Re: STICKY: Errata

Page 12, "Compute Module Motherboard." The team at resin.io inform us that the pre-release versions of the Fin board was able to work with eMMC-populated modules. However the released board will NOT support eMMC-populated modules. It is intended for operation only with modules not already populated ...

Re: How to electrocute yourself

We've replaced the tutorial with Make A Talking Web Browser (that was scheduled for Issue 68). In the interim we removed the tutorial from the PDF (hence the two missing pages). Perhaps you have a cached copy? Refresh your browser and you should get the new one including a new contents, cover, welco...

Re: How to electrocute yourself

Hi, Just to let everyone know we have taken steps to address this. We've reprinted the magazine with a replacement tutorial which will be on the newsstand, and have changed the digital edition. This email has just been sent to everybody who received a subscription print copy. We've been hearing from...

Re: Where to buy AIY Vision Kit UK?

We are running a competition to give away 10 Vision Kits so enter that while you wait. Google is producing more kits and they should be coming out in the next few months (fingers crossed). I can't give an exact price as I know they're juggling the exact components, but it won't be anywhere near that...

Re: STICKY: Errata

It refers to the Menu Item which is listed as Programming > Python 3 (IDLE).

I like to refer to the precise menu item names so as not to confuse newcomers (who might look for Python 3 (IDLE3) in the menu but not find it and wonder if their installation is wrong).

Re: Magpie magazine free desktop disc.

The disc is a DVD, not a CD.

Are you sure the Mac has a DVD drive and not an old CD drive (Apple sold CD drives for longer than other makers). You can check using Apple > About This Mac.

Re: Magpi DVD Install

I had it running on a Thinkpad T420 alongside Windows using two separate hard drives. Even that is a bit cranky and it's best to have Linux as your Primary boot drive and Windows as the Secondary drive (as GRUB can load Raspberry Pi Desktop and Windows). I wouldn't go near partitioning on a single d...

Re: Google Voice project

If you are using the MagPi instructions, be aware that in Step 10, the last command should say mv client_secret_[123etc] /home/pi/assistant.json Otherwise Step 14 won't run properly... Google changed from client_secrets.json to assistant.json, however, it should work no matter what you call the fil...

Re: client_secrets.json vs assistant.json

That's what I thought. But I don't want to tell people to put whatever they want as it gets confusing for tutorials. I'd rather just have the one file naming convention

Re: Charges for Google cloud service

The Assistant SDK is free and the charge is for the Cloud Speech API. The system is designed to have plenty enough free for development and testing. Google told me that nobody would be charged without plenty of notice and agreeing to a charge first. So keep an eye on the free credit counter, but it ...
