Re: Pi-based spectrophotometer

To obtain a cuvette in glass - low qty etc, just search the keyword 'Cuvette' on ebay co uk.
You will find quite a few of them. Plastic 4ml x 25 at £6.25 for example Good luck with the project.

Re: Raspbian Server Edition?

Search for Geek101 and see Tony Hughes' and related posts. Also look for 'baked raspberry pi mod' which makes installation of server components and changes very easy. (No affliation, disclaimer etc)

Re: Preloaded SD Cards

We have had a lot of success with Kingston 8gb SDHC class 4 cards with not a single failure in any of several Raspberry Pis. Kingston also gives a lifetime manufacturer's warranty on the SD card. There are quite a few sellers on eBay. Just one example Kingston 8gb SD card with a resized Debian parti...

Re: HELP

I am using Kingston 8gb class 4 SD cards with the Debian 19-04-2012 image resized to use the full partition. These have been trouble free on many Raspberry Pi's. Suppliers on eBay are quite reasonably priced and usually come with fast delivery. It's worth ordering separately when invited to order. V...

Re: Status of SD card compatibility - What should I buy?

We are having continued success with Kingston 8 GB SD class 4 cards in many RPi with Debian Squeeze in a resized partition. It looks as if RS are having shortages at ordering time - and they are a bit pricey. There are a few suppliers on eBay for example http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/8GB-SD-Card-Raspber...

Re: RS invited me to order but ......

There are a number of reputable sellers on eBay with SD cards preloaded with Debian RPi squeeze to get you started. I found the Kingston 8gb SDHC class 4 card with a resized partition to be very good. For example http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/8GB-SD-Card-Raspberry-Pi-Debian-Squeeze-Kingston-Tested-Parti...

Re: How to resize Debian for 8GB SD Card - No reader, just USB

<t>Seems this should be easier, but I created the 2Gb Debian Rpi image using Windows tools Win32DiskImager to an 8GB SD card. I now want to resize the partition to make use of all 8GB. I have a separate machine running UBuntu which has an internal OEM card reader, which connects into a USB port. Whe...
