Re: xbox 360 emulator

as a general rule of thumb, the emulator computer has to be 3x stronger that the system it is trying to emulate. and I know a pi cant touch any xbox in (lets call it) "horsepower"

Re: WiFi repeater

i did this. and it worked good. but you need a usb wifi dongle.
you can let the onboard wifi handle the internet connection because it is faster.
and then your devices can connect to the usb wifi dongle
bridged conncection (I think)
do your homework first. not all usb wifi dongles can do this.

Re: High Wattage Remote Relay

maybe a pi controlling a servo from a separate power source
and servo push/pull a mechanical switch

no electrical contact needed. less chance of shorting out your pi with a power spike or surge

Re: Share HDD with windows and Pi

Simple....
Have the external had attached and mounted to the pi.
Then share it on network.
Then, if you want, you can map the drive to your pc.
Windows can not see or use a Linux partition though. Remember that
