Re: Best and worst song lyrics

"Teenage kicks right through the night !!! "

As they were my hometown band, we thought they were great!

(Unfortunately it was not until later in life when I worked with one of the band members I found out what it means !)

Great for the dance floor, even for a 47yr old!

Re: what happened to my SD Card?

Know any good programs for sorting out USB Thumb Drives?.

Got one in a drawer, 8GB that I used with an Android Tablet. It went down to 2GB now nothing.

Would like to use it again.

If you can't download for any reason, most cameras will also fully format.

Crazy thing is the camera formated the SD card with 80mb too!

Re: Leaving Pi plugged in to TV messes with AV devices!

Does this happen if you change which hdmi socket the pi is plugged into?

I'm aware that you can set the priorty setting in some tv's, the system will check that hdmi socket first before allowing anything else to connect to the system.
