Tips for building a circuit to interrupt power to an SSD?

Hi, I want to build some hardware / software to test how consumer grade SSDs handle sudden loss of power. I have a couple Pis and I'm hoping I can use one to control a self made circuit. I'm not quite sure what type of circuit I should be trying to build though. I'd really appreciate some advice. Th...

Re: NCIX Canada has a $7 WiFi adapter this weekend.

<t>I should have put 05-May-2012 in the title and can't edit it now <br/> <br/> Just in case anyone is looking for a cheap WiFi adapter…  I have one of these and it seems to be working ok.  NCIX has them on sale in Canada this weekend.  Hopefully that link works.  The promo is from their weekly news...

Re: Trying to get an RTL8188CUS wireless USB NIC working.

<t>Everything is mostly working for me too.  I get a couple wpa_supplicant errors, but it'll associate and grab an IP address, so it shouldn't be too tough to get the rest of the configuration right.<br/> <br/> Thanks for the note on blacklisting the old module ajtag.  That fixed my problems with my...

Re: Trying to get an RTL8188CUS wireless USB NIC working.

<t>Omer's guide links that wiki, but I must have been half asleep and didn't follow the link to that driver.  According to bredman's link, the firmware for RTL8192U based devices isn't bundled with firmware-realtek and needs to be provided by the user.<br/> <br/> I might have to figure out how to ge...

Re: Re-generate OpenSSH host keys on first boot.

Most Raspberry Pis running the Debian images are probably sharing the same private key at the moment.  Users can re-generate them by hand…rm /etc/ssh/ssh_host_* && dpkg-reconfigure openssh-server

Re: Trying to get an RTL8188CUS wireless USB NIC working.

<t>Hi,<br/> <br/> Please let me know if there"s a better way to format plain text.  The "paste as plain text" option doesn"t seem to do much.<br/> <br/> I"m using the debian6-13-04-2012 image.  I have one of these.  It"s got an RTL8188CUS chipset.  After following the WiFi instructions here, I plug ...
