Re: Abusing a powered USB hub

<t>I don\'t think the hub needs to be \'cheated\' or tricked or anything. I have an old 4-port USB hub that I\'m using to power three different devices: an iPod, an old MyTouch 3G, and a Sansa (together they comprise my bedroom media station) and I don\'t have the hub plugged into anything but power...

Re: Abusing a powered USB hub

<t>Ok, since the R-Pi is going to be powered over MicroUSB that means it\'s possible to plug it into a powered USB hub to draw power from that. I\'ve also heard lots of talk about needing a powered USB hub for most peripherals. What if those two powered USB hubs were the same hub?<br/> <br/> That is...

Re: will it run hulu?

<t>My concerns are that:<br/> <br/> Adobe may delay or never release Flash for Linux/ARM, like they did for Flash for Linux/AMD64. Flash may be a virtual machine, but unless you can get the company to compile it for your architecture, you're up the creek. Oh and the various 'lite' or obsolete versio...

Re: will it run hulu?

<t>I have the exact same issue: a power-hungry monster old PC that can just barely play Hulu, and costs me like $10 per month just in electricity. This will be the first thing I do with it, followed by setting up a NAS (possibly with a second Pi). My major concern would be, does Flash support ARM?</t>
