Re: Free 4GB SD Cards!

Just a bump for anyone who wants a free SD Card. I've posted a fair number around the world now to various people, and have plenty more to send out :)

Re: Free 4GB SD Cards!

Hopefully if I get to the stage of having enough tutorials to warrant extra categories, then it'd be a doddle to arrange in an orderly manner. EG, you could have categories on: 1) Default linux distribution installation 2) Installing hardware 3) Media Centre guides 4) Emulator guides etc etc, it's r...

Re: Free 4GB SD Cards!

Hi, 2 Reasons really: 1) A wiki, unless you're conversant with it's percularities and mark-up, isn't user friendly for people to submit information to. Whereas mine uses BBCode, so if you can use a forum, you can submit a tutorial. 2) These forums aren't user friendly, it's a very basic setup and no...

Free 4GB SD Cards!

Hi all, I'm giving away free 4GB SD Cards to every person who submits a Raspberry Pi tutorial. It can be on anything Raspberry Pi related. I'm hoping to build a useful "how-to / tutorial" database for people to use, and the best way to get it off the ground is a bit of bribery :lol: http://www.rpifo...

Re: Game Over For The Raspberry Pi Already?

Minature computers like the Pi and the NUC can only really benefit us in the long run. If more people become interested in computing then more ideas are realised, and new technology is born.

Ok, maybe not exactly! May well be some other 'types' on the market soon, although the price will be hard to beat I'm sure.

Re: Commercially available RPI cases? Are there any yet?

I'm building a little review section for RPI cases, rounding them all up with all the details (price, website etc) and the only commercially available one I can find is the modmypi.com case. Are there any others out there yet? (Google is proving useless!)

Thanks

If you want to control the engine, you'll be better off with Megasquirt tbh.
