Re: What software does this Forum run on?

I'm quite impressed with this forum, it's quite easy to use and simple to navigate and I like the thing that gets you to add two numbers together - is this all running on BuddyPress or something else?

Re: My Ideal Raspberry Pi Case

<r>I'm actually sat next to what I think for me looks like being close to the ideal case for a Raspberry - at least in overall design - one of the old FON 2.0 routers - my ideal unit of course would also have built in WiFi, but with the same removable antenna <br/> <br/> <URL url="http://www.roboops...

Re: Form factor

<t>I think a lot of the people that are drawn to the Raspberry Pi because they think it's Tiny aren't thinking about using the device in the REAL World with all those cables it will need plugged into it to make it work.<br/> <br/> on it's own as a circuit board, sure it's small.

Re: So: what do you all think about the Model A news?

Thread seems to be going off topic somewhat, but to answer the original question I'm very pleased both models will have the same amount of RAM.

It will give the Model A a much greater life span.

Re: Ebay UK £5 Voucher = Free SD card!

There's supposed to be 50,000 vouchers, have they really all gone by now?

I guess you only find out AFTER you agree to purchase?
