Re: SD card sticking out ? Use RSMMC

I'm considering ordering the Norcent one since I might need a 2GB standrd microSD (non HC) card for something else, not so much for the R-Pi but rather my MacBook Pro. If you are a MacBook Pro (as well as a RasPi) owner, I am sure you will be interested in the item mentioned by 'bircoe' on the firs...

Re: SD card sticking out ? Use RSMMC

I believe your word for it, but it probably will not work. It looks like it can work as microSD adapter to SD adapter OR to USB card reader. Cutting it out will left you with a pice of junk plastic. But I could be wrong... The idea is to just cut off the USB part and it should work, however there i...

Re: SD card sticking out ? Use RSMMC

Another option is a combo adapter for micro SD to SD/USB then just cut off the USB side of the adapter. What do you mean? Any links to this kind adapter? cheers, Kind of hard to see it but here's one on ebay that someone has cut the USB off of to make it flush with a macbook pro. http://www.ebay.co...

Re: Built-to-spec case?

Just got mine today, I ordered it 4 days ago and it was postmarked 2 days ago. I do like the hand written "Thanks" on the reciept, otherwise after peeling all the paper off of it it was easy to put together, just a pit of a pain around the light pipes.

His case is the best out. Check out the video review I made today. Mine is the only translucent one out there so far :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZY2Z1FR3Ptw&feature=youtube_gdata_player How much did it cost for it to be done by special request?

Built-to-spec case?

Has anyone else here ordered one of these? I went ahead and ordered one since it was slightly more than the cost of a single Bud Pi Sandwich case would cost to order and the actual laser shop is in my state so thought might as well try it and ordered one in black (sadly the translucent purple was so...

Re: Raspberry Pi Case from Bud

Ordered two of these on Monday and received them Wednesday - I'm in the USA and ordered them from Newark/element14. Paid less than $20 total including shipping. (Again, this was for 2 units) The case is very simple but effective - not air-tight, but not designed to be. It effectively shields the bo...

Re: Raspberry Pi Case from Bud

I like the case, but it costs more to ship the case than the cost of the case to ship it making the total price the same as ordering a case from overseas.

Re: SD card sticking out ? Use RSMMC

I happened to be looking at a SD card in a bright light and it looked like the memory chip only came half way up the card so it may be possible to hacksaw an ordinary card in half. Caveat Emptor! Now that you mention it, I am sure I once read an article confirming that was indeed possible... perhap...

Re: media keyboard issues?

yes Dell keybaords with usb hubs take more power than the RPi can throw at them, either use a powered hub or a dumber keyboard I'd go for option1 actually I found a spare, simple keyboard at my parents house as well as a small 4 port USB hub with 2.5A power supply so I should be in business now. :D

I recieved my R-Pi a couple weeks ago right before going out of town and having an exam after getting back into town, well when I finally got around to trying it out I had issues with my keyboard lagging and then randomly treating a key like it's held down, when testing with my other systems no issu...

I just got an email saying my order has been processed and shipped, which is nicely timed as I had almost sent an email about possibly cancelling to go fund a different project, guess I'll have 3 ARM computer projects going at one time :D

I ordered on February 29th, and was told by e-mail mine would be shipping the week of May 29th. It did not ship and the date's been moved back until June 21st. That's ridiculous -- people ordering after me have receiver theirs. I ordered March 13, had my ship date move from April to August to June ...
