Re: Future 3D Printed RPi board?

No, the question is still why should anyone want to print and assemble their own Pi instead of buying one for $35? Don't get me wrong, a 3D printer is a cool toy, but it is not cost-effective for mass-produced items. As for 'tweaking' the capabilities of the Pi, there is real evidence that people d...

Re: Availability in CANADA

I went with Newark when I got two A+ models recently. The shipping was pretty expensive but it was somewhat of an impulse buy. At least they arrived very fast. Next time I might look into going with a brick and mortar store instead.

Re: Getting a TL-WN725N wifi card working on an A+?

Getting cards known to "just work" definitely would have made things simpler in many ways. I have the cards already though so I would like to figure out how to get them working. What situations can cause a USB device known to work in other computers not to show up in the lsusb listing on the Pi?

Getting a TL-WN725N wifi card working on an A+?

I recently purchased a couple of the A+ models and installed Raspbian on them (one's for a gift). I already had a TP-Link TL-WN725N wireless card (which I use regularly in a laptop) and found it on the list at http://www.elinux.org/RPi_USB_Wi-Fi_Adapters . I was not sure whether it was the version 1...

I have to say that last Intel-based one has got me interested.

Re: Introduce yourself!

I am a computer science student from Canada (Toronto area) and recently bought a couple of the A+ models. One is a gift for a friend's son who's interested in learning to program, and the other is for my own experimentation. Python is the computer language I'm the most comfortable in.

Re: Cheap, small, backup 4:3 screen

I know Adafruit has a few 4:3 screens with composite input, but they don't have cases and they are quite a bit smaller than 10" (biggest is something like 3.5".)
