Re: Javascript not working

In your opinion (scuse the pressure) then, is it safe to assume that it is my programming that is at fault (which is fine by the way, as I've never written a website in my life)?

Re: Raspbian image won't work on RPi 3

I've never had a problem with Raspberry Pi 2, I have a network of 36 raspberry pi's working all RPi 2. I have only ever had one image for a Raspberry Pi 3, and have never successfully got another one working. I can't be the only person with this problem.
