Re: Case for under £1.50 in 3 colours available at Morrisson

There are no video or sound outputs because i am currently only using HDMI but if you need sound and video holes use a craft knife (or hot micro-bore copper pipe) to cut the holes

Case for under £1.50 in 3 colours available at Morrissons

Found an ideal receptacle for the RaspberryPi in my local Morrisons supermarket. It comes in 3 colours, the one in the images below, Aqua and Hot Pink. The best bit of course being that they only cost £1.19 each, apparently they are also available in Tesco for £1 but Morrissons is round the corner a...

Re: raspberry pi foundation raspbian image

Thanks a million folks for all your hard work. I downloaded the torrent this morning and I am currently seeding. I used Ubuntu ImageWriter to burn the SD card image and everything works perfectly so far, with one exception: on first boot I used the config util to resize the partition and it refused ...

External HDD

I have a Pluscom 3.5" IDE to USB2.0 Enclosure with an old 40GB hard drive installed in it which is fully functional when plugged into the Raspberry Pi. I didn't test it before doing the firmware upgrade so not sure if it would function prior to that. I used a 4 port (un-powerd) USB hub (£1 from Poun...

Re: Punnet - a print at home cardboard case

chris_c wrote I made the circular holes square mind as cutting round holes is a pita :) I used a method I remembered from many many many decades ago when i was at in my 1st year of school... I punched lots of holes with a sharp pin (be careful children) round the circumference of the 'holes' and th...

Re: CIT KB-18707UB keyboard induces panic

Thanks Dom, I did read the troubleshooting guide about updating the firmware, unfortunately I couldn't get logged into the Pi to do it until I got a functional keyboard (Catch 22) That said the CIT is a rather cheap and nasty keyboard with no LEDs whereas the new Trust is almost as good as the Cherr...

Re: Punnet - a print at home cardboard case

the sticky pads are actually Anti Skid Rubber pads, or rather one pad cut into 4. I got a pack of 56 for 59p from Home Bargain (UK) unfortunately I can't tell you anything more about them except they have a DIY logo on the pack

Re: Punnet - a print at home cardboard case

Thanks very much E for your latest punnet pdf file. I got my Pi yesterday ( Yay! :D ) I bought an A4 sheet of mylar from my local stationers for 35p and laid it on top of your design and traced out the lines and I now have a rather pretty case. I did modify one of the fold over tabs so it slides int...

CIT KB-18707UB keyboard induces panic

The CIT KB-1807UB usb keyboard does not work with the RaspberryPi despite the claims that it is Linux compatible. It induces panic mode when connected. And thanks to the folks maintaining the trouble shooting Wiki page it was really helpful resolving the problem and the link to peripherals that do w...
